    These are samples of the engagement session from this morning. The client is getting married next month in a fancy vineyard so for the e-session they wanted something different then traditional foliage.

    The second view is very nice. I like the mono-chromatic look.

    I would like to see her legs/feet more out and away from her and not so bunched up. Her hair too needed some attention.

    Good job with the clothing selection!

    Pete good eye! that's true I think her hair could've used some attention. Your suggestion for the legs could've worked great too. I wish I had a better shot from this series apparently it's the best one out of the 3. Thanks for the comments much appreciated :thumbup:

    On this version her hair is a little better. I was trying to decide between the two and now that I look at it more the angle is better as well.

    So here's a couple more on this series to share. I'm about half way and it's taking quite some time since the client wanted variety. I usually prefer the sharp and somewhat rugged look.

    1. Here's the more traditional style pose and edit. All I use to do is soften(somewhat of an orton) when I was starting and posed clients like this. But it got repetative after a while so I changed my approach eventually.

    2. I think the market is moving towards this style of edit/finish and composition, especially to clients who belong in the X and Y generations. I had a discussion earlier with a fellow TPF member and saw how much of a difference a traditional eye sees photography. Nothing wrong with that view, just kinda opened my eyes to somethings again.

    Thanks NJMAN. This has to be one of the biggest e-session jobs I've done. I'm giving them over 250 images on just on the engagement alone and doing a wide variety of editing as requested.

    Unbelievable. We spoke with the client and they're going to be ordering(big print and framed) this shot for display in the reception hall for their wedding day(for guests to sign). If Pete handn't said anything I wouldn't have given this as a sample for them to choose as a display. Right On! :thumbup:

    Lesson: Never assume what the client will or will not like :D
