Trevor Dayley

Wedding Photographer & Industry Educator

I have six amazing kids, been married to an incredible wife of 17 years and together we all live in sunny Arizona. I’ve been photographing weddings full time for the last 9 years, and have taught numerous workshops throughout the world, spoke at a number of photo conferences and for the last year have been helping MagMod spread the word about their incredibly fast, easy and awesome Speedlite modifiers.

I love sharing with others in the photo industry and helping out wherever I can so we all continue growing together!
