“Where should we go to get our engagement photos taken in Vancouver?” or “Where are the best places to take engagement photos near me?” are some of the frequently asked questions planning for your engagement photo session.

Here is a list of engagement photo locations in Greater Vancouver, British Columbia, which are some of my favourite. Before deciding, ask yourself if you want something of a city/urban or nature setting. For example if you want something with nature, there are mountains, trees and a body of water as options to narrow down to. The best thing about Vancouver is that we have all of them.

Another question I get asked a lot is what time and what weather condition is best to get photos done at. Great questions by the way! An engagement session gives us the flexibility of photographing throughout the day. Depending on location, I love the soft and warm light during sunrise and sunset. A cool blue light is casted at dawn and dusk, which are just before sunrise and after sunset. You will get the best of both! It creates a really romantic, soft and cinematic look to your photos. An overcast day is really nice for even lighting as well. Fret not, we can always discuss this more before your session.

I will constantly update this post with new locations, images and blog posts through Instagram (Follow along). If you have any suggestions for me to check out, have any questions or wanting to know my thoughts on a location, feel free to contact me!
