Polish + Ukrainian Dancers under an Icelandic Waterfall

Polish + Ukrainian Dancers under an Icelandic Waterfall

On an uncommonly sunny day in Icelandic spring, the sun rose bright and early…around 2:30am. Just as the sun peeked over the volcanic rock, Yana and Mario shared a kiss after 5 years of marriage. I always love anniversary sessions, and this one sure did deliver. It was a quick session since they both had to work back in Reykjavik, which was a few hours away. They are professional dancers and dance coaches! So of course, they had to show me a few of their moves during their session (and I photographed it cuz duh). Also, can we just talk about their outfits for a sec? They put the FIRE in the land of ice and fire.

One of my favorite parts about couples and engagement sessions are the long car rides with my couples. I know that might sound super weird, and maybe a little uncomfortable, but honestly, it’s the best!

Energetic and Adventurous Salt Flats Engagement

We only got lost for a hot minute before returning to our *humble* (to say the least) motel. That was another adventure for the books; but honestly, we couldn’t help but belly laugh so hard we almost started crying.

We ended the session by slow dancing under a bright pink sunset in the middle of the street to “La Vie En Rose,” Gabe’s wedding first dance song. I can’t wait for these two to get engaged and married in the future!!!

This Monday I ditched studying for staying up for almost 32 hours straight so I could accompany some incredible photog friends to an adventure. Was it a good idea? Heck no. Was it worth every second? Abso-freaking-lutely.

After leaving San Diego at 7am, Aaron, Tessera, and I spent the next two hours fangirling about the Marvel universe and talking about how you really can’t compare Christmas to the 4th of July (apparently we have a lot of opinions on those topics).
