Cinderella Wedding Co has been capturing Snooper’s Rock elopement photography for years. It’s a top spot for elopements and micro weddings, even more now due to the pandemic and clients adjusting their bigger weddings to small, intimate outdoor settings.
The overlook at Snooper’s Rock is a top wedding location for a reason. You have panoramic views of the bending Tennessee River – almost like a more lush, smaller scale Horseshoe Bend. And depending on the weather, the clouds might be low and you’ll actually be above the clouds – what could be more magical than that?
About 45 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, it’s the perfect spot to be out of the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s a gorgeous drive, and then it’s only a small walk from the parking area to the overlook, meaning it’s relatively easy to navigate for couples and their guests. Another bonus of Snooper’s Rock is that there are fields of wildflowers, giving you even more variety in your final wedding album.
It works best for sunrise weddings, but if you have a great photographer like Joseph, he can make any time of day work. However, sunrise really is the best time – it’s quieter, romantic, and has the symbolism of starting a whole new adventure as the sunrises over you. Another bonus is that Joseph is a FAA certified to fly a drone to help capture some even more epic shots of you.
