A bold gay elopement in Iceland

Andres and Juan’s Styled Elopement Amidst Iceland’s Stark Beauty

Tell us the inspiration behind the shoot.

The inspiration came from Andres and Juan’s love, a wild and inexhaustible love, like the wild nature of Iceland. We chose this location because of the contrast between the black color of the sand and the white of the veils, and we chose to design special veils for them to capture the strong wind of nature and create movement and dynamism.


What are the key styling elements of the styled inspiration, and who brought them to life?

The idea of the veils came from photographer Juan Cordero. He wanted to capture the wind and the wild nature of Iceland in elegant images full of strength, introducing an element that normally should not be present in the session.

Andres and Juan’s Story

What has been the biggest challenge they have had to overcome together?

Our biggest challenge was to keep our relationship at a distance for a year, but we learned to communicate better and strengthened our connection.


If you could give your youngest a talk of encouragement for the future, what would you say?

Guys! Learn from the challenges, assume the adverse situations with flexibility so that they learn to replace them, pursue your dreams with confidence, and surely that, in the end, you will be rewarded.


Tell us what you like the most about each other.

We support each other; we are friends, lovers, and accomplices.


What does the future hold for you?

We hope that the future will include a more focused approach to sustainability, with technological advances that contribute to addressing environmental and social challenges.
