These are all locations I’ve found and fallen in love with through the years. But I also LOVE new ideas and locations. So please do not hesitate to suggest or ask. I am willing to try just about anywhere! I am also willing to travel outside of the county as well, but a travel fee will apply.

This location is just past the entrance to Shades State Park.

This location requires a little bit of a hike (about a half mile) to the bridge over Sugar Creek. But is worth it! The trek down to the creek can be a bit tricky too but again is worth it, especially at sunset. The structure under the bridge of the old train trestle makes for a great backdrop. This location is best for warmer weather due to the required time outside.

This is location is just west of Darlington on ‘Cassidy Road’.

The bridge is located on Sugar Creek. It is a small trail that leads to a breathtaking rock structure with a spring fed waterfall. This location is best for couples or single person shoots as it is very limited on space and not a safe location for children, as it has steep inclines very near deep parts of the creek. This location is great for all seasons.
