Make The Cedars Haliburton Your Photo Studio

Whether you’ve booked a romantic vacation, a family reunion, or a yoga retreat, the best souvenir of your stay is the gift of professional photography sessions to mark the occasion.

Sometimes, it takes an outside party to capture the perfect moment. Our trusted photographer has the gear and, more importantly, a terrific eye for capturing the joy from time spent in the Haliburton Highlands.

At The Cedars Haliburton, portrait sessions never feel boring or awkward. There’s really no better place to document your journey!

Smart Phone Pictures Won’t Always Do

In this day and age, where everybody carries a camera with them all the time, selfies don’t feel special. However, booking a session with a professional photographer makes the resulting images more meaningful and striking. With a designated photographer, nobody is missing from the picture, and captivating moments are captured at distances greater than arm’s length.

Smartphones are great for documenting the day-to-day activities while you’re here. However, a set of professional photos from an experienced photographer will genuinely stand out as a visual document highlighting this time in your life.

All the Nature You Want Is Here

Why spend time driving around your city looking for a serene, natural environment when you can take advantage of Ontario’s cottage country’s many beautiful views. A visit to Haliburton eliminates the need for photoshopped backdrops and artificial studio backgrounds. Fake forested backdrops or urban parks are mere stand-ins for the majesty of nature found just outside our cottage rental doors.

If it’s a natural setting you want, The Cedars Haliburton offers the real deal from every angle.

Enjoy a private photo session that’s as casual and laid back or spontaneous and fun as you want it to be.

It’s important to stop and enjoy life’s little pleasures. It’s also nice to look back and appreciate the people and places that resonated with us. Your chosen images can be framed and hung on your wall or shared with friends online.

The Charm of Picturesque Lakefront Cottage Rentals

Whether you want a beautiful family portrait for your living room wall or a new image for your family Christmas card, The Cedars Haliburton’s lakefront cottage rentals provide a scenic venue. 

If you’re hosting a wellness seminar or a yoga retreat, consider this the perfect opportunity to capture images to kickstart your next print or social media marketing campaign.

Gorgeous lakeside reflections, silhouettes in front of the sunset, or forest-framed portraits: the creative possibilities are endless.

Why Hire a Local Photographer?

First, Cedars Haliburton can vouch for the talent of the photographer who arrives on site. Your photographer is already familiar with our property and the surrounding area.

Secondly, you’ll appreciate working with someone who understands the best lighting and framing options. A local can help you capture the essence of a Haliburton retreat with less time wasted.

Plus, hiring a resident of the area adds another dash of local flavour to your overall experience.

Benefits of Professional Photography in Natural Settings

There’s a reason why people love taking photos outside.

Outdoor lighting can be more flattering than artificial studio setups. The woods provide a calming backdrop that is timeless and universally appealing. Trees, lakes, and campfires don’t just speak to us as Canadians; being in the great outdoors remains an invigorating experience for all.

You don’t have to be adventurous to feel rejuvenated after spending time outdoors. That exuberant feeling often reveals itself in the photos you take.
