Calgary Black & White Portrait Studio by dqstudios

For over 15 years, we’ve been photographing weddings around the world but for the first time ever, we are focusing exclusively on shooting black-and-white portraits against a grey backdrop in our Calgary photography studio.

… our goal is to make timeless portraits that reveal character, emotion and relationships in images that draw you in and welcome a longer gaze.

Perhaps it’s because it’s the complete opposite of what we’ve become known for — colourful, photojournalistic, environmental wedding photography — that black and white has wholly captivated us. Without the distraction of colour or space, our goal is to make timeless portraits that reveal character, emotion and relationships in images that draw you in and welcome a longer gaze.

For us, the key to great wedding photography and studio photography is the same: to always focus on a wonderful client experience and earn deeper levels of trust before, during and after the shoot.

Our gift is both relational and technical; having shot weddings around the world for a diverse clientele, we have an uncommon understanding of people … and light. But it’s our desire and ability to “fall in love” with our clients each and every time that allows us to best portray them in perfect light.

After only one year of running our black and white portrait studio, we’ve had the privilege of having our images published, won international portrait competitions, and partnered with wonderful organizations like Suzuki Baby to give back to great organizations like Hope Mission.
