When I think of amazing locations in El Paso, Scenic Drive is a sure fire choice for great photos:

The problem is, a LOT of people go there & space can be very limited on Scenic Drive. So I decided to ask 3 friends who are professional photographers for their opinions on the best places for photoshoots.

Papa Joe Nunez loves shooting in big open areas such as Union Plaza, UTEP's Centennial Plaza, & Memorial Park.

Miriam Chavez & Anthony Ramirez from Saturnine Studios have a different opinion on some of the best places for holiday photoshoots. In Miriam's own words: "The best holiday photoshoots we've personally have had are the ones taken in clients homes. Nothing beats one own personal space to feel comfortable about being in front of the camera. Plus they get to decorate & add to the shoot with their own personal touches."

Gaby Velasquez also loves to shoot in the national parks in the El Paso area, such as Valley Creek Park.

But the one area that all 3 agree on: the best place for photos in El Paso is downtown:

The historical buildings downtown, the lights that are always on display for the holidays around the San Jacinto Plaza... it's definitely a prime choice for a photoshoot.

There are many more areas in El Paso to explore so wherever you take your family photos, enjoy the sights & most importantly, enjoy the family time.
