So with that in mind, finding a good place for your engagement session should be a no-brainer. With so many amazing venues in Orlando, it can be hard to narrow down your options. So we’ve made a list of our favorite Orlando Engagement Photography Locations to shoot at.

Park/Nature Centers

For our brides who love the ethereal look of luscious greenery, Cypress Grove Park is a great option. This park is always green, and showcases a beautiful entrance. As you walk through the pathways, you’ll find trees and quaint wooden fences lining the park.

Lake Eola Park | Downtown Orlando, Florida

Lake Eola Park is located in the heart of Downtown Orlando. Complete with a beautiful font and a sidewalk that circles the lake .9 miles in length perfect for photos. This location looks amazing in the fall with the changing leaves, making the perfect backdrop for your engagement session. This location is perfect for a boho or modern bride that’s looking for natural photos.

Silver Spring State Park | Ocala, Florida

Silver Spring is one of the most beautiful treasured landscapes in Florida for engagement photos if you are looking for something unique. The best thing about this place is the springs’ natural beauty and vibrant clarity. We love this place!!! Perfect for Summer-Fall Sessions.

Leu Gardens |Orlando, Florida

Leu Gardens is a botanical oasis minutes from Downtown Orlando. This is an amazing place to shoot for our brides that are looking for a garden style engagement session. This location offers a huge property of different garden styles that we can photograph with you. This location is great for our brides who are looking to combine a romantic garden session with a little bit of added drama and architecture. Large trees offer a dramatic look to your portraits, while beds of flowers allow us to shoot romantic photos with our couple.

Urban/City Locations

Church Street |Downtown Orlando

Church Street is a dream for our couples that are looking for a modern, sleek vibe for their engagement session. With amazing architecture Church Street allows our clients to pop off the background with bright clothing or go for a neutral aesthetic that will match their modern home when they print their photos for the wall.

Downtown Orlando is the heart and soul of Central Florida. From a bustling center of commerce with a diverse set of industries, to its fine restaurants, first-rate hotels, fantastic shopping and more, Downtown Orlando is dynamic and alive with business and entertainment. Definitely perfect for gorgeous photos!

Rollings College | Winter Park

Rollings is a great location for our clients who are looking for amazing architecture that also feels warm and romantic. This location offers many places to shoot within. When you arrive, you’ll find rounded archways that take you to an interior courtyard and garden. Inside, the corridors offer an amazing backdrop for photos, and vintage lamps adorning wooden ceilings will add some romance to your photos.

Disney’s BoardWalk | Walt Disney Word Resort

Evoking turn-of-the-century boardwalks in such coastal cities as Coney Island and Atlantic City, Disney’s BoardWalk is a short stroll to Epcot and a breezy boat ride to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This location is great for a couple that likes the look of light colors and dreamy daylight mixed with vintage architecture.

Mount Dora, FL

Mount Dora is one-hundred plus year old historic village in the heart of Central Florida on the shores of beautiful Lake Dora in the Harris Chain of Lakes. An incredible place for romantic and candid pictures.

St. Augustine Beach | St. Augustine

St Augustine Beach is our top pick for amazing beach photos. The exposed pier create a unique and incredible architecture for photos. This location looks best at sunset when the tide is low.

Cocoa Beach Pier | Cocoa Beach, Florida

Cocoa Beach Pier is a great location to capture lifestyle photos. This location takes advantage of the bright colors on top of the boardwalk, as well as the sea-washed posts underneath that create a traditional beach look for your engagement photos. During the evening, we can capture some incredible fun silhouettes.

Anna Maria Island | Sarasota, Florida

This beach is not in Orlando, but awaits a mere 20 minutes from Bradenton. The beach has absolutely gorgeous scenery. When photographing at low tide you are able to take advantage of some very amazing scenery. A seven-mile strip of beautiful white-sand beaches line the barrier island of Anna Maria Island between the turquoise Gulf of Mexico and peninsular Florida.

Victorian Wedding at Orchid Garden | Austin and Nikole

June 17, 2019 / Photography

We were thrilled to be part of the beautiful Orchid Garden Victorian Wedding of Nikole and Austin. It wasn’t just because Orchid Garden at Church Street is one of our favorite Orlando Wedding Venues either, this wedding was simply so much fun. 

They got married in front of approximately 156 of their closest family and friends. The day was near perfect at this amazing venue.

When they chose the beautiful location they envisioned a Victorian and beautiful event, but, they got so much more. 

Nikole was a stunning sight in her gown from Lilys Bridal as she walked down the aisle to her happily ever after, Austin. She had her hair done by Jessica Walls  and her makeup perfectly polished by Makeoversation. They did a fabulous job because her bridal portraits were beyond beautiful. 

We loved capturing all the details of the wedding they planned and coordinated with the sweet Brianna from Nicole Squared Events, everything from the beautiful wood bouquet by Pine and Petal Weddings to the gorgeous cake, perfectly reflected the couple’s style. 

The vibe of the day was so fun as DJ sebas helped the bride and groom, and guests alike, to dance the night away.
