My Story: European Adventure Wedding Photographer

Story Of You // Wild Connections from Story of Your Day on Vimeo.

I’m Cat

The picture below is of me and Menno and we’re being goofy as usual.

My surname is utterly ridiculous and far too long.

I’m an ex ski-bum seasonaire turned adventure wedding photographer in Austria & across Europe.

Born and raised in Suffolk in the UK, I went to university, got a good job, and followed the path I thought I was supposed to be on, only to find out the life I was living was not making me happy. On a bit of a whim, I applied for a job in Austria as a chalet girl for a winter season, packed my bags and left. Not wanting to return, I decided to become a snowboard and ski instructor and This journey led me around the globe, flying from winter to winter working as a ski instructor. In 2011 I met my husband Menno in Mayrhofen in Austria, and we decided to make a home in the mountains with our two naughty house rabbits Fozzy and Bella.
