So, you’re recently engaged and totally stressed out about where to take your engagement photos? Don’t worry, I got you!!! I also completely understand. If you where to ask where to take your engagement photos in California and I would have an arsenal at my finger tips. However, when we moved to Dallas, I felt like I was completely lost and starting over. Actually, half the time I was literally lost driving. However, I quickly was able to find some of amazing locations for engagement session in Dallas. Plus, it was fun going on daily adventures location scouting! I will even admit that Texas sunsets have blown California sunsets out of the park.
Let’s be honest. Engagement sessions are the best part of the wedding experience. I love getting to spend time with my couples and getting to know them more. Engagement sessions also help the wedding day smoother because ya’ll are used to being in front of the camera and feel comfortable. However, I know that engagement session planning can be stressful and that’s where I come in. That is why I send all couples helpful information to help them prep for their session so the experience can be fun and stress free. Here are my favorite locations in the Dallas Fort-Worth Metroplex for engagement sessions!
