Love all of them.... especially the last bw.

Love the deep green in the first two but find it missing... almost too light in the third.

Nice feeling in the images though.

Peace.
Eric

Yah, that would be because I forgot one of my normal PP steps in that image. Here it is 'corrected'

Actually I think the pictures turned out great, despite your hesitation. I guess he had just taken off his sunglasses in #1 and #2?

The pose in #3 is a bit un-natural, maybe have him put his hands around her waist instead of on the shoulder. Also, maybe have her criss-cross her leg a little more - right now they are overlapped on top of one another, gives the illusion the legs are wider than they really are.

I like #4, very original!

They look much more comfortable than your last couple, I like her expression in #1, and they seem much more connected.

Is that guy normally wearing glasses? He has a tan line!

You may want to try to PP that out...

In #2, there's a shadow by the girl's eye (close to her nose)... It almost looks like her mascara ran... Maybe lightening it a bit or removing that shadow altogether?

I love the fact that she removed her shoes in #3. Makes it a lot more relaxed moment!

Great work as usual!

Jeff I think these turned out a lot better than your last engagement shoot. You can see the connection between them!

I love that last photo - great concept!

She looks beautiful in the second one, and I love her expression. Beautiful light! Sometimes people are just like that. It is difficult, and you feel like you don't get as good of pictures, but what can you do if you've tried everything?

Hard couple You made them look easy. Just one thing I hope I would have seen is #4. He should have had his left arm outretched to his side and his left hand on the ground for balance. It just looks like he's straining a bit to sit up. Good work!
