St. Petersburg is filled with so many locations. We’ve got the city downtown, the beaches towards the west and beautiful parks in-between. It can be difficult to weed down or figure out what location might be best for your photo shoot.
Luckily for you, scouting locations is kinda my favorite. Though this blog is geared towards couples and families – if you follow my social media – you know that I photograph a lot of real estate. With this comes the opportunity to explore a bunch of neighborhoods around town.
Now you’re probably thinking “How am I ever going to pick?” Well, that’s where I come in.
I like to think of photography as a collaborative processes, were we’re working together to make and take awesome images. With this comes collaboration on locations. When we sit and talk about our session I’ll ask questions about first dates or places that make you feel ‘at home’ or inspired. From there we can start to game plan ideas on locations that are truly unique to you.
Here are a few unique locations that might be awesome for your photo shoot:
Downtown St. Pete is busy, ecletic, and has many artistic sites. It could be the perfect location for a photo shoot. There are plenty of green spaces, waterfront views, marinas, picnic sites and museums. There are a lot of spots to choose from!
Sawgrass Lake Park is another option, it’s a hidden gem in Tampa Bay full of beautiful spots for photo ops. With boardwalks, picnic areas, plenty of wildlife viewing, there are endless possibilities for a great spot for a photo shoot.

The Sunken Gardens located in St. Petersburg is a 4 acre beauty of botanical gardens, and is one of the oldest tourist attractions in the U.S. It’s lush, secluded, and a beautiful place to not only take photos, but to walk through.
Treasure Island is another beach beauty. At just 3 miles long, there is an abundance of beautiful spots to stop at. Between the blue water, the white sand, and sunsets galore, you won’t be disappointed in this spot.
USF Tampa is a hidden gem in the heart of Tampa. Aside from taking college photos you might not think of it for a photo shoot.
