Strouse Photo Tip #28: 11 Locations for Photo Shoots in RVA



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!

ASHLAND TRAIN STATION

Right by Randolph Macon, this train station offers a small town feel just outside of RVA!

LAKE LOTHIAN in MIDLOTHIAN

We looooove shooting here because not only do you have a lake, there's also several trails and plenty of places for shady pictures!

Baby B | 7 Month Portraits

Hanna | Bridal Portraits


MAYMONT

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!

- Kristen & Diego | Engagement


DOGWOOD DELL

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!

MAIN STREET TRAIN STATION

+ CANAL WALK

While it does cost money to shoot inside the train station, the outside of the station and the canal walk are free!

- Rachel Bracken | Senior Portraits


- Haley | Bridal Portraits


SUNDAY PARK

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!

- Jordan & Corey | Engagement Portraits


BELLE ISLE (& SURROUNDING AREAS)

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!

- Greta + Thomas | Engagement


WALKERTON TAVERN

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.

Libby Hill Park

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!

Rebecca & Will | Engagement


VA State Capitol

Add a little bit of classic Richmond to your pictures by doing your session on the hill of the VA State Capitol Building!

Kaitlyn & Jon Engagement


Jefferson Park

With more great city views, this is another great park!

Crump Park

Right off 295, this park is a nice alternative to Downtown RVA!

*BONUS* OUTSIDE OF RVA

We've enjoyed shooting at the Barboursville Vineyard, Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, the Airport and the Mariners' Museum in Newport News!
