I’ve created a list of five of my favorite spots in Sioux Falls to take you for your session. If you’re thinking of booking a couples, family, senior or portrait session in the Sioux Falls Area and you’re not really sure where you want to go, this list is made with you in mind! I’ve included a description of each park, which sessions they work best for and I included photos from sessions I’ve shot there. I think this will give you a good idea of what your photos could look like in these awesome locations.
These five locations I’ve chosen have a little bit of everything for everyone. I’ve chosen locations with different types of “themes” – some are more rustic or laid back, some are on the adventurous side and others have an urban look. All of these locations are within city limits or require very little driving.

#5 // The Outdoor Campus at Sertoma Park
This is a great park with a lot of options. Located in the middle part of Sioux Falls, it’s a perfect location if you don’t want to travel far and still want something unique. The Outdoor Campus has tall wheat grass, a pond and shaded trails with full grown trees. This location is great for family photos, engagement and wedding photos.
#4 // Tuthill Park
This park is located in the heart of town, right off of 229 and Cliff Ave. Once you drive through this park, you don’t feel like you’re in the middle of Sioux Falls anymore. I think this park is perfect for adventurous couples who are up for a little hiking. With trails that vary in difficulty, it’s perfect for any experience level.
#3 // Downtown
If you like a more urban background over trees and landscape, the downtown area is a perfect location for you. There are a lot of options between parking ramps, alleyways and cute store fronts along the sidewalks. I love going here for all of the neutral colors and amazing views of the skyline at sunset. This location is perfect for any occasion and I’m always pumped to go here.
#2 // Palisades State Park
If you want a location that’s absolutely unique in our area, Palisades State Park in Garretson, South Dakota is the best location for you. With trails beneath the giant rock formations next to the river, this picturesque park is great for the adventurous souls. Palisades has great views of the sunset in any location, but my favorite spot is in the valley next to the river.
#1 // Good Earth State Park
This state park is so fun. It’s located about 15 minutes southeast of Sioux Falls and it’s so worth the drive. With the rolling hills, mature trees and rock covered trails, this park is photogenic in every corner. This park is perfect for families, seniors and couples.
