One of the most common questions I get is where should we got to take our photos. Fortunately, in Dallas, we have several amazing options. My number one recommendation when it comes to choosing a location for your photo session is choose a location that has special meaning to you. It could be where he popped the question, and you said yes… Maybe it’s where you had your first date… or even where your little one took his first steps… there are so many options to choose from.

As a Melissa Markle Photography bride, you will also receive a copy of our exclusive Engagement Session Style Guide magazine. Another perk of being a Melissa Markle Photography bride.

Don’t worry! Our family and individual sessions receive our exclusive Portrait Session Style Guide magazine.

Still need a little help choosing a location for your engagement session or portraits? Below is a list of fantastic options in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Some of these locations are free and some do require a fee for professional photography or admission. These fees do change frequently so be sure to verify fees and restrictions on the venue’s website or by calling the location. Feel free to ask questions or let me know if you have another favorite location not listed here!
