Professional Photography at Oatlands

From the historic buildings to the natural beauty of the gardens and grounds, Oatlands is rich with amazing photo opportunities. We encourage guests to make lasting memories by choosing Oatlands for your photo shoot!

We ask that the subject and content of photo shoots adheres to appropriate standards of a public, family-friendly venue. Costumes and nudity are prohibited. This standard will be enforced and failure to comply will result in the termination of the photo session without refund. 

Please reference fees and photography rules below.



Professional Photography (Engagement, family, prom, senior photos, professional headshots)
A typical photo session is $50 per hour.

If working with 5 or more subjects, each additional person is $10.

Please Note: Oatlands does not provide a photographer. You will need to find a photographer for your photo shoot.

*Oatlands does not allow pets on the grounds. This applies to photo shoots as well.

An additional $50 per hour is charged for all photo sessions which take place outside of Oatlands regular business hours of 10-5 and must be scheduled ahead of time.

We only schedule photo shoots when the site is open for the season, April 1- December 30th. Ready to schedule a shoot? Please call Denise at 703-777-3174 or email.

We only allow a certain number of photo shoots per day and reserve the right to refuse walk-ins if we have an event or other sessions happening. If you are interested in a session after 5 p.m. the earlier you make the reservation, the better. If you call a few days before, we may not be able to accept the request due to short notice.
