Head to this trendy rooftop parkade located in downtown Calgary if you're looking for fun & unique urban couples photos!
This couple brought all the style and the heat! I mean, just look at their laidback outfits, their connections and smiles. And that's just what The Platform is all about - a cool, trendy vibe with views! At every corner there's a new city view to check out, including the Calgary Tower, so it's definitely not one of those typical sessions where you're frolicking in the grass. This location is perfect for couples, families & even expecting mamas looking for something different. It calls for edgy, urban style choices too, which is exactly what this couple showed up in. Check out some of my favourite images from this rooftop couples photo session and tell me you don't want to book your next photo session here!

What to wear for photos at a rooftop parkade:
Think urban, edgy, casual & cool for photos at The Platform in Calgary. Because of the cityscape background, I'd keep your outfits simple & clean. Jeans & tees work well here. If you like wearing logos (for instance, on a hat or hoodie), this is definitely the location for it! Classic coats in winter work for a modern feel, whereas puffy coats make the vibe more trendy and casual. Simple silhouettes are best if you would like to wear a dress. Choose minimal patterns and if you do use a pattern, I'd stick with an edgier one like animal print or stripes. Plaid works well too if you consider the colours, so they coordinate with the buildings behind you. If you want to go all out, suits and cocktail dresses (even some with a little sparkle) would look awesome here in my opinion. I would definitely stay away from florals, long flowy dresses, and more "summery, sweet" looks. Save those looks for family photos in the grassy fields.
