I couldn't agree more…it seems that someone there had a phone with them with screen shots of pinterest photos to do. I would say before getting into weird props and having couples do these staged photos with distracting objects. Focus on natural fun interacting poses. Tell him to come behind her and hug her, when your behind the lens say no your doing it wrong, I want you to squeeze the living hell out of her, and get ready for the natural laugh or smiles from them. Or tell them pretend its a really cold day and get really close together, melt into each other. Tell them to interact, while doing basic posing and I guarantee you will see a difference in the couple for the rest of the shoot. Having these props I think takes away from the couple, and they lose focus of each other.

I got what you mean, but we are in public place and its very hard to execute when the couples are too close to each other and very sweet, we are in a muslim country Kuwait and we are very aware of the rulings of the muslim even if there is no police around, still its too risky anybody can call the police and fabricated story that they are huging and kissing etc. etc. and we are all ended up in jail... lol it happens many times here in Kuwait, I hate it locals here are closed minded... :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: Anyway thanks a lot to all tips and suggestions.
