Meet Cat

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.

She is a British Expat who moved to the Austrian Alps to create a life filled with the things she loved the most - mountains, nature and adventuring. Which is why she only shoots limited weddings every year so that she still has plenty of time for the things that really matter - time spent getting lost in wild places.

Who is the workshop for ?

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 are the sleeping arrangements?

You’ll be sleeping in shared single-sex rooms of 2 or 3 people, with an en-suite bathroom. If you would like to upgrade to a double room for single occupancy, this is possible for an additional €100 + VAT, which can be paid with the final payment.

What's Not Included?

Flights to Austria, 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?

For the "Winter Edition" workshop, we will not be skiing or snowboarding. (If you are an experienced skier or snowboarder, then check out the "Austrian Alps Retreat Ski Edition"). Depending on the conditions we may do a snowshoe hike, so you do need to have a reasonable level of fitness to take part in the shoots. Please bear in mind that we are in the Alps and that we may be hiking through snow and over icy, steep or uneven ground and visiting areas up to 2600m above sea level.

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.
