Walnut Street Bridge
One of the longest pedestrian-only bridge in the United States, people come from all over to see the iconic blue of this bridge. Stretching across the Tennessee River from Frazier Avenue over to the Hunter Museum, there’s so much to see. It’s no wonder we capture most of our proposals here – it’s easy to blend into the crowd, making it easy to snap the surprise!
Lookout Mountain – a Georgia state park, Cloudland Canyon has easy hiking trails and several great spots for a surprise proposal. You can hike down to the base of the iconic waterfall or at the top, with views of the valley. Fall seems to be the most popular time for a proposal here, because the leaf color is so intense.
Right by the Walnut Street Bridge, this overlook gives a gorgeous backdrop to proposal. Some clients even have families stand on the bridge to get a distant view of the moment, creating some really special and fun shots. The great thing about Hunter Museum overlook, is that you can stroll around the area and get even more beautiful shots with the TN Aquarium in the background and architecture of the museum.
Connected to Coolidge Park, Renaissance Park is a favorite because you can have a picture perfect backdrop of the Chattanooga skyline. With a small dock jutting over the TN River, you can have the Walnut Street Bridge, TN Aquarium, and Lookout Mountain all in the frame behind you. And after the proposal, you can walk through the park, giving you a more remote and woodland feel, even though you’re right in the city.
Atop Lookout Mountain, Point Park gives you gorgeous views of the Chattanooga valley, particularly, the bend of the TN River. The way the river wraps around Chattanooga is insanely gorgeous. With tons of trees, this area is beautiful anytime of the year, but especially in the late fall as the leaves start to change.
