Cotton Mill

The Cotton Mill in McKinney is a great place to have your portraits done if you want a raw, abandoned warehouse look.  This place is also a wedding venue with a finished room, a great courtyard area, and air conditioning in one building.  The main building doesn’t have heat or AC (so it still gets very hot in the summer, despite being “indoors”).  The main building has a couple large, open rooms with great windows, a control room that doesn’t have floors, and a great outside area with crumbling walls.  Because some of the areas are dangerous, the Cotton Mill requires everyone that steps foot inside the building to sign a waiver, which they make available on their website.

**Bridal clients: one thing to keep in mind is that there is soot everywhere and it will stain your dress!!!  You MUST bring a sheet with you, or expect to spend over $300 getting your dress cleaned (this happened to one of my clients).
