Spring Biltmore Engagment

Matt & Meredith 2022

Beautiful spring proposal and engagement session at the Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina. We were fortunate to have such a lovely spring day for Matt’s surprise proposal at the Biltmore Lagoon.

Springtime at the Lagoon is impressive due to the sheer number of birds and the general lack of crowds. If you are looking for a quiet place to enjoy a stroll along the water, whether the Lagoon or the French Broad River, this is the spot. Several areas are set up for picnics along the French Broad River.

Matt chose this spot to avoid crowds and have some privacy at the Biltmore Estate for his surprise proposal. Learn more in our Guide to Biltmore Proposals!

Asheville is a unique spring getaway, and the Biltmore is sure to not disappoint. The Tulips provide a tapestry of pastel colors that make for fantastic engagement photography backdrops. The options are limitless.

The Biltmore gardens are the work of landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted; you would be hard-pressed to find a better location for Engagement Photography!

The tulips in the Walled Garden are often the star of the show in early spring. To get away from the crowds, we often head down to the Azalea Gardens with their striking blooms of vibrant colors. If you start your engagement photo session early before Sunset, this is one of the best spots because it offers deep shade and soft subtle colors. Engagements at Biltmore spring gardens are simply stunning.

If you need help with Engagement Photography Ideas, we are always a phone call away and happy to help!

Real Engagement Photography Biltmore Estate

You will undoubtedly want some architectural photos after you’re done with the gardens; the Biltmore Is a French Renaissance-style estate. There are some excellent photo opportunities at the front of the estate; however, you have to arrive after the crowds have left to get these pics.

It is best not to plan your Engagement photography on a popular weekend as there may be weddings on the estate if architectural photos are essential. We can always head to Diana Hill if there are crowds and still capture the Biltmore in the background!

These pictures were taken at the front of the Biltmore Estate and are part of our extended engagement photography packages.

After you finish up your photos and the Walled Garden with the tapestry of tulips, you walk down to the Azalea Gardens; slightly past the lower gardens are the blossoming meadows, as you can see with the bright yellow flowers. No spring engagement photoshoot would be complete without a picture in the fields!
