Default Engagement Shots (my first)

Tell me what you all think. It's my first time doing a "sit and pose" type shoot. I think they turned out alright. Here are a few shots.

Canon 20D: 17-40L f/4 200 ISO

Very nice!
I really like the duotone tone and colour. Perfect! Well thought out for your first.

thank you all for your kind words! I'm more of a photojournalist, so trying to pose people and 'plan' images was a little awkward at first, but I think they turned out pretty nice.

The last one is the best one...They might really like selective colouring on the pic that only includes their rings...

Cheers,

I like the first shot. Their bodies look a bit awkard in the second shot. Even though the groom will be laughed at, he looks very happy!

Great series. I'm sure they will be happy with the set if the rest are as good.
