Savannah provides such a dreamy, fairy tale-like backdrop for engagement sessions! With its beautiful squares, cobblestone streets and awe-inspiring architecture you are bound to have beautiful engagement photos. We encourage our clients to fully embrace their interests. Engagement photography really captures the love you share for each other. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite locations for engagement photos in Savannah that might describe exactly what you are envisioning for your session.
1. Historic Squares
Downtown Savannah has 23 historic squares that are all unique. That means 23 free options for beautiful locations! Some feature fountains, landmarks, statues, beautiful oak trees and paths. All squares are surrounded by historic homes which adds to its charm. A few of my personal favorite squares are Lafayette Square, Monterey Square, and Pulaski Square.
2. Forsyth Park
If you are looking for a traditional and recognizable location that will instantly remind you of Savannah, look no further! Forsyth Park is probably one of the most photographed locations in Savannah, and for good reason. The main walkway leading into the park is lined with oak trees, beautifully framing a fountain at the end of the path. The Forsyth Park Fountain was installed in 1858 and I can only imagine all of the love stories it has seen in its time. One of my favorite intimate spots in the park is The Garden of Fragrance. The beautiful white columns and oak tree paths create a quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle. The street lamps in the park also add a classic and romantic touch.
3. Wormsloe State Historic Site
When I think of the classic south, Wormsloe is always the first place to come to mind. Wormsloe Historic Site holds the iconic avenue of oaks. The long avenue is lined with 400 live oaks and their mossy branches arching over the dusty driveway creates a stunning backdrop. These magnificent trees go on as far as the eye can see, creating such dreamy and romantic images! It is also much quieter than Forsyth Park giving you privacy to take gorgeous photos with no rush.
4. The Marsh
There are so many quiet marsh paths in the Low Country. The marsh offers a romantic, natural backdrop. A few things I love about the marsh are the waving marsh grasses, palm trees, and oak trees dripping with spanish moss. The marsh is a great option for a more relaxed and laid back engagement session. Let’s explore nature and have some fun!
5. Tybee Beach
If you are dreaming of romantic pictures of the two of you running on the beach barefoot and watching the sunset, look no further! Just 20 minutes from Savannah, Tybee Beach offers completely different photo opportunities than the city does. This is not your traditional Savannah and that’s the beauty of it. Tybee offers miles of gorgeous beaches, a pier, dunes, sea oats, and a beautiful Lighthouse. This beach has also been the backdrop for some pretty iconic movies such as The Last Song, Baywatch, Gifted, and The Beach House which also adds that unique factor.
