A love story photo session is not only a “rehearsal” of a wedding shoot, but also an opportunity to get cool joint shots and try out more daring and unusual ideas. Indeed, unlike the wedding day, at the time of this photo shoot you have much more freedom of action and less time frames! Chanfashion prepared for you a huge portion of inspiration and ideas to make your love story shooting beautiful, sincere and unusual.
But first, a few tips on how to run the perfect love story and not be disappointed with the result:
Individuality. Do not mindlessly copy beautiful pictures from Pinterest — let the photos reflect you. Inspiration can be found in your interests, style, small details of a love story. This makes the shoot more personal.
Naturalness. You can spend a dozen hours on Google looking for tips on “how to pose for a shoot” but still look stiff and lifeless. We advise you to keep a balance between staged photos and random shots caught in motion. They convey real feelings and look bewitching!
Think about the route. Stopping at only one location, you deprive yourself of diversity in ideas. We recommend planning to visit several locations in one shoot. For example, if you are planning a photo shoot in the city, then it is better to make a couple of stops: in a restaurant, in a park and on beautiful streets. So you get a variety of shots in one photo shoot. Ask your wedding photographer for advice on which locations to add to your itinerary and how to properly allocate time for them.

Love Story Photoshoot Ideas
Surrounded by books
A library or bookstore can be an amazing location for an unusual shoot, especially if you’re both book lovers. Read poems to each other, hide between bookshelves, but most importantly — do not make noise 🙂
Alone in the whole room
Red carpets, an empty stage and subdued lights — you can take amazing photos in the opera or theater hall! The majestic hall and architecture will look unusual and mysterious without the usual crowd.
Just look at inspirational shooting of Tatiana and Ivan in the Odessa theater from Anastasia Novoselova, you will definitely want to feel the same atmosphere 🙂
By the water
Which of the brides has not thought about a wedding on the beach at least once? The whisper of the surf, warm sand and the setting sun are the perfect backdrop for your personal fairy tale. But if a wedding by the sea doesn’t suit you due to geography, limited budget or difficulties in organizing, then a love story on the coast will be a great compromise!
If there is no sea nearby, a river, lake or reservoir will do. Surely a wedding photographer will be able to suggest a successful water location in your area.
An imitation of a hike with gatherings around a fire with a guitar or a fairy tale story about a forest nymph in love — choose the style you like, because in the forest you can find a place for almost any style. And the most important thing is that a suitable location can be found in every region and it doesn’t matter at all whether you live in a metropolis or a small village! But watch out for insects 🙂

In the field, you can make wonderful shots in the style of Boho or Rustic — the atmosphere of freedom, lightness and ease is guaranteed to you. Choose a light, flowing cotton dress or a loose shirt and a natural make-up. Also don’t forget to wear a sunhat, because hiding from the rays can be problematic! To diversify your photos, put together a bouquet of wild flowers or even weave a wreath of ears of corn for you.
Also, a field of sunflowers or poppies will be a wonderful location for a photo shoot.
If suburban locations are not for you, then immerse yourself in the romance of the city! Wonderful shots can be taken both on narrow old streets, near new skyscrapers, and even near abandoned buildings and walls with graffiti. There is a place for any style in the city!
In the restaurant you can not only arrange a date, but also hold a photo session. And it’s better to combine both 🙂 When choosing a venue for shooting a love story, pay attention to the lighting — it should be enough for high-quality shots. Also pay attention to the style of the interior and the workload of the restaurant at the time when you plan to hold a love story photo session.
Don’t let bad weather spoil your mood before shooting a love story! When it rains, you can get amazing unusual photos. Take a beautiful umbrella with you or completely ignore annoying drops, paying attention only to each other. The main thing is to think about waterproof makeup and not worry too much about the hairstyle 🙂
It’s time to remember your childhood 🙂 It may not be possible to take beautiful shots on a roller coaster, but they will cheer you up and set you in the right mood. But the French carousel, Ferris wheel, popcorn and cotton candy will be a great addition to your love story.
Don’t forget to stop at a large supermarket if you want to get funny photos in a cart full of sweets or have a pillow fight while hiding from the consultants. In addition, you can find a lot of free props, good lighting and bright colors for the background 🙂
A chic convertible, wind in your hair and elegant suits — that’s the whole recipe for a photo shoot with gloss. And an unusual retro car will help create a vintage atmosphere. Don’t forget high gloves, a headscarf and red lipstick!

To show feelings, it is not necessary to be sophisticated with the location and images, because you can arrange a home photo shoot even in knitted socks from granny 🙂 If you show tenderness in typical everyday situations, not paying much attention to the photographer, you will get a very cozy and sincere shooting.
Kissing on the roof overlooking the sunset city — truly breathtaking photos! At the same time, completely different images are suitable for such a shoot: jeans and rough boots emphasize the industrial character of the location, and a delicate long dress with a train fluttering in the wind can create a stunning contrast. The main thing is to follow all the precautions!
Pets quickly become not only our friends, but also a full-fledged part of the family. If your pet occupies an important place in your life, then you can involve him in shooting a love story! It is much easier than taking it with you to the ceremony or the whole wedding day: the animal will not be stressed by a large crowd of people and noise, and you will be able to take touching photos of your little family 🙂
If you want your pet to become a full-fledged participant in your wedding, then read our tips in the article. “Pet at the wedding: what to consider?”
If you love — feed 🙂 You can make funny photos with food: feed each other, smear ice cream on your faces or repeat the frame from the cartoon “Lady and the Tramp”! Do not be afraid to look funny or ridiculous, because on the contrary it seems very cute in the photo.
An exciting activity will help you relax if you are not used to the camera lens and feel constrained. Cooking, drawing, sculpting, dancing — choose whatever your heart desires, and then enjoy natural and dynamic photos 🙂
Garlands can transform not only the wedding location, but also your photos. When dusk falls, use luminous garlands in shooting: they will give atmosphere and unusual lighting to romantic shots.
