15 Places in Buffalo & western New York to take your Engagement Photos!

So you're engaged - how exciting!! It's time to show off your love (and that new bling) with some engagement photos! Stumped on where to go though? I've compiled a list of my top 15 favorite places to take engagement pics in the Buffalo and Western NY area.


Buffalo's Canalside area is truly, well - Buffalo! With views of downtown and Lake Erie, industrial bridges and gorgeous sunsets, it easily made its way onto this list of top places to take engagement photos in Buffalo.



E-ville is my favorite place to get some classic winter engagement photos. I love the variety of backdrops there are to use - the quaint shops in town, beautifully designed bars and restaurants and picture-perfect scenery at Holiday Valley and McCarthy Hill.

What could be sweeter than playing with your hunny in the streets of the cutest little town in America? Hit Elm Street Bakery or 42 North Brewing to start your photo adventure with a latte or a brew then explore all that Main St East Aurora has to offer!



If you're from Buffalo, odds are you've been visiting Delaware Park your entire life. So why not incorporate this iconic Olmsted park into your engagement photos? Granted, it can be busy at certain times of the year, but with 350 acres to play on it's easy to find some hidden corners for gorgeous photos.



It doesn't get much more "Buffalo" than this with Lake Erie sprawled before you and views of the city's skyline and iconic grain elevators. There's so many areas to choose from - Gallagher Pier, Tifft Nature Preserve, Wilkeson Pointe, Bell Slip and more.
