Hi there,
My fiancee and I just moved to Chery Hill (east side) almost 2 months ago, we like it so far, especially having a driveway (we came from Philadelphia)! I think Collingswood is more up our alley though (we are only renting in Cherry Hill). But my fiancee is a part time photographer. She shoots families and children outdoors. When we lived in the Art Museum area of Philadelphia she would use the art musuem and it's surrounding landscapes as her "nature backdrops", it worked very well. But now she is looking for an area in Cherry Hill that could work for outdoor photoshoots. Parks, or old buildings that are available to the public (example: barns, historic buildings, bridges). The place needs to have shading too (not just an open park, too much sun in outdoor photography is a bad thing). Any ideas/suggestions would be great, thanks!

Any of the Camden County parks are free unless you are blocking off an area for the shoot. Then you need to contact the parks office for a permit.

There is a pretty waterfall in Pennypacker park in Cherry Hill. Scarborough Bridge is a pretty covered bridge in CH. Barklay Farmstead is pretty.

Most of the mansions and historic sites charge for photo shoots. From $50 to 100+ an hour.

Batsto Village is popular. But you cannot photograph inside the mansion. There is a fee per car to enter in the summer months. The photographer business is very saturated in this area so land/home owners know they can charge because they have been approached many times.

The retirement home in Medford Leas has a arboretum that you can shoot at for weddings for a fee. You would have to call them to see if they charge for small personal portraits. Probably.

Another place to ask is the PPANJ. Also, many of the clients that are willing to pay more for photos will want to go into Philly anyway.

Thanks all for the suggestions!
We will definitely be checking them out.
The covered bridge looks very nice! I can just "see" the pictures now.
Definitely want to check out the waterfall too.
