A Couple’s Portrait Session is the perfect experience to share with your loved one on Valentine’s Day, from planning your outfits together, to receiving your finished portrait: a visual representation of your love for each other. Of course, true love lives on for the other 364 days of the year as well!  Relationships thrive and grow every day, and any day can be made extra special by commemorating your love in portraiture.

There are so many ways that couples can capture their love on camera. You might consider looking at a few Pinterest boards to get inspired, and find something that really resonates with you and your significant other.

A great way to plan a  couple’s portrait session is to schedule it around a fancy event, like the Salem Masquerade Ball! You and your partner can get the most out of your evening look by capturing it in professional lighting.

Here’s a story about a lovely couple we worked with recently who wanted to create something beautiful together.

Jill is a national rock vocalist in The 1999 Band, marketing guru and Miss Massachusetts finalist. Her beau Matt is an ex military helicopter pilot and current paramedic. They decided to have a Couple’s Portrait session, for many reasons. The result? The truest expression of their love for each other captured in time. The best part however, was the fun they had together in the process.

If you are looking for an excuse to get some fresh and beautiful portraits with your significant other, we have a few you can borrow 🙂



The Couple’s Portrait Session Experience


Having fun planning and plotting something emotionally intimate together.

Jill and Matt spent a great deal of time plotting and planning a session that would capture some of their most intimate emotions. A major requirement for this session was to have some fun. Planning a portrait session should never feel forced or stressful. The goal of a couple’s portrait is to capture your love in it’s truest form, and this begins as you and your partner plot out the perfect look and feel for your portraits.


Sharing their feelings about each other visually.

Through images, Jill and Matt wanted to visually show their friends, colleagues and families how they felt about each other. Each photograph made a statement that accomplished this in some way. True love is too deep and complex to express in words, so a portrait session is the perfect way to create a visual representation of your timeless love.

Collaboration with the Photographer.

Once you have your inspiration, it’s time to start brainstorming with the photographer.  The consultation and planning session is one of the most important meetings. This is where we will decide the look and feel of your contemporary portrait, and translate your ideas into a session plan, including posing, lighting, wardrobe, and attitude.

Jill and Matt collaborated with Louise and found their inspiration from editorial, magazine styled portraits. Vanity Fair, Vogue, and Annie Leibovitz were heavy influencers as well. Their ideas intersected amazingly with Louise’s. Establishing an emotional, trusted and productive relationship between client and photographer is a key ingredient to an awesome session.


An excuse to get some awesome outfits.

Any portrait session is a fantastic excuse to snag a few outfits to fatten up the closet. Intentional styling always brings a portrait to the next level, and it allows you to express yourself in a whole new way! Jill and Matt had a very clear vision for the look and feel of their portraits. After some collaboration with Louise, it became clear that a few new garments were required. No one complained about that!


The session was a success.

Our session with Jill and Matt was a total success. We captured the fun, glamour, sensuality and connection that this couple shares. In the end, their love was forever captured in time, and they created beautiful memories together in the process.

Don’t wait any longer to schedule a Couple’s Portrait Session for you and your loved one! Find your inspiration, and work with us to create something which will bring many smiles and memories for years to come.
