    My 1st engagement shoot. This couple was great! Young and full of life!! He is in the Army and was down for the weekend. They offered to pay me but
    I was unsure of how the pictures would come out and did not like the location
    too much. I'm really just getting practice so I can charge for shoots like this. Thanks for looking!

    Forgive me for the heavy burning, the background was houses and power poles :(

    I think they will be thrilled - you'd never know it was your first shoot of this type. Doesn't hurt that they are an adorable couple, of course... I really like 3, 4, and 5. The first and last are cute and they will love them, no doubt, but it's just not a pose I'd choose myself, so I'm not really drawn to them.

    These are great, good enough that you should have charged them.

    I really like the way these turned out. They are very high quality photos! The only thing I thought was a little 'odd' - maybe it's just me but it looks like she's wearing her wedding dress! lol So I'm getting a more wedding vide then engagement vibe.

    Beautiful pictures though!!!

    Thanks a lot everyone!!! They were very pleased with the pictures, it was a fun shoot. The only thing I would change is the location. It was very refreshing
    to photograph them. I'm 26 but remember when I was 20-21 and engaged to my wife! I wish we would have hired someone to take engagement pictures for
    us. Thanks again!!

    I think the images are excellent I only would add one thing and that is at least one straight up image that cleary shows both of their faces.
