The Best Engagement Photo Locations In & Around Greensboro
So you chose or designed the perfect engagement ring, popped the question, celebrated together, and now you're ready to find the perfect spot for your engagement photos? We can help! We spoke to three talented Greensboro wedding photographers to get the scoop on their favorite engagement photo session locations in the Triad area.
The Greensboro Arboretum
Aura Marzouk of Aura Marzouk Photography chose the Greensboro Arboretum as one of her favorite spots for engagement photos. "It is one of my favorite places especially in the spring when the trees are blooming. This archway of greenery is like nothing else in the area and photographs so beautifully." Aura pointed out that Greensboro is full of beautiful parks but it's important to remember that most of these parks do require a permit for photography. However, don't let that deter you, Aura explains, "It is not expensive and easy to obtain (a permit) through the parks department...most professional photographers know how to go about securing one." Aura's photo below captures the beauty of the arboretum.
Jordan Tickle of Jordan Tickle Photography suggested Gateway Gardens as another great location for an engagement photo session. He says, "Gateway Gardens is the perfect setting for a fun and light-hearted engagement session! It has plenty of playful areas filled with brightly colored accents, but also has some neutral areas that really let a couple shine through. It’s spacious, rarely crowded and a perfect place to relax and enjoy your engagement session!" Jordan's photo below conveys a spirit of fun and joy through both the setting and this beautiful engaged couple!
Lindley Battle of Lindley Battle Photography suggests engagement locations based on the style of the couple. She says, "I love shooting downtown because it's so classic and timeless, and gives the engagement session a clean and modern feel." Clean lines and hard stone stand in contrast to the love conveyed in the photo below and add an air of sophistication to the portrait.
Engagement photo locations don't stop within the city limits! Jordan Tickle reminded us that, "Just outside Greensboro lies a 300+ acre farm, filled with rolling hills, breathtaking views, groves of mature tress and two of the most stunning barns in our area… Summerfield Farms is not only an amazing place to host a wedding, but it’s also a wonderful spot for engagement photos! There are countless places to find beautiful light around the farm, and so many ways to make your session truly memorable!"
Our beautiful city is full of amazing engagement photo locations and our talented photographers will capture the joy and excitement of your love and preserve it in vivid color for years to come.
