Prints For Sale! by Andrea Beça

Prints For Sale Blog.jpg

You asked, and I listened!

I’m thrilled to share that prints are now available for purchase, directly through this very website.

A number of months ago, you all started responding to my social media posts asking about prints. Honestly, it’s something I’ve been thinking about for a long time, but I wasn’t sure if the demand was there. Turns out, it is! I am so grateful - and honoured - that you love my work enough to want to hang it on your walls.

Let’s dig into some details / frequently asked questions!

What type of paper are your photos printed on?

All of my work is printed on fine art quality photo paper for consistent tone, quality colour, and long-lasting work!

Can I order a canvas print of your work? How about something already framed?

You sure can! Get in touch with me and we can create a fully custom order for you to suit your space and aesthetic tastes!

What if a want a print of a photo that’s not listed as “for sale”?

I’ve included some of what I consider to be my “most printable” works - and some of my most requested works - in the print gallery. But the reality is that you can order a print of virtually any photo I’ve shot, as long as it’s not something I shot for a client of mine. If you see something in either my photography portfolio or on my Instagram that you’re keen to have a print of, drop me a line and we can discuss. If it’s available, we’ll do a custom order!

Can I do local pick-up instead of paying for shipping?

Yes! Just select “local pick-up” when you’re checking out. I’ll get in touch and we’ll make a plan.

If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Oh, and since I’m so excited about this new offering, I’ve got a promo code for you! If you order 2 or more prints, use the code PRINTS2018 at checkout for 15% off your order! This promotion is only valid for the next two weeks, so don’t miss out.

Thanks again for all of your love and support. It truly means the world to me!

Capturing Love with Amanda & Stuart by Andrea Beça

On August 19, I had the absolute pleasure of watching my beautiful friend Amanda marry her love, Stuart, on a breathtaking property just outside of Edmonton.

It was such a privilege to be able to capture so many incredible moments throughout the day, and I'll admit I spent a lot of the time crying while I crafted their wedding story into a video. (You'd think after watching it so many times, I'd become desensitized, but I'm here to tell you NOPE! Didn't happen! Still cried every time!) The exchange of sweet glances and silly faces; the tender moments and laughs among family and friends - it all got me right in the heart strings.

It was a busy and amazing day and evening, and I'm so pleased to share their story with you now:

Thank you, Amanda and Stuart, for letting me a part of such an important day in your lives! I'm still swooning over how beautiful it all was!

Screen Shot 2017-10-06 at 1.38.35 PM.png

I'm very excited to announce that I'm opening my 2018 to weddings. I would love to help you capture your day, share your love story with the world, and create memories that will last a lifetime. Because summer is my busiest time of year, I'm limiting the year to just five spots (with a couple extra spots open for winter and autumn weddings!).

Different options are available for different tastes and budgets. Get in touch with me to discuss your wedding today!

Officially Unleashing My Inner Photographer (Finally) by Andrea Beça

A perhaps little known fact about me (though not if you follow me on Instagram): I love photography. When I was a teen, my mom and brother taught me how to use an SLR (yes, in the days of yore, when film was the thing), and as soon as I had saved up enough money, I bought myself a DSLR (some time had passed) in preparation for a huge solo trip to England, Scotland, and Ireland. 

I packed a film camera too - for good measure - and returned from a month of travels with over 35 rolls of film and thousands of digital photos. I haven't stopped taking photos since.

Photography is a huge part of my professional life, too. Beyond taking photos to feature on my own website and social media, I do a ton of portrait and detail photography for my podcast, That's So Maven! Taking photos so regularly for the podcast (and getting asked by many of the guests if I'm up for hire) has really inspired me to take the leap and start offering photography services to my clients

Okay, so truth be told, it's not much of a leap, per se. I know there are a lot of people in my life who are going to read this and say, "finally!!" But it's a new change and I'm very excited for it. 

Want to see more? Visit my new photography portfolio (I'll keep this one updated and fresh just like I do with my video portfolio) and if you're ready to request a quote or book a session, drop me a line so that we can schedule it in.
