McNay Art Museum Bridal Photography – San Antonio, TX

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.

Pedernales Falls

Pedernales Falls is one of those locations that tugs at me.  The grand nature of the river, the rock formations, the intricacies of the landscape all come together to provide a spectacular experience.  My first thought when visiting locations like this is how exciting it would be to stage a bridal shoot there.  The creative possibilities are limitless.

My recent visit to the park was more of a photographic scouting trip.  My effort was to identify some possible locations for a bridal or engagement shoot that would result in compelling images.  It was an effort in narrowing down the limitless possibilities to a manageable number of likely photography spots.  Overall the trip was good and helped give some initial shape to my ideas.  I left with some good images for planning and staging, but I also need to find the right bride or couple to being the vision to life.

If you are interested in being a part of this project, and feel you would enjoy the creative and planning process, I would like to hear from you.
