Are they standing on train tracks? Looks more scary than romantic.

The train had made a stop so we quickly took a series of shots in front of it. It's not supposed to be romantic in the traditional sense...they specially wanted something different. The rest of the shoot has them in football jersey's in front of street art lol.

Engagement photos are less often about being purely romantic and more about telling the story of the couple. It's honestly my favorite thing to shoot.

I get that and it totally makes sense and I definitely get the idea of the shot... but having known someone who committed suicide by jumping in front of a metro train I also find the image a bit unsettling, though I'm sure I'm in the minority on that so please don't take it as a harsh criticism or anything, I generally love your work :)

Thanks for the kind words Lucas. I don't find it harsh at all. Personal experience dictates the interpretation of an image....this is one of the fascinating things about photography. I watched my best friend wreck a motorcycle and consequently pass away so I get it...stuff like that sticks.

The real reason I shot this is because the light-rail is sort of an iconic part of downtown Houston....and they wanted to show that their love for the city.

I found it very unsettling for the same reason.

I suppose the train track symbolizes the beginning of the journey. Unfortunately, with the train in the background it looks to be an ominous journey. In fact his body language suggests he is uneasy.

Definitely a powerful photo in how it affected me.

That makes sense. Like I said, I can certainly understand why such an image would be appealing and I get your thought process behind it, just doesn't sit right with me, I think a large part of it is because her eyes appear to be closed and his are open... just makes for a very ominous image to my mind.

My thoughts exactly. And I'm sorry for your loss.

1st (blue) one for me but if you had only posted the second shot I would have liked that too as both are good. Just prefer the cooler tones in this example

Both were shot with the Canon 70-200/4, I think at about 100mm or so.

Very nice. I think thats what makes the pano so intereting. Downtown is nicely compressed behind the parking lots. Same for the stadium. Nice job nadim

Although the 2nd image may be more accurate, I like the 1st one too as it sets a different kind of mood.
