Tips for a Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge Family Photo Session

Nestled amidst the vibrant cityscape of Dallas, the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge stands as an iconic landmark, offering a stunning backdrop for family portraits. With its sleek architecture and panoramic views, capturing your family portraits against this backdrop is an opportunity not to be missed. Let’s dive into some tips to help you create unforgettable family portraits at the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge.

Timing is Key: For the best lighting conditions and fewer crowds, aim to schedule your photo session during the golden hour shortly after sunrise. Yes, it is EARLY. Yes, you will be getting ready in the dark. However, the soft warm light during sunrise adds a magical touch to your images and reduces harsh shadows, creating a flattering glow. Photographing the bridge at sunset means you would be facing the sun and squinty photos are generally not the best! 

It’s essential to prioritize safety. Before we start, I recommend locking up any valuables in your car and keeping your belongings secure. This ensures peace of mind so we can focus on creating beautiful memories without any worries. Let’s make sure our time together is not only enjoyable but also safe and secure.

To see the bridge best, we will use the adjacent pedestrian bridge which will allow us a beautiful backdrop of downtown Dallas too. Plus there is plenty of space for kids to move, run and play!

Show up ready to have fun, love on your people and relax!
