Starlight Ranch–a private oasis of Joshua Trees in Yucca Valley, CA, has an old-fashioned tent and a cute tub made from a livestock trough in the yard. The host describes it as “a rustic yet cozy space perched amidst the backdrop of Joshua Trees and breath-taking sunsets. A one-of-a-kind experience in nature. Expansive, secluded forest of Joshua Trees behind the backyard. Amazing sunsets! Entertainer’s dream backyard with outdoor bar and cooking area.”

The host also notes that they are happy to take requests, so let your imagination run wild. While here, pose in the cowboy tub, in the Jacuzzi, beneath the overhead misters, and within the tent. It’s a versatile space that would make a fun and quirky setting for your Sweet 16 photoshoot ideas!

4. A creepy dollhouse Sweet 16

You may not have experienced the 1980’s first hand, but this next Peerspace venue will introduce you to the decade’s less savory side! This venue in Chicago is The Dollhouse–1980’s photoshoot location in Wicker Park and is a little creepier than our others so far. “The Dollhouse was designed to be as nostalgic, creepy, and cheesy as the 1980s. One side of The Dollhouse mimics a teenager’s bedroom, while the other is a murderous, doll-filled dungeon. Utilize this space for your next film, music video, or photoshoot to give your content a nostalgic – and terrifying – edge!”

If you pride yourself on having an edgier character than most, then this studio may be ideal for your Sweet 16 shot. It’s definitely a more grown-up slant on the traditional dollhouses we all played with as children!

5. A jet-set Sweet 16

Are you a Sweet 16 to-be who aspires to a jet-set lifestyle? Then this unique private jet studio in Chamblee, GA is for you! It “is the first and most affordable mockup jet photo / film set in Atlanta. This pre-lit jet interior features a sliding door to cockpit, a cabin with two 1-person single swivel reclining seats, and a 4-6 person semi-circular sectional couch allowing total 8 passenger seating.”

The host also offers additional add-on services, like a fog machine, Bluetooth speaker, and a continuous lighting kit. Overall, it would make a memorable venue for a Sweet 16 photoshoot, especially when you’re going places.

6. Rockabilly airstream Sweet 16

This Atlanta tiki Airstream oasis would be a fun Rockabilly-style photoshoot location for a Sweet 16. The description is inviting: “Welcome to our little mid-century tiki hideaway. We’re tucked away surrounded by banana trees just minutes from Atlanta. This rare 1956 airstream has been decorated to bring you back to the 50’s while sipping your favorite tropical drink. There’s a large outdoor sitting area with a firepit and plenty of room to relax.” What a fun throwback theme for a photoshoot.

A just check out what a Peerspace reviewer shared after booking this space for a production: “I cannot give enough praise about this place. Andrew and his family were very welcoming and accommodating. They have transferred their backyard into a mid-century, tiki oasis. Even cooler than the photos imply. Highly recommended for your next photo shoot or production. I know we will be back!”

7. Neon desert Sweet 16

This is a photography studio desert set dripping in neon in Dallas, Texas for your cowgirl Sweet 16 photoshoot. The description makes you want to experience it. “At the far edges of reality, slipping feverishly thru the cracks of the surreal. 4,000 pounds of desert sand brushing up against the painted sky of a perfectly eclipsed sunset, and accented only by the statuesque and silhouetted neon cacti.”

This is the type of unique photoshoot location that lets you take a metaphorical walk towards your bright and sunny future!
