Where to Take Perfect Family Photos in Calgary


A blazing spectrum of autumn leaves is our reward for living so close to those chilly mountains. Fall is a brilliant time for family photos, whether to commemorate the new school year or get a leg up on that annual Christmas card. Sure, you could hire a professional photographer, but with all those editing tools available nowadays, snapping yourself is a breeze (and easier on the wallet). Here’s a look at some of the most photogenic spots around the city.

Rundle Ruins
Just east of Stampede Park along 12 Avenue S.E., lies the remains of Calgary’s first hospital. Despite being torn down in the 70s, a cluster of sandstone walls were left, providing the perfect backdrop for photo shoots. It’s a popular spot on weekends for wedding pictures (and during grad), but head here on a weeknight and you should have the place to yourself.

Fish Creek Provincial Park
If you want a rustic, rural shot, but can’t make it out of the city, this is the spot for you. Canada’s largest urban park stretches for 19 km from east to west in south Calgary. With so many forested areas it’s hard to remember you’re in the city, but a network of pathways ensure you won’t get lost. If you’re lucky, you just might be able to capture a deer, owl or coyote in your shot.

Save your pennies and strike out for these photogenic spots. As a bonus, you’ll get a lovely outing amid the changing colours.
