Engagement Photography Ideas Nashville, Tennessee
Are you looking for inspiration for an upcoming engagement shoot in Nashville, Tennessee? Or are you building up an engagement photography portfolio? Actually, the reason doesn’t really matter as Nashville can offer great locations for everyone.
Nashville has lots of to offer starting from beautiful nature and ending with quirky downtown streets. I had created a list with great engagement photography ideas in Nashville so don’t waste your time and take a look below.
7 Engagement Photography Ideas
1. Nashville Skyline In A Sunset
Nashville has an imposing skyline that can take your breath away. Our tip is to go during sunset (golden hour) and catch the most romantic moments of your couple. Downtown skyline and Cumberland River in an evening give you a perfect background for a modern couple. Don’t forget to take some photos at Nashville pedestrian bridge.
Make your couple walk along the bridge while holding hands, and catch warm sunset light on their smiling faces – perfect romantic photos with real feelings. Don’t forget to take advantage of the sunset, shoot with natural light and let your couple to enjoy the magnificent view.
2. Quirky Downtown Streets
Nashville downtown is filled with vibrant color buildings that look great as a background in the photos. Don’t be afraid to take your couple to the quirky downtown and experiment with buildings. Your photos will be full of colors and vintage vibe.
3. Nashville City Parks
If you like more nature than cityscape in your photos, consider having an engagement shoot at one of Nashville city parks. Take a look at our park recommendations below:
• Centennial Park – great if you want some urban feeling in your photos. Don’t forget to include famous Parthenon standing in a park.
• Shelby Park – this park is full of nature and has majestic Shelby hills. Perfect if you are taking engagement photos during autumn.
• Warner Parks – two big parks that are very loved by local Nashville photographers. Take your couple for a relaxing shoot while walking up the hills. I highly recommend shooting at early morning and evening (during the sunset or before).
4. Rustic Photoshoot
Just outside Nashville, you can find beautiful countryside. I highly recommend Bloomsbury farm as it is one of the most iconic places for photo-shoots in Nashville. However, be free to find your own favorite spot as there are so many farms around the city.

5. Mountain Retreat
Surprise your couple with a gorgeous photo-shoot in the Appalachian Mountains that are located not too far from Nashville. Those mountains have numerous hills, wildlife and beautiful streams. Inform the bride and groom-to-be to pack some extravagant clothes for the photos by the stream. Don’t forget to get some filters to add some mysterious fairy tale vibes to the photos.
6. Romantic Day By The Lake
What can be more romantic than a couple sitting in a boat and rowing around the lake? Yes, Nashville even has several lakes where you can take stunning photos. Definitely arrange a wooden boat for the couple and take some photos of them enjoying the rowing. Even if you are shooting in cold weather, you can still get great shots, especially, early in a morning.
7. Wedding Venue
Finally, our last idea for the engagement photography in Nashville is a wedding venue. Sometimes wedding venues are the best for engagement photography as it can be quickly arranged, it is full of props and amazing views.
If you are running low on inspiration, ask the couple if they would like to have their engagement photos taken at their wedding venue. You never know, it might be best for you.
I hope you had enjoyed these ideas and it will help you to plan the best engagement photo-shoot in Nashville, Tennessee. Don’t be afraid to experiment and you might find other great locations around the city. I wish you the best of luck and let me know if you had used any of these ideas.
