Favorite Summer Locations

Poppie Studios shoots primarily throughout the Tallahassee, Florida area. Tally provides a huge variety of backdrops for engagement and formal photos, family portraits, senior portraits and weddings. I’m always open to trying new locations and would love to hear your ideas and suggestions, but here are some of my favorite areas that I love to recommend to my clients:

Dorothy B. Oven Park

The Dorothy B. Oven Park Main House features a classic manor-style home with rare magnolia paneling, wooden floors, antique furniture and artwork, full kitchen facilities and a charming lanai. The six-acre garden is filled with azaleas, camellias, palms and other local flora giving the park an ambience not found elsewhere making it a great historic location for wedding photography.
Alfred B. Maclay Gardens Park
These gardens feature a picturesque brick walkway, a secret garden, a reflection pool, a walled garden and hundreds of camellias and azaleas. For those who love running, nature trails meander through the woods overlooking the lake and offer a grand backdrop to senior portraits and engagement sessions for couples who love to run together!
Cascades Park
The newly renovated park features 2.3 miles of biking and walking trails, an outdoor amphitheatre and beautifully landscaped green space and ponds. It’s the centerpiece of a world-class, dual-purpose downtown 24 acre park extending from Pensacola Street on the north to Monroe Street on the southwest and is the perfect location for many different photo sessions: Family + Children, Engagements, Bridal and Wedding.
