Being engaged is one of the most exciting times in your life! You’re in love and looking forward to getting married – why not capture this moment in time with an engagement shoot? Engagement shoots are a great way to kill two birds with one stone: capture lasting memories and use the images you get for your save the dates, wedding décor, and other wedding related printing you may need.
Once you’ve picked the perfect photographer and the perfect outfit, it’s time to pick the perfect spot. In a big city like Toronto, there are a ton of amazing options for an engagement shoot. Depending on the style of shoot you’re going for, you can find something just right. Let us help with our top picks of the best placed to get engagement photos taken in Toronto!
The Toronto Island is great for a number of reasons – you’ll have the privacy of being out of the city, a gorgeous view of the Toronto skyline, and the option to take pictures surrounded by nature. You’ll have to take a ferry to get there, but enjoy the ride and snap some pictures on the way.
Quickly rising as one of the most popular spots to not just take engagement shoots, but to also get married, the Evergreen Brickworks is a stunning spot for exposed brick, nature, and an industrial feel. Depending on what look you’re going for, you can hit all the marks at this unique spot right in the middle of the city.
Who doesn’t love a background of exposed brick and gorgeous architecture? The Distillery District is a classic spot which has earned its place on this list as one of the romantic places in the city. Whether you’re taking pictures in the summer or in the winter, the Distillery District is a great spot. If you’re doing a winter engagement shoot, take some pictures during the Christmas Market at night with all the lights and hustle and bustle.
Head to Queen St. W and explore the back alleys (hint: there’s an alley called ‘Graffiti Alley’) to use the graffiti art as your background, or step out onto the crosswalk on King St. W for a city-inspired photoshoot. The hustle and bustle of downtown is not something most couples think about when they think of engagement shoot – but how beautiful would the city streets look whizzing in the background?
While it’s a bit of a drive, the Scarborough Bluffs offers a stunning backdrop for engagement photos. With the massive rock walls and secluded beach, you can look like you travelled to an entirely different place with this location.
This breathtaking castle in the middle of the city is the perfect spot for a cozy engagement shoot. Dress up and do a themed shoot, or wear your best formal wear – your imagination can run wild with this timeless location.
In your own home
Yes, in your apartment or home! A rising trend is couples who decide to use their own home as special “inside peek” photoshoot. Think about doing an engagement shoot in your natural life, a place where you spend the bulk of your time as a couple. It’s a great way to truly preserve this special moment in your life.
