If you've ever wondered, "Where should we take our engagement photos in Greenville", you need not wonder any longer. As a weddings and engagement photographer in Greenville, I've searched, scouted, and have come to find a few places that I love and my clients do as well. The following list contains places that are public, open, private, intimate, large, small, and in between, offering you a little bit of what Greenville, SC has to offer.
1. Falls Park on the Reedy
Nothing is more iconic to Greenville than Fall's Park on the Reedy. This park is nestled right in the center of downtown, but offers a natural getaway with several pockets to take photos. Liberty Bridge stretches across the Falls and offers architectural eye-candy. Because Falls Park is so central, it his highly requested. However the park is so big that you're guaranteed to find an area private and quiet to take your photos. If you prefer more privacy, avoid scheduling shoots during high traffic times of the day.
If Greenville is significant to you and your partner, consider having your engagement photos taken at Falls Park.
2. The Loft at Soby’s
The Loft at Soby's is a charming event venue located in Downtown Greenville. The Loft sits above the Soby's restaurant. For couples who want a more cozy, secluded engagement session with a private rooftop, check out The Loft at Soby's.
3. The Village of West Greenville
The Village of West Greenville has undergone some significant changes in recent years to deem it Greenville's arts district. While new developments continue to pour in, The Village has managed to keep its charm. If you're looking for downtown proximity without the downtown traffic, head to The Village of West Greenville for your engagement photos.

Furman University has a beautiful campus that features a rose garden, the Furman mall, and the Furman lake to name a few. Furman is really green if you prefer a well-manicured and natural feel to your engagement session.
