Of course, we’re starting with the most enchanting and grandest possible location in Toronto. It’s none other than that breathtaking Casa Loma. Its lush landscape is incredible during fall. It highlights the castle and gives warmth to the whole scene. To add, the interior of the castle is showcasing its Gothic Revival style. With this place, you can easily live out a dreamy fairytale shoot with your partner.
Should you decide to shoot in here, it’s always best to ask for permission and ready necessary documents. This will also help you with scheduling the shoot during the wee-hours and get optimum results.

2.Fairmont Royal York

In contrast with the royalty and grandness of the first location, we are happy to take you to another era. Timeless and classic, Fairmont Royal York feels as if a scene ripped off from old romance film classics. Though without the usual nature scenery during fall, the warm light and rustic structure of the building may still pass for the season.
Always ask permission first before taking the shots to avoid issues that may arise. Also, since this is located in the heart of Toronto, you may also take outdoor couple shots in the city with the same warm tone. Reminder to pick, of course, the off-hours to avoid the crowd.

A fall engagement photoshoot is not complete without an outdoor shot. Earl Bales Park is one of the best outdoor locations you can work with! Though fall season is different every year and from one place to another, it’s still best to go out and see with your own eyes the change happening. Situated in North York, this park not only has a trail you and enough trees to play around with. They also have a scenic river view that’ll work so well for nature shots.
Since this is to be held on a public site, it’s best to start early and make sure necessary permits are processed. This will help you and your team make the most out of your time in the place.

Another excellent location near Toronto is Edwards Gardens. It’s located near Toronto Botanical Garden and houses its own scenic garden of various flowers from perennials to wildflowers. It also features a lovely rockery stream that encourages you to be more creative in your shots compared to the usual nature background. Picturesque and enchanting as is, it’s even more magical during the fall season. The leaves in their bright, warm hues suggest a love that is intense and warm.
Secure a permit before doing the photoshoot and make sure to start early. Since this is a popular tourist destination and a crowd-favourite for photoshoots, it’s better to be sure than sorry.

Last but not least, Muskoka. This is another crowd-favourite for engagement shoots or just about anything. A nice cozy place to get away from the city, they have everything you may ever need to relax and just have a great time. Be it trees, landscape, trail, cottages, and a picturesque lake. To add, the place just oozes with hygge making it even more comforting during the fall season.
Try to take shots during the early morning and afternoon during the golden hour to sunset. This will add superb warmth to your photos. Another thing to note, Muskoka is actually a district in Canada, and there’s so much to explore in the area. You can go around and coordinate with few establishments if you’re up for it and loved the place. Truly flexible, this place is just perfect for any season.
