Bridal portrait and engagement sessions are complimentary for Live Oak Plantation Brides.

On dates that scheduled events do not conflict with local proms, Live Oak Plantation will offer a complimentary photography session for local high school students on the respective afternoon of their school's prom. Wedding season overlaps prom season. If there is a wedding scheduled the same day, students may seek the bride's permission.  

All students participating in the Live Oak Plantation prom photography session must register with their school's office no later than one week prior to the prom. 

No dressing area will be provided during prom pictures due to the large number of students.

Live Oak Plantation is a photographer's dream. We welcome the use of our picturesque farm's grounds to create beautiful photographs for the special times in your life. 

Photography sessions provide access to the Lakeside Terrace, the pecan orchard, the Rustic Cabin Museum & restroom, the  Outdoor Cathedral Grounds (antique leaded glass windows hang from ancient oak), the Avenue of Oaks, Duck Island, the pier, and Lake Blue Heron.

Photography sessions are outdoor only, and therefore there will be no access to the interior of the main home.  A private dressing area is provided in the Rustic Cabin Museum located near the lake for groups of 1-6. Electricity is provided. No nude photography is permitted.
