Top 3 Photography Location Spots For Great Memories
When Wanderlust Portraits relocated to Central Florida, we began as Winter Garden photographers, calling the newer Hamlin development, “home”.
Right away we fell in love with the downtown area, Plant Street. It wasn’t long before we got a feel for the best locations. When it comes to Winter Garden photography sessions, there are a few places that stand out – pets and dogs are welcome to join!
I’m so excited to share them with you. If you feel there’s any we’ve overlooked, be sure to drop us a message.
1. Tucker Ranch – Hot Family Photographer Pick
Tucker Ranch Recreational Park and Nature Preserve is the areas’ largest park, located at 100 Avalon Road. A somewhat newer addition to the area. Tucker Ranch Park debuted in 2018 after a handful of unexpected delays from Hurricane Irma.
Beautiful Spanish moss, oak, and pine trees are sprawled throughout this 209-acre nature preserve, perfectly complimenting the lush green grasses and blossoming foliage.
Perfect for families, nature lovers, or anyone who loves the outdoors – any time of year. With plenty of shade and a playground for the kids to play on while Mom & Dad sneak a few photos in, many wonderful memories have been made here.
2. Plant Street
By popularity, this is definitely our most requested location photo sessions. If you’re from Winter Garden, you’re likely familiar with what is definitely, the coolest street in town.
While locals drive their golf carts to a number of choices amongst a bustling row of restaurants, cafes, and bars – it’s a gorgeous backdrop for any photographer. Gather your loved ones, grab an ice cream at Scoops and take a stroll down Plant Street while the Wanderlust Portraits photographers work their magic.
The whimsical Plant Street is perfect for any resident. Recreate a number of memories such as heading to the Saturday morning farmers market, or sharing meals and drinks at your favorite restaurant.
A 10 out of 10 for anyone looking for that small-town charm.
3. Oakland Preserve – Ideal For Winter Garden Photographers
Located just outside of Winter Garden at 747 Machette Trail, Oakland, Fl. Oakland Preserve is a common destination for our nature-loving locals, with an abundance of hiking trails and lush greenery.
Nestled just offshore from Lake Apopka is this oh-so-scenic 128-acre nature park.
A very similar vibe and backdrop to Tucker Ranch, but definitely worth including if it’s closer to home. There’s also more to do here in the way of activities if you wished to make a day of it with friends and family.

Orlando Neighborhood Favorite – Disney World Resort
Located just a few minutes away is the most iconic theme park around the globe, Disney World! After much debate about whether or not to mention it on the list as it’s not actually located in Winter Garden, Florida – given its popularity, we thought it deserved at least a quick shout-out.
Many locals looking for area photographers have Disney World annual passes and wish to capture beautiful memories eating their favorite snacks, perhaps with a backdrop to your favorite attraction.
Disney World photography is ideal for anyone looking to capture their joy and love of the parks in a photo shoot session.
