And you want to make sure each engagement photo is memorable in the process, right?  Every engagement photo should paint a picture of your love story, and these spots will help enhance the photos! *Updated December 2023*

1. Bowditch Point Park (Fort Myers, Florida)

This popular location is a must on this list and beautiful for engagement photo magic! Bowditch Point Park is known for its lengthy stretch of beaches along Florida’s Gulf Coast. Plus, there are beautiful areas you can choose from to take your photos. There are big rocks with a more private area to take photos and the long stretch of ocean providing a beautiful backdrop for engagement photos. Not to mention, this state park is a local’s favorite and is also heavily visited by snow birds during the winter season. Ask for the best times to photograph here and rest assure we will guide you!

2. Seagate Beach (Naples, Florida)

This is the location where we completed one of our very first photo shoots (at the suggestion of a former student of Priscila’s). So, if you’re looking for a low-key (in the morning at least) yet scenic spot for your engagement session, look no further than Seagate Beach! Located right behind the Naples Grande Beach Resort and Seagate Drive, this Naples beach is sure to become one of your favorites and it’s a very memorable spot for your engagement photos. Have your photos taken while you walk along the beach, on the beautiful boardwalk leading to the beach itself, or the many other scenic spots. 

Due to the influx of visitors, the City of Naples has limited free parking to Naples residents only. Make sure to get yourself a beach sticker to park in the Seagate Parking Lot for free. Metered parking is also available on site (debit and credit cards are accepted). 

3. Marco Island, South Beach Access (Marco Island, Florida)     

Furthermore, If you’re looking for some romance and variety in your engagement photo shoot, you’ll definitely find it here.  One of the most magical experiences the South Beach Access offers is witnessing the sunrise and sunset. Picture yourself strolling along the water’s edge as the sun paints the sky in hues of orange and pink, creating a mesmerizing backdrop for your evening. These moments of serenity are not just picturesque; they are soul-soothing and unforgettable for your engagement photos.

4. Downtown Fort Myers (Fort Myers, Florida)

If you’re looking for a livelier scene away from the water or parks, this is the spot for you! Downtown Fort Myers boasts some of the best scenery for the city enthusiast. There’s a plethora of modern architecture and beautiful spots to photograph by that will make your engagement photos stand out. This area can be just as romantic and provide an amazing backdrop for your modern engagement photos!

5. Via Miromar Beach, Naples, Florida

In addition, Via Miromar Beach is one of our absolute favorite spots for engagement photo shoots and elopements. Not only is it a much quieter setting to get your photos taken, if you take a walk down the beach after you enter, you’ll see natural rocks that can be used as a backdrop for your photos!

6. The Ritz-Carlton Luxury Beach Resort (Naples, Florida)

Finally, The Ritz-Carlton is a beautiful choice for it’s opulent setting. Choosing such a location for engagement photos can add an element of sophistication and elegance to your pictures.The Ritz-Carlton in Naples, like many luxury hotels, boasts beautiful gardens, architecture, and scenic views. These can serve as stunning backdrops for your engagement photos, providing a picturesque setting. You’ll find you have a choice between the stunning architecture of the hotel or the beautiful beach right behind the hotel’s boardwalk. Make sure to plan ahead as the beach behind the Ritz is very popular and can get quite crowded due to the public beach access right next to the hotel.

While this list is no where near the end all of locations, they are, in our opinion, the best! Looking for other engagement photo shoot locations or suggestions? E-mail us or contact us today! We’d love to hear from you!
