With our move from New Oxford to Fairfield coming up quickly, I have been doing some research and getting a list together of places I have shot in the past that are close to Fairfield, or are even places I would look forward to shooting in the future. Sure, we have many plans and land behind the new studio, but it is always nice to have other locations as well. Below are just a few of the locations on my list.
Caledonia offers a number of really nice areas for photographs. Between the pine run reservoir (top left) which my family has kayaked, and the Caledonia falls (top right) which has been the background to many engagement photos, there are many different looks and backgrounds in this beautiful state park. I have done several sessions here over the years. From family and extended family sessions to engagements. Caledonia is just as good of a location as Codorus State park. Only Codorus doesn't offer a waterfall!
Tayamentasachta Environmental Center is beautiful. From there beautifully placed trees, to their gazebo and barns. Tayamentasachta is unique and fun for family or children sessions. Not to mention there is much for the children to do during the summer with checking out the pond they have with ducks galore!
It's hard to believe, but the Appalachian trail is always easily forgot about by a lot of clients, and has to be one of natures most beautiful stretches of land. From streams with small falls and rapids to stunning trails laced with mountain laurel, the Appalachian trail is an gorgeous location for photos. Our family has hiked many areas of the Appalachian trail, however I have found my own special spot that I am really looking forward to doing sessions at.
Gettysburg has always been a favorite of mine. With the amazing history and many looks throughout the year, this is a location that can offer it all. Devil's Den, the Weat Field, Sach's Covered Bridge... they are all stunning and offer an amazing backdrop for any type of photography.
Lesher's sunflower field is another hidden oasis many people who are not local to the area know nothing about. With fields upon fields of stunning sunflowers, this is a prime summer spot if you can catch these radiant beauties in peak bloom.
