A romantic summer White Rock Lake couples session in Dallas, Texas

One of my favorite things about relocating to Dallas has definitely become location scouting for engagement sessions. It has become a whole family affair in my household. My daughter will now even point to random fields and say “Mom! That is a great place for photoshoots!” while driving.  As a Dallas Wedding Photographer, I am always looking for wide open outdoor locations for engagement sessions with soft, natural lighting. The moment I found White Rock Lake, my photographer’s heart burst. White Rock Lake has definitely become one of my favorite spots in Dallas for engagement sessions. Why you ask? Lemmmmmme tell ya! Open fields + lake with dock access + the Dallas skyline. Oh! And the light is sososo perfect. Also, did I mention, it’s green?! Your California girl ain’t used to all the green but I will not complain one bit.

Okay. Enough about White Rock Lake. These two, Marci and Johnny, stole the damn show. These high school sweethearts brought the fiiiiiiire. They even followed my one and only rule for engagement sessions — allow yourselves to be wildly in love and have some damn fun.  As we ventured around one of my favorite locations at White Rock Lake, the sunset transformed the sky into gorgeous pink and orange hues. This lighting is my favorite for engagement sessions! It is so romantic and dreamy! Texas sunsets are slowly beating out California sunsets. I cannot believe I just said that!
