My Favorite Shooting Locations

Here are a few of my favorite shooting locations that have never let me down!

This list is always growing and can be used as inspiration!

At the bottom of this page, you’ll find a map with even more shooting location ideas.


In Your Own Home!

in-home sessions are a favorite of mine! Let me capture life where it’s lived most.

The Lumen Room – Dallas

This bright and airy natural light studio is located in Dallas near Fair Park. This classic look is stunning for anyone!!! Lumen Room Sessions are $425 – 1 Hour of Shooting Time, $75 product credit, downloadable online gallery, studio rental fee included. Find more info here

Rockledge Park – Grapevine

Stunning waterfront location, great for most sessions – especially engagement! Watch out, it gets windy up there

Oak Lawn Park – Dallas

This park is gorgeous and versatile! Perfect for any type of session. Great mixture of natural and architectural elements.

White Rock Lake – Dallas

One of my favorite locations for sunset sessions! This location is versatile and boasts a great variety of backgrounds.

TP Hill – White Rock Lake – Dallas

Tandy Hills – Fort Worth (Mid Cities)

this lush nature reserve has gorgeous scenery with a view! Perfect for dreamy sunset and early morning sessions. Great for any type of session, including kiddos.

Downtown Dallas

from Deep Ellum to the Majestic Theater, there are countless photo opportunities in the heart of our city. The best part about a downtown session is the unlimited background options within a small distance. Most ideal for families with older children, seniors, and couples.

Fort Worth Botanical Gardens

with countless backdrops, you can’t go wrong here. No matter what time of year, these gardens are great for any type of session.

Crystal Canyon Park – Arlington

Here you’ll find nature, paths, natural stones, bridges, and much more! Perfect place for kids to run and play during our session

Klyde Warren Park – Dallas

Want a mixture of urban and nature? This is the perfect place. Ideal for any type of session!

Skyline – Dallas

Use our gorgeous Dallas skyline featuring the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge as the backdrop for your next shoot! Map locations are Continental Bridge Gateway Plaza & Trinity Overlook Park

Grapevine

Again, you can’t go wrong here! This historic town is home to countless photo opportunities from urban Main Street to nature at the Botanical Gardens.

Bars of Dallas

I love to shoot at the places that mean the most to you! An engagement session at your favorite date spot is always a win!

Sundance Square, Downtown – Fort Worth

This city can be used in so many ways! Fort Worth is known for its southern charm, but this doesn’t mean your session has to be western! This downtown area has an abundance of backgrounds, no matter what time of year or style you have in mind.

Lancaster Ave, Downtown – Fort Worth

This street has many historical buildings including the US Postal Service Building with crisp and clean features to the grungy style of this abandoned warehouse pictured below. Great for any type of session.

Japanese Gardens – Fort Worth

this garden is well worth their $75 shooting fee because of it’s beauty year-round. Guarenteed to provide a stunning backdrop to your next session. Perfect for any type of shoot!

Trinity River – Downtown Fort Worth

Ideal for sunset sessions. Utilize the river, multiple bridges, clock tower view and nature itself! Because of it’s convenient location, often times I use this river as a secondary spot when shooting downtown and we want to add some green to our session!

The Village – Colleyville (Mid Cities)

Located off of Highway 26, this cute little community offers clean, crisp, natural, and architectural backdrops for your next session. Great for any type of shoot!

Lakeside Park – Dallas

Near the Highland Park community, you’ll find this dreamy public park available for your next session. The well-kept park offers many elements including bridges, willow trees, benches, and various other backdrops.

Stockyards – Fort Worth

Love a southern vibe? Then maybe the stockyards are for you! This location always produces beautiful images with a rustic flair.

Highland Park United Methodist

Not only is this our home church, but my goodness it’s gorgeous! These classic architectural elements guarantee a session you’ll love for years to come.

Bob Jones Park – Southlake (Mid Cities)

I adore shooting here because of the wide range of natural backgrounds. Trails galore, a wide variety of native trees, and a small lake provide a beautiful setting.

Melrose Park – Bedford (Mid Cities)

this cute park nestled in the Bedford community is simple and stunning!

Bicentennial Park – Southlake (Mid Cities)

off White Chapel Blvd you’ll find the gem tucked away next to the baseball fields! There’s a wide range of photo opps within a small area, great for kids!

Keller Park – Mid Cities

From early spring to early fall, you can find wildflowers growing all along the trails of this Keller Park!


Here is a great tool I’ve created to help you decide on your session location. Deciding on the perfect spot can be overwhelming and difficult, so I wanted to alleviate some of the anxiety you may experience!

Below you’ll find green icons for an outdoor or park type setting, yellow for an urban location, blue for variety, and pink for locations I’m interested in photographing but have not yet had to opportunity to use. Most of the locations have photos as well as a brief description.

Feel free to open the map on your computer or phone in a separate tab by clicking on the direct link at the bottom of the page; using the map this way allows you to filter down to only the type of locations you’d like to see (such as only view park type locations).

This is only a simple guide; if you’d like to shoot somewhere not located on this map I’m more than happy to accommodate you! This map is constantly changing and being updated, there are still many places that need to be added!

A reasonable travel fee applies to any location with a driving distance of 20 miles or greater outside of 76053, starting at $40.
