Photo Shoot Locations

Below are some of my most popular photo shoot locations with links to shoots done at those locations. My nature ones are first and most recommended, however, we can do any kind of location you’d like. I’m always up for new adventures!

Basic Session Options: Veteran’s Oasis (similar to Riparian), Orange Grove, Downtown Chandler, Urban/Nature Mix, Arizona Rustic Farm, Desert Wash – Custom Location available for additional fee

Arizona Forest

A client favorite and my most popular location. A national park with lots of great wild nature and trees. Tonto pass ($8/car) needed.

Riparian Preserve

This is my other favorite nature place to take photos. Trees, foliage, paths, water areas, and sometimes grass fields.  Some structures like benches and walls.


Arizona Rustic Farm

A super unique location only available to Jenna Bishop Photography clients! Adorable farmhouse with large trees, grass, beautiful wood wall, rustic fences and backgrounds, and even a tire swing! Farmhouse, meets rustic, meets vintage, all in Gilbert, Arizona!


Urban/Nature Mix

An awesome option of both urban architecture and tons of nature. Super versatile with lots of room and background options. Great for every type of shoot.

Desert Landscape

Traditional desert landscape views with saguaro and mountains.

Desert Botanical Gardens

The Gardens offers beautiful nature and unique architecture and structures (bridges, benches, rocks, walls, etc.). Regular admission is $22/adult $10/child, but with my membership, I cover both my admission and one adult admission as well as get discounted adult and children’s tickets.

Arizona River

Neat views of the mountains and river. Can go in the water as well for some unique looks. Best scheduled on weekdays, as weekends get busy with other park users. Tonto pass ($8/car) needed.

Groomed Nature

Groomed foliage and some architecture. Great place for greenery all year round.
