When it comes to finding the perfect location for your engagement session research
can get a little overwhelming. There’s either no information on the location you
want or too much information about stuff you don’t need. Hopefully, I can help out with ideas in finding the
right location for you while getting to share some of my favorites.
First is the forest-y feel. Most of my couples opt for this look for their engagement sessions.
Through scouting at various parks I’ve found that the Piedmont area of North Carolina
has some of the best forest locations for forest looks.
When it comes to the feel of your engagement session, you really want to choose what best fits both of your personalities.
Are you more of a hike a mountain for those sunset views or a day on the town grabbing a cup of coffee kinda couple?
Above are downtown areas, one outside in the Townsquare fountain in Cary, North Carolina, and the other in a
local coffee shop in Greensboro called Full Bloom Coffee Roaster.
Whoever you go with as your wedding photographer should be able to recommend
a couple of spots for inspiration but ultimately the decision is up to you!
Next are the Mountains of North Carolina.
Blue Ridge Parkway has some of the best views of mountains, some of my favorite
hikes have been Craggy gardens and Black Balsam Knob. They both have given me sunset gold for photos!
Last but not least, if you can’t get enough of the ocean find a beach access and go
for a stroll on your favorite beach in North Carolina. Brittaney and Casey loved their
session at Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina! I have yet to be disappointed by
a North Carolina beach! Wherever you live in North Carolina you can find good ideas
and locations by thinking of local restaurants, parks, hikes, coffee shops, arcades, sights,
attractions, events, and more. The ideas are endless. Decide where and when you want to go!
