When couples start planning their engagement session in Dallas, often the first question they ask is “Where should we take the photos?” Location plays a huge part in the engagement session experience. Choosing a place that fits your relationship, your style, and your vision is so important. I always like to ask if there are any places special to you, such as a coffee shop, a national park you both love, or even the first place you met.
Don’t have a location in mind? No problem! I have a list of beautiful Dallas engagement session locations I recommend based on your vision for your photos. If you’re looking to travel, I love doing sessions at unique destination locations. We can spend the day hanging out, exploring new terrain, and you can just think of me as a third wheel on your epic date! The options are endless.
About the session:
For Haley and Matthew’s adventurous Mount Scott engagement session, we chose to do a two part road trip! Haley is a fellow photographer and a very good friend of mine. When she approached me about shooting her engagements and destination wedding in Canada next year, I was ecstatic! The first part took place in Denton at our favorite new plant shop, True Leaf Studio. The modern, clean white space has the perfect lighting for earlier in the day when the sun is highest. Therefore, it was an ideal location for midday photos. Haley loves house plants and Matthew even bought her one as an engagement session gift (too cute!)
The second part was a road trip to Mount Scott at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. We popped champagne and watched the sun set behind the mountains in the distance. It was a breezy and pleasant summer day and the perfect setting for a romantic, adventurous engagement session. Haley and Matthew compliment each other so well and truly set an example of what love should be. They are communicative, patient, and above all, they support and uplift each other. I think that is so amazing. I absolutely cannot wait until their wedding next year!
