Picking the perfect place for your engagement photos isn’t as simple as you’d think. You really need to have a sense of what vibe you want to portray in your photos. Are you looking for something more romantic and whimsical, rustic or urban?

What’s YOUR vibe?

The most important thing I tell all of my clients is that you should pick a location that really reflects your vibe as a couple. There are so many incredible places to photograph in the Niagara region, so how do we find the right one for them? When helping my couples decide what location to do their engagement sessions at, I like to ask these questions.

  • What sort of things are you into? Any hobbies?
  • Are you a laid-back cozy at home kinda couple?
  • Are you an adventurous couple? Outdoorsy?
  • Do you want to be near the water and or maybe the beach?
  • Are you more city vibes, loving urban streets and architecture?
  • Maybe you’re into the rustic romantic vibes?
  • Or are you guys into getting dressed up and looking for something more formal and romantic?

From there we can pick the perfect backdrop for your Niagara engagement session. It also helps that I have a list of my 5 fave engagement session locations that are my go-to and each one encompasses one or more of those above-listed vibes! Maybe this can help you pick the perfect spot for your Niagara Engagement Session!

1. The Secret Beach in NOTL

This one is my very new favourite spot and if you know what beach i’m talking about then you know! Only recently has this secret little slice of heaven in Niagara on the Lake become more exposed to the public due to some semi-viral engagement sessions featuring this spot going around online. To be honest that’s how I was able to find it, by asking friends of friends who knew the couple. It’s a small little beach tucked away and not known to tourists, only the locals. So to protect this amazing spot I will not disclose the address here. I only let my booked couples in on that info!

3. Balls Falls Conservation Area

Are you looking for a Rustic Niagara engagement session with a hint of adventure? Then the Balls Falls Conservation Area is the perfect Niagara engagement session location for you! I’m quite familiar with this location as I have photographed both families and couples here a least 6-10 times a year for the last 15 years!

Why I Love it!

The conservation area has a huge variety of gorgeous places to shoot. I have literally shot here during every season and it NEVER disappoints. Here’s a list of some of the amazing features this area has to offer!

  • A Waterfall
  • Rustic Barns
  • Wild fields
  • Romantic Forest
  • Cute Bridges
  • Big stones
  • River bed
  • Old stone ruins
  • Historic buildings
  • Natural wood fences

And so much more! Sound like your perfect engagement session? Let’s book it! Just a heads up, depending on the day, we may have to pay a permit fee for photography. It’s a new rule since COVID but I have a great relationship with the park so getting a permit shouldn’t be a problem! If we go on a weekday chances are they won’t charge us but we still need permission.
