Great Marsh Estate, Bealeton VA | Photoshoot Location

The MEP Experience

The Great Marsh Estate is a romantic photoshoot location in the DC area. Located about an hour away in Bealeton, VA, the Great Marsh Estate is a step into the world of antiquated elegance. I adore the old-world atmosphere this Georgian manor provides. The manor is set on over 100 acres – you’ll find wide open lawn, a tree-lined road, stunning terraces, and romantic garden to compliment the manor.

I particularly love the Great Marsh Estate for dreamy sessions with ethereal gowns! The scenery is simply perfect for all things gossamer and divine.

The Great Marsh Estate does require a permit to photograph sessions there. However, you have access to the entire property and don’t need to worry about crowds! It is another location that I love for evening because of the gorgeous light it receives.

It is not difficult to see why I list it as one of my favorite photoshoot locations in the DC area!

I photographed the maternity session below at the very start of spring. Although we didn’t luck out with any blooms, the Great Marsh Estate still provided beautiful light and a stunning backdrop. The light trickled in from the tree-lined road so beautifully, as seen below.

Look at this beautiful evening light! I love how it fills up the back lawn in the evening.

Although photographed before the spring blooms, The Great Marsh Estate is still a fantastic location for its golden hour light.
