Our Dallas Photography Studio

Opening in Summer 2024

We are excited to announce the opening of our new state-of-the-art photography space designed to serve the vibrant community of Dallas, Texas. Located at 8430 West University Drive #209, McKinney, TX, 75071, on the border of Frisco and Prosper, our studio is perfectly positioned in the heart of the country, making it easily accessible for clients across the region.

The story of our Dallas studio begins with a vision shared by my wife Jen and me. We wanted a centrally located studio to make our travels more accessible and reach out to Texas's fantastic people. We decided that we wanted to make Texas home. In 2024, we brought this vision to life by constructing our second studio location. This studio specializes in weddings and portrait sessions, including maternity, high school seniors, pets, and family portraits.

At Michael Anthony Photography, we are dedicated to capturing your most cherished moments with professionalism and artistry. Our Dallas studio offers a professional and welcoming atmosphere where creativity thrives and clients feel at home.
