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!!!

A Whimsical Wisconsin Wedding

  • Ryan + Paige

I have said it it so many times, we love being a part of friend and family weddings! Some photographers don’t like the pressure and responsibility that comes with shooting a family member’s wedding but I have to say that I wouldn’t want it any other way. Michael and I absolutely loved being a part of Paige and Ryan’s big day! The two of us and my dad made the journey to Wisconsin early on Friday morning and before I knew it, we were at rehearsal dinner with family that we hadn’t seen in over two years!! The last time we visited family at the lake, it was for Paige’s brother’s wedding two years prior. I only wish there were more cousins left in this family so that our pilgrimage to the lake could continue!! We love it up there. It was a perfect 75 degrees and 0% humidity! VERY different from the Florida weather we experienced two weeks ago!

A Tropical Destination Wedding in St. John, Virgin Islands | Caneel Bay

  • Clint + Cary

I’m sure you’re thinking to yourself, “Didn’t Katelyn JUST blog about being a consistent blogger and she hasn’t blogged today?!”.  Yes, I’m a little behind today. Michael and I got home at 3:30am and my schedule is still a little thrown off. However, the good news is that even though this is a late blog post, it’s a GREAT one!! I can’t wait to share this beautiful destination wedding! Michael and I took two days and vacationed in St. Thomas and then spent two days in St. John preparing and then shooting a destination wedding at Caneel Bay Resort.  It was beautiful! I love destination weddings for obvious reasons…the beaches, the experience, the weather…. but I also love them because I have
