The Best Places for Outdoor Photos In and Around Plano

  • Haggard Park: This has a gazebo, a bridge, and a pond. It’s beautiful and right next down downtown Plano so you can get some pretty nature shots and then cross over and get some urban shots in downtown Plano!
  • Arbor Hills Nature Preserve: Known for its beautiful scenery, hills, and nature- you might have to walk the trails a little to find some pretty backgrounds but this makes for some breathtaking photos!
  • Prairie Creek Waterfall (Richardson): 2580 Prairie Creek Dr W, Richardson, TX 75080, as suggested by Brianna Lewis Photography.
  • Babes Chicken (Frisco): These make for some excellent photos with more of a country feel right outside of Babes in the heart of downtown Frisco. A plus is that you can eat at Babe’s when you are done! FYI: It’s best to go early on a Sat or Sunday morning!
  • Downtown McKinney: Perfect for those urban photos. So many great places to eat up there afterward.

  • Prairie Creek (Richardson)   This can be hard to find but they have a beautiful waterfall! Yes, a waterfall. I’ve never been able to find it myself but I’ve seen pictures. Maybe you will have better luck 🙂
  • Watters Creek (Allen) I’ve taken photos here several times early in the mornings and they turn out great. Go by the horses by Mi Cocina and the pond/rocks. Very pretty.
