Valentine’s Day is on its way, and you might want to show that special someone how much you care by presenting them with a photo album. Getting a picture taken with your special someone is a great way to celebrate how much you love one another. There are a few things to consider as you plan the perfect couple’s photo shoot. Think about settings, apparel, lighting, and other variables.
A good photo can be a keepsake that you, as a couple, will cherish forever. Whether it’s an engagement picture or a retirement picture, we all know that a great photo is something you’ll treasure. That’s why it’s important to get it right.
You can start by looking through catalogs at a local photography studio to get some ideas. You can talk with other couples and find out what their favorite photo opportunities are. Talk to your partner—make a list of ideas and types of pictures you want. Do you want affectionate shots? Playful photos? Close-ups? Silhouettes? Take the time to plan it out!
Think about what you’re wearing, too. Choose clothing that is flattering and makes you feel comfortable. Stick with solid colors, and keep jewelry simple so as not to distract from the photo.
When you’re looking for a background for your photo, think about places that hold positive memories for you as a couple. Outdoor shots are always fun! (Be careful, it’s cold out!) Try your favorite restaurant, a playground, or a kitchen. The options are endless.
