Location: Strange World Tattoo


We're always up to a challenge and love to experiment with new locations during our photo sessions. So when Danielle and Nathan approached us with the idea to have engagement session done in their favourite tattoo salon here in Calgary - Strange World Tattoo, we were game on. We loved the whole experience and can’t say “thank you” enough to the guys from the salon, who were super cooperative and let us use their place for the session. There are tons of super cool drawings on the walls that we used as a background for our pictures. We brought our lights to the shoot and had a fun time experimenting with new set ups, and photographing guys as we were moving around the place. One of the walls in that place had different skateboards attached to the wall - what a neat idea, so we used it as background for some of our pictures. One of our favorites from the session is actually where the guys stand next to the skateboards and look at each other and we see their hands placed on the chair they were tattooed in before - a differently done ring shot for sure!


The second part of the session was outside, so we had a mix of pictures for our couple. The outside place was at one of the hills at Bowmont Park here in Calgary. We loved the open space of the park at the top of the hill that has breathtaking views of rocky mountains and nearby local attraction - Canada Olympic Park (COP).


The whole session was fun and we enjoyed working with Danielle and Nathan. Check out pictures from their engagement session below.
