6 Romantic Photoshoot Ideas

Whether to celebrate an engagement or simply reaffirm your love, a romantic photoshoot can be a fantastic gift to one another. You don’t have to wait for a special occasion to book yourself in! The images can be a private memento, or something to share with friends and family. You can even use them as the main image for printed wedding or engagement party invitations.

Let’s take a look at some of the best romantic photoshoot ideas here. If you like the sound of any of them, be sure to get in touch or book in for a session of your own.

1. Take a stroll on the beach

The beach is one of those archetypal romantic locations that everyone can identify with. Especially if you are regular beach goers yourselves, or spent an early date there, this can be a great spot. We are lucky to have some really picturesque beaches in Kent, so it’s perfect to set up a romantic photoshoot. 

Shooting in warm weather is best for this idea, so you can sit down on the sand together and relax. You may even take a step into the waves for a more carefree image. Holding hands as you walk and laugh together can create a natural and beautiful image too.

2. Take it to the bedroom

You don’t both have to take part for the shoot to be romantic. Ladies can book in for a boudoir shoot to get their partner’s heart racing. Sexy lingerie, or even a little nudity, can create private images he will want to look at again and again. You may also find this kind of shoot to be a real confidence booster!

We can create a beautiful boudoir in your own bedroom, or book out a hotel room with luxurious fittings. The only important thing you need to bring is a smile! Moody and dark or bright and flirty - either way, he’s sure to treasure this photoshoot.

3. Spell out your love

Incorporating hand written signs, carved wooden words, or symbols into your shoot  can express your sentiments perfectly. Holding one between you will affirm your love for all time, or you can each hold your own to match.
Using props in this way can also help you to relax. Try to think about what the phrase, word, or symbol means to you during the shoot. This will shine through in the final images. It’s a great way to help take the focus off you a little if you are feeling nervous.

4. Announce a new arrival

Holding a family based shoot is a really popular option for those who are expecting. We shoot everything in sets of three (or four if this is your second arrival). Two feet plus a pair of baby shoes, two smiling faces and a ready space for a third - you can even bring toys or clothes ready for your little one to complete the picture. 

If you are looking for a creative way to announce a pregnancy, this is also a great idea. Just post the photos online or send them out as cards to let everyone know!

5. Visit your favourite place

Is there a location that means something special to you? The place where you had your first date, perhaps? Maybe even your home? Whatever that meaningful place is, it may be a great location for a photoshoot.

This is the place where you have the best memories - a place which represents your relationship. It’s a symbolic representation of your love for each other. Choosing to shoot here can immortalise that special place for you. It will even make the photoshoot itself that much more special.

6. Have fun and be silly

If you bring out each other’s inner child, don’t be afraid to show it. A romantic photoshoot doesn’t have to be serious! Let go and enjoy yourself. Not only will this allow you to have a better time during the shoot itself, but you will also have great, genuine images at the end.

You could pull matching silly faces, or pick out matching fancy dress outfits. Get some paint and rub it on each other’s faces. Have a giggle together in the studio! If your relationship is fun and relaxed, then there is no reason why your photoshoot shouldn’t be too.
