    I had an engagement session with a fun and goofy couple on the 19th. I really liked the way this session turned out. My new editing style is finding it's groove. There were so many I liked that I had a hard time choosing ones for the post!

    Very nice set, but I have a small issue with posing. Some poses look a bit weird (both looking different ways?) and the girl even tilts her head away from the guy in few shots.
    My favourites would be probably #10 and #12. In my opinion they show their love the best. Other shots are clearly posed and not very natural.

    Thanks for the reply. You're right to notice the posing as this couple was actually very awkward when it came to posing. They are not your typically affectionate couple, so getting the poses I got was a challenge. Nearly every image they had to be talked through the entire pose, so if they look awkward, it's because they were!

    Very nice, #9 & 14 are my favorites. Only small ding would be that some of them appear they might benefit from a slight increase in saturation on the skin tones. #14 on my monitor appears the best of the bunch on nice healthy skin tones.

    Nice set; I don't quite 'get' #10, but overall? Well done!

    Thanks for the comments! I find it's a fine balance with skin tones and I tend to fall just on the side of less saturated. Granted, I've made some significant changes to my editing style, so it is still a work in progress.

    Thanks! #10 was one of those "let's try something different" moments. Some work, some dont.. I was going for more of a silhouette and it was in the parking garage on the way back to the car. Certainly not everyone's cup of tea, but I liked it.

    So true, I also noticed the slight red tint to the young man's cheeks, something that a digital image always seems to emphasis. I share that same problem with my granddaughter. :ambivalence:

    Color and exposure seem nice and technical. None pop, they seem not exciting and composition could be better. The first with the stairs could use the stairs more. Less use of the side rail and maybe come out a bit further and go straight up the stairs. I often try to squeeze people into the photo and show them but see nice things where the people are much smaller than i would do and it comes out nice using more landscape and background. Likewise the door in number 5 could be used to frame them better which might make a more stylized shot. But very nice overall.

    The irony of these shoots sometimes is how you never know which ones the clients will really like. #10 turned out to be the one they liked the most and the one they wanted in the larger print!

    Thanks for the suggestions! Always appreciated!
