Photographed by Adventure Instead


We began hiking in the wee hours of the morning so this couple could have a sunrise ceremony overlooking this incredible turquoise lake. We were in Patagonia, the place known for wild winds and unpredictable weather, and some of the most breathtaking and versatile landscapes imaginable. Once we arrived at the lake, the couple changed from hiking attire to their wedding attire. We waited a few moments in the frigid weather until the sunlight started hitting the peaks. Knowing that we were about to witness a spectacular sunrise, it was time for them to break out their vow books and begin their wedding ceremony.

The most important thing about this shot was really showing off the scenery and the couple within it. The sunlight was hitting the peaks, but not yet hitting the couple yet, so a correct exposure was key!
