Spending time photographing couples is probably our favorite thing to do… actually no, it IS our favorite thing to do when it comes to photography! Engagement sessions are so chill and relaxing, we hope that everyone has fun because we sure do!
Stephanie and I work together as teachers, for a year now I’ve gushed over her plans, her ring, and wondered when I’d get to meet her man. (We all have around the staff table actually!) We were so honored when they asked us to be part of their day, my excitement has been through the roof. She is such a great colleague and friend, we survived our first year of teaching together and now I get to capture those special moments of her day, fantastic!
Plus, finally we got to meet the elusive Mike. And just as adorable as Stephanie is, Mike is her perfect counterpart! These two are so friendly, warm, and super cute together. They invited us out to the country on the exact anniversary of their engagement and on yet another gorgeous fall day. The light was warm and they were many laughs shared as the sun set over the Lamont countryside.
Stephanie and Mike, we cannot wait for your country wedding come August!

Mountains are our happy place. We try to visit them more than once a year and a little fun fact, Bee and I are hike lovers and recently into rock climbing like you wouldn’t believe! (We have our own rock wall in our gym now!)
So when Kenzie and Sean said “Can we just maybe go to Jasper for our engagement session?” We jumped with excitement and replied “When’s the soonest we can get there!” So one of the first lovely fall weekends in September off we went to the mountains!
“We know this little hike” they said “It’s kind of off the beaten track, but it has the most beautiful waterfalls” Now, after spending a week in Iceland, there’s one thing we know about waterfalls… they are gorgeous! And this one was no exception. So after grabbing coffee and hastily making our way down the surprisingly frosty/snowy roads of the parkway we began our hike, literally off the side of the highway and in the most gorgeous setting we could imagine. Kenzie and Sean are such a fantastic couple to hang out with and we are so happy they shared this gem with us!
Don’t believe how beautiful hiking can be? Take a peek at the photos from that gorgeous September morning,

One year ago I began tinkering with that ever so handy video function on my camera. It started with a 30 day project, which lead into countless hours of footage of our simple life being filmed on a daily basis, and then I decided that I think I can take this to the next level and put it into our wedding photography. Thus, my love of video and the emotion it captures forever, was re-born.
I have ALWAYS loved video, from the dated projects with the my parents old honker of a camera, to simple shorts (which you can find more of on our Vimeo) I remembered why I loved this art form so much. So, now it’s time to share!
If you have the time, below is Sara + Jon’s May the Fourth wedding slideshow. If you are one of our couples, you know you have the joy of being able to watch your photos in our home for the first time, with your closest friends, family, new husband and wife, and us of course all together. We surprised them with a little bit of video in theirs too.
This ignited a fire in me that was unstoppable. And so, Jesse + Cindy were my first full day wedding, with only video to play with.
And I haven’t stopped there. This passion for video immeditatley went to crazy new heights and honestly, it is terrifying!
This past year I took on 2 full day weddings, promo work, and even a commercial (yiikes!) and continual personal work. It has added something to possibly take our business to a whole new level, so who knows where it will go from here.
For now, I hope you stay tuned for the videos I worked on this summer.
Let me know what you think in the comments or by shooting me a message! I have been putting off putting myself out there for so long. But, here it is! It’s all out on the line now, and we are very excited! The possibilities seem endless with what I want to do with this new endevour and I’d love to know what you think.
You can check out my Films by Eee (That’s what I’m calling myself now I guess!) Facebook page or as always if you are looking for your own Edmonton or Sherwood Park Wedding Videography, drop us a line to say hi! We’d love to hear from you!
