I am having my engagment pictures done on August 1st and have no idea where to take them! I am located in North Andover so I was hoping to stay North of Boston if possible.
I was thinking Newburyport because it seems pretty versatile. I have seen other engagement pics taken there and like the look of them. However I dont really know the town … can anyone recommend a specific spot or area of town that would be good for pics? I wouldnt even know where to tell my photographer to meet me and I dont want to just say “Newburyport.”
I would also welcome any other north of Boston suggestions 🙂

Check out Lynch Park in Beverly. It is right on the water. There is a Rose Garden in there as well that will be very nice in August.

I second Lynch Park’s Rose Garden. It’s beautiful in the Spring and Summer when all the flowers are in bloom.
Also, since you are already in North Andover, you should check out The Stevens-Coolidge Place http://www.thetrustees.org/places-to-visit/northeast-ma/stevens-coolidge-place.html
Maudslay State Park in Newburyport might be a nice place as well http://www.mass.gov/dcr/parks/northeast/maud.htm

I’d check out Salem Willows. There’s lots of choices for pictures: the park area, carnival rides, old fashion restaurant, beaches, picnic gazebos, fishing pier, arcade (some shots playing skeeball), willow trees. The place is old world mini amusement park tacky but I think there would be a lot of super cute places for photos. Even in the neighborhood beside the willow there would be some nice shots at the private beach. Also, right near there is Winter Island. There are remnants of an old fort there.
