7 best places to propose in Branson
In my seven+ years as a professional photographer in Branson, I’ve shot my fair share of proposals! In the past year, proposal photography has really exploded and I’ve shot lots of fun proposals! If you’re looking for the best places to propose in Branson, you’ve come to the right place.
If you’re planning a Branson propose and need a little help, feel free to give me a call! I’ve helped several of my clients plan the perfect proposal. I know that it can be difficult to plan a surprise proposal, especially if you will be traveling! I’d love to help you.
1. Silver Dollar City
I have to put Silver Dollar City as #1 for the best places to propose in Branson. There are so many background options and Silver Dollar City is a must-do in Branson. Chrismas at Silver Dollar City is a great time to propose, but it’s a good option any time of the year.
2. Branson Landing
The Branson Landing is another must-see in Branson. It’s a great place to propose because you have plenty of options. From right in the middle of the landing, to the fountains, to the many Christmas decorations, The Landing is a great spot for a Branson proposal.
3/4. Top of the Rock/Big Cedar Lodge
Top of the Rock is definitely one of the best places to propose in Branson. I’ve shot several proposals at Top of the Rock/Big Cedar, but my favorite spot was definitely the nature trail.
If the nature trail won’t work (if it were a complete surprise, this would be hard to pull off) the lake overlook is another amazing location.
Or maybe in front of the fountain?
Big Cedar Lodge is another great location next door to Top of the Rock. There are so many options for photos all over the property.
To see more ideas of Big Cedar Lodge, you can check out some of the weddings and sessions below:
Jordan & Jordan’s Big Cedar Wedding
Mark & Katie’s Big Cedar Elopement
Jackie & Jon’s Big Cedar Elopement
Colin & Ashlyn’s Big Cedar Proposal
Nick & Peyton’s Big Cedar Proposal
Or just type in “Big Cedar” in the search bar on my website for even more!
Please note that there may be a fee associated with having professional photos taken at Top of the Rock/Big Cedar Lodge. The fee has been waived for some of my clients, but it’s important to check it out first!
5. Dogwood Canyon
Although it’s technically outside of Branson, Dogwood Canyon is absolutely beautiful. It’s a great place to propose if you love the outdoors or hiking.
6. Dixie Stampede
I haven’t shot a proposal at Dixie Stampede but did find out some information that I thought I would pass along. You can propose anywhere outside, so either by the horses or maybe somewhere with the seasonal decorations as a backdrop.
7. Hiking Trails
Branson has many, many amazing hiking trails. If you love the outdoors and want to plan an outdoor proposal, there are many options in Branson! One couple got engaged at the trails at the Dewey Short Visitor Center and it was perfect! We actually had planned for him to propose at an event, but the event was canceled at the last minute! Thankfully, Branson has many beautiful (and free!) backup options.
I hope this list of the best places to propose in Branson helped you find the perfect proposal spot. Thinking of hiring a photographer for your proposal? Here are why you need a photographer for your Branson proposal. I shot all of the proposals shown here, plus many more! I’d love to shoot yours too.
