    Because its an outside shoot, make sure you have a place with interesting architecture, and then play. Use windows, doors, stairs, columns, anything to give the photos depth and dimension.

    Be creative with full length images. But then focus on bringing their heads together for closeups. You can use stairs for this, or just sit them on the ground.

    You can also play around with dips, and have him pick her up and spin and carry her.

    I'm 5' and my husband is 6'3. Our pictures always turn out fine. It's just us. Also keep in mind that she will probably where heels at some point in the session. Which should give her an extra 3 inches or so! Good Luck.

    do some with him picking her up and swinging her around, have her stand on some ledges, next to him, it's ok to exploit that he's taller than her b a good margin ;)
