The Best Winter Engagement Photo Locations in Boston

Top 5 Locations for Enagement Photos - Winter


Create an engagement album that’s memorable, romantic and unique to your winter love story with these inspiring Boston winter engagement photo ideas.

Maybe we’re a little bit biased, but we love Beacon Hill engagement photos in every season, especially in the winter. The historic row houses and brick sidewalks offer true urban charm for the bride- and groom-to-be that would prefer a touch of traditional in their engagement photos. Beacon Hill’s landmark architecture looks ever-so-enchanting after being dusted with a winter snowfall, too.

Boston’s rich history has left residents with a vast assortment of settings for romantic photos, including the opulent Boston Public Library or bustling Quincy Market. Seasonal twinkling lights and decorative evergreens make these Boston landmarks ideal for shooting in the winter.

Tailor your engagement session to your love story with Boston’s full complement of fun and iconic photo locations. If your courtship was sports-centric, take a few snapshots at TD Garden. If you love all things nautical, your seasonal, sea-inspired photo shoot will come alive at Piers Park. Each of these winter photo engagement settings will help you capture the romance and whimsy of Boston.
