Downtown Winter Park is a gorgeous location for any portrait session. It is one of our favorite locations to work because of the incredible amount of diversity to the landscape. It can cater to almost any style portrait session.
If you are looking for a nice park setting with beautiful trees, lush green grass and interesting architecture, central park is an amazing spot, especially for families, Or, maybe a chic urban vibe is more your thing, then heading down park avenue and using the swank shops, eateries and brick lined streets as a backdrop would work great! For Seniors, the small alleyways and plazas make for a wonderful setting with outdoor tabes and chairs placed in random locations, old brick buildings filled with character and splashes of color all around.
Another area to mention in the Downtown Winter Park area is The Rollins College Campus, I was going to give this location it's own spot on the list, but being that is essentially in Downtown Winter Park, I felt it was more fitting to list it with Winter Park as a whole. Although Rollins College is a GORGEOUS spot for portraits, it is worth mentioning that there is a permit fee required to photograph at this location, I believe at this time of writing it is currently set at $250. So keep that in mind if you are planning on photographing at the campus.
As much as I Love Winter park it does have one down fall and that is it can get very crowded on weekends or when there is an event going on. So parking can be very limited, and the crowds could limit the photo opportunities available. So with that said, it is important to plan ahead for your portrait session in Downtown Winter Park.
