Frisco, Texas, a suburb on the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, is one of the fastest-growing towns in Texas. They’re a Tree City USA designated by The National Arbor Day Foundation and have a plethora of employment, education, and art resources.
Frisco, it seems, has made themselves the place for artists in Texas, with more than 70 public art installations throughout the city. Modern, eclectic, classic, they have art styles for everyone. Also, several venues stand out for ideal photography spots.
Public Art Installations
They’re free. They’re cool. And you can choose one or 70. Because they’re everywhere!
Mandalas, bison, clouds, dreamy skyscapes. If you have a theme, there’s an art installation that will match. If you have no idea what to do in your photos, there’s an art installation that will inspire you. Find the complete list here.
National Videogame Museum
You read that right. A museum dedicated to video games! I don’t know about you, but there couldn’t be a much cooler backdrop for a professional photography session than Mario and Pac-Man. Not many people could say the world’s biggest Pong game was the centerpiece of their engagement pictures, and I don’t know of a kid alive that wouldn’t grin for every photo taken if video games surrounded them.
Contact the National Videogame Museum for hours and availability. And have fun!
Open spaces, an amphitheater and nature trails are some of the backdrops you may want to scope out at Frisco Commons. There are 63 acres of beauty to explore, which have won design awards, family-friendly awards, and the Park Design Excellence Award by the Texas Recreation and Park Society.
Please note the picnic areas are not for rent, they are free to the public at large, and the park is large enough to give you several choices.
Designed to be a destination location, The Vine hosts weddings, parties, and photo sessions. Lush greenery, patios, and firepits are the standard, and the staff is accommodating for most anything you may need. Reservations are required.
Frisco Heritage Center
If you want a taste of the wild west, Frisco Heritage Center is where you’ll want to head. Wagon trains, 1800s homes, and antiques, even a general store are all at your disposal. For photos with a simple theme, choose the historic homes, blacksmith shop, or schoolhouse.
Contact the visitor’s center for hours and availability.
Texas Sculpture Garden & Hall Park
Frisco has created a lovely space for visitors, and it just so happens to be a beautiful space for photo sessions, too. The Texas Sculpture Garden offers winding trails, lush landscaping, fountains and lakes, and backdrops of modern and classic art pieces intertwined with nature.
The garden is designed to educate and inspire and provides many photo ops amid the artistic beauty.
