Every Client is different. So you deserve to know and understand what kind of vibe or feel you're looking for in a shoot. What kind of location and style you're going for. Light and airy? Dark and gloomy? Romantic? Playful? Everyone has their own style and wants.
That being said, the vibe you want HAS to match your shoot location. You don't want a light and airy shoot in a graveyard. But you do if you're looking for a more, fall, are mono type shoot. You would do it in a garden, by the water, etc. So, I have put a list together of my favorite photo locations in Massachusetts. This way, you can see a bunch of different places in Mass that might be the right place for you.
Endicott Park (Garden) Danvers, MA
Endicott Park in Danvers, MA is one of my favorite places to shoot and I've actually done quite a few there. Now, theres Endicott Park, and then theres another spot there thats MAGICAL. Its not just this building. Theres a whole garden, willow tree, small church, woods, gazebo, and podiums. Its amazing and I defiantly recommend it.
