More About Us

Hi! We are two Alberta based wedding photographers & educators, with over a decade of combined photography experience!

Kristy, of Wild Love Photos, is an Edmonton based wedding photographer who is the QUEEN of keeping things light and fun while capturing amazing images. She has just shy of 10 years of experience shooting weddings, and thrives off the hustle and bustle of the industry.

Ang, of BRZ Photography, is a rural Alberta based wedding photographer who loves creating dreamy images and is a business savvy inspiration! She has been in the industry for almost 10 years and cannot imagine doing anything else!



Who is this retreat for?

This retreat is geared towards any photographer that would like to break into or expand their reach in the wedding industry, and gain some kick ass mountain backdrops for their portfolio!

What knowledge is necessary before signing up?

Basic camera knowledge and function is necessary, as we will be touching on this but not in depth.

What kind of gear do I need?

You’ll want to bring your camera (preferably full frame) and any lenses that you own, as well as a laptop if you use one to edit on.

What is included in the price?

The fee includes the workshop education and the styled shoots! The rest of the meals for the weekend, and accommodations are not provided in the cost. The attendees are responsible for booking their own accommodations. Travel to and from Drumheller is not provided (we can help you figure out car pooling though!). We highly recommend you book a room at the Canalta Jurassic Hotel so that we’re all in the same location, but it is not necessary.

We will be staying and teaching at Canalta Jurassic Hotel in Drumheller. We will have the conference room there all to ourselves, and we highly encourage attendees stay at this hotel as well. Feel free to stay anywhere else in Drumheller that you wish to stay at. There are a selection of campgrounds to pick from too!

Mentorship Info:

Are you a photographer looking for more personalized and hands on education? This may be the perfect opportunity for you! Before each mentoring session, you’ll complete an in depth survey which will help me to personalize the mentorship to you. I love teaching others what I’ve learned, so let’s connect and let me help you get to where you want to be!

2 Hour Skype Mentorship Session


The main topics of this Skype session will be decided on by you! By filling out the survey ahead of time it will allow me to prepare for our discussion and brainstorm things that I’ve learned in the past that I think would help you. These topics could range anywhere from business, posing, shooting techniques, marketing, editing, and so on! No topics are off limits. Even though we won’t be together, I can review galleries and your online presence and make some recommendations that I think may help boost your business and take your photos to the next level.

Full Day Mentorship and Shadow at a Shoot


In this private one on one mentorship day, we will be doing the following:


  • Review your portfolio and discuss what you’d like to shoot vs. what you have been shooting
  • Review your posing skills and discuss what you’d like to work on
  • Review of your pricing/info package and discuss any changes to be made
  • Review your website & social media sites and discuss any changes to be made


  • Review your gear and shooting techniques and recommend anything to work on
  • Reviewing your editing, practice any new skills and create a base preset to work off of
  • Discuss and implement an action plan which will cover tangible ways to achieve your photography goals
  • Put together a business marketing strategy to reach your ideal clients

Following the mentorship day, you will tag along at a shoot of mine! You’ll get to see how I work and you can shoot your own images as well! You will be free to use those images in your portfolio as well.
