Las Vegas has a wide variety of locations that are amazing for engagement photos. Below are my favorite three that offer incredible views and stunning landscapes. Whether you want an open desert session or a garden session… we got you covered! Here’s our list for the 4 best locations for engagement photos in Las Vegas.
Springs Preserve is considered the birthplace of Las Vegas. There is a museum that outlines the history of Las Vegas, and of course beautiful desert landscape gardens. The gardens are perfect for engagement photos because they offer both wide open desert scenery as well as intimate garden vibes. For a lot of my couples, Springs Preserve is a great place to do engagement photos as well as have your wedding there. The gardens at springs preserve is an intimate wedding venue where are you can capture all of the beauty that you did in your engagement photos as well. They even have a butterfly conservatory you could have it at! Plus, you’ll be really familiar with the area so you’ll know exactly what you want. This is a great location for my whimsical and boho brides that want to incorporate nature into every aspect of their engagement and wedding photos.
Red Springs in Red Rock Canyon is one of the prettiest hidden gems in the canyon. Most people do the circle in Red Rock Canyon and do their photos there. We love shooting there too, but Red Springs has a lot more to offer and is generally very quiet and doesn’t have the influx of tourists like the main part of the canyon. Your photos will look very different depending on the time of year that you do your engagement photos at Red Springs. During the winter time, all of the leaves fall off the trees and you get a lot of gray with the red mountains in the background. If you go any other season you will get lush greenery hidden away in the middle of the desert. It is very accessible and does not require any hiking, which is great for the beautiful brides to be that wear heels to their engagement sessions.
The El Dorado Dry Lake Bed is a perfect spot for engagement photos. If you’re craving an unaltered spot with mountain views… This is your place. The El Dorado dry lake bed is special to me for a couple of reasons. There is nothing quite like the dry cracked earth with beautiful desert light filtering through the mountains, for one. Whether you live in Las Vegas or you are simply visiting and want some unique engagement photos… Definitely consider the Dry Lake Bed. There isn’t quite anywhere like it on earth.
This deserves a spot here! It is full of lush greenery, and a vibe that doesn’t even feel like Vegas. It’s a seriously magical place with a pond in the middle and is ready for exploration. If you are craving greenery and tall trees — this might be the spot for you. See more from this engagement session at Floyd Lamb Park.
We hope you enjoyed this list of the best places to do engagement photos in Vegas… We wouldn’t say that one is better than the others it just comes down to preference and what your vision for your engagement photos are. Pick something that mean something to you and really speaks to you and does justice to your love. We can’t wait to hear from you!
