1. Mandalay Canal Walk at Las Calinas

The Mandalay Canal's European architecture, walkways, stairways, and the water gives the location a Venetian feel that you do not feel in any part in Dallas. Photographers for Indian weddings love this place as it looks a grand set from a romantic Bollywood love story. We at PhotoKumar love to take our Indian Bride and Groom for their pre-shoot, save the date and engagement photo section here.Get a quote.

2. Bishop Park at Legacy Town Center

The front of the fountain in Bishop Park is one of my favorite spots to photograph my couples in Plano. The mornings and evenings are the best time to go to get that gorgeous sunrise or sunset in the background. This location pulls off a high class style, and couples can get as adventurous and creative as they would like! Get a quote.

3. Silver Lake Marina at Grapevine Lake

The sunsets are breathtaking near the marina. Whether on you plan to stay on deck or set sail, Lake Grapevine is the perfect place for an engagement session. Get a quote.

4. Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens

The Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens offer the most beautiful and vast gardens in the entire DFW area, which delivers any atmosphere that a couple could want, such as taking walks over the waterfall, being blown away by November leaves, sharing romantic moments on the bench and getting lost in all the green!

5. Arbor Hills Nature Preserve

Arbor Hills Nature Preserve has such natural greenery near the Plano location. It holds a beautiful creek bed that our couples can get lost in during their engagement sessions. The golden hour light at Arbor Hills is stunning, too!  Get a quote.

Best time to visit Japanese Gardens in Texas is during the cherry blossoms season in April. It saves $$$ from viewing the cherry blossoms in Washington D.C or Japan! Get a quote.

How to choose the location

In any engagement photo shootthe location is of prime importance. It will determine the kind of photos that will be created, the aesthetic of the whole photo shoot and the activities that will be permitted. Sometimes couples shoot in more than one engagement photo shoot locationwhen they want to create a story or have many special places they want included in the shoot. Like many Indian couples insist that it should be done in traditional settings and Indian wedding photographersalso have places they take couples to for getting the feel of say, forests or a village while in the city. Here are some handy tips to help you choose a location for the engagement photo shoot.

Choose your aesthetic

Your engagement photo shootlocationshould be something that matches with your aesthetic as a couple. Both of you have to sit together and determine the kind of place that you would prefer. You might want to shoot amidst a lot of greenery or you might want to go to the beach and have a photo shoot. If it is in your budget, you can even choose exotic locales for your photo shoot. Like many Indian wedding photographers suggest their clients living abroad to fly to India to have a very traditional shoot. Alternately you can choose a quaint coffee shop to have your shoot in. if you have a mood board your photographer can help you find the perfect spot.

It should be flexible

Now many locations are dreamy but there are many restrictions when you are having a photo shoot there. In India there are many heritage locations where you are not allowed to shoot in certain places or take pictures of specific things and many activities are also prohibited. Therefore try to choose a location that is flexible and there are no hard restrictions. While shooting the photographer and you may come up with new ideas and that time you wouldn’t like anybody to restrict you.

Check beforehand

A good way to ensure that your engagement photo shoot is exactly how you want it is to go and visit the location of the shoot beforehand. Dallas Indian wedding photographersmake sure to take the client to the location that they will shoot in since sometimes the place is not what they imagined it to be. Like a grassy meadow could have been mowed down or a café might have changed their décor, etc. Going to multiple places and checking them out also helps give you an idea about the location that would serve best. That way you get to choose the one which is perfect and the shoot goes smoothly.

Sentimental value

A good way to choose a location for the engagement shoot is to pick a place that has some emotional value for you as a couple. You could have it at the first place you both met or a go to food joint that you frequent. Some couples like to go back to their home towns.

    Kumar did an excellent job photographing our daughter's wedding. He worked very hard to get great shots of almost every aspect of the evening. We couldn't be more pleased with his creativity and attention to detail. We highly recommend Kumar. He was nice to work with as well.

    I was quite happy with his professionalism and expertise. We had him photograph our surprise wedding, and he arrived early, and stayed late. He gave us a great quote, and took many pictures. Some of the pictures were a bit over processed before we received the digital copy, but he caught all the major moments, even through all the surprise chaos. I would highly recommend him, and even plan on using him again in the future.

    Kumar was fantastic to work with and his photos of the wedding were beautiful! He performed over and above what he initially promised, meeting us ahead of time for some 'preparation' shots and driving to an additional location in-between the ceremony and reception to re-create the scene of our first date/kiss. Many of his best photos captured natural interactions between my husband and I, the bridal party, and our guests. He was never too imposing. I highly recommend him, especially to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

    My whole experience with Photo Kumar was excellent! He was responsive, cooperative, creative, friendly, everything we hoped for! SO fast getting us photos, too! His style (photojournalism) was just up our alley, but he was great about getting the standard shots, too. HIGHLY recommend!

    Had a photoshoot yesterday with this awesome guy. He is fun and at the same time professional and is great to work with. We never had a photoshoot experience and were slightly uncomfortable at the beginning but Kumar had done a great job bringing the best poses out of us. We were thrilled to see the pics processed and sent back to us in less than a day's time and the photos were just suuuper! Thanks Kumar and we will definitely invite you over whenever we need another shoot!
