With the weather starting to turn, and customers asking to book their senior sessions, I am frequently asked about a great location for Senior Pictures. I have to say, my favorite place in the area is Occoquan. The little historic town is so charming, with its restaurants, shops, old buildings, parks, a bridge, waterfall and waterfront. You just have such a big variety of different looks all in one location.
Historic Occoquan is an original 18th-Century mill town nestled on the banks of the Occoquan River. Designated a Virginia historic landmark in 1983, Occoquan is neither a precise restoration nor a museum, but a living, breathing artists' community filled with over 100 shops. This charming town has successfully combined over 200 years of history with the modern attractions of shopping and dining. Occoquan offers everything from antiques, arts, crafts, fashions, and gifts to unique specialty shops for miniature enthusiasts and much more.
