New England is full of gorgeous spots for engagement photos. If you're at a loss for a spot, the first thing to consider is whether there's a local (ish) place that speaks to you both. It could be where you got engaged, a park you visit regularly, a beach you love, or even somewhere quirky and fun (topiary garden; donut shop; town fair; dive bar). Still stumped?
