 Engagement Photo Locations - Queen Elizabeth Park

1. Queen Elizabeth Park

I am lucky to have done several photoshoots in Queen Elizabeth Park as I live very close to the park. The park is close to 52 hectares and has many gardens, the arboretum and is home to the Bloedel Conservatory. 


2. Granville Island

This is a popular spot all year round and is littered with hidden gems that provide a beautiful backdrop for engagement photography regardless of Vancouver’s fickle weather. Granville Island is home to over 300 independent shops as well as renowned Emily Carr Creative University.  One of the advantages to having your engagement photos taken at Granville Island is the vast amount of colourful backgrounds and the rich diversity of the location. You could easily spend an hour here and leave with beautiful photos that look to have been shot at several different locations all without ever leaving Granville Island. 


3. Cypress Mountain

Vancouver is known for its rain but you don’t have to look far to find snow to capture breathtaking engagement photos. Cypress mountain is located just north of Vancouver and before Horseshoe Bay which makes it a prime location in the Vancouver area. A valentine’s day engagement shoot in the snowy white mountains renders beautiful results that will last a lifetime.

The botanical gardens located in UBC are a popular engagement and wedding photography location. The gardens are separated into different areas and can host a wedding for couples with the capacity of 50-100 people. The gardens are beautiful and have a labyrinth of trails with multiple photo opportunities. The garden also offers three hours of complementary parking, which is win for both couples and photographer.
