If you're looking for something unique + full of fall color, Twickenham Square is the place to be! Even if it's not fall, you can soak up the downtown neighborhood feels. With many historic homes from the 1800's, this isn't a modern day neighborhood + while taking photos in someone's neighborhood might seem like a weird thing to do - it's quite popular + makes for some beautiful photos!

Indian Creek Greenway is a great spot if you love the outdoors, plan to bring your dog or think you might want to stick your toes in the creek! I love this spot because I used to visit frequently with my family when I was a kid. It's a great location for a warm summer day to play in the water or relax in the shade. You can get really creative with this location + it's a lot of fun for a couple's session!

There aren't many indoor locations I love more than shooting inside Lowe Mill! This historic textile mill is now a center for the Arts in Huntsville + houses over 200 artists to produce + display their work. It's such a unique gem + absolutely stunning for a photoshoot! The large windows on the second floor of the North Building are a treasure for any session. But, be sure to check their open times + dates on their website.

Who knew your own home could be the perfect location for your photoshoot?! Sometimes the best spot for you + your partner is cuddled up on the couch together with the cat or baking a delicious treat in the kitchen! Keep in mind that LOTS of light is necessary for your photos. If your home is dark or doesn't get bright light during the day, I might consider another location OR look into renting an airbnb if you really want that

in-home feel!

Fee: Free (obviously ☺)

Probably one of my most random locations - this field is located right next to a Raceway gas station in Brownsboro, Alabama... Yeah, you read that right. But, you would never know it by the photos! This large field is backed by a beautiful mountain + not to far from Downtown Huntsville.
