If you have not planned your engagement photo session yet now is the right time! Atlanta is crammed to the brim with gorgeous photogenic locations for pre-wedding or even post-wedding photoshoot and that too in very close vicinity to this amazing wedding venue. Here’s the list of our favorite ones.

When you are in or around Atlanta city, there are countless options from where you can pick the right choice to get engaged, and the one thing that you will get for sure is the timeless elegance of the city amid tenderness. With 39 acres of mature hardwood forest, Cator Woolford Gardens leads the list as the gorgeous spot for outdoor Atlanta engagement photography! Located minutes from Downtown, it is an oasis of old-world charm with the beauty of nature within Metropolitan Atlanta where you can spend some joyful moments and shoot for a chic engagement session. The moment you step inside this lovely estate, its lush gardens, and breathtaking greenery shower a sense of calmness and tranquility along with the stone steps, columns, and arches bringing an old-world feel. 

Another hidden gem is the expansive property of a 100-year-old farmhouse, Pepper Sprout Barn, that has been transformed with a touch of historic charm and a modern-chic to give you the best taste of the Atlanta region. The cherry on the top is its elegant design in brilliant cherry red with stark white trim and wooden shutter that makes it an ideal photo prop for your Atlanta engagement photography session. The climate-controlled barn lets our Atlanta engagement photographers capture some romantic shots of you and your fiance posing for some candid shots beneath the string lights that illuminate the entire space. Pepper Sprout Barn has you covered with its six acres of pasture land to get some natural shots for this sweet day that you would love to cherish forever. 

The gorgeous 3,200 acres of natural beauty awaits you at Stone Mountain, a place with endless options for your engagement in Atlanta.  Enjoy a lovable walk along wooded paths and covered bridges, or wade barefoot in a beautiful rushing creek to feel the intense beauty around. Our engagement photographers near Atlanta will bring you some truly striking photos at the top of Stone Mountain amid the sweeping views of the trees and gorgeous sunset- just like you have envisioned for your Atlanta engagement photography shoot.

There is no second thought on the fact that the city of Atlanta has so much to amaze you, from the ultimate awe-inspiring views to the amazing nightlife and so much more to explore including the major attractions that will surely add some adventure to your engagement photo session or some lovely cafes to enjoy a glass of wine and a favorite coffee of your sweetheart without thinking about what the entire world is up to. It is time to spend some joyful days before you both say goodbye to your singlehood!

Start your tour with a visit to Georgia Aquarium, the nation's largest and of course, a magical aquarium! The 10 million gallons of fresh and saltwater houses the largest single aquarium habitat in the world with plenty of diverse shows, interactive animal interactions, and encounters, Behind the Seas tours, and much more. For those couples who are not the native of Atlanta, Georgia Aquarium is dedicated to enhancing the conservation and preservation of animals everywhere and creating a positive impact on aquatic life in Atlanta and around the world.

You will feel like the past comes to life at the Atlanta History Center, housing the largest collection of Civil War memorabilia in the Southeast area. With a trip to this place, you can see Atlanta's fall and rise as an International City. It is fun to roam around the acres of gardens or take a run on the basketball hardwood from the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games held in Atlanta. And amidst all this exploration, take time to relax at the serene spots in between to save these moments in your cameras and memories altogether. 

One more place that helps you know more about the city is a six-acre garden cemetery called Oakland Cemetery that hides the history of Atlanta in its soil. Including Civil war soldiers, mayors, and Georgia icons such as Bobby Jones and Margaret Mitchell that were buried here, the place says a lot about its rich history. When it comes to looking for some iconic backdrops to pose around, the mausoleums and sculptures surrounded by winding paths, ancient oaks, and magnolias are a good choice. The cemetery is not only a reflection of the history and segregation in the city but also showcases progress that this landscape made, going in parallel with the city. 

Other than the ancient touch, the green life here also captivates you at a very first glimpse. As one of the favorite spots in the city, Piedmont Park is a green respite for you and your furry friend from modern life. This park is one of the first places many couples think of for engagement sessions in Atlanta. We would suggest going at off-peak times so that there are fewer people around. It also helps to check the upcoming calendar, to make sure no special events or festivals are happening on the day you plan to take your photos. If you start on a sunny day, a walk along scenic paths, playing sports, or simply laying on the grass and enjoying the beauty will be a boon! Looking for more? Bask in the sun, and plunge into the pool to beat the heat.

As you uncover this enchanting Atlanta wedding venue, you and your partner will adore the serene, southern style and love to spend the happiest day of your life here amidst the serenity so that every moment of this grand day passes by in style and can be remembered as an epitome of grandeur.
