*I always shoot with a low aperture and a stop up on the meter for the bright + airy look.
-Don't be afraid to do something different or creative! Get some detail shots like hand holding, close ups of flowers or branches nearby, etc. Have them interact with each other!!! Smile and laugh with them, and try not to stop and look at the back of your camera too much. Keep encouraging them and shooting!

STOP POSING. START PLAYING!
Before you start shooting - prepare your couples by saying "During our session, I'm going to ask you some questions and have you play some games... the point is to take our minds off the camera, to have fun and love on each other." We've noticed that some people take the games way too seriously or might feel like they're being quizzed in which the game bombs. Just reassure your couples that you are not judging them and the idea is to HAVE FUN! Look for those in between moments or the moments right after :-)
