The Best Columbus Locations for Engagement Photos
Before scheduling engagement photos with our couples, we ask if they have anywhere in mind, or a particular vision for their engagement session. If they don’t we have plenty of suggestions. Obviously there are SO many options here in Columbus, but we’ve lined up a few of our faves with some photo proof and the reasons why we like them. So, in no particular order, here are our favorite locations in and around Columbus Ohio for engagement pictures.
1 Battelle Darby Metropark
What we love: The openness, we can get vast epic images as well as tight portraits, and you don’t even have to move. There’s also an educational center with restrooms where you can change into your second outfit, or do hair and makeup touch ups. There is plenty of shade for those summer sessions to keep cool, and when the leaves start to change, it is truly magical.
2 Goodale Park
What we love: You can bring your pup! Goodale is very dog friendly, with open spaces, shade from the hot sun, and winding sidewalks that create dimension, depth and interest in your photos. Not to mention, it’s just a short walk to the Short North for dinner and cocktails after!
3 Streets of German Village
What we love: The brick roads, the quaint houses, and the ability to get an ice cream cone at Jeni’s or a cup of coffee at either Stauf’s or Pistacia Vera. We think adding in a lifestyle element to your session can be really fun! Then if you want a floral or nature backdrop we can easily head over to Schiller Park.
4 Ohio State Campus
What we love: O-H! We love the nostalgia. It’s always so fun to incorporate a location that has meaning to the two of you such as where you met, had your first date, or got to know one another. Whether you bonded over football and tailgates or you met in the library, we can weave that story into your photos.
5 Scioto Mile and Bicentennial Park
What we love: The skyline and the Main St. bridge ( the arch ). We couldn’t be 614 Wedding Photography if our cities main landmarks weren’t some of our favorite locations to shoot. We love the way the golden sunlight shimmers on the buildings windows, and how neutral everything is. That really allows our couples to pop off the background.
