Pinterest seems to have the absolute cutest couple aesthetic pictures. They have just the right amount of grain, blur, and the couples seem to be so effortlessly photogenic. If you and your significant other want to have these romantic and candid pictures to add to your photo album, the trick is to purposefully plan a couples photo shoot but make them look candid. These are always the better pictures compared to the posed ones that appear stiff and fake. We’ve collected a few couples photo shoot ideas for you and your S.O.to plan that will capture the feelings you share for each other. Totally cute, and not at all cheesy, cute photoshoot ideas for you to frame, carry with you, or set as your phone wallpaper.
In The Moment
You’re scrolling through your home page of Pinterest seeing all of these adorable pictures of couples and you’re thinking to yourself “Why can’t we have pictures like that?”. But you definitely can. Sometimes people in Pinterest pictures can seem like they are leading a totally unachievable lifestyle and yes, it can be true, but this is one aspect of Pinterest that you can successfully replicate. We call this particular couples photoshoot idea “In the Moment”. The key to achieving this kind of picture is taking candid pictures, or faking it to look like they are candid. Take live pictures on your phones or take a burst, so that you have plenty to choose from and can adjust a picture to the perfect moment you want to keep forever. Like in the picture below, it’s a bit blurry but this is perfect! It shows that you’re truly capturing a moment between you and your S.O. You can totally see how these two feel about each other in the picture. You can have someone sneak pics of you or set it up and do it yourself. Either way, we’re sure that by knowing what type of picture you want to get, and how to do it, then the hard work is over. Before you know it, your camera roll will have the pictures that you actually want, saving all of the memories shared. This cute couples photoshoot idea is inspiring us all to take more pics with our S.O!
When you don’t have a third person to snap pics of you and your partner, a mirror selfie comes in handy. Mirror selfies are no secret to the world, but we’re going to show how you can take both intentional ones and spontaneous ones that you won’t be able to tell the difference between. There are plenty of times where you’ve been walking past a mirror and whipped out your phone to take a cute pic real quick. And this is totally what we mean by the spontaneous kind of shot. Like in the picture below, the guy isn’t facing the camera, so it looks like he doesn’t know it’s there, focusing intently on her. While she is being held by him and carefully takes the pic before the moment has passed. We like this shoot for the different angles and lightning that are possible. It creates a more authentic feel that lacks from a pic where the couple is posing for the camera. The intentional kind of mirror picture where you are purposefully posing for the camera is doable in a good way. To do this cute couples photoshoot idea, you can use the mirror as sort of the person who would be taking the picture. You don’t want to look into the mirror, rather the mirror is there to make visible the moment between the two of you. Posing in a way that seems off guard, and then snapping the pic is key to faking a candid. Keep the camera settings in live and do a burst, so you can keep moving into new poses to eventually get one that doesn’t feel forced. An easy couples photoshoot idea that will help bring to life the pics you two have together!
Pumpkin Head Pics
One really fun couples photoshoot idea we have for you and your S.O. to embrace the fall season is the pumpkin head photo shoot. For this shoot, you’ll need to find a fall setting to create the autumn aesthetic the pictures will have: in the park with a pile of fallen leaves or at your local pumpkin patch. Another idea we have for the location is your living room, but setting it up with all of your favorite spooky Halloween decorations. Set up your shot as if you’re casually cuddling up on the couch, surrounded by tons of Halloween decorations, and of course, pumpkins on your noggins! Super cute, and not a cheesy couples photoshoot idea at all. A great picture to post on the gram to show how you and your partner are celebrating this Halloween season.
The Ghost Trend
The last cute couples photoshoot idea piggybacks off the pumpkin head Halloween trend is the ghost trend from 2020 that we need to bring back. This just might be our favorite couples photoshoot out of all of them! All you need is a white sheet and a pair of sunglasses. We love how people take pictures with movement for this trend. Ask one of your friends to take the pics or make it a double date where you can switch taking pictures for each couple. Some places we think would be so fun to do this trend is in the movie theater, in a restaurant, on the swings at a park, running through the streets of your neighborhood or city. A non-cheesy couples photoshoot idea that will not only leave you with the cutest pictures, but you’ll have lots of fun taking them too! This one has got to be the most fun couples photoshoot idea we have.
