Some photographers are really precise and controlling, but I'm the exact opposite of that... I really just show up and feel it out. In fact, I'm probably a bit too loose in the way I shoot, and would like to work on planning my shots more, but I still think the couple should dictate the tone of the session.
I had one couple that was very awkward and needed my guidance in order to look natural in front of the camera, but I never pushed them to kiss or show too much affection, because it just wouldn't work for them. The shots were nice, very safe and mostly "camera aware", but they were really happy with them.
Another couple was so affectionate that I either had to get them a hotel room or interrupt them in order to move the shoot along. So, it goes both ways, but I think any couple will give you a sense of their comfort level.
