Thanks! I'm glad we have knowledgeable photographers that are willing to share their knowledge with newbies like me and others. I love this forum!' I learn more here than all the books and online training I have purchased in the past year.
Thanks again!

Great post. Funny you brought up chatty couples. I have this one that they're in a long distance relationship and when we did the engagement they're non-stop talking. It helped them to relax though. I'd let them talk and when I find a good frame I'd yell okay guys time for a kiss. Here's some pics from the session -http://www.evolyllapho​tography.com …-house-wedding-engagement (external link). Most of my e-sessions are less posed than the norm. I love it when I captured the real emotions and interactions, the chemistry. Find some samples here http://www.evolyllapho​tography.com/engagemen​t-photos/ (external link). I think depending on one's style (more classy/ posed versus more casual/ documentary), it's important to communicate that to the couple so they know what to expect. I also find that a mix with posed and candid is often appreciated no matter what the couple says their preference to be. It also helps to understand their expectation for their wedding photos when you deliver a mix of posed and candid engagement photos. When it comes to posing, I find touch the face, talking into the ear, looking at each other work very well as alternatives to kissing. Every subtle interaction counts.

I like to place the couple in front of the balloon when the heater kicks on
