Let their team do their magic, and you won’t even have to lift your finger that much and stress yourself over the weather’s unpredictability. Plus point, it’s also very comfortable and warm indoors most of the time during winter. Who wouldn’t want superb shots done comfortably, right?

If you don’t prefer to go far and feel the city-vibe, Financial District is probably the best location for your winter engagement photos. The snow accentuates the city giving off a breath of fresh air with a bit of magic from the usual city buzz. Surrounded by cozy cafes and stunning building structures, you can explore these too and add a story to the shoot. Explore the streets together like the first time and make the most out of this.
As the heart of the whole of Toronto, the streets are usually pretty busy, but you can work around the timeframe of 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, where the roads have only fewer people. Another best thing for this location is that you don’t need to get a permit (unless you’re shooting inside an establishment, that’s a different case).
