Laguna Gloria

The Laguna Gloria is a 1916 Italianate-style villa on the shores of Lake Austin in Austin, Texas. In the wedding industry, it’s known as one of the best spaces for wedding and engagement photos in the city! I actually held Valentine’s mini sessions here and the photos came out absolutely stunning! Renting out a time to shoot at the Laguna Gloria costs $100 per hour.

Woodbine Mansion

Woodbine Mansion is a gorgeous venue that is surrounded by a canopy of Elm, Pecan, and Magnolia trees. It was built in 1900 and in 1973 became an official historic landmark. I’m dying to shoot one of my couples at this venue! It’s such a romantic space! If you think this is THE venue for your engagement session, it costs $250 for up to two hours of shooting time.

The Allan House

The Allan House is a Victorian-style mansion that was built in 1833 and I’m obsessed! The grounds are covered in Texas blossoms and large oak trees. It’s an incredible place for engagement photos, weddings, or other events! This is another location on my bucket list where I’d LOVE to shoot one of my couples! Shooting your engagement photos at the Allan House will cost $200 for up to two hours of shooting time. Photo sessions get use of the entire property including the indoor parlors, wrapping verandas and balconies, and lush outdoor courtyard spaces.
