Had to shoot an engagement session today at 12:30pm, talk about brutal light, but they where a very fun loving couple, and it was easier than I was imagining. Here's my favourite:

I LOVE 1 and 4. In Pic 5 I love everything but the look on her face. His expression is priceless. I wish she was looking back at him or maybe even looking at you.

I like 3 a lot - nice use of your foreground! You can't even tell it's midday - you did great :)

You can just feel the love in these images! Wonderful emotion in them.

Good work :)

The only nitpicks I have is that in #3, I'd like to have the tulip a bit more in focus. OOF is fine, but I find this is a bit pushing it. Maybe the tulip sharp and the couple OOF would work better.

Finally, in #5 there seems to be contradictory expressions. His seems to say: "come on baby, let's get it on!" while hers would be more like "not here, what if we get caught!". She's looking away from him and her hand between them indicates a separation.

Just my $0.01 worth (I think my C/C may not even be worth $0.02 ;) as most people never seem to agree with me! :confused: I guess I'm different! :D)

Nice stuff! Using only the 70-200 I'm guessing you kept your distance and didn't have to direct them that much? That's awesome. Her hand looks washed out in 2, but I don't know if that's the effect you were going for... probably is. Some nice emotion coming through! Great job!

as per usual great colour editing and fantastic poses..
the only thing i dont like is her profile in image 3 with the kiss... i always find kissing can bring strange looking profiles to some people.. but besides that its all good
