St. Louis, Missouri - The Best Locations for Your Next Session

Updated: Dec 10, 2022

The most common question I am always asked is... "Where do you recommend we take our pictures at?" I wanted to make a blog post that also showcases some of my favorite spots in St. Louis MO to take your photos at... with pictures of real clients!

1. Forest Park - St. Louis, MO

Forest Park has always been my VERY favorite location in St. Louis, MO. Since I was a little kid, I loved going to the zoo, visiting the art museum, seeing shows at The Muny and walking along the trails of the gigantic and beautiful park. I even love Forest Park so much that I told my husband we NEEDED to get married there! We had our ceremony at the Jewel Box in July of 2017. Did you know that Forest Park is bigger than Central Park in New York City? There are dozens of great location options in this one area.

2. Tower Grove Park - St. Louis, MO

Tower Grove Park is a beautiful garden style city park and is adjacent to the Missouri Botanical Gardens. It is beautiful at all times of year with the architecture and stone buildings, and during the blooming months, there are endless colorful foliage to really make your backgrounds pop.

3. Lafayette Park - St. Louis, MO

I think this is one of the coolest areas in St. Louis, and one day, I would LOVE to own my own Victorian styled townhome across the street from this park. The architecture of the buildings around the park are absolutely incredible and they make me feel like I'm in downtown San Francisco. There is plenty of gorgeous open space, gardens with colorful flowers, a beautiful pond with ducks and swans, and a gorgeous vintage black bridge.

4. Faust Park - Chesterfield, MO

I think Faust Park can be sometimes underrated since most people think of it just having a playground, but it truly has so many great backgrounds to offer. The exterior of the Butterfly House is a gorgeous glass greenhouse, and there are two other parts of the park that I especially love: Thornhill Estates (a restored Federal home of a former Governer) + Habitat Trail (a quiet open area with a big white and red barn) near the Community Music School.

5. Queeny Park - Ballwin, MO
