If you're new here, welcome! I’m Krystal – boss babe and lead photographer at Fly Free Photography. We specialize in documenting weddings and elopements in Calgary and the area, including the beautiful rocky mountains. I personally help all our couples create a customized timeline for their day to ensure we have time to capture all the special moments.

Bridal Session Ideas
Bridal Sessions will forever have a special place in my heart, they allow us to have stress free time to just create and capture moments that would most likely not happen during your wedding day. If you have never heard of a bridal session or are not sure what they entail, let me share a bit with you. I also recently did one in the Vancouver cherry blossoms, it was truly magical.
Your bridal session can, but doesn’t need to happen before your wedding, it can happen after as well, like my bride Jayd. She got married in April and we did her bridal session in May when the Cherry Blossoms were in full bloom. These sessions give you the opportunity to try out different styles if you want in terms of hair, or if you have a 2nd dress you would like photos in or want to be a little more adventurous with your dress afterward – honestly, the possibilities are endless, I could dream up so many different ideas for you depending on who you are and what you like.
52 North Venue
This session allowed us to do multiple different looks with vendors that highlighted other locations at the 52 North Venue and really showed what the space could be transformed into. Rhonda of Creative Edge Flowers created a show-stopping display of spring branches and blooms that envelop a vintage bone-white sofa from Orange Trunk Vintage Rentals. I’ll let the images speak for themselves, as this entire shoot's beauty is better viewed.
If you would like to check out more about the vendors involved you can see our feature on Confetti Wedding Magazine here you will find more details as well as images from this stunning shoot.
If you have any interest in booking your own Bridal shoot (whether I was your wedding photographer or not) you are still more than welcome to book a stunning session with me and my team, please feel free to reach out here and let’s dream up a stunning shoot to celebrate this new chapter in your life of being a wife!
