Have you been dreaming of having a destination wedding or elopement in Iceland? Can you already see yourself having an adventurous and intimate wedding in the epic Icelandic landscape, maybe in it’s capital Reykjavik or somewhere around the Ring Road, like Black Sand Beach or the icy coast of Jökulsárlón? Of course you can combine your destination wedding with a super romantic honeymoon in Iceland or a post wedding couple shoot in one of these regions.

Wedding Photographer in Iceland

I am Renate van Dijk and I am a destination wedding photographer and the founder of Wit Photography. I specialize in weddings abroad in Europe and I am based in The Hague, London and Belgrade. I photograph weddings everywhere in Europe and I love destination weddings, especially the more intimate destination weddings with a low number of guests are my favourite kind. Have a look at my wedding photography portfolio and find out where I have been because of this passion.



I would love to shoot your wedding in Iceland because I think Iceland is an amazing country. When you drive through the country the landscape seems to change every five minutes (and so does the weather by the way). And those landscapes are to die for! Apart from that I’m addicted to travel (I once travelled 2×4 hours in a train to just be able to be in Paris for two hours for a photo shoot) but my favourite thing to do while travelling is to shoot two awesome people in the most epic places in the world!

I can give you lots of tips on having a stress free destination wedding. I often travel to Iceland for weddings abroad and I grab every opportunity to travel through this fantastic country.

Previously I photographed in Vík, Reykjavik, Hekla, Gjáin and Háifoss. And I can’t wait to shoot more weddings, elopements and love shoots in other Icelandic locations! So don’t hesitate to contact me if you are looking for a photographer for your elopement or wedding in Iceland. I can’t wait to hear all about your wedding plans.



In case you’re looking for a wedding venue in Iceland, a wedding planner or a cake maker feel free to contact me as well, I’ll gladly help you out!

I will help you with finding the best vendors for your wedding in Iceland. And I’m pretty sure we will find the perfect match for you and your partner so that everything on your wedding day will be as you imagined it would be.

how I work


With all the stress that comes with organising a wedding, the last thing you need is to worry about cramping your day into 8 hours of wedding photography. Your wedding is the only wedding I’ll shoot that weekend. As a matter of fact I’ll be with you the entire day. I don't care if your wedding is 6 hours or 16 hours, actually I prefer capturing the whole story of your day. For me the real work starts after the wedding day, when I start editing you images.


Unlike other photographers, you can print your photos wherever you want. You receive all your photos fully edited and in high-resolution, so you can do with them whatever you want. You can even print your own wall-art and albums (of course I can also arrange those for you if you prefer) and you can keep all your digital files safe wherever you want, without any extra costs.


I traveled all over the world, photographed in all types of weather circumstances and shot weddings as big as 200 guests and as small as 11 guests. With my experience you don’t have to worry about a thing. Shooting in the snow in Austria/with lots of bright light in Italy/in a dark castle in Scotland/while being sandblasted in Iceland? I’ve done it! Plus my pricing includes travel costs within Western Europe, I speak English (and Dutch) at near-native level, we can meet in London or Holland beforehand and I am familiar with all the English, Dutch and American wedding customs and traditions.

Now you know a bit about me, I would love to hear more about you! I would love to hear all of your plans and ideas for your wedding. Please fill in this email form or email me your story in your own words at so I can see if me and my photography are a fit for your wedding. When you fill in the form and tell me about your plans I will email or call you back asap (at least within 48 hours) to let you know my availability for your wedding in Iceland.

'Renate was so easy to work with'
Marina & Stephen about their destination wedding in Serbia

'Having our wedding in a different country meant that we had a briefing with Renate over email which was as successful as in person as we were asked the right questions that put us at ease... On the day of our wedding celebration Renate was so easy to work with... She was responsive to all our requests as well as being non-intrusive and told the story of our day with main points beautifully captured... We are happy customers with photos to show it.'
