Caitlyn and Josh came to me wanting a more unique location, not a Richmond location that I’ve shot at before. So, Caitlyn suggested this little bike path located in the Oregon Hill neighborhood in Richmond.
If you are looking for something that is quite literally covered in greenery, I have found your perfect place. You would have never thought that this pretty path was hidden at the end of the neighborhood. It reminds me of the dreamy countrysides in England. The only thing it was missing was an old cottage.
Bikes were definitely zooming down the path throughout our entire trail so make sure to watch out for that!
For a romantic engagement session at sunset time, this is a dream to photograph. The golden light shining through the trees was one of my favorite parts. Can we talk about how good they look? This location in Oregon Hill is such a gem.
Aside from a few bridges and bike paths, there were also rocks to sit on and climb up. The posing options are endless. I do not recommend walking here in heels, by the way! If you want to have heels in your pictures at this location, I suggest bringing a pair with you to change into once you get into position.
I can’t wait to photograph Caitlyn and Josh’s wedding next year. They are seriously the cutest.
