My Favorite Locations: Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge

February 27, 2024

As a photographer, I’ve been to countless locations, each with its own unique beauty and vibe. But if I had to pick one favorite, it would be the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. Located near Lawton and Medicine Park, Oklahoma, and just about 3.5 hours from DFW, it’s my go-to location for amazing photoshoots! Here’s what makes it stand out: it’s not just any location—it’s a stunning location filled with diverse landscapes and wildlife. Imagine having a rugged mountain as a backdrop for your photoshoot or a prairie dog curiously peeking out as you snap a candid picture. It’s a place full of wildlife and we might get the chance to capture it together!

The Perfect Backdrop for Your Photoshoot

Let’s talk about the mountains, especially Mount Scott. It’s a beautiful sight that adds a stunning touch to your photos. Whether it’s a beautiful sunrise or amazing sunsets, Mount Scott provides the perfect setting for capturing these beautiful moments! But the mountains are just the beginning. The refuge is a wildlife lover’s paradise. It’s not every day that you get to see Bison roaming freely in their natural habitat. And it’s not just Bison—deer, elk, and a host of other animals call this place home. It adds a whole new level of excitement to the photoshoot, knowing you’re sharing the space with these incredible creatures!

Of course, it’s essential to remember that we’re visitors in their home, and we have to respect their space. So, if you’re thinking of having a photoshoot here, make sure your photographer has the necessary permit. It’s a small step to ensure that you can enjoy this beautiful location while causing minimal disturbance to the wildlife that resides here. The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is perfect for the wild at heart looking for a mountain background. It’s more than just a photoshoot location—it’s an experience, a mini day trip that lets you escape the city’s hustle and bustle and immerse yourself in nature’s beauty. And the best part? You get to take a piece of that beauty back with you in your photographs!
