Perspective: ‘We are Aly and Zach, graphic designers from Seattle, WA. We have been married for almost 4 years now and love traveling the world. We have been to Greece, Japan, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and many states across the USA! We both love photography, but have never made the time for photos of the two of us together. We are so excited to work with you and create lasting memories on our trip to Iceland.’
’We are so excited to experience Iceland and to meet you soon. The day of the 19th, we are planning to do the photoshoot and then relax at the Blue Lagoon afterward. It is our chill day before we leave for a road trip around Iceland! We would love to meet you in Grindavik for coffee (We love a trendy coffee shop with an oat milk latte haha) then drive over to the peninsula together.’
’These are amazing!! You are so incredibly talented!! Thanks so much Bettina!’

’Bettina is not only a talented photographer, but is someone you can become instant friends with. She is sweet and makes you feel comfortable behind the camera. We spent most of the day with her and Baldur, driving around to beautiful locations. It was so nice capturing high quality memories of our time in Iceland and something we will cherish forever. We hope to see Bettina and Baldur again some day, and we can’t thank them enough!’
