The Red Dress Shoot in Iceland

I have to admit, Iceland was never very high on my bucket list, but I’ll never say no to visiting a country I haven’t been to before.  So when my little travel group of female photographers decided to make a trip to the land of fire and ice, I knew I had to make something more of the trip than just photographing landscapes.  I am an avid researcher prior to taking any trip, and while going down the rabbit hole of imagery and blogs about sights to see in Iceland, I came across an idea of photographing portraits of women wearing a red dress.  I immediately sent the idea to my friend Ruby, and we decided we needed to take advantage of this out-of-the-world landscape to capture a unique portrait series while traversing the landscape and diverse terrain.

Here’s Ruby at the famous Selfoss waterfall.

A few days later we passed by a gorgeous moss field along our southern route around the island.  This is where Amanda donned my dress for a few portraits of her own in this gorgeous landscape.

And I could not be more thankful for my dear friend Ruby, for capturing my own portraits in front of Selfoss waterfall.  These are images I will treasure my entire lifetime.

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
