Good client of mine asked me to do her engagement and wedding. We're doing to 2 engagement shoots, one of the two of them and one with them and her daughter. Things went well, they were comfortable with the camera, very much themselves. She loved them so I guess that really all that matters at the moment.

C&C appreciated.

I feel they are cropped/zoomed in too tight. Wishing I could see a little bit more than just their faces. At least with the images you posted. Them being happy with the photos is the main goal, so job well done.

The first one is over-exposed a full stop easily.

The others are technically proficient, but are a bit too cropped in so all we see are heads and shoulders filling each frame.

The color seems a little yellow on some of them.

Not too bad, but definitely try to get outside of the comfort zone of the tight shots and explore your surroundings.

I did some wider shots. See if you like these better.

Best shot of the entire session that I've seen so far. You had them off center, which I love. You had them in what appears to be a natural moment, you have good exposure, you have a beautiful setting...I like this a lot. As far as how to make this better, consider that once the kiss has happened, you've missed the moment. You want that split second before the lips meet. And tell your clients to have their lips slightly parted, it's the difference between sniffing and kissing. :)

GOod job.
