Where should we take our family photos in Nashville?
This is a question I get asked almost every day! After all, the location you select for your professional family photo session will have a big effect on the outcome. So, it's important that you choose carefully and find somewhere that both reflects your personality and adds to the story you want to tell.
Arrington Vineyards family photo session
One of my favorite places to photograph is at Arrington Vineyards. It's located just outside of Nashville, right off of I840. The Middle Tennessee landscape is stunning, and Arrington offers incredible views of the vines and rolling hills illuminated by golden sunsets. Arrington also does a great job of keeping their grounds well landscaped and clean, so that everywhere we turn is another great place for family photos. There is also a wide variety of backdrops, anything from large boulders, to country fences, to rustic barn textures, to a variety of different trees, to the vines themselves.
Photo policy at Arrington Vineyards
According to Arrington's website, they allow for professional photo sessions without any charge. They do ask that anyone taking photos is respectful of the guests that are present, and to not take photos inside the buildings. A quick tip about photo sessions at Arrington: because it's such a popular weekend destination, especially when they have live music, it can get very crowded on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, making it difficult to shoot family photos without people in the background. If you are wanting to do a portrait session at Arrington Vineyards, plan it for earlier in the week when it's less likely to be crowded. It will also be easier to park on days when it isn't crowded.
As a bonus, grab a bottle of wine while you're there! Their wines are delicious. And I should know … for Christmas, my mom bought me a membership to their wine club, which includes a free wine tasting during every visit. Find out more info here: http://www.arringtonvineyards.com/wine-club
