OOOOOOOOOOOOklahoma (I couldn’t resist...and sorry for getting that song stuck in your head for the next ten days)…
You guys, Oklahoma is the BEST. I was born and raised here, but I’ve been around the country and even the world and I will boldly protest that out of everywhere Oklahoma has my heart. It’s a land of sweet grasses, rolling hills, rocky mountainscapes, crisp air, and some of the craziest weather I have ever seen. And, as a photographer, I can confidently say that Oklahoma, and specifically Oklahoma City, is one of the BEST location choices for your engagement photos.
If you’re sporting some shiny new bling and thinking about affordable engagement photos, I want to share with you the best engagement photo locations in Oklahoma City so you can have the pictures of your dreams.
Here we go!
Stars and Stripes Park
3701 S Lake Hefner Dr Oklahoma City, OK 73116
One of the more notable parks in Oklahoma City, Stars and Stripes Park is the perfect location to take a variety of fun and scenic engagement photos. Sit on the swings with your love or stand atop the red and white playground tower for a few pictures that will bring out the kid in you. Or, take a walk along Lake Hefner and venture out to the trails for a few romantic shots.
Will Rogers Park
3400 NW 36th St Oklahoma City, OK 73112
Home to a formal rose garden, arboretum, and countless winding walkways Will Rogers Park is a B-E-Autiful location in Oklahoma City for your engagement photos. From the beautiful glass conservatory building to the scenic flower fields, you can take pictures anywhere in the park. Open all year long, Will Rogers Park looks just as stunning in the middle of winter as it does on the first of July.
E.K. Gaylord Parking Garage
101 N E.K. Gaylord (downtown Oklahoma City)
If you’re looking for an ultra-urban vibe in the middle of Oklahoma City, the E.K. Gaylord Parking Garage is the engagement photo location for you. Venture up to the top to experience intense city views, beautiful sunlight, and plenty of space to capture pictures you will be proud to hang on your wall.
301 W Reno Ave Oklahoma City, OK 73102
If lush green space and stunning natural light are what you are looking for, then the Myriad Gardens is the photo-op spot for you! Home to the crystal bridge tropical conservatory, Myriad Gardens has great indoor and outdoor locations to capture your memories in any season!
Lake Hefner Lighthouse
9401 N Lake Hefner Dr Oklahoma City, OK 73120
(address is for a Louie’s restaurant that’s just east of the lighthouse and has a parking lot)
This one is like pulling a magic trick out of a black hat! No one, I mean no one expects to find a stunning lighthouse putting off some serious East Coast vibes in Oklahoma City. Yet, here it is! The Lake Hefner Lighthouse looks like something you might find in Nantucket, and creates pictures that were made for the movies!
Bonus: the lighthouse is also a GREAT
location to propose!
200 S Oklahoma Ave Oklahoma City, OK
(this address is for a Starbucks in the heart of bricktown that has free parking)
One of my favorite places to shoot, Bricktown in Oklahoma City offers industrial chic vibes and a variety of options for taking the best engagement pictures. Sit down at a cafe, walk along the canal, or lean into each other against some seriously cool brick walls. In Bricktown, it’s ALL good.
Address will vary, lol!
That’s right, I just invited myself over because if you are looking for great, intimate engagement photos you will cherish forever-your home is the place to be! It’s so fun to get couples cozied up on their couch or front porch and just capture life in their everyday environment. Photos taken of a couple comfortable in their own home just ooze love right out of them and are a great way to capture a special moment and a special place.
If you are looking to take engagement photos in Oklahoma City, be sure to check out these locations. And, if you need a photographer to help you out-send me an email! I’d love to get to know you...and maybe even come over for pictures and some dinner!
