I’m in Central Florida, too, but am surrounded by forests and parks, so its not too difficult to find something around this area. I’m not sure exactly what you are looking for, but I’m assuming you’ll end up in a park somewhere. I was thinking it would be really cool to go to one of the springs, and then you could also take pictures next to the water, too. The springs are pretty “enchanted forest” to me.

Basically, the Ocala National Forest has tons of public area which have both forest and river/spring areas. I would probably start there. If you find an area on on spring fed river (I live near Silver River), that would be amazing too.

PS – I keep throwing the water idea out there simply becuase a lot of forests around here a too pine-tree / Florida Scrub happy, and I just don’t get “enchanted forest” from pine trees and brown bushes. The more water there is, the more mossy oaks/ferns you’ll find.

Highlands Hammock State Park is where I did my “ungagement” pictures. It looks very woodsy, not “Florida Beach-y” at all.

Hi There!  Thanks again for the rec on the DJ…I ended up booking him (well his partner, but he seemed great too)…It’s been many years but I thought UCF had an arboretum (like a botanical gardens that had tons of cool landscapes…other than that for “fantasy” what springs to mind is Bok Tower gardens…lots of trees and the really good fairytale like tower…and last time I was there the squirrels were out of control friendly (form overfeeding) so if you were really brave you could get some snow white surrounded by the woodland creatures type shots….it is a bit of a drive though…just checkout their site beautiful pics there…http://www.boktowergardens.org/
