Do you both love being outdoors? Maybe you both enjoy camping, hiking, biking or boating. Do you have a favorite restaurant that you love? Or maybe you want to include the beautiful campus at the university you both attended and fell in love at. No matter what location you choose, make sure it is special for you. Choose your outfits wisely. You want to make sure you choose colors and patterns that look great on camera.
