Cat Ekkelboom-White is an industry leader in the world of adventurous wedding photography, known best for her award winning photos of couples climbing mountains and hitting the ski slopes on their wedding day. She is a Fujifilm X-Photographer, and since starting her photography business in 2015, she has created a photography brand that attracts her dream clients from around the world.

The workshop is for photographers and videographers who are interested in learning about photographing adventurous weddings and elopements. Whether you’ve been in business for 6 weeks or 6 years, I believe there’s something for everyone.

What's Not Included?
Transport to/from the retreat, travel insurance, photography equipment, ski equipment, winter clothing.
CAn i use the images for my portfolio?
Yes. Both the couples who model for the shoots will sign a model release so that you can use the images for your portfolio after the retreat. Whilst I can’t enforce this, I do ask that images taken at the retreat are used honestly – i.e. that you are honest they were taken at a workshop and don’t use them to mislead clients that it was a real elopement.
What language is the workshop taught in?
The workshop will be presented in English.
Do I Need To be a skier or snowboarder?
Yes! For the "Ski Edition" workshop, you need to be an experienced skier or snowboarder. You'll need to be confident linking controlled turns on red slopes in all conditions and able to ride all lifts. If you do not own your own equipment, you will have the opportunity to rent it in the resort (not included in the price).
If you are not an experienced skier or snowboarder, then check out the "Austrian Alps Retreat Winter Edition".
what about dietary requirements?
I’m a celiac vegetarian, so I know how hard it can be travelling when you have specific dietary needs. The hotel can cater for allergies, and special diets such as vegetarian, vegan, lactose or gluten-free. Please let me know of any dietary requirements or allergies as soon as possible so I can pass them to the hotel.
what if I cannot attend because of covid?
If you are unable to attend the retreat, the payments you have made against the workshop will be transferred to private 1-on-1 mentoring with me.
