Film Noir Engagement session


Film Noir Engagement session

Mystery. Intrigue. Killer costumes.  Amazing hair and makeup.  Kathleen and Mark sent us the best email ever – “Mark and I were thinking maybe we could do a Film Noir engagement session. That would require costumes and hair, but we think it might be neat”.  Might be neat? Yeah, that was an understatement.  What an awesome idea for an engagement shoot and we were stoked to have a creative project to work on.

We had never photographed a styled engagement session quite like this, let along photographed in the Film Noir style. This one was certainly a challenge for us. But, once we started doing a little bit of research, it was pretty clear that the final result was going to be awesome. We enlisted the help of Nicole Richy, who took the lead on hair and makeup for the shoot.  Kaela Caron came down to help with costumes and picked out a beautiful red dress and heels for Kathleen to wear. These two looked like they were right out of a movie, it was glorious.  What was even better is that Mark showed up to the engagement session super excited to have his photo taken. So why not plan something that gets the groom excited?  This was so awesome.

Kathleen and Mark were married at the Calgary Zoo in early 2014.  Check out their full Calgary Zoo Wedding blog post, it’s a gooder!
