1. Outfit planning. Give yourself some different options. Plan your outfits together and ahead of time so that you know exactly what to wear and where. Maybe pick a casual outfit for some, and a dressier look for the rest. P.S. Don't forget your pants, fellas. Austin forgot his pants, but fortunately was able to borrow a pair of my brothers. 😂 Thanks Diego.
2. Pick a spot that means something to you. Austin and I have frequented the Ace hotel in Palm Springs every year since we started dating. We have had a ton of late nights laughing and talking around the property. We also go to the desert a lot to visit family. So choosing these spots as our photo destination made it feel a little more effortless, put us both in our element you could say.
3. Props! Although we did not include props, Emma had made a great suggestion that if we wanted to pop a bottle of champagne, or set up some sort of vignette we could incorporate that. So if you and your lover are big on having picnics, setting up a cute blanket, a lantern, and snacks could go really well.
