The world moves so quickly, sometimes it’s nice to slow things down with the one you love. A high exposure crowd shot shows that your partner is the calm in the crazy storm of life.

When you are newly wed you want to share it with the world and what’s the best way to announce you marriage? By standing in front of the city together!

The buildings in large cities tend to be tall, creating that amazing skyline, so they have a lot of stairs. Use the hundreds of steps to your advantage with an aerial shot of you and your beloved.

While kisses do make cracking photos, there is an underappreciated sweetness that comes from just holding your beloved’s hand.

You can’t have a wedding without guests, so make sure you include them in your photos. This group shot on a roundabout is a fantastic way to include everyone in one picture.
