New Hampshire is a photo taking paradise, but some places throughout the state are especially rich with photo opportunities. Whether you are aiming to capture New Hampshire’s natural beauty and wildlife, or celebrating a special milestone like a birth, wedding or family reunion, these 7 places are photo paradise.
1. Rye Seacoast
New Hampshire’s seacoast is short but dramatic and comes to a head where the rocks meet the surf in Rye. This dramatic backdrop is perfect for photos.
2. The Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge
The longest covered bridge in New Hampshire is quintessential New England, with the backdrop of the Connecticut River and Mount Ascutney in Vermont.
3. The Ice Castles, Lincoln
These frozen fortresses are a one-of-a-kind experience, and will give your photos an ice-queen chill and other-worldly feel.
4. Dixville Notch
The Balsams Resort is currently closed, but that doesn’t mean it can’t make a great backdrop for your photos. The castle-like resort looks like it belongs in the Swiss Alps or a fairy tale, and will give your photos a magical touch.
5. Madame Sherri’s Stairs, Chesterfield
These enchanted remains of a house are the perfect backdrop for portraits.
6. The Swift River
Easily accessible from the Kancamangus highway, The Swift River has waterfalls, foliage, mountain views, and everything else you could want in your New Hampshire photos.
7. Mount Washington Summit
Take your photos from the roof of New England. A few times a year the Mount Washington Auto Road opens before dawn, and tourists can photograph sunrise from the summit.
