The sweet, incredibly talented photographer behind @featherandnorth - Alyssa Hagan!! Alyssa is coming to join us in Canada all the way from California to share her expertise in the areas of boudoir photography, creative outside-the-box shooting skills, editing style, work/life balance and workflow (including how she uses Honeybook to her full advantage). Plus, she will be directing our stunning styled shoots, including a special boudoir/portrait/creativity project we have cooking up for you! She will be hanging out around the campfire with us for 3 nights!! You will LOVE her bohemian, fun-loving and adventurous approach.
Hey Wildly Babes!!!
I am Alyssa, a free-spirited California based wedding, elopement +
boudoir photographer. You can usually find me in a long, flowy dress
with tangles in my unruly, long hair and a new hat that I am probably
obsessed with on my head. I am married to a small-town Veterinarian and
together we have the sweetest 10-year old son ever. Our house is filled
with pets, love and all the Tom Petty + Stevie Nicks jams on record
The ENFP, Campaigner Type part of me loves meeting new people and
traveling to new places and I am BEYOND PUMPED TO BE RETURNING BACK TO WILDLY AGAIN to be a part of another amazing time. I cannot wait to see what Michelle is going to blow us away with again this year and I know
whatever goodness she has planned, will be even better than the last. We
are going to have so much fun and I can’t wait to shoot together, share
my love of boudoir + wedding photography with you and get creative with
shooting outside of our comfort zones. September can’t get here fast
enough and I hope you can join us!
All the love,
creator, Stylist, host + Teacher
I’m Michelle, a full-time wedding photographer currently based out of a little town outside of Edmonton, not far from some of the classic picturesque mountains of Alberta, Canada. I’m a traveling, adventure, elopement photographer with a love for styling shoots. To say I love travel, adventure and styling is an understatement - it is what drives me. I love creating experiences, whether that involves elopements with epic ocean views, adventure sessions on rocky mountain sides, or beautiful collaborations with other creatives. As an artist it’s important for me to stay true to and express my voice as well as finding my tribe to help bring that vision to life! In that search I’ve learned a lot and now I get to share that vision with you all!
A little history on my journey to becoming a photographer - I first became interested in photography as a teenager, playing with film cameras and experimenting with photo shoots (collaborating even then), but it was not until my own experience with my wedding photography that I discovered my love for photographing couples in love and decided to pursue it as a career. Since then, I have been traveling the globe with my husband–from the gentle slopes of the mountains of Banff to the coasts of Croatia—learning the ways of travel, photography, styling and the beautiful combination of all three. Together, and through all my travels, styled shoots and amazing clients I have built this business one photographic adventure at a time.
Drumroll please!! Wildly 2.0 is incredibly excited to announce that the amazingly talented Michaela will be joining the wildly community! Michelle has followed along with her work for a long while now and knew instantly she was perfect fit for the workshop! Her energy is infectious! Michaela will be travelling north to meet us from Arizona where she loves shooting in the desert and mountain landscapes of her home! After many mentorships she’s armed and ready to cover topics such as: client interactions/prep, effective e-mailing, mood boards for shoots, client meet-ups to foster trust, attracting ideal clients and the importance of branding. She will also tie that off by going over her editing and workflow, while somehow explaining to us how she balances her work/life! Are you pumped to learn all the things from this boss babe??
Hi you! I am Michaela Mangum, a wedding and elopement photographer based in Arizona, who also loves to travel and see pretty new places. My passion for what I do runs deep, and is so much more than just showing up to take photographs. Connecting with people on a personal level whether that be my couples, or other creatives is what fuels me. I love adventures, being outdoors, down to earth vibes, and creating genuine relationships. I am an old soul and a hopeless romantic, so getting to pull out people's raw love for each other and capture it sets my soul on fire. When I first started photography I did a little bit of everything, and it didn't take me long to know that capturing humans in love is what I adored most.
I am also a single mother to my two handsome 5 year old twin boys, who are my absolute world and greatest joy. We are the three musketeers and they are my best little buds. You will find us spending our free time in the great outdoors going on as many adventures as we can! The mountains are our happy place. My boys are the entire reason I started photography. It all began with me taking photographs of them when they were little babes, and now here I am! I am so thankful for all of the experiences photography has brought me so far, and can't wait or all that is to come. Now, let's be friends!
