Harv's Island is a location in Animal Crossing: New Horizons where Harvey lives. On this island is Photopia, a building where the player is able to set up shots and take photos with characters.

To unlock the island, the player needs to speak to Harvey when he visits on roughly the third day of island living. He tells the player that he owns his own island and invites them to visit. The island can be accessed for free from the airport. After the player arrives for the first time, Harvey showcases Photopia to them and gives a tutorial on how to use it.

Photopia is the building located on Harv's Island where players can set up photo shoots. The player is able to access items they have unlocked in the Nook Shopping Catalog and configure indoor scenes with the intent to stage photos. The player can place furniture, change the wallpaper and flooring, and invite the villagers currently living on their island. Using select Animal Crossing amiibo cards and amiibo figures enables the player to summon the rest of the New Horizons cast of villagers and some special characters. In addition, the invited characters can be dressed up and can express emotions the player has unlocked on cue. To capture a photo, the player uses the Camera app on their NookPhone.

After the player returns to their home island, Harvey will call via Nook Phone and mention that posters of the invited characters are available for purchase from Nook Shopping. Not all amiibo will be able to be summoned in Photopia, though posters may still be available.

Wedding Season[edit]

Main article: Wedding Season

Introduced in the 1.2.0 April Free Update, Wedding Season is an event that takes place at Photopia during the month of June. During the event the player is tasked with taking photos of Cyrus and Reese for their wedding anniversary in exchange for Heart Crystals. Each day Reese will ask for the room to be decorated in a different theme, and after each photo shoot the player can talk to Cyrus to exchange Heart Crystals for wedding-themed items, including items from the Wedding Series.
