Prom Picture Ideas


Teens will style and profile in high fashion for prom, and the pictures that accentuate the sophistication of the night are key factors to such a memorable event. Teens want their prom pictures to be as unique as their attire, and noticeably the coolest in comparison to everyone else's. Below are several prom picture ideas for locations and backgrounds that provide a contrast which will emphasize the elegance of the occasion.

Hotel Lobby or Banquet Room

  • There are many locations that compliment the classiness and style of formal attire. Consider taking pictures at a banquet room of a local upscale hotel. Fine hotels typically have elegant lobbies that provide a "rich" appeal. One doesn't have to worry about decorating or cleaning because these venues are always ready to impress their guests.

Shopping Mall

  • Many shopping malls have beautiful indoor foliage, water fountains, and lighted tree-scapes that lend a hand to stylish, graceful and photogenic captures. Shopping malls are also a great place for fun shots using mannequins and window displays. Be sure to ask for permission prior to picture-taking.

Pictures at Home

  • The home of either attendee offers a personal appeal, and pictures can be taken both inside and outside, weather permitting. Depending on where everyone meets and how many will be in the prom party, the home is a good place for pictures to be taken with the limo.


  • In many states, the Department of Transportation plants seasonal flowers and wildflowers along major highways and interstates. These natural areas can provide colorful shots resulting in unique prom pictures. If you elect to take pictures near heavy traffic areas, use extreme caution.

Outdoor Gardens

  • Outdoor gardens, gates, rustic buildings and paths are ideal areas to take prom pictures. Gardens provide natural beauty and the sophisticated attire of the guys and girls are enhanced by natural scapes and rustic structures.


  • Lakes, bridges, streams and waterfalls provide excellent backgrounds for prom poses. Whether you choose serious poses or the fun and whimsical, these backgrounds conform to either style. Girls with long dresses and extended trains should take precautions to avoid soiling their dresses.

Train Tracks


  • Teens that live near the beach have numerous options to obtain gorgeous prom pictures. The ocean, a park, a pier, lighthouses and any theme park can provide unique alternatives to traditional prom pictures.
