The Budree’s Engagement Session at Calgary’s Peace Bridge
The Budree Engagement Session in Downtown Calgary
Calgary’s Iconic Peace Bridge
We met up with Priya and Kevin downtown at the Peace Bridge on the Eau Claire side of the Bow River. We started the shoot right away, using the Peace Bridge as our backdrop. The pedestrian bridge built in 2012 has quickly become a symbol for the city of Calgary. Its helical steel structure is instantly recognizable and unique. The bridge set a modern tone for the beginning of the session, and made for some incredible photos. There wasn’t a cloud in sight, and the red of the bridge really popped against the blue sky.
Next we worked our way up into the honeycomb tube of the bridge, which was busy with pedestrians enjoying the good weather. Despite all the people, we got some beautiful photos of Priya and Kevin as if there was no one around at all! We walked down the trail into the part for some romantic shots amongst the trees, the red bridge peeking through foliage.
The Newly Revitalized East Village in the Downtown Core
After wrapping up at the Peace Bridge we headed to the downtown East Village. Here, we made our way to Studio Bell, the brand new National Music Center in Calgary. This modern building will function as a multi-purpose center, and will explore Canadian music to its fullest. Inside there will be a museum, an education space, and a concert venue. The exterior of the building is gorgeously geometrical, the reflective squares made a great backdrop.
An Epic City Skyline View Atop the Crescent Heights Viewpoint
We moved on from the modern structural shots and headed over to the epic viewpoint at Crescent Heights. Upon the ridge the dipping sun set the city aglow. We got some incredible shots of Priya and Kevin, the light fading on the Bow River valley.
To finish up we took a couple of shots of the couple holding white boards. These shots are just the beginning as they will be off to Jamaica for their destination wedding!

There is an online gallery of all their images that will be available for the next 30 days.
