    I think this could be interesting.  Cemeteries can be really lovely.  I was just a a beautiful one with sculptures and lovely lawns so I can envision photos that focus on the lawn or park of a cemetery.  If you are going to choose such a location, be sure that you aren’t picturing photos that would require you to stand or sit on a tombstone in such a way that would be considered disrespectful by a family member observing your photo shoot.

    I think it’s an interesting idea – but could easily enter the “creepy” or “disrespectful” territory.

    So long as you’re careful not to do anything too distasteful I think it would look great.  Can’t wait to see the pics!

    I’m voting no, not because it’s creepy, but because I think it’s disrespectful.

    For me, I associate graveyards with immense sadness, so I personally couldn’t feel happy there.

    So, whilst the architecture may be stunning, IMO, it doesn’t sit right for me.

    I’m in the not creepy but disrespectful club.

    Sorry, but this is not ok in my book. Even if it was historic and there were no “modern” graves there, it’s still a grave site. You know, where people buried their dead and cried. Having a “rock the frock” at one would be so wrong on so many levels.

    Find an awesome church, bridge, museum, castle, stone wall, historic ruins… whatever.

    I dunno, I think it’d be a bit off to be honest…sorry.

    Surely there’s plenty of other good spots to do it?

    No. A cemetery is a place where people go to bury their loved ones. It’s a pretty sacred space (in my view) not a photoshoot location. I’d be kind of offended if I went to leave flowers and saw someone doing a Rock the Frock shoot.
