Oh, just saw the date in your post, so the Swan Boats are out, because they won’t be there until April.  But the State House is still a great option, and on Boston Common, there is the “Make way for the Ducklings” statue that is pretty adorable and could provide some whimsical shots.

March is still going to be very wintery here in Boston so you might want to have an indoor backup wherever you go.

You could do shots in Copley Square and indoor shots in the BPL and the Fairmont Copley Plaza or even the Back Bay Train Station.

You could head down the North End for a more colonial historical backdrop and use one of the coffee shops as an indoor backup.

Harvard and MIT have some interesting buildings inside and out!

Have fun!

Boston Common is right across the street from the Public Gardens, if your doing it in March, they may still have skating at Frog Pond. I saw an awesome shoot there!

I agree with The Boston Public Library. Especially if it’s cold out.

Museum of science is always a fun place to shoot.  Do you already have a photog picked out?  Have you talked to them about it?

Oh we love to shoot walking around the North End as well!

Good Luck, post the picks when you get them I would love to see! 🙂

I love the Waterfront parks, and by the Boston Harbor Hotel.  Great backdrop!  Christopher Columbus Park in the North End and various places on the Greenway are gorgeous too!  The Public Garden and Common would be nice, but a little barren given that it is still pretty cold/wintery here.  The State House could be beautiful, and Beacon Hill has lots of fun streets/buildings that could be neat! 

Best of luck!  🙂

I agree with the Common/Garden as first priority.  I also think a stroll down Newbury St would be a cool backdrop… maybe sit on the steps of a brownstone?  Lean on a street light?  Yes, I’m a bit of a romantic. 🙂  I also think pictures in one of the T stops would be cute ~ esp in front of a large T map.  Very Boston!!

If you want to cross the river into Cambridge, Central Sq. has an awesome ally way with a street art/graffiti wall.  It’s very colorful and wimsical and is constently changing.  I would also suggest the Arnold Arburetum in Forest Hills (end of the orange line).  It is a large park area with lots or rare trees and flower species.  It’s especially beautiful in the springtime.

 We did ours in the Public Gardens and on Charles Street (right across from the Common on Beacon Hill), which is a very “Boston” little street with brick and cobblestone alleys.

We did ours on the waterfront, Christopher Columbus Park, Fanueil Hall, then took the T to Fenway.  The T pics are my favorite ones.  There are some great ones of us on the escalator, sitting on the green line and in the stations.

I think the North End and waterfront would be perfect!

I love the North End idea!

I also suggest Harvard Square or Charlestown (which is right near N. Station).

@MsTerrapin:  I actually really like the suggestion of the state house.  What a beautiful backdrop
