Not crazy about the first shot. Seems a little harsh and edgy for an engagement photo.

I like the second shot, though the small portion of the face in in the upper left is a little distracting to me and draws me away. Maybe crop it tight in portrait orientation.

You know I wasnt that crash hot with the first either, but the client picked that as her favourite ....go figure

Shes an interesting person to work with, doesnt want anything "staged" or posed wants the whole wedding to be candids ; can feel the greys coming on already

thanks for your help, am going to try a tighter crop with it

I like the emotions in the first shot. The exposure is a bit off, but it's the better shot.

The second shot may be a little too candid. She looks apprehensive. NOT an emotion you want to capture in an engagement photo. Telling me this is an engagement photo gives me pause.

I love your first picture because of the action you caught.. Laughter is a simple form of love and you took that photo well.. if you had of been maybe at a lesser angle then above them the exposure might have turned out better.. and agreed the second shot is a very nice up close shot however she does not seem happy and in love .. she seems Un enthralled with something in the direction she's looking...
