As Ottawa wedding photographers we’ve shot at a lot of places over the years and the ones I’m going to share with you are some of the best in the city. I’ll show you some awesome engagement shoot locations and of course the best places to go for your wedding.
So here they are – ‘THE TOP 10 WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AND FILM LOCATIONS IN OTTAWA.’
#10. Strathcona Park – This park lies on the west bank of the Rideau River close to Sandy Hill. It has a beautiful fountain where we can go to take some group photos before heading down to the river.
#9. The Garden of the Provinces and Territories – This is a small park on Wellington street. It’s close to Mill Street Brew Pub and Victoria Island. The reason this is a good location for your wedding photography and videography in Ottawa is because it gives us three great locations to shoot, all in the same area.
#8. Museum of Nature – This is an older building with an upgraded modern look. On the outside we’ll be able to take some nice photos and videos by a few entrances. On the inside we have the queens lantern, butterfly staircases and modern architecture to take some elegant photos.
#7. Mooney’s Bay – This is a great location for an engagement shoot because we can photograph you in the water or by some of the nice secluded areas nearby.
#6. Dow’s Lake – This is the perfect location for a shoot during the Tulip festival that takes place every year in May.
#5. Amusement Parks – Amusement parks give us the rides, lights and colors for some really fun action shots.
#4. Canadian Museum of History – The museum lies just across the river in Gatineau. It has modern architecture and a very nice garden with a little stream flowing down, providing us really nice images.
#3. Ornamental Gardens & Experimental Farm– Here we have open fields and beautiful gardens and as Ottawa wedding photographers we always get amazing shots at every shoot.
#2. Arboretum – I love this place. It has trees from all over the world and the shots we can get here are simply gorgeous.
#1. Downtown Ottawa – The number one location for wedding photography and videography shoots is simply downtown Ottawa. We have the National Art Gallery, Chateau Laurier, Major Hill’s Park, Rideau Canal Locks, Sparks Street, Nepean Point and many more. Downtown has the most versatility in one nearby location.
I hope you got some ideas for your own wedding and I’m sure it’ll be one of the greatest days of your life.
