2) Select a Photographer: Make sure to select a photographer who focuses on a natural style of photography and has experience taking pictures in the elements because you never know what may pop up in the woods.

 

 

3)Select a Color Theme: A color theme is a great way to create a look for your shoot and to determine your style as a couple. Incorporate these colors into your makeup, outfits, and decor.
