Seasoned travelers CiCi Wu and Clement Ng wanted their engagement shoot to be filled with adventure and natural beauty. So they packed their bags and flew to Iceland.
For five days, the Vancouver couple, along with two videographers and two photographers from Life Studios Inc., braved the elements including temperatures that felt like 20 degrees below zero with windchill, as well as ice, heavy rain and strong winds ― all while decked out in formalwear.
“We actually had to hike about an hour in hiking shoes with spikes on the ice with my dress on because we couldn’t change there, so it was quite difficult,” Wu told Inside Edition.
Wu and Ng used heat packs, heavy clothing, ear muffs, scarves, gloves to keep warm between shots. They posed for photos in breathtaking caves and atop icebergs and volcanic rock.
“This was a unique, customized voyage through the heart of Iceland, led by a seasoned local tour guide from Extreme Iceland,” Chris Mekhail of Life Studios Inc. told InStyle. “The team traveled in a 10-foot-high Superjeep through gale-force winds, crashing hail and cruel terrain.”
Some of the jaw-dropping locations included Skógafoss waterfall, Reynisfjara black sand beach, Skaftafell National Park and Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.
“We want to be able to look back 20, 30, 40 years later and show our kids, our grandkids,” the bride told Inside Edition.
