It can be great fun to create personalized Christmas cards to send to your loved ones that feature you and your family with a stunning backdrop.
And Toronto is full of great locations that are simply perfect for a Christmas card photoshoot.
So, here are five great locations that you should consider.
Great Locations in Toronto for Photoshoot
1. Casa Loma
By using online premade Christmas card templates, you can create amazing customized Christmas cards that show off your personality and flair.
For instance, with Mixbook, you simply need to choose a design that you like, personalize it by doing things like uploading the photo you want to use, and place your order to have your cards delivered to your doorstep.
But you first need to find great locations for your photoshoot.
In Toronto, if you can wait until Christmas lights and decorations are displayed, consider taking your photo at Casa Loma.
The historic Gothic Revival mansion in midtown Toronto, which overlooks the city, is an incredible place that could be ideal for your Christmas card setting, especially when you shoot during the annual Christmas light exhibit in which the mansion and its gardens come alive with magical lights and festive décor.
And if you’re a fan of any of the many TV shows and movies that have been filmed at Casa Loma, such as Crimson Peak, The Tuxedo, the X-Men series, and Titans – in which the building stood in for Batman’s Wayne Manor – your Christmas card photoshoot will feel even more special.
2. Village of Yorkville Park
Another ideal Christmassy location for your greeting card photoshoot is the Village of Yorkville Park, which goes all out on its festive light display and twinkling Christmas tree during the month of December.
It’s also the perfect place in Toronto to do your holiday shopping. So, whether you want to buy an outdoor kitchen grill, a pair of pajamas, or a box of luxury chocolates to give as gifts this year, you can kill two birds with one stone by shopping at the Village of Yorkville Park and using it as your photoshoot location.
3. The Distillery Winter Village
While the Village of Yorkville Park is certainly an ideal location for summing up Toronto’s Christmastime, if you want a backdrop that features European-style Christmas cabins selling snow globes, mulled wine, and other holiday season treats, head to the Distillery Winter Village.
It will be full of all the Christmas ambiance you could want to invoke a sense of seasonal magic and wonder.
4. Scarborough Bluffs Beach
You don’t have to choose a Christmassy-looking location for your photoshoot. Indeed, if you want to be organized with your Christmas cards early, you won’t want to wait around for Toronto’s holiday season to begin.
And if you’re sending cards to people who don’t live in Toronto, they’re sure to enjoy seeing sites of interest in the city.
If you’re looking for a natural backdrop for your Christmas card photoshoot, head down to Scarborough Bluffs beach.
The beautiful landscape makes an ideal location for photoshoots all year round, but you can add a holiday flavor by wearing Christmas sweaters or hats and wrapping yourself in tinsel.
5. The Don Valley Brick Works
Another beautiful natural location you can use for your Christmas card photoshoot in Toronto is the Don Valley Brick Works, which locals more commonly refer to as Evergreen Brick Works.
Today, the area is full of stunning trees and naturalized ponds, so you’ll find plenty of spots for the perfect photo opportunity.
Previously, the site was home to a brick manufacturing company. The bricks that were produced on this site were used to construct many Toronto landmarks, including Massey Hall, Osgoode Hall, and Casa Loma.
