Your Local Pick-Your-Own Farm
Let's go apple picking in September, pumpkin picking in October, or strawberry picking in July. For couples who are a bit apprehensive about being in front of a professional camera, this is a perfect location. Having an activity with which to keep occupied can sometimes help take their minds away from the pictures, and allow you to re-focus on enjoying the time with each other. Couples who have small children may enjoy this venue as the activity will keep them engaged. This would also be a great venue to visit with your bridal party on your wedding day, if you are looking for a very fun and unique experience during your photographs!
