iceland engagement session

So here’s what makes this engagement shoot beautiful, aside from the obvious that it was shot in Iceland… Paige Lowe, the bride-to-be in these photos is also the photographer behind these photos. With her skills, a tripod, and a shutter remote, she was able to capture some phenomenal photos. Oh, and she was proposed to while on this trip with then bf, Keith (this was also caught on camera too btw). Crazy, right? She feels so happy she can shout it from the rooftops, and we’re so happy she’s letting us share it all. Their trip is undoubtedly surreal, like something out of a fairy-tale, and an experience we’d die to have in a heartbeat.

How they met: Keith and I were set up on a blind date back in 2008. I almost didn’t show because my sister neglected to tell him that I had just had knee surgery and had to wear a huge ugly brace from my hip to my ankle! Luckily I showed and we ended up having a whirlwind summer romance that came to an end when I had to travel back up to Oregon to finish College while he was finishing school down in California. We knew that school was our main focus and our relationship would have suffered, so we ended on good terms and parted ways. 

Now I know this is going to sound crazy, but during our two years apart, I swear that every experience I had, every mistake I made, everything I learned during that time was making me a better person not only for myself but for Keith. I grew up a lot during those two years, I had never been so sure of myself and for the first time I knew what I wanted out of life. And I knew I wanted Keith there with me. So after two years apart, I called him up and now we are getting married!

  1. SO gorgeous. Love Iceland, love the images. Would love to shoot there. :)

  2. What a wonderful photo shoot and story! Congratulations Paige and Keith!

  3. This engagement shoot is absolutely amazing…beautiful couple, gorgeous backdrop…simply wonderful!

  4. the video is too cute!

  5. This is an interesting set and a novel location–at least to me and my region of the world. And that third to last photograph looks both spectacular and spectacularly dangerous! (lol) Although I feel the photos and compositions are amazing, I’m not a big fan of the Photoshopping work, for it seems like there is no rhyme or reason for the differing styles. I suppose weddings permit for more liberties in presentation that would otherwise be scoffed at. But good photos nevertheless, especially since my critique is towards something that could easily be redone if the photographer or couple wanted it. :-)

  6. Love. I’m so blown away by this I don’t even know what to say. So refreshing, so natural and so insanely beautiful. In the world of engagements sessions I’d say this sets the bar pretty high! Truly a fun one to look at- thanks for sharing.

  7. wow wow wow! Stunning and sweet impromptu (really!?) engagement session. Can’t wait to see their wedding pics. I hope it’s one of those surprise weddings, where none of the guests know their going to a wedding. :)
