Bre Z. Photography | Photoshoot Location Ideas

The following are locations I both am familiar with and/or have actually photographed at to help us choose a great spot for your shoot. Feel free to ask about more sample sessions to those that are linked to a blog post here. Please note that some locations have photography permit fee, I have listed those that I know of so far. I hold the photography permit already for WA State Parks. Don't hesitate to ask me about any location not listed that you have in mind!
