My friends are getting hitched and they didn't think about getting engagement pictures until I begged them to let me shoot them. So after some rain, the sun cleared and I think I got some decent stuff. This isn't necessarily all of it or the best, just a few good ones I liked. C n C much appreciated. And yes, I know, some of them are your standard poses, but a)I'm just learning and b) they didn't know the difference. :D and yes, I didn't realize that those old people were in the picture until after I took it. grrr. I'll figure some way to get them out of it.
Shots taken with Xti 24-70L, 28mm, 17-40L. No photoshopping has been accomplished yet either.

I like the series, 4 being the best one for me. Fill flash would have been useful for #5. Yes, PP will help with skin tone, as well.

I think your weakest one would be #3 since I think it'll work a lot better as a vertical.

Also, when I see #1, I think of a close wide-angle shot looking up with the hands in focus in mind; like #2 (great angle by the way).

Glad you filled the frame on #4, it shows that you're not afraid on getting close and personal.

Thanks for all the feedback and tips. I think I might have #3 vertical. I'll have to go back and check and compare.

oh i love number 2! but i'm a blur freak! it emphasizes on the rings and the commitment between them... possibly better in B&W perhaps... i'm no expert though...

Leave the old people in! It's a very serendiptious juxtaposition of young and old. One day that will be them.

Nice series - they're a cute couple. Opening up to 2.8 or 3.2 would allow for a softer, less distracting background in a few of these. I like the old people there too....I know couples want their shoots to make it look like their alone in the world, but I like it when you get a few random people - and like the poster above said - it's a cool juxtaposition....or would that be a dichotomy?

I think I will be leaving the old people. I thought about it the other day. Some of these pictures were shot pretty wide open with my 28mm and my 24-70. I shall try that next time. I was actually thinking that I should have shot more along the lines of F11 to get better dof with their faces. Any thoughts on that?
