Join Jessica Zimmerman and one of the top wedding photographers in the world in Iceland this October to put together an unforgettable photo shoot in an other-worldly landscape.

Create lasting memories with fellow bloomers, taking in business tips and knowledge from Jessica during the day and relaxing in the world-famous Blue Lagoon in Iceland in your downtime.

You’ll also get the chance to create stunning floral arrangements with Jessica to pull off a once-in-a-lifetime photo shoot alongside an amazing photographer.

 

 

Photo Shoot Inspiration

On our last full retreat day, we will join with top wedding photographer, Lauren Kinsey to produce a wedding photo shoot.

The shoot will have a monochromatic color scheme with touches of silt with a focus on color study and texture. Stark and harsh backgrounds will the set against a softness from the bride and delicacy of ethereal floral designs.

You can see the inspiration for the photo shoot style and colors here.
