High School Senior Portrait Locations

 

 

You’ve scheduled your senior photoshoot, or maybe you are thinking about scheduling it, but aren’t sure where to begin? When you book your senior session with me, I send you a questionnaire to get more information about you and your style. In my questionnaire I ask what type of locations you might want to use and most seniors say they don’t know. I get it, planning everything for your senior year gets overwhelming, and that’s why I’m here to help! I want your session with me run as smoothly as possible for you and your parents. I’ve put together a few examples of urban Oklahoma City locations below.

Automobile Alley

About half of my OKC high school seniors want to use Automobile Alley for one of their locations. I mean, it is kinda cool to get professional photos taken in one of you and your friends favorite selfie spot, right? There is a TON to offer in Automobile Alley. Seriously, a ton! I love Coffee Slingers! It is great for coffee shop photos, and the employees are always super nice. There are graffiti walls, solid walls, painted brick, rooftops, the list goes on. And, when we are done, you can grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants in the area.

The Plaza District

Ah, the Plaza District. Such a fun and sometimes forgotten about place to take senior photos. This place has so much to offer! There is a super cute vintage and consignment store called Dig It. They have a cute little area with old records and they didn’t mind us using the location for photos. There is Roxy’s Ice Cream and, of course, Empire Slice House. Yum! And, let’s not forget about the beautiful graffiti walls!

The Paseo District

A choice that can never go wrong is the Paseo District. This place is really cool with the unique, bright walls, white walls, and cute little shops. If you love modern or bright colors, this is the place to go. You can achieve many different styles and looks in this area.

Downtown OKC & Bricktown

Downtown OKC and bricktown have several cool locations, too. The Devon Tower is a poplar location and just across the street is the Myriad Gardens, which I will discuss in another blog. Your location could be in the outskirts of Bricktown at a one of my favorite coffee shops, All About Cha. The whole area around the coffee house has so many wonderful textures for photos. Want to get photos around the bricktown canal? We can do that, too!
