If you go to the Museum of Science, you can get good skyline views w/ the Charles. Or maybe to the Cambridge side of the Charles for good Boston skyline. I’m a major sucker for the Esplanade.

Is there something you two love to do in Boston like go to the theater or the movies? You could take a few pictures with something like that in the background.

I also really like the Copley/Newbury neighborhood. There might be some good locations there. And the Public Library is right there.

You can also take photos at Yawkey Way.  We were at a RedSox/Yankee game earlier in the fall and Yawkey Way was full of people and really fun! It would make for some great photos.  You may need a ticket to get into the "middle" of the yawkey way though…

ooh. I looove the Public Library idea!

I think you are right. The Fenway area will be to chaotic to try to get down there during a Yankees series!

The Newbury area would be nice too. You could do the North End for more of an urban feel, or maybe try wandering Beacon Hill with all the brownstones.

Everyone has already said the ones I would have suggested…although, one of my favorites is down by the water across the foot bridge by the courthouse.  You can take GORGEOUS pics of the water and the Boston skyline, including the Custom House, from there and usually there is some type of impressive ship hanging around near Rowes Warf.

Or Post Office square is pretty, too…you can get the city/park vibe without the commonality of the common.

If the State House is still open they might let you in. My FI and I were there on a Sunday when it was closed, but the guard sneaked us in anyway for photos. Great staircases and some really cool backdrops.

How about the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum? You might have to get a photo permit, but the atrium is gorgeous and there are all sorts of cute little balconies and benches to take photos on.

The Christian Science Building?
