San Antonio Photography Locations

A big part of your photo session is the location, although it’s not going to make or break your photos. Really, any place outside with trees and nature will make for a great backdrop for you and your family. The most important part is YOU!

As you look through these locations, understand that every photo session is different and unique. If you have another location in mind, let me know! I love to explore new places.

Photography Locations in San Antonio

Brackenridge Park, 3700 N St. Mary’s St.

Brackenridge Park is great because it’s central and has beautiful trees and slight variety. If you want a place with tall trees, this is a great place, and in the winter, the leaves turn yellow and orange. There are a few bridges as well and benches.

Cibalo Nature Center, 140 City Park Rd, Boerne, TX

Although a bit of a drive for San Antonians, Cibalo Nature Center is stunning. A beautiful creek runs through the park with huge trees that have large trunks. The park also has tall, wispy grass, and all of it is lovely at sunset.

Denman Estate Park is another great location with trees, and also offers a variety of other backdrops such as a bridge, ranch-like fence, and lake.

Downtown San Antonio

Our city is beautiful and there are so many great places to shoot downtown. This is definitely a location with variety, from trees to buildings to textured walls/doors, and bridges. If you’re looking for a neutral-type setting that’s not rustic, downtown is a great place to explore.

Market Square, 514 W Commerce St

Another great spot in our beautiful city is Market Square. If you want color, this is the place to go. If you don’t mind people all around, it has some amazing, hidden spots.

Gruene, Texas

Gruene is a great little town near San Antonio if you’re looking for a rustic location. It has a lot of cute barns and rusty buildings that make for great backdrops. The landscape and nearby river makes for a great location with variety.

Phil Hardberger Park, 13203 Blanco Rd, San Antonio, TX 78216

Phil Hardberger Park is a gem in San Antonio. It definitely gives me Cibalo Nature Center vibes with a hidden tall grass field. It’s a place with lots of trees as well, a cool bridge, and a building that can be used as a backdrop as well. If you love the tall grass at Cibalo, but don’t want to drive to Boerne, I highly recommend this park.

Japanese Tea Gardens, 3875 N St Mary’s St

The Japanese Tea Gardens is a beautiful location with lots of beautiful colors and plants. Although the location itself is somewhat small, there is a lot of variety, including a bridge, many colors from the flowers and plants, a waterfall, and trails.

Landa Library, 233 Bushnell Ave

Landa Library is a little, quaint place with a beautiful arched building with a few hidden nooks. This location is great for graduation photos and great for mini sessions because it’s small and you don’t have to walk a lot.

Pearl Brewery, 303 Pearl Pkwy #300

The Pearl Brewery is also in central San Antonio and has more of an urban feel. It’s has a lot of variety, and there’s often a lot of people walking around, if you don’t mind.

Nearby, you can go down to the San Antonio River, where there’s beautiful spots with waterfalls.

The University of the Incarnate Word, 4301 Broadway St

UIW is a great location during the holidays because of the Christmas lighting and beautiful red bridge. There is also great trees around the area, but it is slightly limited on variety. Nevertheless, it’s a beautiful place to have some photos taken.
