Swannanoa Palace Portrait Session | Afton VA


Bernice & Branson

Deep in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley there lies an Italian Renaissance Villa. It was built as a token of love from husband to wife in the early 1900's, but now is an abandoned yet charming estate that is open to the public to tour around. With it's Georgian marble and terraced gardens this place is truly a sight to behold.

Friends, this is a photographers dream location and yesterday we finally got to have a session there. Bernice and Branson (the dashing couple captured below) adventured with us to explore this hidden gem. Even with scattered rain showers these two were pros in front of the camera. They absolutely rocked their session and with so many favorites we had a hard time choosing which to share. We love their portraits and think you will too!
