Iceland is where it's at!! It's LONG been on my list of must visit places and it seems that it's becoming quite the popular destination for small intimate weddings or elopements. Anthony is from California, Yr is a native to Iceland. They met a few years back in downtown Reykjavik during Anthony's artist residency in Iceland, and the rest is history. Now Anthony is a citizen, and they live in a cute harbour town outside Reykjavik whilst operating their business, Reykjavik Trading Company. KELSEA HOLDER who you may remember from this incredible engagement session I featured a couple of weeks back " met this gorgeous couple via social media, and whilst they had already held an intimate ceremony the previous year, they chose to have this photo session when they learnt that Kelsea had a standby ticket to Europe. And it was SO worth it when you look at the results below... these images are so gorgeous!

Anthony and Yr were wonderful hosts, and provided some great tips and places to explore for our week-long venture around the entire island. Upon our arrival back to the city, I was thrilled to meet with them once again for our editorial shoot at the rb r Open Air Museum, filled with authentic settlements that Icelanders had lived in for centuries. The owners graciously rented the space to us. These beautiful homes are an iconic staple of old Icelandic culture. Even though the unpredictable weather in Iceland took us by surprise, the grey skies brought out the intense emeralds of the tall grass-covered buildings. And r has hair perfect for catching the cold, brisk Icelandic winds (truly!). I could not have been more inspired by this pair, their story, and their brilliant style."
