We’ve put together this engagement and wedding location guide as helpful way to find the perfect spot for your upcoming wedding or engagement shoot.
As a wedding photographer, I’m constantly wandering the city looking for locations that would give us the perfect backdrop for your wedding or engagement photos
So here comes our list to the most Epic spots for Engagement and Wedding Photos in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area
10- Webster Falls, Hamilton Ontario
Now this is a bit of a drive from Toronto, but if you are interested in an adventure that’s within an hour drive from the heart of Toronto, you end up at Webster falls and the Hamilton Gorge.
This area provides one of the best back drops for Engagement or Weddings photos, now this is more for the engagement shoot, as I always tell my couples for their engagement shoot to do what they won’t be able to do in their Wedding Dress and Tux.
To get the best out of this location you really have to visit in the fall, the fall colours provide one of the most epic shots if you time them in golden hour.
9- Mimico Cruising Club, Toronto Ontario
In the downtown Toronto, you will find the Mimico Cruising Club.
This location will give you a great picture with Yachts and Boats as Lake Ontario sets the scene, throw in there some greenery and florals and you have an Epic spot right in the heart of Toronto for your Wedding or Engagement shoot.
8- Spencer Smith Park, Burlington Ontario
Its spring time and you want to have the newly blossomed Cherry blossoms as part of your Engagement or Wedding shoot, but don’t want to put up with rush of other places like High Park in Toronto.
Let me introduce you to Spencer Smith Park in Burlington, the drive out of the city is well worth it to be able to get some privacy away from the hundreds of people at High Park in Toronto.
With cherry blossoms, greenery, and a small beach this little park right on the Burlington waterfront will give you quite a different set of photos that you would be able to look back on.
This has to be one of my favourite spots to shoot in so far.
7- Milton City Hall, Milton Ontario
Summer Engagement and Wedding shoots in this location is well worth the trek to Milton if you are coming from the east end of Toronto.
This small area has everything you will need for your shoot structures, greenery, the cozy feeling of this spot is fantastic and it really brings out the some of the most intimate pictures.
6- Main Street Unionville, Markham Ontario
Now that we moved to the East side of the Greater Toronto Area, my next pick has to go to Main Street Unionville.
Main Street Unionville with all its rustic feels, Pavilion, old school fire station, all resturants and things to do in the area, I always tell my couples to make a date out of this location, as after the shoot you can do anything in the area.
The greenery, train station, vintage houses make for some of the best Wedding and Engagement pictures.
5- The Guild-Inn Estates, Toronto Ontario
The Guild absolutely is one of the best spots in all of Toronto for Engagement and Weddings photos, from ancient pillars, greenery, architecture. This sets the perfect background for any Engagement and Wedding photoshoot.
This is one of the most highly recommended spots by us, but the reason its not higher on our list is because if you go on any weekend in the summer the crowds are usually huge, that’s why we recommend to go during the week if you really want to enjoy and get the best out of this location.
4- Niagara-on-the-Lake Wineries
For an intimate session, grab your fiancé head down to wine country Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Check out places like Konzelmann Estate Winery it’s one of our favorite wineries to shoot at south of Toronto.
Konzelmann Winery is cozy, romantic, rustic, and fantastic for engagement pictures.
3- Polson Pier/ Cherry Beach, Downtown Toronto
Located at the heart of downtown Toronto, and you get one of the best unobstructed views of the Toronto Skyline, and within a 5 minute drive you get one of the nicest Toronto beaches with a view of the Toronto Islands.
2- The Doctor’s House, Klienburg Ontario
There isn’t anything new we can say about how much we love shooting and working at the Doctor’s House, Between the Chapel, Banquet halls, or the fantastically maintained greenery the Doctor’s House is an amazing Venue.
1- Mint Room, Toronto Ontario
