What The ??? Is An Adventure Session?

So Much More Than Just A Photoshoot

 

I use the term “Adventure Session” to describe couple shoots that don’t take place on a wedding day. Adventure sessions can be used for occasions such as:
* Proposals
* Engagement Shoots
* Pre-wedding photoshoots
* Honeymoon shoots
* After-wedding sessions
* Vow renewals

About Cat

Cat Ekkelboom-White

 

I’m Cat, the woman behind Wild Connections Photography.

Born in the UK, my love of the mountains led me to Austria where I now live with my husband Menno. I’m a former ski & snowboard instructor and general mountain addict, spending most of my free time out in the mountains with her husband in search of the wildest and most beautiful locations. On rainy days you’ll find me in the climbing gym or at home with Menno and our 2 naughty house rabbits Fozzy & Bella.

I’m a multi-award-winning photographer and an industry leader in the European adventure wedding scene. I’m an adventure wedding & elopement specialist, and in 2019 I was named a Fujifilm X-Photographer for my unique approach to wedding photography. My work has won recognition from top industry blogs Junebug Weddings, and has been featured in publications such as HuffPost, The Knot, Magnolia Rouge, Mountainside Bride & Looks Like Film.

I’m also the editor of the European adventure wedding blog We Are The Wanderers and founder of the Adventure Wedding Academy for wedding photographers.

Let's Do This!

I’m so excited that you want to share your adventure with me. It’s going to be epic!

Reserve Your Date

To reserve your date, you’ll get a contract to sign and an invoice for a 50% prepayment. If you don’t know how many hours you’ll need, I recommend booking the base package & upgrading to more hours at a later date once we have a clearer vision of the flow of your day.

Need Help Finding A Location & Other Vendors?

I’ll create a bespoke location list for you based on your vision for your dream day. I’m also happy to send you recommendations for other vendors such as flowers, videographers, hair and makeup, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you based?

I’m based in Innsbruck, Austria but I’m happy to travel wherever you need me to. Travel has been a huge part of my life and even now I have a fixed home in Austria, I still love to travel as much as I can. I have three international airports within two hours from home, so it’s pretty easy for me to get anywhere in the world. I regularly travel all around Europe for weddings & elopements.

What is your shooting style?

I try to shoot everything as true to life as possible and create a gallery that is a true representation of your day. If it’s bright and sunny on your wedding day, your pictures will be brighter than if it was dark and cloudy. I work primarily in a documentary style, which means I try to let as much unfold in front of me as possible. In other words, I’m there to capture your day as it happens. I’ll only give you some direction if it means placing you in better light or if something doesn’t quite work for the camera. My priority on a wedding day will always be to give you space to have the experience and the adventure that you want to have without you feeling like you have to stop to pose for photos every few minutes.

How Many Images Will We Get?

Great question! And the answer is: it depends. The number of images in your final gallery depends a lot on the timings of your day as well as the number of people attending. I don’t have a set number of images I deliver. But if you really need me to give you a number, you can expect an average of around 50 images per hour of coverage.

When do we get to see our pictures?

You’ll get a small preview of your pictures around 1 week after your wedding day and the full edited gallery delivered to your inbox no later 60 days from your wedding date.

You have said that our photos will be edited? What does this mean?

All photos that are selected for the final gallery with be post-processed to show them in their best form. This includes colour correction, optimising brightness and contrast in line with the style of images you see in my portfolio. I do not use photoshop to alter images. I believe that there is nothing more beautiful than two people in love. I am there to capture your day as it happens, in an honest and real way. Of course, if you woke up with a red spot on your chin, I will take that out for you. I don’t give out unedited images. So much of the magic that makes up an image happens in the digital equivalent of the darkroom (known as Lightroom) and it’s also how I will create images that match my signature style. It’s boring but I have a legal obligation to deliver a final gallery that is representative of the work you see on my website (and unedited images look rubbish!).

What is an online gallery?

An online gallery is where all of your edited photos are uploaded once they are finished. This gallery is online for 1 year after your wedding date. You can share the gallery link with all of your family and friends, download and share your favourite images to social media. You can also order prints and beautiful handmade albums from a professional lab straight from the gallery.
