Raspberry Plain in Leesburg Virginia is one of my favorite venues to work at. From the minute you walk into the mansion you notice the beautiful architecture and history behind the property. Upstairs the bridal getting ready room is newly renovated and has absolutely gorgeous light streaming in making for perfect portraits.
Outside the property there are many suitable locations for photos. The front of the venue has a large grassy area that is perfect for family and bridal party portraits and which showcases the front of the manor. The side of the venue boasts a beautiful maze like garden that offers unique and interesting viewpoints and compositions and nearly perfect light from each direction. The back of the venue is the most breathtaking with stunning views of Virginia's hills with a sky that lights up in multiple colors at sunset.
