We do a lot of shoots around RVA so we wanted to compile a list of our favorite spots so when you are planning your next session, you have some ideas to turn too!
Right by Randolph Macon, this train station offers a small town feel just outside of RVA!
We looooove shooting here because not only do you have a lake, there's also several trails and plenty of places for shady pictures!
We love Maymont! Maymont does charge a $50 fee for photo shoots and they book up quickly, but they are worth it! Here are some of the shoots we've done at Maymont!
We did some amazing engagement and bridal shots at Dogwood Dell next to Byrd Park! It's a great location if you want to include your pet in your pictures because there is a dog park next door!
While it does cost money to shoot inside the train station, the outside of the station and the canal walk are free!
Even on a day where it was drizzling, we got some amazing shots. This location makes you feel like you've left RVA for the day!
I used to live in Shockoe Bottom and would spend my runs going through Belle Isle! There are so many unique, woodsy, rustic and urban spots all in one place!
We shot a bridal shoot there this weekend and it was gorgous! The park surrounding the tavern is a public location so it's open for anyone. The Tavern itself is gorgeous, but must be rented to shoot inside.
You can't beat these views of RVA! With an urban feel married with a park feel, this park is the best of both worlds!
Add a little bit of classic Richmond to your pictures by doing your session on the hill of the VA State Capitol Building!
With more great city views, this is another great park!
Right off 295, this park is a nice alternative to Downtown RVA!
*BONUS* OUTSIDE OF RVA
Mariners' Museum in Newport News
The Richmond International Airport
We hope this helps the next time you start planning your shoot!
