For the perfect group photo before the dance, a park never fails. Places like Laumeier Sculpture Park, Kirkwood Park and Des Peres Park are great local locations. Make sure to check the sunset time, so you can get that golden hour glow, and avoid a bunch of photos in the dark. If you want a more creative background, the City Museum, Forest Park — especially Art Hill — or Lafayette Square are perfect. The drive is a little longer, but the background stands out from all the other photos that will soon be flooding your Instagram feed.
