First of all, I would like to start off by saying welcome to the blog about the top 10 Orlando photoshoot locations! Now let’s start with Lake Louisa, we cannot praise this place enough. Lake Louisa is a State Park that is 4,372-acres located south of Clermont which looks NOTHING like Florida at all. You will think you are in another state while enjoying the views of the gorgeous high grass, Pine and moss trees, and hills in one of the most beautiful woodsy areas Florida has to offer. Side note:: The entrance fee is $5 per vehicle for up to 8 people and $2 per additional person or for pedestrians. Also if you are going for golden hour sunset photos try to be there a little early. Parking can get a little crazy as the parking area fills up quickly! Also in the warmer months bring a lot of bug spray!
This Beautiful Garden is located in Lake Whales. The garden is 250 acres of pure magic! You will feel like you were in the hills of Tuscany Italy with its singing Tower. It offers a beautiful landscape of gardens, trees, hills, and an old mansion that is so picturesque! Plus you may see people with loved ones with blankets and Picnic sets ups enjoying wine, food, and the views. This place is stunning! Make sure to go when flowers are in bloom making for an even more magical experience. Adult admission is $16, Children (ages 5-12) $5 and they close a 6 pm but stop letting people in at 5 pm. This place is a personal favorite of mine and absolutely STUNNING!
Before we get started on this amazing Boardwalk. I have to put out this DISCLAIMER:: Since COVID-19 Disney resorts are not really letting people in easily right now unless you are staying on the property. Pre covid you could visit freely and enjoy the resort properties. Hopefully, this goes back to normal soon. Okay! With that out of the way and you are staying on the grounds and are thinking about having your photos taken, DO IT! Disney’s Boardwalk is a unique place. It has this Great Gatsby feel to it. It also has a lot of different areas around the grounds. From a classic Victorian design with the classic boardwalk, wedding pavilion, a lighthouse, and even has a small beach area. You have so many options for your pictures here it’s an amazing place.
I will start by saying this place has an “Old Town Charm” it is the best way to describe the downtown area. It’s a staple to Winter garden being full of old-style architecture and brick shops that are mostly family-owned businesses. That is what creates the charm about this area. It makes for an amazing backdrop for photos. Also after your photoshoot please grab a bite to eat with the locals if you are not from the area. You will be immediately welcomed and leave with a piece of the charm that’s always spoken about when it comes to this area!
If Skyscrapers, big parks, wall art, rooftop parking garages, and cute ice cream and coffee shops are your thing. Then this is the area for you to do a photo shoot. The rooftops and parking garages make for a grand background with the cityscape In your pictures. There is also lots of wonderful wall art to take pictures in front of all over the area. Let’s not forget the cool coffee and ice cream shops to enjoy while taking pictures. A hidden gem downtown is the library which has some amazing architecture on the inside making for some unique photos. There is Lake Eola located downtown as well. It is a huge lake park that also has great cityscape backgrounds, wooden bridges, and a beautiful gazebo in the park. There is so much to enjoy downtown there is no shortage of options for pictures in this area at all!
This park might be the smallest one of the bunch, but it packs a punch. It is a very small intimate park that has the most amazing Moss trees and even has these Italian Roman-style pillars where you may even see wedding ceremonies being held. It is a very intimate park where you will see plenty of people taking engagement photos and wedding photos all the time. It’s located on the water and is truly a beautiful park.
Disney DISCLAIMER:: Due to Covid – 19 currently if you are not staying on the property at the hotel it may be a bit impossible to get in. But if you are staying there during these times and want to have a photoshoot done for you and your loved ones. This just might be my favorite Disney property as far as taking pictures! IT’S BREATHTAKING! The Jaw-dropping grounds have an amazing Victorian interior decor full of opulence from the marvelous Disney-themed marbled floors to a magnificent chandelier you can take pictures with on the second floor. The outside has beach areas and other areas that are covered in beautiful flowers and even has bushes shaped into swans for crying out loud! One of the most amazing places to take photos whether it be for family, couples, or weddings it’s absolute perfection for pictures!
Located in St Cloud which is a little way out from the Orlando area but is absolutely worth the drive. This woodsy conservation area is full of magic with the high grass and trees looking majestic to a point it doesn’t even look real! It looks like you left Florida entered an enchanted forest and If you walk long enough you may even run into the beauty and the beast castle somewhere in your travels. ::Laughs:: No seriously the trees here are so amazing looking for pictures it really does look like an enchanted forest! This is one of those places you have to get there early for sunset photos as the parking area is very small and it gets packed quickly at that time with people taking pictures. P.S Bug spray! Lots of it! The insects are enchanted too and won’t leave you alone here
The park sits on a lake with shops, cobblestone roads, peers, and they all make for great pictures in this area. Now on to the best part, the high grass area. It’s absolutely gorgeous with a flower patch area when it’s the season they bloom. Nearby to the high grass area is the beautiful rock bridge overlooking the lake that is a lot of photographers’ favorite place and might be the most taken shot in the park. Just a few blocks up there is another small lake area. It is still considered part of Baldwin park and it has a small lake that has rock pads you can cross. When in the middle of this rock path it makes for amazing photos of the river and the bridges that reflect in the water. A remarkable area for a photoshoot and truly a hidden gem!
Disney DISCLAIMER:: due to covid 19 unless you are staying at the resort property or dining there they will not allow you on the grounds. Ok with that out of the way. If you are staying there or dining there and curious about a photoshoot it’s a beautiful modern resort to have your pictures taken at. You have the outdoor grounds in the back sitting on a lake. Where you can see the Disney sky-liners going by in the background! Also, they have an area with amazing wall art of some people’s favorite Disney movies. Plus beautiful pathways and architecture and landscape. Side note they have an awesome Terrance upstairs you can watch the fireworks from Epcot as well!
