Want to discover some of the best places to take engagement photos in Northwest Arkansas? Read on to discover my very favorites– those spots that couples request again and again!
White Rock Mountain
This one is a little bit of a drive from Fayetteville, but it tops this list as my favorite Northwest Arkansas elopement and engagement session spot! White Rock Recreation Area is located in Mountainburg and the views are just stunning! There’s gorgeous greenery throughout the year and you can check out those killer sunset views year round!
Downtown Fayetteville Engagement Photos
I LOVE Downtown Fayetteville, especially in the fall. This funky square has tons of gorgeous buildings in different colors and adds an urban twist to your engagement session. Plus, there are tons of murals, parking garages, alleyways and other spots that offer a more modern flair.
Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art
Wanting an engagement photo location in Northwest Arkansas that feels more modern and architectural? Enter Crystal Bridges! Located in the heart of Bentonville which has grown relatively upscale and trendy in the last few years, Crystal Bridges is an excellent space for engagement photos, featuring stunning architecture as well as green spaces and paved and non-paved trails.
Buffalo National River
Located just an hour and twenty minutes from Fayetteville, this scenic spot offers painted bluffs and a beautiful, winding river in the background. It’s beautiful year-round, but fall is by far my favorite season for Buffalo River engagement sessions.
Devil’s Den State Park
Located in Winslow (just a short drive from Fayetteville), Devil’s Den features several waterfalls, a scenic overlook and lots of trees. What’s not to love for your romantic and outdoorsy engagement photos? As a bonus, you can rent a cabin and make a weekend out of it!
Hip, funky and fresh– Eureka Springs is where it’s at! This spot is just a short drive from Bentonville and has some really cool Victorian style architecture! My favorite places to take photos in Eureka Springs include Lake Leatherwood, The Crescent Hotel and Basin Springs Park + Main Street (pictured!)
This revitalized downtown area has effortless cool for a more modern engagement-session feel! I particularly love the front of 21C hotel and the different murals plastered around the square. Bonus points– you can grab a drink afterwards in one of the cool bars nearby.
Tanyard Creek Nature Trail
Waterfalls, fields, forests, oh my! I LOVE Tanyard Creek and it’s one of my favorite Northwest Arkansas engagement photo locations! There are so many gorgeous natural features, including two waterfalls, rock formations, a gorgeous trail and a wooden boardwalk. This is a perfect spot if you want to be outdoorsy and explore a little!
Hobbs State Park
Want somewhere super private and secluded? Hobbs State Park is the place! Located on Beaver Lake, you can find some gorgeous private gravel bars with views of the lake! My favorite trails are the Pigeon Roost Trail and Van Winkle Loop! Plus there is always so much greenery and lots of rock formations and water features! This is my go-to for the couple who don’t want to travel far but who want some epic scenery!
Bella Vista, Arkansas
Bella Vista is just north of Bentonville and features lush greenery, caves, lakes, forested nature trails and waterfalls! Two of my favorite places for engagement photos in Bella Vista include Dripping Springs Park and Tanyard Creek!
Located south of Fayetteville, the White River has some gorgeous overlooks and views! Again, this backdrop is for the more adventurous and outdoorsy couple! There are tons of beautiful spots and there’s a certain wilderness about the place, which is why it rounds out the list of my favorite Arkansas engagement photo locations!
