Faroe Islands Engagement Session

I can't believe I am just now getting around to blogging this epic pre-wedding shoot! I have wanted to visit the Faroe Islands for years now, so this finally happening was nothing short of amazing! The Faroe Islands still remain a place that is pretty much untouched by man, making the experience truly magical. I felt like I was taking my clients to never-before seen locations, which added to the excitement! If you are considering going somewhere unique and breathtaking for your engagements or elopement, the Faroe Islands should be on your list! I hope I get to go back soon because there are so many places I want to explore!

Ok—enough of me rambling! This is what Candice had to say about her and Steven’s experience with me!

"To be honest, we both had never heard of the place before as we live in our bubble in Hong Kong. I found Tyler on Instagram and he was the only photographer my fiancé and I both agreed on. Europe is our favorite part of the world and we were already planning a trip there during summer. When I reached out to Tyler he had just planned a trip to Iceland and suggested that we meet him somewhere around Iceland. He gave us a few choices like Ireland, Iceland, the Faroe islands, Norway and Scotland and we chose the Faroe Islands because of the pictures we found online. (Even though we had no idea how to get there, we just settled without a blink.) 

Since the country is so remote, there was literally nothing there. Tyler’s rental car “ran out” the night he landed and we all couldn’t find any information about our hikes but we just went with it! It took us an hour drive to buy a bouquet in the morning as well! The area has erratic weather and during our hikes, it was always raining and windy so my our hair was not happy. When we got to the top though, everything was so worth it. All the sites were somewhere I've never thought of ever seeing in my life and the perfect word would be EPIC!

There were so many struggles such as sheep poop everywhere and we tried to walk barefoot, raining during our hikes, trespassing hiking trails, getting stuck on an island because there was no ferry back, and Tyler almost missing his flight. These were in hindsight such amazing memories that I will remember for a lifetime especially for this special occasion. Also, Tyler had the ability to capture all these beautiful memories despite all the hardships. We’re so happy with the photos and adventure."
