Where to Capture the Best Fall Foliage in Arkansas

Eugene Grace Photography

Living in The Natural State is great for a number of reasons, one of which is our access to picture perfect locations. Fall foliage around Arkansas can make for some truly magnificent engagement pictures or bridal portraits, and we can’t get enough.

Photographer Erin Wilson loves taking clients to Pinnacle Mountain. She also enjoys taking fall photos at Petit Jean Mountain. Benton-based photographer Drew Cason says his go-to spot for fall foliage is Two Rivers Bridge.

From the Ozarks to the Delta, our state has numerous locations you can get to in no time for your upcoming photo session. Plus, you get to enjoy a scenic drive on the way! Some additional popular spots include:

You're Going to Love What This Couple Did for Their One Year Anniversary

Two Carters Photography

One year anniversary photoshoots are nothing new — but this one takes the cake for unique. Helen and Payam Chitsazan recruited their engagement and wedding photographer, Melissa from Two Carters Photography, to capture a slice of their life in their home and their adorable puppy, Francis. The twist? They shared the top tier of their naked, red velvet wedding cake courtesy of CC's Cakery in Bentonville.

We chatted with Melissa about why this shoot was so special:

Q: What made this shoot unique for you as a photographer?
A: I absolutely loved getting to shoot in Helen and Payam's home. It was their first place together so it was filled to the brim with sweet memories of their past and all of their hopes for the future. I think shooting in their home brought such a sweet intimacy to the images and really spoke into who they had become as a married couple over the past year. Plus, they just have amazing style! Their space was white, bright, and filled with light — a photographers dream! AND I got the super fun chance to flip through the album that we designed for them and see all of their wedding pictures filling up their walls!

Q: What do you love about photographing couples over time?
A: By the time we have photographed a couple at their wedding, we feel like we are friends! This was exactly the case with Helen and Payam! I mean how could we not? We've been there the whole way through engagement to "I do." By the end of the night (of the reception), not only have we shared in their wedding day with them, but we've also gotten to know their friends and family as well!

P.S. Melissa was so inspired by this shoot that Two Carters Photography is now offering anniversary sessions as a fun referral bonus for their current wedding clients.
