72 Hours in Iceland

  • Weddings, Waterfalls, Worth It.

I’m sure some people are going to think this is craziness. It kind of is. Michael and I photographed a wedding in Roanoke, VA (no where near a big airport) and then flew out to Iceland the very next day. We got into Iceland at midnight and then started photographing Hayden and Geli’s wedding day the very next morning with Buddy and Jill! It was a rush but it was fun! Jill and I had sore feet but when you’re photographing a gorgeous bride with your best friends in the middle of ICELAND, you don’t worry about your feet!!!

Quit Editing, Make Things Happen & a FREE Conference

  • 3 things you NEED to know about!!

GUESS WHAT… I haven’t edited a full wedding in YEARS. That’s why there are so many other things happening in our business! You can’t GROW if you are AT CAPACITY!! So why am I telling you this?! Because my PRIVATE EDITOR has done something absolutely incredible!! She has created a way to 1. EDUCATE and TRAIN other editors AND 2. She is about to launch a DIRECTORY for these editors to get connected with their photographers!! There is SUCH a need for this in our industry! I wish EVERYONE could have a bulk editing experience like us and now they CAN! EDIT SOURCE is launching soon and you don’t want to miss it! Those who look into this and make this leap are going to experience SO much freedom and growth in their business!!! Here is some more info for you! :
