Orlando is a magical city to get engaged in—with its many lush green state parks, historic houses, libraries, and chapels, and fun beachside spots, you’re sure to find the perfect place to pop that life-changing question. So whether you’re looking to catch the moment as it happens, or you’re heading to Orlando for your pre-wedding engagement session, you can choose from a myriad of incredible venues that will suit your personality and story.

Aside from the venue, the other important thing to secure is your photographer, of course. Your engagement photographer needs to be able to connect with you and understand your story, so that they themselves can tell it in the way you want it to be told. It can be overwhelming with so many options available, but we’re here to help you. Check out our list of the top ten engagement photographers in Orlando, FL, below, and so you can find your perfect photographer-match.
