This shoot was absolute magic.

For so long, I knew that a styled shoot was something I wanted to put together. After months of figuring out how to make it happen and second guessing myself, I decided to do just that.

I knew I wanted to do something unique and different. When I found out about Murray & Kara’s van (which you'll see featured later in the shoot), I instantly knew I had to use it in the shoot.

I’d never seen a van used in a shoot before, and it just added such a good flare to the whole bohemian, nature based theme I was going for.

After getting all of the vendors on board and the date nailed down, I kicked back and waited for the day to arrive. I was confident and content that everything was coming along smoothly.

However, I celebrated a bit too early.

In the last 24 hours leading up the shoot, I had to change the dress, the location, and find last minute wardrobe adjustments for Kara.

Just as I was beginning to accept that the shoot wasn’t going to live up to what I wanted it to be, something special happened. 

On the day of the styled shoot, everything ran smoother than I could have hoped for. The weather was great, a little bit overcast for some great even shadows and just enough light to leave us with a few hours of incredible conditions.

My amazing wife came with us and kept busy by holding clothing, props, cameras, shoes and a multitude of other items while Ash (Film & Foliage) and I arranged shots and made some magic happen.

The end scene to the day was completely left to Ash who did the most incredible job putting together the flowers that went through the van. It was unlike anything I’ve ever seen!

The couple's intimate scenes in the van wrapped up the shoot in a way that was so perfect and personal. I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

It was all made possible to the amazing team that joined me on the adventure and made the day what it was. A big thanks to all those involved for being a part of what has been the best photographic experience of my life so far!

Its the middle of September in the south of Iceland. 

I stare up, amazed at what I see in the sky.

A solar storm is at bay dancing across the sky, a phenomenon more commonly known as the Northern Lights. My husband and I couldn’t believe we were lucky enough to see this while on our seven day trip to what seemed like another planet.

It was the most remarkable thing we had ever seen. Exclamations of excitement were in abundance as we pulled up to our lookout destination after a long hunt for cloudless night sky. Now we could go home satisfied. Now our trip was complete.

We had spent the days prior exploring the varied landscape of Iceland in the light of day. We drove past countless waterfalls, bubbling hot springs, lush green valleys, and moss fields so thick you could fall back into them without getting hurt.

The wildlife consisting of un-sheered sheep and beautiful Icelandic horses. Some days the wind was so strong it nearly knocked us off our feet, twisting my hair in my face and drenching us with sprays of water from the Seljalandsfoss.

It seems impossible to describe all that we saw and did on our trip to Iceland, which is why I am so glad to have these photos do the job for me.

Photographing the landscapes of the “world of waterfalls” was a dream come true.

From mountains painted in green, red, and black to the whites and blues of the glacier lagoons, perhaps my favorite view from the trip was the obsidian sand meeting with the icy waves of the cerulean ocean.
