For the sentimental couple

Where did you first meet your significant other? Where did you have your first date? Your first kiss? At a café, a park, a library? Why not base your engagement shoot in that location or even that particular moment? It’s always a brilliant idea to look back on all your memories together and commemorate the sweetest ones in the form of photos. Why not even decide to set the shoot in your own homes for extra comfort? It’s up to you.
