As Asheville Wedding Photographers we photograph most of our engagement sessions right here in the mountains. So we wanted to share our top Asheville Engagement Photo Locations and what we love about each.
It is 100% true that the city of Asheville has nooks and crannies that are just the coolest parts of North Carolina. It’s a city that marches to the beat of its own drum and has a very eclectic feel to it. With alleyways to explore and artwork that covers the walls of the city, there is no short supply of places to take photos. We love downtown Asheville because of the variety it offers. So whether you are looking for a more classy style and heading to city hall or a more funky alley vibe, you can get them all. See more from a downtown Asheville Engagement Photo Session here.
The Biltmore is hands down one of the most gorgeous places to have photos made in North Carolina. The home was built in 1895 and has a french old-world feel to it that is incomparable. With acres upon acres of property. Just the house itself is four acres. The entire estate formerly covered 125,000 acres, after giving much land to the forest service it’s now at about 8,000 acres. Which is a lot of beautiful space for taking photos? Whether you love the grandness of the front of the house, the beautiful gardens or the sprawling acreage, there is something for everyone at the Biltmore.

The Arboretum in Asheville is another beautiful location to have engagement photos taken. Every inch of this charming property is covered with blooming flowers in the warmer months of the year. Ar0und every corner is a new and beautiful scene of flowers blooming to perfection. The Arboretum boasts a 434-acre public garden that is located just south of Asheville adjacent to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Set in one of the most beautiful natural settings in America, the Appalachian Mountains, it is a must to consider for your engagement session.

Looking for an epic mountain view for your engagement session? Craggy Gardens is one of our favorite places in Asheville to take stunning portraits with sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Craggy Gardens has several scenes to offer including open meadows, trails, and mountain top views. It’s definitely a place that captures the majesty of Appalachia.

Western North Carolina has no shortage of beautiful mountain top views. Another beautiful location near Asheville for that breathtaking mountain view is Black Balsam Knob. We love Black Balsam for its beautiful trailside trees and mountain top views. See more from this beautiful location by clicking here.
