Congratulations on your engagement! Before the fun of planning the main show gets fully underway, don’t forget to take time to mark this life-changing occasion with some fun and romantic engagement pictures.
If you live in Houston, you’ll be happy to know that there are dozens of incredible places for your Houston engagement pictures. Of course, you can always choose a spot with personal meaning to you and your significant other—your apartment, the diner where you shared your first meal, the park where you two meet to jog every morning. But if you are looking for a uniquely local spot for your Houston engagement pictures—especially if you are both loyal Houstonians with plans for a Houston wedding—it makes sense to feature one of the city’s great landmarks in your shoot.
1. Hermann Park
Convenient for many, and a spot well-loved for relaxation and fun, Hermann Park
is an ideal contender for a Houston Engagement Ring photo shoot. Pack a picnic, a couple champagne flutes, and of course the fizz itself, and come and take your pick of Hermann locations.
2. Houston Arboretum and Nature Center
If your relationship finds its home in nature, then you won’t go wrong by heading to the Arboretum
for your photo shoot. Make sure you’ve got a photographer on hand who is prepared to wander the trails with you and you’ll find your choice of perfect spots amongst streams, ponds and lush vegetation.
3. Minute Maid Park and NRG Stadium
Your favorite professional sports venue may be the logical choice for your engagement photoshoot. Bedazzle other supporters with your engagement ring and dress in your team jersey as you head down to Minute Maid Park or NRG Stadium for a fun, sporty day out.
4. Houston Discovery Green
Houston’s Discovery Green
offers an easily accessible downtown opportunity for a photoshoot. The Green opened in 2008 and is located on Avenida de las Americas across from the George R. Brown Convention Center. The entire Green offers plenty of opportunities to take pictures and if your engagement coincides with the winter season, then take to the ice and get some ice-skating couple shots.
5. Kemah Boardwalk
If you’re looking for a retro feel whilst channeling your big kid spirit, then Kemah Boardwalk
will make for a perfect engagement photoshoot for you and your spouse to be. The ocean backdrop provides ample opportunity for more relaxed shots, and there is a lovely hidden gazebo nestled in a small landscaped area with a gentle fountain just on the coastal edge of the main area.
6. Rice University
If it was your student days that saw you fall in love, then Rice University will likely hold particular meaning for you. There is a beauty and charm to Rice University campus and you are spoilt for choice with the monuments and college architecture. There is a multitude of walking paths coming out from the quad, so take off your student hat and look at Rice University in a new light.
7. Houston Space Center
If you love your other half to the moon and back, then what better way to demonstrate this than an engagement ring photoshoot with space as a theme. Houston is rightly proud of its role in America’s space program, and the Space Center
means you can get up close and personal with many artefacts that will make an amazing backdrop. Rocket Park offers something like nowhere else on earth, so get some couple pictures with these giants of history behind you.
Make a daytrip of your engagement photoshoot and head on down to Galveston
for the day. As well as the choice of 32 miles of beaches, the retro pleasure pier and the Victorian architecture make a truly romantic destination. Hang around as the sun sets and your pictures will be brought to life with some fine Texan sunsets where your sun-kissed skin will reflect your love for one another.
9. Houston Rodeo
And finally, this wouldn’t be a true reflection of Houston life if we didn’t remind you of the Houston Rodeo. If timing works, then you don’t get much more authentically Texan than donning your hats and boots for fun and unique Houston engagement pictures.
10. Houston Hobby Airport
If long distance has been the name of the game for your relationship, then you may like engagement pictures with a Sky’s The Limit feel. Head out of Houston to the Hobby Airport where the staff are friendly and welcoming, making a photoshoot a breeze. Try and get your engagement ring dazzling under bright sunlight from the large windows of the terminal, or head to the 1940’s Air Terminal Museum with its distinctive art-deco terminal and tower.
