Houston engagement photography sessions in winter can be the hardest to find great locations when so many plants are dormant in the colder weather. But this is also when so many couples are getting engaged in Houston and choose to have their engagement session! Many Houston locations are green almost all year, except December, January, and February when they look almost dead — but guess what is green in winter? Oak trees! I love finding a light filled spot, with just a touch of color, and taking full advantage.
For a comparison – here is another winter session – still beautiful, but there is virtually no green happening. https://rorphoto.com/2021/02/11/engagement-photography-session-in-the-woodlands/(opens in a new tab)
Isn’t the light coming through these Live Oak trees so dreamy?! and with the Spanish moss trailing down…..it really is the perfect southern backdrop for any Houston engagement photography session.

Alex and Jake live by the park and spend lots of time walking it, so it was very fitting for them to have their session there, and I had so much fun chatting with them while they showed me all of their favorite spots! If there is a location that has some significance to a couple, I always recommend choosing that location for a Houston engagement session.
That rainbow lens flare is REAL. and I’m obsessed. Green wall behind them is also real, and I love how it photographs like watercolor!
Just can’t beat the sun coming through these trees! This is one of my favorite shots, probably ever.
