In this blog post I've put together some of the best locations to pop the BIG question along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Asheville, North Carolina. Please note these are no the only spots, however, they are among the top of my list when suggesting locations to my couples.

In case you're new around here I'm Deanna, a portrait photographer serving couples in Western North Carolina! The Blue Ridge Parkway is one of my absolute favorite places to not only visit and explore on my own personal time, but also a place where I can document the special, milestone moments in my couples' relationship.

The Blue Ridge Parkway is full of epic locations with beautiful views, landscapes, and scenery for all leveled hikers. No matter what season or time of year you plan to propose, the BRP will never disappoint.
