No wonder Asheville is such a great destination engagement photo location!
Asheville is a great place to come visit, and the perfect place for your engagement photo session! If you’re already married, we can offer you a post wedding session, anniversary session or perhaps a vow renewal on the mountaintop! If you’re planning to propose, why not do it on your trip to Asheville with your sweetie? We are here to help make any plans and to choose the best location for your engagement pictures with us!
There are so many great locations around Asheville for your engagement photos that we can choose from! If you want epic mountain views, Craggy Gardens or Craggy Pinnacle, Black Balsam, and Max Patch are some top choices. There are also some stunning waterfalls in the area, and we’d love to take you to one! One option here is Triple Falls in DuPont State Forest. Another fun, unique option would be having your engagement photo session at a brewery, such as New Belgium Brewery in the River Arts District. There are some wineries around the Asheville area, as well, that would be a great location choice. One choice here to consider would be Burntshirt Vineyards in Hendersonville. If you are looking to be surrounded by sweet nature in flower form, we could book a session at a flower farm, perhaps Lady Luck Flower Farm may interest you.
If you are looking for an iconic Asheville location, we could even have your engagement session at the Biltmore Estate or the Grove Park Inn. The options are endless and we look forward to chatting with you about the spot that would work best for you. We typically stick with one location for the shoot, but we can work out a half day shoot with you if you wish to include more than one spot.
BRING YOUR DOGGY
If you would like, we are totally open to you bringing some things along with you for your engagement pictures. Bring your doggies! We are all dog lovers and don’t mind one bit if you choose to have them with you for your session! We just need to make sure that we have chosen a location where they are allowed, of course. If you know that you want photos without the pups, we can talk through ideas on that. Perhaps you could bring someone along with you that is able to keep them for part of the session. If it is not too hot or cold, and you or the dogs don’t mind, we could put them in your vehicle for part of the session, as well.
FLOWERS AND PROPS
Another idea is to include flowers in your session. We love incorporating all types of nature and we adore having fresh flowers as part of the photo shoot. We work with Flourish Flower Farm as part of our elopement packages, and we highly recommend using them for your flowers! A female in a flowy dress with a flower crown is one of the most beautiful things to capture! So we are always delighted when a flower crown is a part of our elopements or engagement sessions. If we are having a vow renewal or after wedding session, a bouquet and possibly boutonniere would be a lovely addition! Niki from Flourish can also make you a hairpiece, dog flower collar or floral arbor. Feel free to come up with your own ideas as well!
You are also welcome to bring any props to your photo session that you like. Some ideas here are hand written signs announcing your engagement, elopement or even that you are expecting! You could incorporate hats or other accessories, meaningful items or photos. Bringing a blanket or picnic items is also a great idea! Feel free to be creative here. And also remember that no props are needed. Just you two and your love is all we need!
