Families | Sherwood Park Photographers

Every now and again we get an email or comment saying “Hey, do ya’ll shoot families” Now this is always something photographers chuckle about. As I always am tempted to reply, “Why yes we shoot families… with our cameras!” (Hardy har har) But many of our followers and lovely couples don’t actually know that “YES we do photograph family photo sessions” Every once in a while we venture out with some cute kids, glowing pregnant ladies, or families of any age (adult children are the best for a  really great session) and snap some pictures for you to remember forever.

“Wait, so you do family sessions?!” Yes, yes, yes. Well, actually to be more specific I (Eee) do take care of those family sessions on my own, but I love them. They are such a different type of fun then weddings and I take on a select few every year. It’s not only a great way to stay creative, but its also really personal as I do believe in getting photos done every one to two years for ourselves, so why wouldn’t you come back to your awesome wedding photographer a few years later when you’re starting your family right? We love to capture your life and give you photos you can treasure forever more, to watch your family grow!

“Soooo, your site is all weddings… where’s the family stuff?” Right here! In this post! We’re working on adding a family/portrait portion to our site but for now, we honestly have been catching up on tv seasons and enjoying each others company to finish out the wedding season… so it may come. One day.

So for now, please enjoy some of the lovely photos from a few sessions we had this year that were never seen! And please, if you’re looking for your own Sherwood Park Photography or anywhere in the Edmonton area, please email us! I’d love to capture some memories for you!

Brand New — Eee + Bee Updates

We have some very fun news to share with you all! Last week we launched a spiffy new website and if you want to see it for yourself we think you should head over there right now! www.eeeandbee.com

We have been working all summer and thinking hard about how to make our site more streamlined, clean looking, and easy to use. It can get really frustrating trying to find a Contact Us page or just trying to find whatever it is you are actually looking for. So, we hope we’ve solved that problem on our own site!

Now when you find www.eeeandbee.com you land right on our site, no more having to choose the portfolio over the blog we know you will come to both! There are four easy to find pages at the top depending on what you want to view first (and we really want you to view the Meet Us page, because it’s more then a little fun even if you know us already! Plus it’s our favorite part of the site!) Then we added a fun photo of us that you get to see right away, so if you’ve never met us now at least you know what we look like! You may have noticed this on the blog header too, you’re going to see it all over the place along with our photography mantra is still there too!

We are really excited and happy for the new weddings for next year, fall family sessions this year, and whatever is to come for Eee and Bee. We hope you enjoy our site and as always, let us know what you think of the new improvements we’ve made in the comments! (Because comments make us smile so much!)

Happy Monday!

The Weather — Helpful Tips Series

Our first Helpful tips series starter is going to be all about weather!

Since June in Edmonton (or most of summer really) is always up in the air of what will actually come on your wedding day in regards to rain or shine, we have a little advice for you when it comes to the weather. Don’t go crazy! This is probably the one thing you cannot and never will be able to control. If you’re like me (and slightly insane) you may have checked 10 years back into the farmers almanac to see what the likelihood of rain (maybe even snow) is on your wedding day, but it can still rain on your wedding day. It can also be +35 for your beautiful outdoor ceremony. So what are you to do?

Weather is so unpredictable it’s not worth it to stress out. Even a perfectly planned date can get a little rain in the morning, changing photo locations and outdoor ceremony venues. If you’re worried about that ceremony location, make sure to have a back up. If you’re worried about photos not turning out because of the rain, there are backups for that too! That’s why we’re there for you on the wedding day, we know lots of tips and tricks to get around the rain and still get stunning photos of you!

When planning an outdoor ceremony, be sure to take extra care in backups and times. Direct sunlight in the middle of July takes up about 85% of the day and you won’t look as pretty as you think when that sunbeam is cutting off half your face or your guests blinking so much they can’t see the ceremony. Talk to your vendors about perhaps renting a tent, then rain or shine you are covered. We can help you plan your ceremony time to at tee too!. There are specific times of the day it would be best to have your ceremony outside in the summer and if you’re looking for that beautiful evening glow, well then after 7 or 8pm on a gorgeous summer day would be best (And look great!)

If you are thinking about the likelihood of rain on the day and taking away photo time, we cannot stress enough don’t take away those 1 or 2 hours we have for fun photos of you two and your bridal party. A lot of the fun from the day comes out of that time and gives you a chance to just hang out. Plus, some of the best photos for your walls are from that those few hours. If we think we are going to need some rain backups, we will call you up the week before and let you know. Sometimes booking an indoor location is impossible a week before but other places like city hall and even the Citadel may be able to accommodate us for some morning photos. Rain or shine we can use the space so money isn’t wasted and you end up with some very different and dry photos! If we can’t find an indoor location, well we will dance all week in the hopes rain won’t pour, because a little light drizzle never hurt anyone. Stock up on cute umbrellas for you and your maids so we aren’t ruining the beautiful hair you all have and we know a few covered areas which will be just fine in the rain too!

The more flexible you allow yourself to be, the more you will enjoy your wedding day. And if it doesn’t go just as planned, know that you are still going to be married to the love of your life, rain or shine!
