Pets: If you’re both animal lovers, include your pets in your photo shoot. Choose a scenic outdoor location on a sunny day.

Bring along a pink and blue leash and tie them around the two of you as you embrace with your dogs in tow.

Library: Love books? Head over to a library for a fun photo shoot. The most beautiful and ornate libraries are generally in large cities. Ideally, if you live in or near a city like Boston or New York you can visit the public library and find a beautiful spot to take pictures. Even better, take along some of your favorite books or books you’ve read together to use in the photo shoot. Just don’T make too much noise.

College: If you met at college, it’s the ideal place to celebrate the memories you had and the journey you took together. Make your photo shoot fun by reliving the moments from college like eating at the dining hall, going to a football game, or walking around campus.

Movies: If you’re both big movie buffs and have a couple of go to favorites, use those movies as inspiration for your photo shoot. You can recreate a scene or simply dress as the characters. Even better, reenact a scene from the movie and send a video announcement to your friends and family.

Carnival: Bring out your inner child and head over to a local theme park or carnival.  Enjoy rides, fun foods and the excitement of being together. It will make for some great pictures as you enjoy each other’s company and even a little competitive spirit.
