Last year, I had the opportunity to meet a fantastic group of women who also happen to be photographers in Central Alberta, and BC. We met up in Bowden, Alberta, at Janelle Awe Photography‘s studio. I only got to be there one day but it was wonderful connecting with great local photographers, especially since I was just getting back into things since my move from Nova Scotia and a maternity leave. This year we decided to meet again, this time at Kimberley, BC’s own Zoe Ferguson Photography‘s studio for the Kimberley Photographer’s Retreat. I brought my friend/second shooter Mich with me and we stayed at the Solace on the Mountain Bed and Breakfast (which was an excellent stay, clean, and highly recommended by the way). We talked shop, exchanged knowledge and Zoe Ferguson and Janelle Awe set up a fabulous styled engagement shoot. I admit I have never participated in a styled shoot before, so this was a new experience for me. I definitely have some wonderful ideas for a mountain engagement session in Alberta! Also, Victoria of Victoria Blaire Photography filled us in on the latest in SEO and Google Webmasters, since she is an SEO and social media genius. So here are a few of my favourites from the styled shoot, thanks to Mich for helping me out with the off-camera flash. I had better not forget to mention how great it was to meet Kaycee from Kaycee Ann Photography, and see Kelli again from KPollit Photography. Until next year ladies, when we meet up in Las Vegas!
