Photo studios Calgary – Demo House

Back in September, I had the opportunity to photograph Sasha from A Vintage Affair in a most unique setting, DEMO:  Burdick House.  It was a house on the verge of demolition, filled with sets designed for photographing, by Bart Habermiller & Emily Barnett.  We started our shoot in the “white Garden of Eden”.

Here’s what A Vintage Affair had to say about Sasha’s all-white attire.  This 1940s liquid satin dress has a flattering bow detailed sweetheart neckline & lace enhanced bodice. For winter weddings, we love a fur stole – this one is blonde mink and very luxurious! We have added a modern rhinestone belt and headpiece made exclusively for A Vintage Affair to give today’s bride a truly unique look.

I loved how Emily and Bart created such a beautiful (if not Hitchcock-like) setting using broken poplars following the September snowstorm.  Sasha embodied classic 1940s elegance with a definite Film Noir inspiration.  Her gorgeous skirt suit was paired with a vintage-style veiled hat and a multi-pelt fur stole.
