Photos in First State

location guide: Delaware

Whether you want photos on the cobblestone streets of Old New Castle or the rolling hills of the Brandywine, the Delaware region has plenty of scenery to serve as the backdrop for your next family photo session!


Gibraltar Gardens (Marian Coffin Gardens)

Beautiful gardens that have an enchanted feel, set aside a derelict mansion. Gardens feature a stone portico, iron gates, lily ponds and much more to run through and explore!

Longwood Gardens

Acres and acres of meticulously manicured gardens at one of the tri-state areas most renowned destinations for all things horticulture. From lush green grass to lily ponds to open fields and tree houses, as well as indoor botanicals and themed displays at the holidays, Longwood has pretty much everything you could ask for!


Fair Hill

A gorgeous and expansive park boasting rustic teal barns, horse stables, a covered bridge, rolling streams and tall tree cover, as well as open rolling hills.


UNIVERSITY of delaware

The National Building museum is a large stately museum with a variety of rooms, staircases and colorful backdrops, and is an excellent option particularly if there is inclement weather.

Hockessin

Walk along the campus mall and any number of red brick academic buildings will form your backdrop, which manicured green grass is a perfect place to stop for a picnic or sit down on a bench.

Kennett Square has a variety of scenery from its main street lined with shops, to fun street art and areas of old cobblestone!

Additional Locations

There are many more beautiful spaces in and around the Delaware region. Perhaps you'd like to meet in Trolley Square, Brandywine State Park, the Wilmington Riverfront, or even head downstate to one of the beaches. The Rehoboth boardwalk is a classic or any of the beachfronts of Bethany, Fenwick or Cape Henlopen would be great for a session! I am always happy to meet at one of these locations if timing allows. Please keep in mind that some locations may require photography permits or entrance fees and many take a few weeks to process. Any required entrance or permit fees are the responsibility of the client.
