Photography at Ravenswood Mansion

With over 400 acres of pristine Tennessee hills and a stately antebellum mansion as your backdrop, Ravenswood Mansion is a highly sought after location for professional photo sessions.

 Our Photo Policy


Ravenswood Mansion is located in Smith Park, which is a public park owned and maintained by the City of Brentwood. As such, anyone is welcome to come to our park and shoot on the grounds and around the outside of the mansion anytime during park hours. The park is open dawn until dusk.

However, if a private event has been booked, photography is NOT allowed in the areas immediately surrounding the house. The map below outlines our private event boundaries. Please check our event calendar prior to your session.


Beginning 12/1/19: For photography inside the mansion, an hourly booking is required. We only accept indoor photography session bookings on Tuesdays and Thursdays between the hours of 9am-4pm on days when other events are not booked. The hourly rate is $50 with a two hour minimum.

Included with this booking is full use of the inside and outside of our mansion, as well as our bridal and grooms suites for dressing.

NOTE: Private use of the house is NOT guaranteed during this time, as tours and/or maintenance may be going on as well. For guaranteed private use inside the mansion, a regular event booking is required. See our regular event pricing for more information.


If you have more questions, are interested in filming in our historic mansion, or are ready to book an hourly session, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you further.
