Best Bucks County Photography Session Locations

With the current health restrictions, a good outdoor location is key to successful portrait sessions. Here's an ongoing list of some of my favorites in and around Bucks County, PA.

Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve

New Hope, PA

Bowman's Hills Wildflower Preserve is a 4 season treat. The abundance of flowers appear in Spring and Summer, but the foliage in Fall and wonderland in Winter make for beautiful pictures year round. The prize feature is a stone bridge that remains shaded through much of the day for optimum picture opportunities.

Washington Crossing Park

Tyler State Park

Covered Bridge in Tyler State Park

Newtown, PA


Yardley Canal Towpath

Yardley, PA


Tyler Formal Gardens

Newtown, PA

The gardens, fashioned after French and Italian royal landscaping are located behind Tyler Hall on the campus of Bucks County Community College. They were renovated in the last few years as they are now used as a wedding venue. You can still utilize the now well-maintained garden space for a small permit fee of $100, allowing you exclusive access for one hour. Some of the features include sweeping stone staircases, stone walls, fountains, and bronze sculptures.
