I mean, how could we not start this post with Main Street? Every year around this time Main Street is packed with high schoolers, parents, and grandparents looking to get that perfect prom photos. And why wouldn’t it be?! Main Street is seriously the cutest place and has so many different options for photo backdrops. You can take pictures in Frontier Park, at the Lewis and Clark Boat House, or walking down the cobblestone street. You can even take a few artsy photos in Picasso’s Coffee House or some retro-inspired photos in Little O’s Soda Shop. The possibilities are endless!
Quail ridge park
If you’re looking for a simple backdrop full of the beauty of nature, Quail Ridge Park is the place to go. Quail Ridge is a 250 acre park in Wentzville, Missouri right off of Highway 70. You can take photos along the beautiful pastures or wooded hillsides. If you want to have a little fun with your photos… bring a frisbee or horseshoes to play frisbee golf or horse shoes while you’re getting your pictures taken!
