Use personal props
Why not take some precious items with you to the shoot to add in to your photos? You could be as imaginative or as simple as you like, or could simply go for the sentimental value options.

Think about the sorts of things that make you two such a great couple and the things you love about your partner, like whether they always shelter you with an umbrella or make you breakfast in bed, and try and incorporate these into your images.
Recreate famous, romantic scenes
Work with your photographer to transform your venture photography Chester studio into the bright lights of Hollywood and recreate your favourite romantic scenes from movies! For instance, everyone remembers that kiss from Spiderman, or the epic kiss in the rain in The Notebook, so why not turn your partner into your Prince Charming? The results will no doubt be absolutely adorable and your family and friends will be really impressed at how special and different they are.
Go for the humour element
If none of these options really speak to the type of couple that you are, a great option is going for humorous yet sweet photos.
