Spring Engagement Photos Locations

The key to picking the perfect engagement session location in the spring is to consider that spring starts off with not a whole lot of greenery! It’s best to pick a spot with gorgeous architecture or wait until the world blooms a little more! During the springtime, one of our most favourite locations for spring engagement photos is the magnolia trees at Springbank Park. Nailing down the perfect timing when the magnolia trees bloom and how long they last is a bit of a science. However, keep in mind that the magnolia trees bloom for 2-3 weeks around the end of April/beginning of May.


Summer Engagement Photo Locations

  • Port Stanley beach
  • Downtown/Thames River (it’s gorgeous at sunset!)

Here’s one of our all-time favourite summer sessions at Port Stanley!

Fall Engagement Photo Locations

  • Springbank Park (the fall colours peak mid to late October!)
  • The Old Courthouse

Making your engagement session unique means choosing details that reflect the two of you. In addition to choosing the right location, consider adding in elements that reflects the two of you! Have a scooter that you two adore? Are you a lover of all things vintage and have access to a vintage bike? Do you have a fur baby that you can’t imagine not including?

In the end, it’s all about you. Not one of the sessions we shoot ever feels and looks the exact same!
