Happy Sunday!!! As promised, I’m sharing part 2 of the 10 cool locations for outfit photos that you absolutely should check out in Seattle. Make sure to check out all outfit details at the end of each outfit and links at the end of this post!
1. Frye Art Museum
704 Terry Ave, Seattle, WA 98104
Located in the First Hill neighborhood, the Frye art museum is not only free to the public but also such a hidden architectural gem. There are some street parking, much easily accessible than downtown Seattle for sure. Make sure you enter from the back where the ramp entrance is (pictured below) and take a few photos before entering the museum! It is a small museum but plenty of things to see if you take it slow, and don’t forget to pick up some art objects and knick-knacks that the gift shop carries!
2. Daejeon Park
1144 Sturgus Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144
Daejeon Park is named for Seattle’s sister city in Korea. It is a small park with parking right along it and features a Korean-style pagoda/pavilion. There really is not much more to see here, but I like to shoot at cool architectural locations, just to make the outfit photos look interesting.

3. Seattle City Hall
600 4th Ave, Seattle, WA 98104
Finding parking in downtown is always a challenge for us. It’s free on Sundays, but I’d say it’s super annoyingly rare to get a spot nearby wherever we want to shoot. I’d much rather take the bus downtown and walk everywhere, but obviously not on shooting days. Sometimes, it takes us half an hour to find a parking spot, kind of annoying, but it is Seattle I get it! I haven’t really been inside Seattle City Hall but the upper floor where the stairs are is cool space for fashion photography.
4. University of Washington Station (next to the Husky Stadium)
3720 Montlake Blvd NE, Seattle, WA 98195
Again, you can do no wrong with stairs. The UW station is located at the University of Washington campus. It has free parking (I mean for a few minutes, it’s fine!) and is a perfectly brightly lit and open space. Make sure you walk around, up and down the stairs. Shoot quickly otherwise, people would stare.
5. Bridge at the Arboretum Sewer Trestle, Washington Park
I’m pretty positive you will be able to find parking nearby and locate this bridge. Apparently, the Arboretum Sewer Trestle is a historic trestle in Seattle. I see tons of people going here for wedding and family photos. The bridge is old and mossy, but somehow it works with my outfit that day.
6. Kubota Garden
9817 55th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98118
Kubota Garden is a 20-acre Japanese garden in the Rainier Beach neighborhood. It’s a free public park and is one of my most frequent parks for outfit photos.
7. THE AMAZON SPHERES
2111 7th Ave, Seattle, WA 98121
The Amazon Spheres is a pretty iconic location that I absolutely recommend you guys to check out. Warning: it is a crazy busy and touristy location that it is impossible to take a few photos without having people walking right into your shots.
8. Union Square
600 University St # 2820, Seattle, WA 98101
This location is one of my favorite (quite hidden) locations in Seattle ever. It is again, another wide open and brightly lit space. I love the metal mirrored walls and the giant gate (not sure exactly what it is called, but check out more photos from my other outfit that you probably have not noticed that were shot at this same location, here.

9. I90 Biking Bridge
1400 Martin Luther King Jr Way S, Seattle, WA 98144 (Sam Smith park)
Find a street parking when you arrive at the Sam Smith park, walk-in and through the biking bridge to the other side. Below photos were taken on the other side of the bridge.

10. DISCOVERY PARK
3801 Discovery Park Blvd, Seattle, WA 98199
Have an afternoon picnic or walk here for the incredible sunset. You can walk all the way to the lighthouse or stop at this empty field to soak in the sunset. Park at the Discovery Park South parking lot and walk toward the Chapel – Ft. Lawton Historic District (Seattle’s historic landmark).
