One of the best decisions for my business I made this year, was to attend the Austrian Alps Retreat hosted by Cat from Wild Connections Photography this month.
This workshop gave me SO MUCH MORE than I was expecting to gain from it and I don’t even know where to start to explain what I loved most about it.
Cat gave amazing learning sessions on for instance how to organize elopements, how to get your branding on point, how to deal with SEO and other marketing types.
Finally I didn’t just feel overwhelmed by ideas on how you might maybe one day etc. get where you want to get, but actually got ACTIONABLE TIPS on the next steps and strategies required for my business and visions. Cat created an atmosphere where everyone felt save to ask questions and to engage in conversations.

An absolute game changer! Couples sessions were in gorgeous Alpine settings, different landscape every day.
Learning sessions provided insight into building a niche business, creating marketing strategies and understanding your ideal client.
This is workshop is a MUST for anyone who wants to fuse their love for the outdoors in their business.
I am also so grateful for being able to create meaningful connections with other photographers with the same mindset.

I recently had some regular mentoring with Cat and it is honestly the best investment for my business.
Cat holds nothing back, but delivers it in the most sincere way, and totally had my back in wanting to help my business flourish!
I wanted to have long-term mentoring to be help make me accountable. Cat would set tasks and goals after every session, and would make sure it was stuff I wanted to cover too.
I’ve learnt so much about blogging, not just blogging for the sake of blogging, but really targeting SEO, keywords and so much more.
There’s so much we covered and I have come away with a long-term plan and totally kicking it in goal setting.
Thank you so much for being supportive, honest and putting so much time into me x
