First post to the Wedding Bee Forum…
Can anyone suggest some cool and trendy places to take wedding photos in the Dallas area? I have run across pics that I adore where brides have taken their photos in hotels like the W, Joule, etc….For any bride out there that have taken pics at a hotel of this nature, can you share your experience and if you had to call to make an appt and was there a fee for using their facility?
As an alternate option to a hotel, does anyone know of other modern/trendy locations/facilities? I would prefer an indoor space since I will be taking my pics in February…Brrrrr!
Thanks for the help!

I loved the Joule too and my photographer called they only allow bridals if you are having your wedding there. You could try the Meyerson Sympony Center.

Look at Jenna Cole’s website
She is Mrs Avocado. She lives in the area and is a photog
She finds awesome places. My recent fav was a place insde…but I can’t remeber exactly the name of the place. It was bridal portraits with a woman in a very old fashioned dress. Maybe posted a month ago. It looked really neat

What are your hobbies? I plan on taking my bridal portraits both downtown on the streets of Dallas for a very urban look as I am a total city girl. However, my fiance and I love boating so I’m planning on taking some very nautical inspired shots on our boat as a surprise to him. 🙂
Start thinking about things you two love and do and go from there. If you’re big movie buffs then head to a local theatre (there are tons in Dallas) and snap some fun photos there. The arboretum (sp?) is always a popular option for bridals as is the Old Red Courthouse.
Good luck! 🙂

Look at Jenna Cole. She did my friend’s wedding and her bridals. She’s very reasonably priced and I would definitely be using her if my FH didn’t have (free) photographer uncles!

The McKinney Cotton Mill is very popular with brides and it is inside. I actually shot there on the day that it snowed so heavily and got fantastic photos! Here are some pictures from there:
Here is another place I haven’t shot at, but that I really want to:
I’m very reasonably priced too if you like my style 😉

This is an old thread but I’d love to bump it up to hear more ideas! A few places I were thinking of were:
- Nylo Hotel
- Belmont Hotel
- Winspear Opera House
Anybody hear anything about these places? Or any other places?
