Elopements, micro-weddings, and pop-up weddings are all the rage now. A mountainside overlook creates the perfect backdrop for these intimate elopement ceremonies.
 
We’ve built elopement packages to make it easier for people to find something to fit their needs. Whether you need 2 hours or 4, we can capture your day in both photography and videography.
 
We wanted to draw attention to some of our favorites places near Chattanooga, making it easier for clients and future clients to find the right spot.  And the great thing about elopements, is that they don’t have to be on a weekend, meaning the spot you choose will be less crowded.
 

Snooper’s Rock

best outdoor elopement locations

Located at Prentice Cooper Nature Reserve and the perfect place for sunrise ceremonies. You get amazing views of the TN river as it bends around the plateau. Depending on the weather, you may end up feeling like you’re above the clouds like for Sarah+Taylor’s ceremony (or even Natalie+Allie’s). This spot is big enough to hold a few guests, or as Laura+Greg did above, just themselves and the pastor.

 

Naked Rock

best outdoor elopement locations

Lookout Mountain – Naked Rock is like the less popular Sunset Rock. It has incredible views, but fewer people. We do engagement sessions up here, and Ian+Caleh’s small ceremony with close friends and family was stunning.

 

Sunset Rock

best outdoor elopement locations

Lookout Mountain – with gorgeous views of the Tennessee Valley and downtown Chattanooga, this is one of the most popular views for residents and tourists. It can be a bit busy, so this would be better for a middle of the week ceremony. We do several engagement sessions a year here, but it would be great for a small ceremony.

 

Cloudland Canyon

Overlook Elopement Wedding Photography

Lookout Mountain – a Georgia state park, Cloudland Canyon has easy hiking trails and great spots for a small elopement. Adam+Jordan’s weekday fall ceremony had the most gorgeous leaf color and clear skies.

 

Glenn Falls Trail

best outdoor elopement locations

Lookout Mountain – while this is not an overlook, it is an incredible trail on the side of Lookout Mountain. It’s lush, green, and has a gorgeous waterfall, perfect for your small wedding or ceremony. Luke+Rachel had the most perfect wedding here this past summer.

 

Falling Water Falls

Signal Mountain – a not as well known hiking trail, Falling Water Falls offers both views and waterfalls. Spencer+Leah’s engagement session turned out lovely!
