Fagradalsfjall Volcano Engagement Session


Ágota and Þórdur met during their university years in Hungary. They immediately hit it off and a few years after that they moved back to Iceland where he is from. They got their first apartment together, got engaged and ended up celebrating on the top of an erupting volcano.
I am the very lucky third wheel of the story who could tag along on their epic helicopter trip to create memories for them. It wasn’t my first time at the volcano but from the area where the helicopter dropped us down the view was unbelievable that I haven’t seen before. There were literally no one around us and we could completely soak into the experience. I am not sure I can describe the vibe and feeling of being up there surrounded by nothing but the incredible power of nature. Mind-blowing!

Thank you so much for sharing your incredible volcano day with me! I love you guys to the moon and back!

“If you are looking for a photographer who will make your special day in Iceland perfect, you found it! Bettina will make you feel so at ease in front of the camera, and create such a friendly and effortless environment, that you will wonder why are you not doing this every day.
We are ordinary people, and the photos that she took of us are mind blowing. Also we had one of the best days of our lives during the engagement photoshoot with her. So much fun! She knows Iceland’s best hidden gems like the back of her hand, so trust her, and her advices. The professionalism and the attention to details she puts into from the planning and organising of your experience until the final touches of each and every picture is one of a kind. I can not recommend her enough, because these are the moments of your life that you want to remember forever. She was the one, who pointed it out to us, that these are the moments, when you should just stop for a while. Enjoy them, celebrate and appreciate! And she is the person who will record them in the way, that whenever you look at those photos the emotions and the wonderful memories will come back.” – Ágota & Þórdur
