This was actually day one of the Reset to Rise Workshop. Photographer Jordan Voth hung out with us in the morning for breakfast and talked about his photography business, offered advice, and answered just a crap ton of questions. We had three couples to photograph in wedding dresses on this day and dang we were ready!
Before I go any further, please check out this incredible list of vendors that we got to work with!

Our first stop of the day was Reynisdragar, a black sand beach with killer views. We walked/climbed over boulders forever to get away from the mass of people on the beach, but it was gorgeous. 10/10 would do it again. The couple below would be engaged by the end of this shoot at the beach, but Mariana had no idea he was planning to propose!
Also, it was really freaking windy!
When we were finished shooting at the black sand beach. Vic, one of the workshop hosts, had Mariana look at her to do a few of just her with Justin in the background. All the photographers were on this side of them, this has to be one of the most documented proposals in history.
When Mariana turned around, Justin was down on one knee and asked her to marry him. At least, I assume that’s what happened because she accepted the ring, cried, and kissed him. But, the sound of the waves of the ocean crashing on the shore kept that little bit private just for the two of them. Congratulations Justin and Mariana, I wish you the very best in your wedding and marriage!
We wrapped up the day at the DC-3 Airplane Crash, which was really freaking cool. We were leaving there like after midnight, but that Icelandic midnight sun was burning bright and beautiful.
I was really, really excited to see the plane. Obviously.
Part three coming soon! 🙂
