Get great pictures with complimentary venue access!

On-site access for bridal and wedding pictures are included with wedding rental! There are numerous options for bridal pictures in the home, on the lawns and the surrounding farm. Inside there are multiple winding staircases, which make for fabulous pictures with flowing wedding gowns. Take advantage of a variety of windows and French doors to play with lighting to create that special picture you or your mother will hang on the wall at home. White columns of various sizes are present inside and out that certainly add a simple elegance to pictures of a radiant bride. The heart pine flooring and Flemish bond brick pattern will lend themselves nicely to pictures you will cherish the rest of your life. A bridal shoot prior to the wedding allows you to scout out some great locations for some additional pictures with your wedding party for the day of the wedding as well. Come and explore your options with your photographer. All pictures shoots are by appointment, but are complimentary with the wedding rental.

Elegance and romance abound in our outdoor settings for your wedding photography.

Backgrounds for wedding photography are quite varied and include the Blue Ridge Mountains, the stately Massanutten Peak, vineyards, the big red barn and sheds, old silos, and board fences to list some of the most popular options. We have shrubs in our garden areas that give just the right effect. You may see that a few simple flowers may also add to the beauty of the surroundings when you take time for your photo session. You may also choose to use our hayfield or garden shed as a rural backdrop that strikes just the right image you are looking for. Lighting can obviously change throughout the day so you may want to think ahead about precisely the look you are trying to achieve. We are sure your photographer can help you plan your photo shoot. Remember photo shoots are complimentary with wedding rental. Just call to schedule a visit for wedding photography.
