Probably won’t be allowed on site unless you ask for permission, won’t be allowed to take any photos of students…

Send them an email and ask?

Do whatever has meaning to you guys ! (Providing no rules/laws are broken) I seriously can’t imagine a school would have issues with this though

Sounds supper sweet and romantic. I say go for it. Me and my buddy knew each other in higher school but not together. But it’s a big part of our history so for you two it’s sentimental and means more than a tourist attraction.

Kandykane :  I think that sounds lovely especially if the building has character too

Kandykane :  If you and your FI were big into HS (cheerleader, football player, active member, etc) then it’s a great idea. My SO and I are HS sweethearts and I’ve thought of this. I was big into education, academics, etc he wasn’t really so Idk if Ill propose the idea to him in the future. Imo

Kandykane :  Even if you are taking the photos on a weekend, then its a nice heads up for the school staff. As sometimes there are ‘booster’ classes on weekends or the school will be used for other uses (music lessons, dance lessons, clubs, etc)

They probably won’t have issues but will advise you on the times that the areas of the school that you want to photograph won’t be busy.

I love the idea. Contact the school about doing it on a weekend maybe? It’s such a sweet idea. What a great picture you’ll have to look back on!

Kandykane :  i understand and alot of the friends we still have are from our past in HS too. I’d totally do it if I were you! I was just stating my situation, but it sounds like it holds alot of meaning. You could incorporate some objects from HS in the photos or if you 2 graduated the same year you can include some items from graduation, or a cool sign

I don’t think it’s weird at all! My husband and I met in college and took our engagement photos on campus – they turned out great!

Not weird at all. Though I’d contact the school to give them a heads up as it’s likely private property.

We’re HS sweethearts too and I think this is a great idea. I wouldn’t contact the school because I know our schools property is open to the community on the weekends so it really wouldn’t matter. But yours could be different…
