Overall, very nice photos. Maybe a bit safe?
Also, when you'll be shooting her wedding, tell her not to press her arm against her body. It will make her arms look skinnier.

Thanks for the comment. I'm not interested in weddings at the moment...and the location and fast fading light prohibited other options I wanted to accomplish like freelensing and true sunset photos.

Love your mobile friendly website BTW.

I like the overall feel of them. great job.

with the park bench shot, should she have her legs crossed? Almost feels like you can see up her skirt. (this is an open question for anyone to answer, so I can learn as well).

For me, the arrows are a bit confusing because it could go either way instead of it being just a sign. like the arrows are used to point his meaning his own, and her's being her own shoes and body. That's probably just me though.


Some of my feedback

They look really good :)

There were just two I didn't like

The bench shot, not flattering at all. o.O Shot from front on and down low and almost up her skirt!

And the one which is a close up of her necklace, feels like it's a pic of her boobs lol

but yeah I'd be heaps happy if they were my engagement photos.

I would probably like something a bit pulled back though, they are all very close. like a shot from a distance of the surroundings.. something a bit epic IYKWIM?

Is there significance to the necklace? the shot with them holding hands it seems to be the focus but his fingers being chopped in corner of frame looks odd. Overall I like them

Yes, they are getting married on Pi day (31415). In the necklace you can see the Pi symbol.

Overall I really like the set. There is a little too much with the props (chalk board, '&' symbol and the arrows). I understand you have to take the shots if the clients wants it but you can be more selective with what you show on your blog/website.

And like others have pointed out the bench shot isn't all that flattering of her. Cross legs, have her turn a bit or shoot from a little higher there. But again, I really do like the set as a whole. Great colors, exposures are on point and consistent, subjects seems relaxed and comfortable.
