Take a look at one couple's extravagant Icelandic engagement photo shoot

A couple travelled all the way from Canada to Iceland to get the most extravagant engagement shoot of a lifetime.

Cici and Clement went to Iceland with two cinematographers, two photographers and an experienced tour guide for one week to get the photos they’ve always dreamed of to share and display at their wedding.

The couple are no strangers to travel, having toured Asia and Europe together and wanted to do something different for their engagement shoot. Their initial idea to do “a mini-shoot in Stanley Park” at home in Vancouver, transformed into an exotic adventure in some of the most otherworldy landscapes on earth in Iceland.

The project was set up by cinematography and photography studio Life Studios Inc who worked with the couple to tailor their cinematic adventure.

The pair couple the dramatic glacial landscapes and Nordic street scenes with high fashion. If it interests you, Life Studios Inc are looking for the right couples to travel to inspirational places to photograph, such as the Rainbow Mountains of Zhangye, the Yuanyang Terraced Fields of China, the halls of Versailles or the Swiss Alps.

Cici and Clement’s engagement shoot may have been extravagant but they seemed to have stayed in one place for their wedding, unlike the Norwegian newlyweds who hiked up a mountain to take their perfect wedding shots.
