101 Valentines Day photo shoot ideas:

  1. Hanging out in a park: It’s hard to beat when it comes to taking photos in nature. Photographing in an empty field or park will yield excellent results with minimal effort on your part. If you’re really looking to up the ante, get some hot chocolate ready at home and whisk yourself over to the park for this Valentine’s day photoshoot idea.

  1. Let’s go for a drive: We all love to get in the car and pretend we’re having an adventure. This can easily be turned into a romantic photoshoot to remember! You don’t even have to drive anywhere; just pulling up at your favorite lookout spot will do. You can take photos from the car and then edit them together later.
  1. Let’s make our own food: Ever had something you’ve really wanted to cook but were too nervous to make? Now is your chance! Come up with some recipes together and then make them in front of the camera! It’ll be fun, it’ll be more personal, plus it’ll give you some fantastic pictures.
  1. Let’s go to the movies: Grab your significant other and head to the theater. Find out what movie is showing and then get all dressed up to watch it! Your photographer will love creating photos of you both in costume (and maybe even while watching the movie).

  1. Let’s get a pet: The pet photoshoot idea is an easy one that anyone can do. Taking photos of your pets will give you some beautiful memories together over time, and it doesn’t require any special equipment at all!
  1. Let’s get a dog: Pets are adorable and make for great photos! You can obviously do this for cats, but dogs are so much cuter. It doesn’t matter who’s got the bigger budget; you can take pictures of your pup in the most adorable way ever.
  1. Let’s go to a dinner party: This might seem like a lot easier in movies, but dinner parties aren’t always as perfect as you might think! Your photographer will need to be prepared with some good photoshop skills, and then you’ll be ready to have some fantastic photos.
  1. Let’s go to a dance class: If you’re neglecting your fitness routine or just haven’t taken it to the dance floor in quite a while, the gym might not be the best place to try this one out. But if you have the space and time, it could be fun! You can take some photos of you dancing together, then edit them to look like professional photos.

  1. Let’s make some jewelry: Ring in the new year with some beautiful jewelry! This is a great idea for couples who are really struggling with setting limits on spending money on sparkly things. Be creative; do something that can be made from inexpensive materials and still look spectacular!
  1. Let’s make some cookies: If you love baking and making cookies with your significant other, this is a great photo idea. Maybe you can even bake them together! The possibilities here are endless, but we’re sure you’ll come up with something amazing!
  1. Let’s go to a big city: We all have fond memories of our childhood trips to the big cities. Whether it was just for the sake of having fun or because we were going on an adventure, this idea is great for any couple. It’s also an excellent opportunity to relive some old memories together.
  1. Let’s make some play dough: It doesn’t get much cuter than playdough, and it’s a lot of fun to play with. The possibilities are endless as far as modeling goes, and you don’t even need any special materials!
  1. Let’s go to the beach: We all love going to the beach. This can be done on a warm day or on a chilly one. If it’s not winter, then dress in your warmest things so that you can have some fun together in the water!
  1. Let’s go to a museum: Museums are regularly set up for couples who are looking for some bonding time and special photos. For example, some of these ideas include taking photos of you together in a displayed exhibit or even being in an art museum with each other.
  1.  Let’s go to a restaurant: No matter which cuisine you like, whether it’s Italian or Mexican, there’s certainly something for everyone! It doesn’t matter if you have reservations or not; just grab your camera and get ready to take some pictures of the foods you’re both enjoying.
  1. Let’s go shopping: If neither you nor your partner is particularly fashion-forward, then this might be a little harder to pull off! Still, with a bit of planning, it can be successful. Make sure you’re both wearing something you’re comfortable in and show off your fashionable skills!
  1. Let’s go to a (quiet) bar: This is a fantastic idea if you’re both looking to relax and spend some quality time together. You’ll have to make sure it’s not too busy, or you’ll risk being the center of attention. But if the bartender agrees, get that bellini ready!
  1.  Let’s go camping: There are a lot of options for this one! It can be just for a weekend, or maybe even just for one night. If you do decide on spending the night out in nature, make sure your camera is charged and grab some extra batteries.
  1. Let’s take some photos in a (new) place: This suggestion is sort of similar to the adventure one, except you don’t have to go anywhere far away! Just head down the road to a new, interesting location and have some fun taking photos together.
  1. Let’s get a tattoo: This is an excellent idea if you both want something that expresses how you feel about each other, or just what your relationship means to each of you in general. There are plenty of artists who are willing to get together with the couple and create something truly special!

  1. Let’s enter a photo contest: There are hundreds of great photo contests out there, and any couple can enter one together. You can either find some online competitions or get in touch with the photographer directly to show off your skills.
  1.  Let’s go on a date: Although it seems like it’d be really difficult, it really isn’t! Of course, you’ll have to plan ahead and make sure everything is set up well in advance so that you both know what to do on the day (or night).
  1. Let’s go on a date: We mentioned it above, but in case you didn’t notice we’re totally serious! If you’re not feeling confident doing a full-on photoshoot at the same time, just go on a casual date together and try to come up with some creative ideas.
  1.  Let’s go out dancing: It’s not as hard as it seems to get down and get a little bit creative with your moves! But make sure you don’t overdo it; you might want your photographer to catch some of the fun in addition to some amazing pictures!
  1.  Let’s go hiking: Hiking is an excellent idea for couples who are looking for something really low-key. This can be done in the woods, in your own town, or even close to home. And don’t forget to bring some water along with you!
  1. Let’s go to the movies: This is another great idea for spending some quality time together and getting a little creative with your poses. Make sure you get there early so that you can enjoy some popcorn and choose the perfect seats!
  1. Let’s go rollerblading: It doesn’t matter how old you are; people still love skating on skates! You can take photos in a park or down a busy street; it all depends on where you feel comfortable. Be careful, though – this is not an easy activity!
  1.  Let’s go to the beach: Sometimes people find it hard to get together with their significant other, especially if they live far apart! This idea solves that problem in a unique way by bringing the beach to you.
  1. Let’s go out for drinks: Ever wanted a cute picture of your first couple of drinks together? Well now is your chance! This is an excellent idea for any age group and can be done at any bar or restaurant you can get into.
  1. Let’s explore some street art: Street art is a new-found trend that continues to be extremely popular. There are always some new paintings and installations to be seen all over the city! Go out together and find some art you both like.
  1. Let’s take a day trip: This can be a lot of fun, but it does take some planning. You’ll have to choose a place that’s close to home or where you don’t mind going far for. If possible, try to make it somewhere scenic!
  1.  Let’s go hiking: Just like the previous idea, this one is low-key but still fun and creative. Find a good trail near your home or your partner’s home (or a location in between) and get going!
  1. Let’s go explore your city: If you’re both from the same area, then this is an excellent way to get acquainted with the city. If you don’t know where to start, try finding an event or a festival going on in your city at the time, or check out local art galleries.
  1. Let’s go to the zoo: This can be fun for children if they’re old enough! However, if you’re hoping for some more adult photos then don’t worry; there are plenty of places at zoos that are designed specifically for adults. Choose a place where you can be together and still get some animal shots.
  1. Let’s go 4-wheeling: If you’ve both got the skills and know your helmets and safety gear, then head out on the trail together! This can be extremely fun and will make for some very unique photos. Make sure to take plenty of water and wear appropriate clothes.
  1. Let’s have a picnic: Picnics are great quality-time activities, but they’re also lovely ways to get creative with your photos. You’ll need to make sure you bring everything with you, including an umbrella if it’s raining out!
  1. Let’s take the train: If you’re both in a larger city, this might be an option for some new photos. And although it can be fun and adventurous, it’s also easy to get lost! So make sure to check out the map and directions ahead of time!
Let's take the train
  1. Let’s go camping: If you enjoy nature but don’t want to get far from home, then this is a great location for outdoor shots. Check out other hiking trails in your area or head out into the woods away from civilization.
  1.  Let’s go skiing: Another great idea if you’re close and want to spend some time together. And even better if you can both ski! Just be careful on the slopes, and don’t forget to take a ton of pictures!
  1.  Let’s take a boat ride: This is another great option if you enjoy nature but don’t want to get too far from home. Plus, it’s more comfortable than going camping! Make sure you bring plenty of water and snacks since it can be hard to find food out on open water.
  1. Let’s go to the beach: Although this was featured above as well, it makes an appearance on the list again because so many people enjoy being by the beach and taking photos! And if you’re worried about getting sand everywhere, don’t be – it can easily be cleaned off later.
  1. Let’s go look at some art: This can include anything from modern sculptures at a museum to paintings in an art gallery. It all depends on what you like. And why not try to find some other couples who are going to be there at the same time – you might capture some unique photos together!
  1. Let’s go hiking: This is one of the most popular ideas here, so it obviously deserves its own entry! But it also has another option if you’re worried about the weather, which is using an umbrella. Just make sure that your pictures end up looking great and that they look like the outdoors should!
  1. Let’s go to an amusement park together: This is a great idea for people who are comfortable with roller coasters, and of course you’ll need to be willing to take a lot of pictures while you’re there! You should also bring a waterproof camera just in case it rains.
  1.  Let’s go bike riding: If you both like cycling or even if you don’t, this can be a lot of fun! Be careful on the road, though – you want your bike ride to end well!

  1.  Let’s go to a summer festival: Summer festivals are a blast, and when you’re there with the one you love it’s even more fun. Try to find festivals that are going on in the middle of the week if possible so that they’re not too busy.
  1.  Let’s kayak together: This can be a lot of fun and great for some unique photos! If you don’t know how to kayak, don’t worry – just ask someone who does or watch some videos online. And another option is to strongly consider renting a kayak and bringing it along with you.
  1. Let’s go backpacking: This is another great idea for lovers, but it can be difficult and dangerous if you’re not experienced in the woods! Be sure to check out warnings from people who have been on trails that may be difficult to navigate.
  1. Let’s go rock climbing: This may not be the most relaxing thing to do, but it’s certainly a lot of fun! You can find plenty of climbing gyms in your area or branch out and go somewhere that has cliffs you can climb or rocks you can climb on.
  1. Let’s go hiking: This is a great option for both partners who have relatively easy hiking skills, but you’ll need to make sure that the weather is fine for outdoor shots. You can also choose to go ice-skating if you’d rather, or if you don’t want the photos to be in nature.
  1. Let’s go ziplining: This is a great idea for adventurous couples, but you do need to watch out for fast-moving parts that could hurt you. Don’t forget to bring a waterproof camera just in case!
  1. Let’s go to a diner: This is a great idea for couples who enjoy spending time together and will make for some unique photos. Make sure to bring your camera, even if you’re using your phone – the lighting is perfect for photos!
  1. Let’s go play mini-golf: This can be a lot of fun and a great way to get creative with your photos! Try taking photos from unexpected angles or under cloth – you just never know what might work!
  1.  Let’s go geocaching: This is a great way to get outside and spend some time with your partner while searching for tiny treasures. Make sure to bring snacks, water, and your camera!
  1. Let’s go bowling: This is another great idea for couples who like spending time together and will make for some unique photos. Be sure you have a specific place in mind before heading out – there are plenty of bowling alleys around the country!
  1. Let’s go stargazing: This is a great way to spend time together while getting some unique photos! Just make sure you have a place to park and that you’re far away from the city so that there aren’t any lights nearby.
  1. Let’s go on a road trip: This can be great if you’re planning to be gone for a long time, but it can also be fun for a few hours or even just an afternoon. Make sure you know where you’re going and which route you’ll take before leaving to ensure that you don’t get lost!
  1. Let’s go backpacking: This can be a lot of fun, but it requires some experience if your goal is to camp out in the woods and find true adventure. You’ll want to make sure to bring plenty of water, food, and well-made gear so that you can safely explore the woods.
  1. Let’s go to a drive-in: This is a great option for anyone who doesn’t want to be in the city for their date and will make for some unique photos. You may also want to bring blankets or pillows – sometimes you can get cold at a drive-in movie!
  1. Let’s watch the sunset: This can be an amazing experience and a great way to spend time together, plus it provides unique photo opportunities. Check out the weather before heading out, though – if it looks like it’s going to rain or storm, you may want to stay in and have a romantic night in instead.

  1. Let’s go to the park: This is a great idea for couples who are comfortable with one another, but it can also be a lot of fun even if you’re not! Just make sure that your park is safe and well-lit so that you can get some beautiful pictures without any shadows or people in them!
  1.  Let’s go to a waterfall: This is a great idea for couples who love nature and will make for some unique photos! Just make sure that you take extra precautions to tell each other about any dangerous areas or waterfalls where you may fall.
  1.  Let’s go camping: This has been said before, but it’s certainly worth mentioning again – camping can be a lot of fun, especially with your partner. Just be aware that you might not have any cell phone connection, however.
  1.  Let’s go to the beach: This is another great idea for couples who love the water or at least aren’t afraid of getting wet! As with camping, you may have no cell phone reception, so just make sure to keep your camera and other important items close by.
  1. Let’s go to the movies: This is a great idea for couples who love watching movies and will make for some unique photos, but be aware that you may have to adjust your plans if you end up in a crowded theater on a weekend.
  1. Let’s go to an amusement park: This can be a lot of fun but does require some planning ahead of time – you’ll want to talk about where you want to go and how much it will cost before going so that there are no surprises.
  1.  Let’s go to a museum: Museums are great because they are free (usually) and can provide unique photo opportunities. You’ll just want to make sure that you don’t step on any of the exhibits!
  1.  Let’s go to a concert: This is another great idea for couples who love music and will make for some unique photos, but be sure that you bring a camera, even if your phone has one built in. Cell phones don’t always capture the best pictures at concerts.
  1. Let’s go to a fair: This is another great idea for couples who love to spend time together and will make for some unique photos. You may want to bring some money or food with you, but it’s still recommended that you check around first to find out what events are happening at the fair.
  1.  Let’s go ice skating: This is a great idea for adventurous couples and can be done at many different locations around the country. Just make sure that you have a sturdy surface to skate on and that you’re comfortable with your partner before getting on the ice.
  1. Let’s go horseback riding: This is a great idea for couples who love spending time in nature and will make for some unique photos. Just be sure that you have working riding gear before heading out and only ride with people who know what they’re doing – otherwise, you could get seriously injured!
  1.  Let’s go to a restaurant: This is another great way to spend time together and can be done anywhere, even if you have no experience with cooking. Just keep in mind that the food might not be very good and that it’s often kosher or vegetarian which can make some dishes inaccessible.
  1. Let’s go to the mall: This is a great option for couples who love shopping and will make for some unique photos, but it may not always be the best idea since there are many people walking around.
  1.  Let’s go out dancing: This is another good idea for couples who like to dance and will make for some unique photos. Just make sure that you’re comfortable with one another and bring your music if you decide to dance!
  1. Let’s go camping at night: This is a great idea for adventurous couples but can be dangerous if you’re not familiar with the area or the camping equipment you’re using. Make sure to tell your date about any potential risks and that you have extra flashlights and fire-starting equipment.

  1. Let’s stay in and watch a movie: This is a great idea for couples who love movies and will make for some unique photos, but be aware that you may end up watching the movie more than once!
  1. Let’s go to church together: This can be especially fun if you’re attending a church or temple together because it will allow you to explore your faith and make it more important in your lives. You’ll need to keep in mind, however, that not everyone will approve of this choice of date night.
