Best Wedding + Elopement Photo Locations
Cragwood has many amazing photo locations for you to capture your special moments. Here are some of my favourites:
- The Lakehouse

The lake is a gorgeous and serene backdrop for your photos. You can pose on the jetty, the bridge, or the gazebo, and get some stunning shots of the water and the sky. The lake looks especially beautiful at sunset, when the colours reflect on the surface.
