Whether you’re looking for wedding photos, engagement photos, proposal photos, or even family photos at The Biltmore in Asheville, there are plenty of great photo spots to choose from. If you’re unfamiliar with the grounds and gardens, you may not know exactly where to take your photos. I’ve had the incredible opportunity to photograph many couples and families there over the years and thought it would be helpful to share my top picks for photo spots at The Biltmore.
Sure, you’re going to grab some photos with the iconic Biltmore in the background, but don’t underestimate getting up close and personal with the house itself. The house’s neutral colors with intricate details makes for a stunning backdrop for your photos.
The South Terrace is the large open area on the south side of the house. If there’s no tent setup for an event, you’ll definitely want to grab photos here. You can see the side view of the house with an incredible view of the mountains. This spot is especially gorgeous when the sun is setting… there’s a golden glow cast on the house at this time. This area does tend to get busy, so just be aware that there will likely be several others wandering around.
While The Biltmore is known for it’s mansion, it’s also known for it’s perfectly tailored gardens. Here are three of my favorite gardens:
