If you want variety, then this is the place to go! There are so many quaint details at every turn, including old brick buildings, alley ways, restaurants, and even a small park. Conveniently located on the middle of the square is a public restroom for easy access to change clothes! Parking is free. The downside is that it can get very crowded, especially around meal times and weekends.
Adriatica Village has an old world, European feel to it! There are fun buildings everywhere that make great backdrops and a small lake for some waterfront images.
As the name suggests, this Plano park area has lots of wooded areas, a creek, and some stonework as well. The light coming through the trees looks magical! Free public parking.
With stunning views of downtown Dallas, this walking bridge is perfect for photos! Just a quick stroll from Trinity Groves restaurants and shopping area, there are plenty of places around to stop and get a wide variety of backgrounds in one area. This is one of the best outdoor photo spots in Dallas!
The light here is just stunning with all the white reflection! There are great views of the Dallas skyline, lots of modern architecture and within walking distance of Klyde Warren Park. This is another one of the best outdoor photo locations in Dallas!
With lots of acreage, and an old barn and home-turned-museum, Harry Myers is a beautiful local park.
Mandalay Canal does require a permit, but the old world architecture, bridges, trees and canal make for beautiful shots.
From parking garages to little nooks and crannies all around the shopping area, including some water, this is a fun outdoor photo shoot location north of Dallas of 75.
Main Street has a fun vibe, with a mixture of old and new. It’s not near as large as other downtowns, so be aware the options are limited.
With an outdoor California vibe, and bright colors, this is another fun place for outdoor photos in Plano, Texas.
I chose this location for my very own branding photos taken by Leksi Sterrit! She captured this environment beautifully! The lines, light and variety make this a great place – just not on the weekends!
A beautiful outdoor location with water access when the grass is mowed!
This is a fun, urban location for branding photos north of Dallas near a DART station.
This park has the prettiest wildflowers in the spring, and beautiful, tall, flows grass in the fall.
Farmersville is a great downtown for urban type images.
Another fun urban city not too far from Dallas.
Breckenridge Park is huge! There are several entrances and there is access to a stream that you can stand in.
I love this shopping area, but my favorite spot there is the unique movie theater!
This neighborhood has direct access to Lake Lavon in the back. There’s even a little sand to make it look peachy!
