Sometimes I feel its hard to pick locations for a couple to shoot their engagement pictures. Some couples come to you with ideas and some come to you with expectations of you giving them locations for their pictures. I stay away from the "cookie cutter" engagement sessions. I would find it boring to have to shoot the same 2-3 places for every engagement session. Though sometimes it may be challenging to photograph a new place without previously having shot there, there is also a reward. The reward is getting to shoot something new and unique and being able to use your creativity to overcome the obstacle of shooting in an unfamiliar area.
