Adventure Wedding Photos in Norway

I arrived in Bergen, Norway and it was pouring rain. Jennifer and Sondre were so kind and hospitable. Excitement was in the air to photograph them in the beautiful scenic backdrops we had planned. We set out to hike far in the wilderness to get some epic wedding photos, close to 22 miles. As we were hiking, we discovered the trail was hidden by snow. Thus, we had to turn around. The dangerous cliffs, plus the visibility would be pretty horrible on top of wet hair and droopy makeup that would eventually show.

Since it was pouring rain, my couple said they wanted to fly north of Norway the following day to get some sun. It’s difficult to get images in the rain. Besides, this new mountain region was a destination I had wanted to hike anyway. The locations I had researched were still fresh in my head. I had never seen any couples getting married there, just lonley hikers. Let’s just say I like photograph wedding couples where wedding couples usually have never gone.

The New Adventure

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 on close to 2hours of sleep, we jumped on an early flight and headed to Tromso, Norway. We drove quite a while through the fall colors. After arriving in the general area, we began asking locals for directions to the mountain and started hiking. Up the mountains and hills, we darted upward, not knowing exactly where we were going or the exact mountain I had seen before. However, we finally found it after scouring the mountain. Not only did we find the epic mountain, but the perfect sunset with our adventurous couple.

After staying until sundown, we flew to a different part of the country with little sleep again. Ready to hike to another location for more adventure wedding photos, we fueled up on carbs and crossed many bridges. The day was cut short because my couple had prior commitments. However, 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!

Here’s a snowy winter adventure elopement at Yosemite National Park with a few family members gathered for my last wedding of the year.  I received a call from a wonderful Nashville couple, Victoria and Richard, who wanted to elope in Yosemite and they were hoping for a winter wedding.  The week prior to their wedding it snowed and provided some epic landscape photos for us to explore and experience. They opted for the adventure, intimate and small, which is what I do often in the mountains.  They stayed and got ready at the Tenaya Lodge and then met me down in Yosemite Valley for their wedding at the famous Yosemite Chapel.  After they exchanged vows at the alter, they celebrated with the ringing the bell that echoed in the wilderness  As they walked out of the church, the traffic of vehicles congested along the main road celebrated in unison with honks.

I had a rad time hiking in the snow with my couple and enjoying the beautiful flavor the wilderness around us.  Here are a few images from their snowy wintery wedding Yosemite.
