I remember this summer I was a Hamilton wedding photographer for Nikki and Tommy. We haven't met before their wedding as they live in another province but we went through all details of how their day should look like via emails and when I arrived to photograph their wedding we had it all figured out.
They decided to have their wedding photography hamilton in a very beautiful Dundrum Castle. It is a romantic ruin with beautiful views. I find this place very inspirational. Make sure if you are looking for a perfect wedding photographer in Hamilton that the person knows the venues and all the interesting spots around it.
Dundrum Castle is a perfect spot for an outdoor ceremony and a wedding photography session in Hamilton afterward. Wonderful views, lots of wildflowers, big trees, oozing history and a wonderful pile of stones! We took an advantage of the garden nearby and with peonies that were in full bloom, we captured amazing pictures.
Nikki and Tommy decided to have their wedding reception in Grand Olympia. I have to say that it is a very lovely venue and the staff is very friendly and professional.

Another couple that I want to introduce to you is fantastic Lynnden and Dustin. Their search for a perfect wedding photographer Hamilton area ended at my home office when we had lots of laughs and planned their special day with all details.
I was waiting impatiently for their wedding day to come as I knew that is was going to be a treat for me as a wedding photographer in Hamilton. They decided to use a farm from my neighborhood for their wedding session with a fantastic rustic backyard. I was more than excited!
It was warm September day but my head was full of ideas and I could have stayed there and shot for countless hours but our guests waited at the Liuna Station.
Let me only mention that the farm had a barn, duck house, horses and gardens and the bridesmaids and my beautiful bride was wearing cowboy shoes. If you are looking for unique locations for your wedding photography in Hamilton, don't be afraid of using not very popular wedding spots and show your personality through your wedding pictures.
Your wedding photographer and you should understand each other so open yourself at the initial consultation and tell your wedding photographer about your interests and if you love a specific area like Hamilton.
One of my favorite locations for a wedding photography in hamilton is Liuna station. I loved how grand the inside and outside of the building looked since I first saw it. It’s a beautiful, historic building and it is just what you might be looking for to fill your dream of a "Vintage Glamour" wedding.

Another wedding that I had a pleasure to photograph this year was Julia's and David's wedding which was held in my neighborhood, Dundas. Dundas is considered as a part of Hamilton and I think that one of its places deserves mentioning as a potential spot for your wedding photography around Hamilton area. It was a rainy September day so decided to take some pictures at Dundas Driving Park. It had a roof that kept my couple dry and I could work around the place and take some beautiful pictures.
On a sunny day, you can think about entry to the trails at Rock Chapel in Hamilton which might be nice and is easily accessible.

With my couple Lindsay and Travis for their wedding photography in Hamilton, we went to Albion Falls.
One of the most beautiful falls in the region. As it is a common attraction for those who live in/around the Hamilton area can be crowded and it is not easily accessible but we found a spot at the Mount Albion Falls with a great view on the fall and were able to capture great pictures.
It is very important that your wedding photographer is flexible and creative. Lindsay and Travis's ceremony was held on the rooftop of Carmen's in Hamilton which was a fantastic and elegant choice.
Hamilton has an amazing number of waterfalls that you can enjoy. I have two - Webster's Falls and Tew's Falls, 5 minutes away from my home and I love taking my couples there for the engagement sessions.
We usually split the session into two parts so we have time to take pictures at both locations and the couple can change outfit meanwhile.


Hope that my thoughts on this helped you a little to choose you perfect wedding photography location in hamilton. There is lots more to discover and write about and please let me know if you have any questions and I will be happy to answer all of them.
