Eden Gardens State Park has easily become one of our favorite spots for portraits, especially family photos. The park has gorgeous light throughout the day, majestic live oaks draped in Spanish moss, and a scenic bayou that serve as the perfect complement to the beautiful families and seniors we photograph. The Wesley House sitting on the property also offers a picturesque scene for portraits. We love shooting portraits over the reflection pool and the lovely greenery that surrounds it.
Eden Gardens State Park features the Wesley House, a mansion that once housed the Wesley Family for over 50 years. The 163 acres of land was donated to the State of Florida and the beautiful land is preserved and the grounds are well manicured, ideal for family portraits with authentic Southern scenery.
While we love our beautiful beaches, Eden Gardens State Park offers a scenic location for family photos for those who love our Southern atmosphere with moss draped oaks, still waters at the Tucker Bayou, and beautiful light just about anywhere you look. We recommend leaving plenty of time before or after your photo session to explore the breathtaking grounds or taking a tour of the Wesley House.
