Saga
Portrait Photoshoot
in Iceland

Bettina Vass Photography | Iceland Engagement | Elopement | Wedding Photographer

So the whole month of June was  basically rainy and cold in Reykjavík. So far this has been one of the worst summers that I can remember of since I moved here. At least regarding basic summer things like you know, sunlight and temperatures above 5°C.


In spite of gloomy weather me and Saga decided to go to the Reykjanes Peninsula and take some nice pictures of her since it finally looked like it would clear up a bit. A nice bonus is that we have for the most part non stop daylight here during the summer months with extremely long lasting sunsets. Since I love using the soft lights of the sunset we left the house around 9 pm. and came back around midnight.

I really enjoy working with Saga, she is a good model and really good company. We did have a little freaky situation though during the shoot which stopped my heartbeat for a second. Saga accidentally lost her footing at one point causing her to slip down a pebble hillside. I kinda freaked out! Thankfully nothing happened and she did not hurt herself but it was a good reminder how dangerous Icelandic nature can be. Even though I know the area pretty well, having wrong shoes or getting a sudden change in the weather can be dangerous or extremely challenging.
