DFW Engagement Locations: Nature Edition

Engagement photos are a great way to celebrate and share your love. Use them on your save the dates, invitations, or to decorate your home. Another reason to take engagement photos: it’s an opportunity to get to know your wedding photographer and get a feel for what it’s like being in front of the camera before your wedding!

I may be biased, but I think engagement photos are wonderful. I love getting to know couples in a relaxed setting. When planning a session, I always ask if there’s a location that’s special to the couple or if they would like a list of recommendations. My location suggestions always include a nature inspired location and more urban settings. Today I’m giving you a sneak peek into my favorite DFW engagement locations: Nature Edition.

 

Stone Creek Park

Flower Mound, TX

This beautiful creek flows over beautiful, large rocks that create a beautiful backdrop for engagement photos. Climbing the rocks are so much fun and, if you’re feeling adventurous, dip your feet in the water.


Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center

Denton, TX

A little hidden gem, this Heritage Center is only 10 minutes from downtown Denton, TX. With trails that offer a variety of scenery, from evergreens to fields of tall grass.


Arbor Hills Nature Preserve

Plano, TX

A popular spot, and for good reason. Arbor Hills offers both paved and unpaved trails, as well as creek. It’s also a great place for to see wildflowers in the spring.


Tandy Hills

Fort Worth, TX

City skyline at sunset? Yes please. It’s a favorite of mine (I took my maternity photos here)


WHITE ROCK LAKE

Dallas, TX

There aren’t many reasons I would want to wake up before the sun, but this would be one of them. A beautiful pier, park benches, and an art deco boat house are just a few features you can find here.


THE QUARRY

North Texas

There’s a beautiful limestone quarry here in North Texas and it doesn’t look like Texas at all. It’s private property, but the owner welcomes photographers for a small fee.


These are some of my favorite nature inspired locations. Which one is yours? Did I leave out a location that you think would be perfect for engagement photos?
