Meet Trisha & Courtney
Nine years ago, on an island in Japan, Courtney and Trisha met on their way to a hotel laundry room and quickly became fast friends. While living in different parts of the country for the past few years they’ve spent countless hours on the phone talking life, raising kids, moving, photography, travel and business.
After years of running separate online photography websites and attending other in-person workshops, the two started dreaming of creating a female focused, intimate photography retreat setting of their own. In early 2018, We Wanderers Retreat was born.
Courtney and Trisha have spent most of their adult lives as wanderers. As military spouses and individuals, they’ve traveled the globe in search of beauty and inspiration, camera in hand. But it wasn’t until they started traveling together that they realized just how important this time was to them.
As busy, working women & mothers, the times they got to travel together provided a much needed respite from their daily lives. It was an opportunity to walk slower, take more pictures, laugh together & enjoy the company of someone who truly gets you. In these moments they realized just how fortunate they were to get to wander together & they knew they wanted to create something like this to serve other women. Together they have a combined total of 15 years photography experience and have so much they are ready to share with you.
