Located just a short distance from DC, Sugarloaf Mountain is a gorgeous natural setting for your engagement shoot. Here in the heart of the Monocacy Valley, you’ll find excellent backdrops as you step through the leaf-covered forest floor, or hop from boulder to boulder. For a touch of architecture, you can photograph in front of the wide white walls and stately arched windows of the historic Strong Mansion.
In this strikingly beautiful location, miles of paths wind through the mountain under the cover of the forest, which turns brilliant colors of crimson and gold in the fall. In the spring, you’ll be delighted by trees blooming in whites, pinks, and reds amidst the soft green of new leaves.
The many overlooks make lovely surroundings for touching photography. Gaze out over acres of the bucolic countryside or stand on boulders at the overlooks of the East or West view and see the mountains rising in the distance.
Make your engagement session truly unique by exploring the old fort, with its tumbled rocks and a rich sense of history. The variety of natural beauty makes this a perfect, atmospheric location for DC engagement photography.
