COMPLETE BUS TOUR VIDEO COMING VERY SOON!

 

 


BUS CONVERSION: EPISODE 8

So doing a video for our Vlog every week is just not practical or possible right now. We are so busy with shooting weddings, editing, maintaining and growing the business, building the bus, doing family stuff and trying to sell our house, and planning our travel route, etc. Phew.

We have decided to not put that pressure on ourselves and so we will try and put together a video at least every couple weeks.

Please watch below and then leave us a Comment, SUBSCRIBE and SHARE with friends and family. Thanks so much!

And of course, we are booking into 2018 so read our CONTACT page and see if you sound like our couple.

Be Bold and Seek Adventure,

Liz & Mike


BUS CONVERSION: EPISODE 7


BUS CONVERSION: EPISODE 6

Skunk spray and moldy cheese. Sounds like family time (I think....).

Lots of excitement about light switches and vinyl flooring. Must be a school bus conversion!

We had a very busy week last week. I was dogsitting for some friends and had editing and other work to do, Bryce was busy playing with friends and Mike spent his Spring Break surfing...

Surfing the internet to find out how to hook up the electric and the breaker box.

We also spent time together just hanging out as a family, something we haven't really done lately because we have let the bus consume us.

We went to the arcade and ate candy and junk with some friends and then did the Bean Boozled jelly bean challenge and laughed and spit and had fun.

Trying to balance everything has been a real challenge so we promised that we would try to not just focus on work and the bus.

WHAT WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT AND WHAT WILL BE CHALLENGING

This week we worked on installing the insulation and plywood for the floors of the bus. And by "We" I mean Mike. He also was able to finish up placing the insulation into the walls and we talked about paint colors for the exterior. 

No more "school bus yellow"!

We also talked about what we currently were most excited about and what we currently think will be most challenging. 

I also got a surprise gift from Mike and cannot wait to put it in use. Or maybe I can wait...

We would love your support so please SUBSCRIBE and SHARE and head over to Instagram and FOLLOW us.

And we are booking into 2018 and will be looking for couples who are all over North America so if you are engaged or know a couple that will be looking for photographers (who live in a school bus), go to our CONTACT page.

THE BUS, YOUTUBE AND WHAT'S UP NEXT

So we mentioned that we were selling everything, including our house, and we bought a school bus and are in the process of converting it into our home.

"Live life with intention and fearless pursuit"

We have launched our Youtube channel and will now post one video each week giving you updates on the bus, where we plan on going and all of the weekly challenges and decisions we are faced with when trying to prepare to live on the road full time.

We have lists. Lots of lists. And Mike has been busting his butt trying to research and figure out how to design the bus the best way that he thinks will work for us. We obviously want comfort and we want it to look good but we also need function, safety and efficiency.

I have been focusing on Finny Hill and booking weddings and taking care of our awesome couples that have already booked with us. I also need to go through all of our stuff to determine what is garage sale worthy, what can be donated and what needs to be sold for more than a garage sale rate. Not the most fun thing I want to do but it has to be done. We are not bringing a ton of clothes, etc. so we need to weed through everything and see what we have.

Saturday I stopped by the bus and Mike and his buddy had built the framing for the floor insulation and plywood. I had this flood of emotions of excitement and holy shi% this is really happening. It is really happening. I'm sure there will be a few more of those throughout all of this.

The best thing that happened regarding the bus was when I took Riley (our dog) with me last week. I thought for sure she was going to hate the bus and there was no way we were getting her on this thing. BUT, She jumped right up the stairs, tail wagging like crazy. It was awesome. Made my mind rest a little knowing that she was okay with it. (Yes she is my baby and is seriously spoiled)...

I am really proud of how Mike has overcome his main nemosis, FEAR, and just has been working so hard and dedicated as much time as he can on the bus and focusing on making intentional decisions. He will go into the fear issue in a future video.

I am excited to finally plan out where we are going. It will depend on what we have booked and where. The seasons will have a big influence on where we go too. Alaska is on the top of our list so we have to make sure we get there when it isn't shut down because of the freezing temps. I think I will be able to start planning around May.

And at the top of our TO DO list is selling our house. If you want more info just email us and we can give you all the details.

Now this is where you factor into all of this...we need you to do the three S's:

-SUBSCRIBE: To our Youtube Channel HERE: Be Bold Seek Adventure™

-SHARE: Tell your friends and family about our story and tell them to subscribe and check out our site

-SEND Love: When you go to our Youtube channel, Instagram or Facebook pages, leave comments. We want this to be an interactive experience and need feedback and words of advice and lots of prayers.

So, we are stoked to have created this opportunity for ourselves and cannot wait to share it all with you!

Be Bold and Seek Adventure,

Liz & Mike


 

BE BOLD. SEEK ADVENTURE.™

Finny Hill Photography_Travel Photographers_8036.jpg

Drum roll please...We have decided to pack up our photography gear and our son and dog and hit the road!

Starting this Summer, we will be traveling around North America living with intention, pursuing our passions and truly living our motto,

BE BOLD. SEEK ADVENTURE.™

Living Intentionally. What does this mean to us? We want to live our lives the way we want to, by making decisions and choices based on our desires to be successful and happy, to spend more time together, to have the opportunity to grow our photography business and the desire to experience different cultures, people and places.

We don't want society or culture dictating what our lives should look like. There are too many people who are just getting through the work day and are miserable. Life is too short to not be doing what you love and doing it now.

We love photography. We love traveling and experiencing new things and we love meeting new people. So we have decided to take our home on wheels and spend time doing what we love with the people that we want to be around.

"How can we have a successful wedding photography business and travel full time?"
"What about Bryce and school?"
"What are you living in?
What will this adventure look like?"

There will be a Q&A video that will be available soon to share the answers to a lot of the questions our friends and family have already asked us.

How can you support us?

A few ways....Prayer, Subscribe to our Newsletter, Subscribe to our upcoming Youtube channel, Follow us on Instagram and Facebook and Share with your friends and family. The more exposure we receive from those who want to hear our story and follow our adventure, the better opportunities we will have.

Vulnerability, real and raw interactions, laughs and good times, our personal photography journeys and projects, a growing wedding photography company, the struggles, an alternative way of living, and all out there for the world to check out. We CANNOT wait!

We plan on telling our story on how we made the decision to sell all of our stuff and design a home on wheels (more details when we do the Q&A), and what this journey will look like.

We appreciate all of the support we have received from those we have already told and look forward to all of the new adventures we are about to have!

We are SO EXCITED!

Be Bold and Seek Adventure,

Liz & Mike
