Early in a November a group of 10 south east Saskatchewan photographers decided to hold a retreat in Canmore. It was nicknamed the 'ghetto retreat'. Most photographers retreats are full of swag bags and gifts and pretty things to photograph, along with speakers and presentations.
Our retreat certainly had pretty things to take photos of with four shoots that were organized, but we were more relaxed. Chatted with each other about business and life. We had some laughs. Ate some good food. Enjoyed the mountains, which is so very different than our landscape.
The mountains are majestic and gorgeous. The light was pretty and soft. It was enjoyable to shoot in a place that is so different from our rolling prairies. Don't get me wrong I love the prairies. I love photographing in the prairies. I don't have much of a desire to move to the mountains, but having a wanderlust heart and a passport that is always ready to go, I love visiting places within Canada and traveling internationally.
This section of our style shoot was based of a darker, more gothic, non-traditional type of wedding vibe. To see the Blue Mountain version - a more light and airy traditional feel, you can see that here.
