If you are looking for the perfect photo location for your engagement photos in Dallas look no further. White Rock Lake, one of the city’s most beloved landmarks, offers incredible vistas and a great variety of beautiful backdrops. Read on to find out more about White Rock Lake and taking your engagement photos at this beautiful location.

About White Rock Lake

Located in the east Dallas community and only minutes from downtown, White Rock Lake covers over 1254 acres with excellent fishing, sailing and rowing facilities. The scenic park also offers over 9 miles of running, biking and walking trails. 

Originally created by the city in 1910/11 as a reservoir in response to water shortage and drought, White Rock Lake is nowadays the perfect spot for outdoor activities and you guessed it… romantic photoshoots!

Engagement Photo Shoots at White Rock Lake

White Rock Lake is one of my favorite places to shoot engagement sessions in Dallas. There is a great variety of beautiful backdrops from stunning lake views, charming docks, tree lines and a bridge.

On top of that the park also has several historic buildings like the Bath House Cultural Center plus the Dallas Arboretum if you feel the need for even more variety.

Best time for White Rock Lake Engagement Photos

At White Rock Lake all seasons are beautiful. Spring and summer with fluffy white flower fields, autumn leaf colors during fall and winter with a more tranquil and almost nostalgic setting.

White Rock Lake’s stunning water views are lovely all year round.

Insider Tip: White Rock Lake engagement photos during golden hour (= within the hour after sunrise or the hour before sunset) is a great time for capturing those extra dreamy photos. The golden and glowing light will help to give your images an even more romantic feel.
