Engagement Shoot Locations in Central Virginia

Love is in the air! (Okay, maybe it’s pollen in the air, but still…) Thinking about our newly engaged couples gives us all the feels (and has us dreaming about engagement shoots). If you’re looking for the perfect shoot location in Central Virginia, look no further. We have a list for you.

Paid Locations:

Sierra Vista

I mean, does it get any better than Sierra Vista? Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains you just can’t go wrong.

Glencliff Manor

Glencliff Manor is honestly one of our favorite locations in all of Central Virginia. There is just something magical about this property.

Vaughan House Greenhouse

            Who doesn’t adore a greenhouse full of blossoming flowers to celebrate blossoming love? We are in love with the Vaughan House Greenhouse and know you will be too. The greenhouse rents for $150 for one hour.

Some other paid locations to check out:

Free Options:

Thunder Ridge

Let the majesty of the Blue Ridge Mountains be your backdrop. Thunder Ridge makes for a gorgeous shoot location.

Ravens Roost

If you can’t tell, we love the Blue Ridge Mountains. And, when you’re looking for the perfect location to celebrate your love in Central Virginia, look no further.

Downtown Lynchburg

Downtown Lynchburg has so many options to serve as backdrops for your perfect engagement photos. From Monument Terrace to the Riverwalk, to Main Street, you can’t go wrong having your engagement photos taken here.

Hollins Mill Park

Hollins Mill Park is great for more than just walking the Blackwater Creek Trail. The waterfall at the park’s entrance makes a lovely location for a photo.

Old City Cemetery

Old City Cemetery is one of the [not so] hidden gems of Lynchburg. Just like Downtown, there are tons of great backdrops within the walls of our historic cemetery.

Peaks of Otter Lodge

Irvington Springs Farm

If you read our blog featuring an interview with Maggie at Irvington Spring’s Farm, you already know we are in love with this property. Consider celebrating your engagement with this local gem of a property. Some paid options may be available as well (the property features several AirBNB locations).


No matter where you choose to shoot your engagement photos, we can’t wait to work with you!
