The Bartholet’s Engagement Session at Calgary’s Prince’s Island Park
A Pleasant Post Wedding Session
The Engagement at the Fairmont Palliser and Prince’s Island Park
The day after Sam and Alan’s wedding we met in the lobby of the beautiful and historic Fairmont Palliser in downtown Calgary. Sam’s parents were visiting Calgary from Iran for the wedding, so we took advantage of this gathering, and incorporated a family photo shoot into their engagement session. The incredible lobby gave us plenty of amazing locations for the family photographs, complete with marble pillars and a dazzling chandelier.
The Rimrock Restaurant a Genuine 1920s Experience
After the family photos, we proceeded inside The Rimrock Restaurant at the Fairmont Palliser to take advantage of their beautiful heritage fireplace. This fireplace provided a gorgeous backdrop for a few classically posed photos of the newlyweds. With help from the incredibly accommodating staff, we were able to take some great shots of Sam and Alan right inside the restaurant.
An Afternoon Walk in Prince’s Island Park
Next, we left the lovely Fairmont Palliser and drove down to Prince’s Island Park. We parked across the river, and entered the park via the Bow River Pathway. Once inside the heart of the park, we found plenty of wonderful locations to photograph Sam and Alan, including a beautiful open green space over by the River Café. We utilized this outdoor space to shoot a few intimate photos of the couple. The weather was a little bit cold, but we all braved the chill and still managed to get some incredible shots. We used the numerous pathways, benches, and bridges within the park for our shoot. We finished off the shoot on the Bow River Pathway Bridge that spans the Bow River. These photographs on the bridge with downtown Calgary in the background really capped off a pleasant engagement session.

We are so fortunate to have had the opportunity to photograph Sam & Alan’s engagement photos and we are really looking forward to joining them on their wedding day.
