An engaged couple on Acorn Street taking engagement photos in Boston can be cliche, but it's so pretty! Acorn Street is one of the most amazing places to shoot couples in Boston.
Acorn Street is actually one of the most photographed places in the state of Massachusetts. Though in late 2018 the owners that live on Acorn Street worked hard to make it a private way to keep photographers off their street. To use Acorn Street for photography they did try and start a permit requirement, but I can no longer find the website, and I believe they disbanded the Acorn Street Association. The residents of Acorn Street do ask that you move through the street quickly and quietly and understand that it IS a residential street. It receives a LOT of extra traffic due to social media, and if you plan a visit, please do so respectfully.
The street is very Boston. It has the cobble stones, the American Flag, and the brick work. The soil in Boston was littered with stones they called "Cob" . Since the soil had so many they had to figure out what to do, and thus began using the Cob to make streets we now know as Cobblestones. In the 1980s the residents made the street a private way to keep the city from paving it.
As much as the cobblestones are an amazing part of the street, You also can't forget the amazing street lights. I think these have since been converted from gas to electric. Nestled right in the heart of Beacon Hill. It's not the most easy to get to spot by car, so it's best you go on foot!
I have found Acorn street (nestled right in the heart of Beacon Hill) provides a fall backdrop when people are wearing jeans and boots. It's a cute stop for anyone walking around Boston, looking for Cheers!
