Black and White Studio Sessions
There’s something special about a great black and white portrait. The simplicity of the black and white portrait belies its power to connect – to make you *feel* something. Removing the distraction of colour, striking black and white portraits invite a deep and lingering gaze, revealing character and expression that will be cherished for generations to come. Sit in the comfort of our Calgary portrait studio as we distill honest expressions that go beyond face value and connect deeply. We love making meaningful portraits of people of all ages – newborn and up.
Calgary Wedding Photographers

Destination Wedding Photography
We love to travel and have the experience and expertise to capture love, moment and light – anywhere in the world. We’ve had the privilege of capturing couples in love in many beautiful wedding venues in Alberta. Some of our favourite Alberta wedding venues include the Fairmont Banff Springs, the Art Gallery of Alberta, Fairmont Lake Louise, Edmonton’s Fairmont Hotel Macdonald, Calgary’s Hotel Arts, le Germain Hotel and Fairmont Palliser.
As well as shooting weddings across Canada and the United States, our beautiful destination wedding photography has brought us to Argentina, India, Greece, Panama, Thailand, Mexico, Dominican Republic, St. Kitts and beyond.
Ethnic Wedding Photography
We are multicultural wedding photographers with experience shooting weddings across many faiths, languages and generations. We love the gathering of loved ones and the many moments of love which transcend language, race and age. We have been blessed to be witness to emotional Persian weddings, beautiful Nigerian celebrations, traditional Sikh weddings, Chinese tea ceremonies, colourful Hindu weddings, and the many traditions of Filipino weddings. From a simple ceremony to elaborate multi-day indian weddings, we always arrive prepared and inspired to capture it all.
Calgary Engagement Photography
Whether you are newly engaged or celebrating your 10th anniversary, we would be honoured to shoot you with the love of your life. There’s something special about couples in love that goes beyond a single wedding day. We often describe our couples photography sessions as more of a “double-date” than a formal photo shoot. Away from the stress and demands of the wedding day, we love collaborating with our couples to creating something which truly speaks of their unique personalities, interests and love.
Calgary Family Photography (Lifestyle shoot)
As parents, we have a special love for family photography. But instead of rigidly posed family photos, we prefer to shoot families in their “natural habitat” doing something they love to do together. Whether it’s cooking, playing, or just chilling in the backyard, we call our relaxed family photography sessions “Lifestyle Shoots”.
