Top 10 Best Places in OKC to take Engagement Pictures

 

As a photographer, we sometimes treat our picture locations as trade secrets. I was like this until recently. A friend asked me a location and I hesitated to respond. You take way better pictures than me, I can't always hire you but it would be cool to take some fun pictures at that location. Somehow I thought that the locations somehow made me a better photographer. The truth is, if you are going to hire a photographer, you will hire them for more than just knowledge of locations. I am an open book now and I am so happy to share my work & locations with you. At least you see my work. So let's get started with my top spots.

 

Automobille Alley | The Womb of Oklahoma

I love this place because it has tones of color and some cool looking graffiti.  Make sure you walk around the whole building and beyond. You have everything you will want. You will also see a nice pink trailer that makes for a nice backdrop. Watch out for the railroad tracks, they are live and used often. It is also illegal to walk on live tracks so please don't ask your photographer to take pictures on them.

FARMERS MARKET DISTRICT | Farmer Public Market

You will find a good skyline of the city here as well as some historic backdrops. You can also find a touch of color that will blend in nicely with your surroundings. I would expect to see lots of black and white pictures here. Yay!

Bricktown | Myriad Botanical Gardens

This place has so much to offer. This is OKCs Central Park. You have nature, architecture, tall grass, lights, city scapes, waterfalls, flowers for days, and I can go on and on. If you have not been, plan a trip because its worth it. The pictures should speak for themselves.

Oklahoma Boathouse District

This is a very modern location with neon lights, a park next door, and amazing architecture. There is a small park next to the Chesapeake Boathouse and is definitely worth checking out. This place is iconic and a top list for wedding venues.

Lake Hefner Lighthouse

Something to be said about lighthouse in general. They are simple, elegant, and romantic. Take a stroll, hold hands, and wait for sunset. It will be worth it.

Bricktown Rooftops | Santa Fe Parking Garage | Bricktown Parking Garage | Broadway-Kerr Parking

You just can't beat the views atop some of the parking garages in OKC. I will also say 123 parking is also a good spot if you want a wide view of the city but I like the central location of the once I have provided.

O Bar at Ambassador Hotel 

Take the top floor at the ambassador hotel to the O bar. It good edict to buy a drink or some food if you wish to take pictures, as it is a business. Take a selfie and post it on Instagram!

Bricktown Oklahoma City 

Just walk around Bricktown and Automobile Alley and you will see a picture perfect spot at ever corner. The city looks so different in the winter vs spring. Just look at this amazing backdrop with tons of roots against a building near Santa Fe Parking Garage. Sometimes you can just use the cross walk, turn, kiss, and bamb. Perfect picture. Walk over to a parking lot and start dancing. You can just stroll down the street and find every kind of brick you can imagine. I just love the texture.
