into the forest I go to lose my mind and find my soul. - john muir

​Are you a photographer looking to connect with other creatives to get  incredible content in really rad locations?! Then you're in the right place! Hosted by Christina of Juniper Woods Photography and Hannah of Hannah Jo Watkins Photography, Wander Wild Retreat focuses on building your portfolio with adventurous styled shoots and community bonding in the most incredible places on the planet.

why wander wild?

Elopements are up and coming- since the pandemic hit more people are choosing to ditch the big day and find somewhere beautiful to share their vows. There's no better way to show your future couples "hey, I do this type of work" than literally going out and doing it, and showing them the magic you are capable of making for them. We believe that full day mock elopements are incredibly important to lock into your portfolio- so that's exactly what we're going to do! Imagine starting off with an intimate breakfast, vow writing, a hike up to a mountain peak to get dressed, vows and exchanging of rings in a ceremony, THE FIRST KISS!!! Then hiking off to a secluded hot spring, and ending the night dancing around a campfire underneath the stars. We are curating styled sessions similar to this timeline through every retreat, keeping the content relevant to the locations we are in.
While this retreat focuses on adventurous elopements, we want to bond and have fun as a group too! Community building is so incredibly important and we want to create a safe and flourishing environment for creatives to connect and grow in their businesses and personal lives together. Every retreat will not only have 3-4 styled shoots, we will do 1-2 group activities relevant to the location, voted on by attendees. Yoga? Kayaking? Hiking? Rock climbing? Helicopter rides? We're excited to see what our attendees decide on!!​
If having a great time with other rad creatives, getting incredible content in beautiful locations is for you- come WANDER WILD with us!!!!
