I’m so excited about today’s post. As a Calgary wedding photographer, I have had some amazing clients this summer who handed over the reigns and let me really get my creative juices flowing when planning their shoots. For Rob & Dayna, it all started with the idea of a 1960’s summer resort, like the one in Dirty Dancing. From there we thought, “why not take it one step further” and actually have Dayna & Rob put their own spin on some of the infamous scenes? See if you can pick some of them out. The idea was to hint at the past but also create beautiful pictures that represent Dayna & Rob today. The light was soft & buttery, these two had some moooves and I just love the nostalgic feel we captured. Dayna & Rob, I had so much fun with you guys and I hope you will enjoy these photos for years to come.
WhenI see these photographs, scenes from Dirty Dancing come flooding back. “I carried a watermelon”. You may have to watch the movie again now to refresh your memory.

“How you call your loverboy”?
“My sweet baby, you’re the one”!
“Nobody puts Baby in the corner”? I loved Dayna’s fishtail braid.
These images with the water reflecting on Glenmore reservoir may be some of my favourites from the night.
Thanks to the ladies at A Vintage Affair for helping us pick out a summery, white eyelet dress for Dayna.
