Can anyone recommend a good outdoor photo location in Northeast Philadelphia, Montgomery & Bucks County? I am looking for something with some nice landscaping, flowers possibly, some interesting architecture. I have been trying to google options and haven’t had much luck. Hoping some bees has firsthand experience in this area that can help. <br />Thanks!

nstrans1: you could try contacting some of the MANY horse farms around Bucks County! Not entirely certain the working farms would allow it, but if you offer compensation some may allow you on their property for a while. There are also some farm venues that should let you do that. I grew up in Doylestown and always thought our downtown had really pretty architecture. Fonthill is really pretty and cool as well, and it’s a venue so I don’t see why they wouldn’t allow pictures! Good luck 🙂

Maybe check out the Horticultural Society’s website for possible locations? http://phsonline.org/
If southern Montco is a possibility, how about Valley Forge? Tons of historic buildings and wide open fields. I think there would be a lot of possibilities.

Bowmans Hill Wildflower preserve, washington crossing state park has an old “village” which is just a collection of old houses but they are not lived in and its on the river, bucks county community college has tyler hall which is an old mansion and has a nice garden, valley forge is a good one and fonthill castle too

nstrans1: I did my engagement pictures at Fonthill Castle in Doylestown and they turned out amazing. Of course there’s the castle with tons of beautiful and interesting backgrounds, but theres lots of open land, a tree lined street, an old ivy covered bridge, etc.
I also thought about doing Peddler’s Village.
I’ve seen beautiful pictures from Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania. And Longwood Gardens is stunning–interesting structures, tons of beautiful gardens, fountains, a lake with a gazebo on it that looks like something out of a fairytale–it’s really beautiful!

nstrans1: Chanticleer Gardens, I’m not sure what you call interesting architecture but Bryn Mawr College has some neat locations and gorgeous weeping cherry trees in early May. Also a labyrinth!

I had two engagment shoots, the first one I wasn’t a big fan but the second I loved.
For the first one we did all the typical city spots, logan circle and franklin square. For logan circle it was nice but when it’s nice out tons of people are around. Got a few nice pictures with the fountin in it. Another nice thing about logan circle you can get the art museum in the background if you cross the street to the natural history museum.
Forget about Franklin square since it is a playground tons of people running about. I personally wouldn’t suggest franklin square to be honest.
We walked the benfranklin bridge which was really nice. We got a few great shots there also when you get to the first piller there is a place to sit and which is a great.
I wouldn’t suggest like the art museum or a lot of other places becasue you have to pay a fee to take photos. You have to pay a fee at penns landing too.
For my second engagment photos I got done and loved we took photos at washington square park in the snow and it turned out so lovely.
