Therefore, if visiting the above areas between September – March there is a good chance you may have the opportunity for northern lights night wedding photos… So dare to dream!

#2: Iconic Tourist Location

Although, we try to stay away from typical tourist locations when we craft our adventure wedding itineraries, having night wedding photos at them can be magical!  For example, this fabulous location is Reynisfjara Black Beach and Reynisdrangar Basalt Stacks in Iceland.  But do make sure you double check weather conditions and if any permits or permissions are needed before you venture to an iconic tourist location at night.

#3: Lava Tube Night Wedding Photos

Next, most times in lava tubes, night wedding photos can be done during the day too!  One of the coolest things about having adventure night wedding photos in a lava tube  is that the icicles build from the ground up!  For instance, you’ll see in front of the couple below, upside down icicles from water dripping and building.  Super cool effect for night time wedding photos!  Note: Our adventure elopement photographers are skilled in off camera flash as well to be able to craft unique lighting situations.

#4: Nighttime Waterfall Wedding Photos

Have you ever experienced a waterfall at night?  It can be a very inspiring moment between the two of you!  After all, your adventure wedding day does not have to end once the sun goes down 😉

#5: Historical Landmark Nighttime Elopement Photos

If you’re getting married in a historical area of the world, why not have night wedding photos at a historical landmark?  However, please be aware that you may need a permit in advance to do so.  Meanwhile, enjoy this fabulous inspiration image which is from the Dalen Fairytale Hotel in Norway.  Even the rain can add an extra ambiance to the elopement portraits!

#6: Nighttime Cave Photos

Caves throughout the world have created shelter from the elements.  Firstly, exploring a cave as the last thing you do on your adventure elopement night is also very exciting!  Secondly, adding a bit more drama to the situation by ground fireworks or sparklers can also amp up the energy level too!

#7: Wedding Photos inside a Canyon at Night

Calling all true hearted extreme adventurers!  Grab those helmets, headlamps, and flashlights and discover a canyon at night!  Special Note: Please be very aware of the area by connecting with locals who know how the rivers ebb and flow so you avoid trouble!  Bonus too, if your photographer is capable in off camera flash you could get dreamy night wedding photos such as the below!
