Maryland Photo Locations

Cylburn Arboretum WeddingProbably the most common question and most common struggle when booking your photo session is, “Where do we go?” Of course I have a few favorite spots but I’m always in for finding and trying new locations and getting creative with some spots. However, to make things a bit easier, I’ve complied a list of Maryland Photo Locations to get you started.

Federal Hill Engagement Portraits

Federal Hill
Old Ellicott City
University of Maryland
Towson University
Inner Harbor
Tindeco Wharf
Mt. Vernon
Fell’s Point

Naval Academy
The Maryland Zoo – this would require a ticket to get into the park
Washington DC Zoo
