10 Best Outdoor Photoshoot Locations in Seattle – Part 4

Septemeber 16, 2019 marked my official 2 years of living and breathing the Seattle air. As some of you might know (if you follow me on Instagram) that I do go out exploring the city a lot. I love discovering local hip coffee shops and catching up with my friends for brunches. Every weekend, you’ll most likely find me outdoors hiking or taking outfit photos for my blog in the city.

I feel like 2 years have just gone by, so fast, but up until this date, I still find myself discovering new corners and new neighborhoods. There are just a lot more to go see and to do! As the title suggests, I’m sharing with you another 10 best locations for photoshoots in Seattle. So keep on reading to find out and don’t forget to scroll to the end to catch up with my previous 3 best outdoor photoshoot location lists.

1. Belltown Cottage Park
