    Did they pay for the engagement session alone, or is it part of doing their wedding photography as well?

    Nice. I think it could use a little work in post, though.

    what a pretty setting.

    I am not overly keen on shots where there is alot of space around the couple/person I like tighter crops, - but thats just me :) and its what the couple like thats important.

    They look happy

    I agree. You should push this. The sky could be a fantastic blue, if more saturated. The ocean could be a nicer color. They need more light on them, I think. The shadows need to be lifted some. Those clouds need to be WHITE and have more contrast against the sky.

    A vingette would help to draw the eye in and also work to crop some of the dead space around the edges.

    I do like the angle you chose and the location! Congrats on your first paid shoot :)
