Help with indoor places for Bridal Portraits

I am doing the pics this Saturday and it is the only day that we can. There is threat of rain. We are looking for a place indoors that also has a nice outdoor area in case the sun shines.

The bride is very fun loving and likes a little less traditional. She seems pretty contemporary. But at the point, we may take anything.

She was looking at the Crowe Collection of Asian Art but the photography is very limited and no flash. I don't think the lighting will work.

Please help me brainstorm.

Thank you!

Can you take photos at the Dallas Museum of Art? I can't remember. Right across the street from the Crowe Art you mentioned. So two choices close by. And then you will also have the Nasher right there if it is sunny.

Nope. At least no flash. I was there recently. Man, I wish I knew someone who owned a cool big night club or something that I could use before it opened. Or a loft. Man, I am racking my brain. Hard to do with a nonstop talking little girl next to me and taking care of a sick me and ds.

I know the owner of the Candleroom, but I have NO idea what it looks like inside. I could pm you his email address if you want. Also, what about Hotel ZaZa...even the lobby is pretty cool. Also, you could call the Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau. They can send a request out to all members. And, they can just give you ideas. If you go to their website, www.visitdallas.com, you might find some ideas. They used to have a link called "50 Free Things to do in Dallas". I used to work in this industry, in case you are wondering...ha-ha! I'll let you know if I think of something else.

I have seen very nice ones from inside The Meyerson. I have no idea if it has an outdoor area.

My niece and SIL had their's done at the Meyerson and they were BEAUTIFUL. My guess though is that they have a fee and appt schedule. But you might look into that.

But the Gaylord is crazy, expensive for Photographers, isn't it? A little easier to get away with shooting your kids/friends than a bride! lol

Hmmm, I could get you inside an ice-rink, but it's not very pretty!

Good luck! What about a church or a mall? Willowbend is kinda pretty inside...

We got married at North west Bible on loop 12 and the tollway- it has great looking natural rock walls in the sanctuary and some nice landscaping outside.

The Myerson is about $100 for two hours (it might have gone up since I was there last, thought not shooting a bridal)

can't help you otherwise-sorry! brides are definitely not my usual

I love photos done at Hotel ZaZa. A friend just had hers done there and they turned out gorgeous. How about the Melrose? There is an old Methodist church across from the Melrose that I've seen beautiful pictures done.

Great ideas ladies. I don't charge enough to even afford the fee of many places. I would be PAYING to do the photos.

Sorry. I re-read your post and seeing that you want something more contemporary. Hmm.... I seem to remember the Magnolia hotel in Dallas being pretty contemporary. At least the rooms were anyway. Maybe even a really urban spot with lots of grafitti could look cool. But, I guess that wouldn't be a good place to protect against rain. Geez, I dont know. I hope yu find something.
