10 Best Parks for Outdoor Family Portraits

Our clients often ask us, “Which is a good park for family portraits?” Since we’ve been photographing families since 2008, we decided to create a list of our favourite 10 parks and why we love them!

1. Perdana Botanical Garden (Taman Botani Perdana)

The Perdana Botanical Garden, formerly known as Taman Tasik Perdana or Lake Gardens, is situated in the Heritage Park of Kuala Lumpur. Famously known for the beautiful yellow canopy architecture in the centre of the park, locals often come here for photos and fun activities such as picnics, biking, and even skateboarding! What’s special about this park is that there’s always something different to photograph as they have more than 10 different areas to explore, such as an outdoor area with a huge children’s playground, jogging and cycling tracks, a Hibiscus Park, an Orchid Garden, The Sunken Garden, Deer Park, Bamboo House, and much more. It is the perfect outdoor place for families to have a wonderful time, having a picnic session or plainly enjoying the surrounding nature with little ones and having these moments captured. We have been here hundreds of times, and we never get tired of this beautiful park!

Entrance Fee: Free
Opening Hours: 7am – 8pm

2. TTDI Park

This park is a hidden gem, mostly known to locals, located in a quiet housing area in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail. Its main feature is a huge lake surrounded by more flora and people walking on the tracks. It is a beautiful spot for families to have a relaxing morning or evening and for their photographs to be taken when the golden hour hits them stunningly. Children can also wade in or catch small fish in the nearby stream. There might even be a cameo in your photographs of the monkeys living in the park! Just remember to not feed the monkeys, as they can be rather aggressive!

Entrance Fee: Free
Opening Hours: 6:45am – 7pm

Pre-Wedding Shoot at KLCC Park: Wee Chong & Eri

While most couples go through the proposal stage first, Wee Chong and Eri did things the other way around. They met as colleagues in 2012 and only fell in love in December 2018. From there, things started progressing smoothly and very quickly too! They met each other’s parents three months later, found a home together in June, and had their ROM the following month. Even though they both knew they were serious about being committed to each other for life, Wee Chong didn’t want to miss the opportunity to make it special for them, so he officially proposed to Eri in August.

They still had a customary wedding ceremony to do after that, so that’s when they asked us to do a series of pre-wedding photos. They met us at KLCC park, equipped with not one… but THREE different outfits for the shoot! It was a hot and sunny day and the park was huge. But somehow we managed to cover quite a bit of ground and capture these moments with plenty of laughter and spontaneity in-between. More photos below.
