The Mcnay Art Museum has long been a favorite destination of wedding photographers and brides around San Antonio. The well kept landscape and wonderful architecture makes for a wonderful backdrop. Shooting on the grounds is inexpensive and easy. A small $20 grounds fee is collected by security, preventing the need to fill out paperwork or obtain a permit beforehand.
The grounds can get a bit crowded depending on the time of day and weather, so some patience and planning is recommended. It is not uncommon to find a number of photographers as well as museum goers wandering about taking in the art. There are the typical photo spots, but there are plenty of areas for those with a creative eye. Make sure to check the hours the grounds are open, which vary from the museum itself, if you are planning a visit.
