Family Roadtrippin'

Camping for 11 days with a 1 year old.

Does that scare you? It certainly did scare us, and people were legitimately worried about our levels of sanity when we told them we were taking Layla along for my 30th birthday present from Mad out to Salt Lake City to go visit Yellowstone and Zion National Parks. It wasn't a photo trip, which was a nice change in our usual travel agenda. In the end, after many cold and crying nights, strenuous hikes with a bit of extra weight, amazing laughs coming from the back of the van, terrorizing campgrounds, bathing in silty lakes below unreal rock formations, seeing my favorite milky way again, hair-raising drives up the side of a mountain for epic camping spots, and a couple nights of unplanned reprieve in hotels, we came out alive. Alive and smiling, and closer as a family than ever before (even though I’m not sure how that was possible). We did it, and would do it again in a heartbeat.

But probably with a Nanny next time.

Chewie + Ann : Iceland Wedding

When Hannes from Pink Iceland let me know there was a couple interested in having me shoot their wedding, I was immediately stoked. Another wedding in Iceland, pinch me! And as it turns out, Chewie and Ann are seriously amazing and fun people who wanted to have their friends and family from all over experience this special place that means so much to them while they tied the knot. How good?! They got married at a beautiful place in the country called Kjarnholt where they were also staying with some of their guests, we then went on a bus trip to some beautiful spots which included Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area, Efstidalur for some amazing lunch, and finally Þingvellir national park before heading back for their rocking reception at Kjarnholt. It was a pleasure spending the day with them, and a big shout out goes to my 2nd shooter and awesome photographer Drew Noel who made the trip and his photos are mixed in below! Enjoy :)

Tokoriki - Fijian Paradise

Tokoriki Island Resort is truly a magical spot, the vibe of the island and the staff make being in paradise that much better. I headed back for a week to shoot the resort in a new light, with an exciting new brief to highlight different parts of the island. Such a good time, every time!! Here's a few of my favourites below.

Fiji Time

Maddie and I had a holiday in the waiting line for a while (non work related for the first time in years!!). Yes we still brought our cameras... how could you not when visiting such a beautiful country? We went and checked out our spot where we tied the knot a couple short years ago, then headed to the island where we honeymooned straight after. The people of Fiji are what make this country so amazing... but the sights certainly aren't bad either :) 

Iceland : The Extras

Iceland is a photographers paradise. I'm already planning multiple trips back there for extended periods, I can't describe the beauty that lies around every curve. Here's a few photos that should help get the point across! Straight to the top of your bucket list people.
