    First thing I noticed about the image was her sunglasses with the jeweled hair piece. Those two items will contradict each other!  I understand sunglasses on the beach, but it will fight with the hairpiece in the situation.   The second thing is to see if maybe his body could come slightly forward toward the camera so that her chest isn’t completely opened up to the camera .  Right now she has such an open stance that it attracts attention in a masculine sense.  Have him take that deep breath in and take up more space to look strong and masculine.

      The first thing I noticed was his sunglasses, so there’s definitely a sunglasses problem going on here haha.

      Here’s my general rule that I follow when it comes to sun glasses: I like to shoot one portrait of the couple with their sunglasses on, looking off into the distance, (towards the direction of the sun, but not actually looking AT the sun of course) with a cool “heroic” type pose. Then, after that, sunglasses come off and get hidden out of sight, for the “smiling at the camera” and other types of romantic shots.
