The Dallas/Fort Worth area offers tremendous opportunities for capturing the excitement and romance of your engagement. Begin your photo session itinerary in the heart of Dallas at an iconic landmark, The Majestic. Nestled in the vibrant downtown area of Dallas, the theater stands as a testament to the city’s historic entertainment district that in decades past occupied the entire street. Now the final lasting structure from Theater Row, The Majestic claims accolades as both a Dallas and national historic landmark. Bring your photographer to the light-studded entrance of this classic theater. Arrange your first pose beneath the stately awning that frames the doors.
After several close up shots against the divided glass doors, have your photographer move farther back to encase more of the façade in the picture. Capturing the descending Majestic sign is a must, firmly rooting your engagement in Dallas culture and history. The beautiful arches of the windows and architecture of the ascending stories gives the background of your photos a stately urban appeal. For an engagement photography session scheduled toward evening hours, the illuminated sign and entrance will provide glamour for your photo backdrop. Following your outside shots, move into the restored lobby. The baroque interior is offset by a classic marble floor and two corresponding ornate staircases. Pristine mirrors and shimmering chandeliers complete the breathtaking effect of this bygone era. Pose first on the lower steps of one of the staircases, allowing your photographer to capture the intricate molding that defines ceiling and walls. The richness of the banister provides the perfect setting for a staggered pose with the couple looking into one another’s eyes as they stand on separate stairs. Arrange several poses throughout the lobby to fully capitalize on the intricacy of detail that preserves the historic nature of this structure and beautifully highlights the thrill of your engagement.
For the couple who desires locales beyond the immediate Dallas confines, explore the greater metropolitan area and discover the photography jewels Fort Worth can offer for your engagement photo session. You will begin your itinerary with distinctively modern elegance at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Situated in the heart of Fort Worth’s Cultural District just west of downtown, the museum’s structure and ambiance provides a compelling blend of class and artistry for your engagement photo poses.
The stunning glass edifice and arching steel beams offer a beautiful background for your first pose without detracting from the couple as the focal point. Pause outside and stage several shots, making sure to capture the serenity of the still water pools that flank the museum. This spot is ideal for evening as the light at dusk plays well off the water and glass to truly enhance your photos. Move then into the interior lobby and have your photographer take several pictures looking out toward the surrounding water and landscape. Your engagement photos will seem to effortlessly float on water, as the view from the museum gives this impression.
For a refreshing change of pace, move next to the aquatic oasis of the Fort Worth Water Gardens. Located near the Fort Worth Convention Center in the south end of downtown between Houston Street and Commerce Street at West Lancaster, this aquascape is a place of beauty and rejuvenation amidst the highly developed urban setting. Cascading falls offer enticing backgrounds for this phase of your engagement photo session. Have your photographer position you on one of the many alternating landings with water rushing in the background. The Fort Worth Water Gardens offer you the chance to have solitary pictures celebrating the intimacy of your engagement in an otherwise busy, populated city.
Make sure to use the variety and diversity of the landscaping design to your advantage: arrange several poses in different parts of the gardens, capturing peaceful pools and fawning fountains as your backdrops. The meditation pool offers a serene setting for private photography. Stroll down the sunken walkway and let your photographer take several shots as you hold hands. The stillness of this pool, encircled by a ring of trees, provides a stunning backdrop. The central highlight of the Water Gardens is the active pool where staggered terraces allow onlookers to traverse through the pool as water cascades down 38 feet to the resting pool below. Hundreds of lush plant and tree species throughout the Water Gardens make this an ideal oasis for engagement photography that desires a beautiful contrast with the decidedly urban settings throughout the rest of the city. If you have the luxury of photographing at night, the illuminated gardens yield an even more dramatic effect than during day hours. The serenity of the aquascape transforms into a romantic, dreamy setting that heightens your own romance as it is captured in your engagement photography.
