You may have seen some unique wedding and engagement photos online, but you’ve likely never seen a couple go to such great heights as these Norwegian lovers.
For Erik Gjømle from Bamble and Marit Therese Rognmo from Tromsø, no regular wedding photo would do. So the newlywed couple contacted photographer Stan Serdjukov with an idea for a truly unique setting. 
 
The couple asked the photographer to lug his equipment on a 3.4 kilometre hike that took them 900 metres above sea level to the peak of Vasstinden on the island of Kvaløya. 
 
There, Serdjukov used the midnight sun to capture photos and video that can only be described as both beautiful and unique. 
 
 
“Wedding photography is my passion and I have mixed it with landscape photography before. But it was always on the ground, this was my first time doing it so high up,” Serdjukov told The Local.
 
“It was not easy going up with the drone, photo and video equipment. But it was absolutely worth it!" he added.

Gjømle told broadcaster NRK that he and his new wife changed into their wedding attire after the long hike up above the clouds. 
 
“It was a bit of a hassle. There is of course no wardrobe up there. I think she thought it was a bit cold after a while. After all, there was snow up there on top and she had bare shoulders,” he said.

Serdjukov told The Local that he had just recently purchased a drone and was “super excited” to try it out with the new couple. He said the feedback to his photos and video has been amazing. 
 
“It’s good for me because my dream is to travel around the world photographing and filming weddings,” he said.
