I don't want to be, but I am completely distracted by the haircut.

Why does he never look at the camera? I like the lighting and composition overall but it seems bit odd that the viewer never sees his eyes and he never looks at the camera. Even in the photos where the woman is not looking at the camera directly you can see her eyes in most of them. You never see his eyes though, which makes the series feel slightly off.

They're good but with some issues:
-Light splash on her face.
-He shows zero expression/emotion, he never looks at the camera, he could basically be a mannequin or random person who was walking by and stood in (I assume there were some shots that showed otherwise).
-I assume there are images that show full on smiles. The most we get in these are a slight smile from her. Doesn't really convey the type or degree of emotion one would like to see in an engagement session.

I like the processing in the color images, no complaints there :) My only issues are with the lack of connection the subjects have with the camera or each other, but that might be just because of the selection of images uploaded here.

Absolutely.

It looks like the guy doesn't even know her. There is zero emotional connection between the two. In picture 2 he has his hands behind his back. As if he's afraid to touch her. That's not at all complimentary to her.

The camera stuff is fine but why the hell is nobody smiling ever and they barely look like they know each other?

This is the most accurate statement on this thread.

Maybe he is nervous? Maybe he isn't touchy freely in public? He is smiling at her in the 2nd image and kissing her in the last! She looks like she likes him :-)

Thanks to all of you for comments, I appreciate it
So, about the couple. I didn't want to do this, but I feel that I need to explain few things, after few posts I read in here
They know each other, that for sure. They have few months kid, and she is in 4th months in pregnant. I offered this session to them, because they book me for a wedding. They live in small, small town, almost village in small comunity, and they don't want to anybody, to knows about second child, before their marriage.
In the link you have more pictures from that session. Belive me or not, but they gave me smile maybe in 5% off the time we had.

Great series though I agree with the above comments, would have liked to have seen more emotion from him
