7 Gorgeous Engagement Session Locations Near Seattle | Cameron Zegers Photography


Before getting to my list of stunning engagement sessions locations near Seattle, let’s talk about how to choose a location that is perfect for YOU:


  1. Consider your lifestyle and what suits you as a couple. Are there any meaningful locations that might be ideal for your engagement shoot? Where did you meet? What activities do you love doing together? Are you outdoorsy? Are you homebodies? Where is your favorite place to spend time together?
  2. Think about your wedding venue. Is it urban or outdoorsy? Consider taking your engagement photos somewhere with a different vibe from your wedding so you get two different looks in your photos.
  3. Consider the time of year. If you need to have your engagement session done at a certain time of year, think about how different locations will look. Some favorite locations aren’t accessible in the winter.
  4. Will you be bringing your dog? If so, make sure to pick a pet-friendly location.


If you’re still stuck on where to shoot, no worries! I’ve put together a list of beautiful locations. Here are some of my favorite engagement sessions locations near Seattle:


Discovery Park

Discovery Park has SO many options all packed into a relatively small space. Want open fields? Check. Beach? Check. Woodland? Check! And it’s right in the city! Easy peasy.

Seattle Waterfront

Shooting along the waterfront is perfect for getting a mix of city and water views.



On the ferry

I love photographing on the ferry! If your wedding venue is a ferry ride away for guests, it’s also a great photo for your Save the Dates!
