Over the past few months, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the very best creatives in Calgary on this styled shoot. Coming up with a vision, and seeing that vision brought to life in these images is beyond satisfying. I am thrilled with the result, and am so happy to share it here today.
The inspiration behind this styled shoot came from our backdrop – the venue sits in one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Calgary, in a former factory turned creative space. We wanted to juxtapose the modern, industrial architecture with an overall romantic feel. It was very important for me to create something that incorporated a masculine look but with a lot of feminine elements to the design. Oftentimes, I find that my brides get carried away with making their wedding look very feminine that they sometimes forget about infusing their partner’s taste as well. This shoot definitely has a colour palette (greenery, dark woods, blacks, pops of marsala) and design elements that gravitate towards the masculine. It’s so important to make sure that a wedding truly reflects those that are being celebrated, and I hope this shoot provides some inspiration as to how that can be achieved.
A huge round of applause to everyone involved:
