And Valentines Day is the perfect time to celebrate love since it is a holiday devoted to love and couples. 

History of Valentines Day

Origins of Valentine’s Day: A Pagan Festival in February

According to Wikipedia, While some believe that Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the middle of February to commemorate the anniversary of Valentine’s death or burial—which probably occurred around A.D. 270—others claim that the Christian church may have decided to place St. Valentine’s feast day in the middle of February in an effort to “Christianize” the pagan celebration of Lupercalia. Celebrated at the ides of February, or February 15, Lupercalia was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, as well as to the Roman founders Romulus and Remus.

The festival involved the sacrifice of an animal for fertility and purification. It also involved gently slapping women because it was believed to make them more fertile in the coming year. The festival ended with bachelors choosing the celebrated women and being pared with them for the year which often ended in marriage.

What types of Valentines Day Photos Should You Do with Your Loved One

If the main goal for a photoshoot on Valentines Day is to celebrate your love, then you should start with a Couples Family Portrait. See examples of a family portrait by clicking the link above. We style them based on your preferences representing you as a family, so the final look and feel can be styled in a way that celebrates you the best. A typical family photo shoot can be done in studio or outside and it can include your children, your furry children, pets, and everyone that you consider family.

The other type of a couples Valentines Day photoshoot you can do is a Heritage Portrait otherwise known as a Heritage Photoshoot. This is a fine-art magazine-style portrait that is custom-designed for you. It is a themed photoshoot and includes props and clothing that celebrates your heritage and ancestors. This can be your heritage or that of your partner. It is not an exact replica but a fine-art portrait so it allows us to be very creative in the way we use the props especially if we are combining several ancestral lineage lines at the same time.

The third kind of Valentines’ Day Photoshoot is a Couples boudoir photoshoot for you and for your loved one. Boudoir Photoshoot is mainly captured of women alone, but in our studio Allie Serrano Portraits often include her partner and we love capturing the couple together. The two have a lot of fun being photographed together in a romantic and sensual way, and it often creates a lot of sparks between the couple.

What will the valentines day Photoshoot Include

It all comes down to what kind of a photoshoot you select and what photographer will offer. With Allie Serrano Portraits the luxury photoshoot experience includes a 2-hour photoshoot fully guided by a professional photographer Allie Serrano, a 30-minute facial at Nova Beauty Center located in South Tampa, a makeover by a professional makeup artist, hair styling, multiple outfit changes, and a credit towards your images along with wall art as well as a folio box or an album. At the very least, if your goal is to celebrate each other, you should plan to get a wall art or the Boudoir Album with images from your photoshoot.

Again, different photographers will offer different experiences so be sure to read the fine print and ask many questions. The goal is for you to have fun and be relaxed when you are being photographed.

Don’t just let the digitals exist on your computer. You are celebrating each other so let it be known that your love is strong and the best way to do that is with a wall art piece hanging of your wall of you and your partner.

How do you select the best photographer near you for couples Valentines Day Photoshoot
