    Last Saturday I had the opportunity to do my first engagement shoot. The couple were so fun to work with, we all had a blast enduring the cold ourdoor weather. Here's two of the shots from our session. :)

    I hope you don't take offense to this: they have a very candid appeal to them. Because, honestly, I think the candid appeal is what makes the shots so good. Technically, they are fine as far as I can tell, but there is that natural look to them that makes them seem like keepsake snapshots. Of course, if I look deeper into it, they are sharp, well-lit, and well-composed. I think you have really great shots here, they are so natural. Good stuff.

    I'm not too sure on what you're getting at. :)
    The first shot was set up, the 3 together was a candid of them goofing on and showing their personalities.

    I think these are brilliantly done. The fun romantic in the first with that translated into a 'photobooth' type look (I honestly mean that as a compliment) in the second works very well.

    Photobooth! That's what I was trying to say. Good call, Peanuts.

    Yeah, seriously, that look is what makes these shots so good.

    The photobooth was the plan. I basicly told them i'm snapping off a shot every 3 seconds and it was up to them to chance poses in that time. It gave the shots a very candid approach.

    I love these and think they are really cute, but maybe not for an engagement, I don't even see her ring. lol

    good shooting on your part though!

    Awe - those are adorable! I like when people are just being themselves - you get the best pics out of them that way. :)
