A Canadian couple has turned their engagement shoot into the stuff of “epic” Internet fame. Cici and Clement were determined to get one-of-a-kind pre-wedding photos, and so they flew an entire photography and videography crew out to Iceland for a week-long photo excursion.
You’re probably not alone if you’re thinking the idea seems both extreme, and extremely expensive, but the couple got what they were looking for. Thanks to a team of photographers and videographers from Life Studios, Inc. the photos and video of their so-called “Wild Love” excursion are sweeping across the world under headlines like “Are these the most epic engagement photos EVER?“.
And, well… they just might be.
The couple and their crew spent five days shooting across the entire Island—atop volcanoes, inside glacier-cut caves, and beneath the Northern Lights. But as unexpected as this kind of job might sound, to hear Life Studios tell it, this is exactly the kind of work they hope for.
“Our goal is always to draw out our clients’ vision and bring their ideas to life,” says creative director Jacob Wasef. “We prime their imagination and encourage them to think big, and our commitment to do the same often leads us to some pretty wild ideas—like the Iceland shoot!”
The final concept was all about contrast, “capturing young love and extraordinary luxury in the most unlikely of locales: the Far North.” It was high fashion vs wild nature.
Enduring heavy rains, gale-force winds, and sometimes perilous perches on shifting ice and sand, the couple were captured in high style—in tuxes, ties, and flowing gowns in a rainbow of colours—on locations from Skógafoss Waterfall to Reynisfjara black sand beach, Skaftafell Nature Park, and the incredible Jökulsárlón Lagoon.
So, are these in fact that most epic engagement photos ever? Scroll down and find out:
