@MsGinkgo:  All great locations! I think a permit is required at the Distillery District as well.

Other ideas, Yorkville, I met a photographer that shot a lot of engagement pics there, some cute shots.

U of T. The ROM. Harbourfront. High Park.

there’s also the wavy boardwalks down along the habour front.

 

If you’re driving, Mimico has a really great habour where you can see the skyline

Port Credit has a great harbour as well

I’m sure I’ll think of more….

@MrsPhilly: good patios downtown are actually a little hard to find although Oliver and Bonacini (i think that’s how you spell it) on the corner of Yonge and Front has a nice patio, but it’s more ‘upscale’, there are a few bistro cafe’s near the music garden that usually have tables outside and they serve GREAT coffee. there’s one in particular, i think it’s called the music garden cafe, it’s got a pretty cool interior too if i remember correctly.

who’s the photog?

The Toronto Islands are super pretty for pictures. You can get some great pictures from there with the skyline in the background. I had a friend get her engagement photos done over they and they look awesome. And as others have said Harbourfont, High Park, Steam Whistle area, would all be pretty as well.

@burnabrenna:  +1 for the Toronto Islands. You can get so many types of shots there. Skyline, beach, old time architecture, gardens. Plus, if the maze is open, that could get interesting.

@MrsPhilly:  I second (and third) a lot of the places already suggested – distillery (although it’s kind of common), UofT…

Also consider, Kensington Market (perfect on a Sunday) and Union Station (the upstairs old portion). You can also look into whether or not the Royal York will allow photos (I’m sure your photog will know). The waterfront is beautiful pretty much anywhere along it – you could head towards Exhibition stadium and take pics along the water and at the Princess Gates?

 

There are also a bunch of beautiful parks in the city – ask your photog for suggestions and I’m sure they’ll know of one close to the location you choose.

 

Have fun!

How about your workplace? Anything that’ll make a nice backdrop? I’m a barista, so I’m going into the cafe after-hours for ours. It’s going to be super-cute. I can make hearts in latte art, so that’ll play in.

@MrsPhilly:  actually, there’s an interesting looking coffee place in the distillery. It’s called Balzac’s Coffee Roaters. Here’s a link to a pic of the outdoor seating http://www.torontoimages.ca/distillery%20district/pages/1200%20-%20The%20Distillery%20District%20-%20Balzac's%20Cafe.htm

and here’s the indoor area http://www.photo-serendipity.com/index.php?showimage=17

If the links don’t show up, I apologize. I’m on my iPad right now.
