Spend the afternoon in the historic village of Waterford, Virginia, a National Historic Landmark. This quaint town in Loudoun County is located along Catoctin Creek and offers many photo opportunities, from historic homes and buildings, to beautiful landscaping, and even an old church and a mill. The fall foliage adds a colorful backdrop to the scenes and complements the historic homes.

Through special access, we'll also have the unique opportunity to step back in time and photograph in the Second Street School, a one-room school house complete with late 1800's period props.

We'll also be able to photograph on a number of private properties in Waterford and you'll have the opportunity to capture intimate scenes, as well as unique perspectives of the village.

Throughout the afternoon Corey can help you with your creative vision as well as answer technical questions and will give you immediate feedback on your technique and compositions with critiques in the field. A small group size allows everyone to receive individual attention.
