If you're in the planning stages of your wedding or just got engaged (congrats!!) and are thinking about where your engagement shoot and wedding photos will be taking place, look no further. Whether you're a Torontonian or not, this vibrant, urban city offers endless choices for picture perfect scenery as well as the surrounding Greater Toronto Area. Depending on the location you prefer, permits may be mandatory and may have certain restrictions. There are also those locations that are free and do not require any permits. Always be mindful that some of these areas are public places and you cannot always guarantee your photos to be free from those lingering (sometimes gawking) people in the background.
