Engagement Photoshoot in Dallas
One of my dearest, most talented, creative friends, Stephanie Drenka, was kind enough to take our engagement pictures a few months ago and they’re too beautiful not to share! It was nice being able to have one of our closest friends take our pictures, it definitely made things more relaxed and fun! Also, Barbara and my brother-in-law were there making the whole experience that much better and adding to the wonderful memory of this fun day!
In prep for the day, I had my hair and makeup done at La Bichette here in Dallas. They always do an amazing job!
For the locations, the first half of the photoshoot was at Griggs Park in Uptown because we wanted to have our dogs with us for some of the photos. We wanted the second half of the photoshoot to be more formal, so we did a quick outfit change, dropped off the pups and headed over to the Rosewood Crescent Hotel.
Some other options for an engagement photoshoot in Dallas are:
- The Mansion
- Downtown Dallas // Dallas Arts District
- Klyde Warren Park
- Trinity Groves //Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge
- Arlington Park
- Highland Park Village
- Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden
- Trinity River Audubon Center
- Bishop Arts District
Picking Engagement Photoshoot Poses
Also, as far as knowing how to pose and what types of pictures you want your photographer to capture, we found the image generator from Wedding Paper Divas to be very helpful. Of course there is no wrong way to do an engagement photo shoot, but if you’re looking for ideas one tip is to find photos that are within the same style as yours. Comfort is key!
To help, Wedding Paper Divas created an engagement photo tool for couples become inspired and find ideas that match their personality. The tool allows you to filter through options like casual or formal, find prop inspiration and even photos to take with the family pet (like we did below)!
