Ottawa & Gatineau Photography Locations
Check out some of the top photography spots in Ottawa & beyond!
If you want to know ONE thing about me, it's that nature is my jam. I love beautiful scenery - fields, forests, beaches, it’s all photogenic and full of beauty. So of course, my recommendation is always to choose a beautiful outdoor location, BUT I don’t want you to think you can’t get good photos if your backdrop isn’t so scenic. I could do an entire photo session in a parking garage and the photos would still be amazing.
The most important thing is that you feel comfortable. So if the outdoors isn’t your jam or if you don’t want to drive too far, that’s okay! Let’s choose a place that’s special to the two of you - maybe it’s your home or the café where you had your first date; whatever location you choose, just make sure it reflects you!
