Norway Adventure Wedding Photography
Sondre and Jennifer

 

lysefjord Preikestolen wedding photos adventure elopement hiking out for destination wedding

 

I arrived in Bergen, Norway and it was pouring rain. Jennifer and Sondre were so kind and hospitable and I was excited photograph them in the beautiful scenic backdrops around the country. We set out to hike far in the wilderness to get some epic wedding photos, maybe close to 22 miles. As we were hiking, we discovered the trail was hidden by icy snow and had turn around because of the dangerous cliffs, plus the visibility would be pretty bad, on top of wet hair and droopy makeup. Since it was pouring rain, which is extremely difficult to get images, my couple just said, ‘we’re flying tomorrow to the north of Norway’, (a mountain region I had wanted to hike and explore and I had seen a few landscape images, but never any wedding couples; let’s just say I like photograph wedding couples where wedding couples usually have never gone).

So after a flat tire in the pouring rain, late at night on my rental car with bald tires and a fix-it kit that didn’t work,… (that’s another story), on close to 2hours of sleep, we jumped on an early flight and headed north to Tromso, Norway. We drove quite a while through the fall colors of the region. We arrived in the general area asking for directions from locals, parked, and then hiked up these mountains and hills, not knowing exactly where we were going or the exact mountain I had seen in images before, but we finally found it after scouring the mountain. Not only did we find the mountain, but we had the perfect sunset with a wonderful adventurous couple.

After staying there for a little, we flew to a different part of the country with little sleep again, ready to hike to another location for more wedding photos. We had to cut the day short because my couple has some prior commitments, but we captured what we needed. It was an adventure and I hope to return to explore more areas that are on my list of adventures.

Thank you Sondre and Jennifer for inviting me to capture your wedding photos!

Matt and Shannon married last month at the magical property of the Inn at Park Winters, a beautiful wedding property located in the farmland of Yolo County. I was excited to have worked with such a great team of wedding vendors from the Sacramento area which provided the electric vibe and leadership it needed to make this event more special. Thank you to Matt and Shannon for allowing me to cover your special moments and the love between the two of you.  Congratulations once again.
