I like all but the last one. His head and neck are in a awkward position.

Some harsh lighting in the B&W's, but you covered it up haha. What time of the day were you shooting?

I started shooting after 5:00pm EST. The last good hour of sunlight was gone by 7:00pm.

I figured the B&W PP would help trick the eye a bit on the scattered sunlight

I love that first shot...wish you could have caught more detail on the ring though...but still a bad ass shot.

I love the first image. What a great concept. However, the lighting pretty harsh on images #1, #2 and #4. What did you use for lighting?

It was all natural light, except for my 430exII speedlight for fill flash if needed.

good first shot be just remember your proportions. If this couple were to want this photo printed in a common size you may be in for some frustration. It doesn't look like it would crop to an 8X10 or other common sizes. Long ago when I first started out I wasn't mindful of these types of things and found myself in hot water trying to edit canvas dimensions and stretch images and such. give yourself a little room to crop.

He's suffering from slouch syndrome, brought on by her being shorter than he is. You see, when he's posing, he's slouching down till his cheek touches her forehead in an attempt to get on the same level as her. Either remind him to straighten up or have a footstool handy to stand her on to raise her up a bit so he doesn't have to slouch. You don't want to raise her too high, keep it believable.

I like the concept of #1 but I think the blur is way too much for me. The faces to me look way awkward.
