Dallas Engagement Session at Home


Top Engagement Photography Locations in Dallas, Texas

One of my top recommendations to my wedding couples is adding an engagement photography session to their wedding package. This is the perfect opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera and work together before we are together for 8+ hours on your wedding day. During your engagement photography session, we will be able to capture beautiful images for you to use on your wedding, save the dates, and use them for your wedding website or just for your home decorating your walls. But it is also a chance for us to get to know each other on a deeper level, and I can get an idea of how you and your partner interact with one other; this will help me make your wedding day run even smoother.

How to Choose a Location for Your Engagement Photography

When choosing a location for your engagement session, there are a few things to keep in mind. Because of the Texas weather always changing, depending on the season, your location might look different. You should also take into consideration the temperature during that season. Especially, if you want to wear a sleeveless dress in your photos, don’t book engagement photos in the winter. Because being cold and uncomfortable will translate into your photos.

Also, local events can significantly influence your location selection, as some locations are busier than others during certain seasons. For example, homecoming or prom season makes Flippen Park and Lakeside Park extremely busy during the weekend, so if you are looking to take your engagement photos there, I highly recommend shooting during the week to avoid the crowd. No matter where you choose to take your engagement photos, the most crucial part is to have fun together and turn it into a date.
