    The black & white is a good idea, because otherwise, his red shirt stands out like a sore thumb.

    yeah i was slightly disappointed when he showed up in what he had on, he's somewhat of a heel when it comes to photographs. so i tried to work with what i was given. :)

    I tend to kind of hint to couples in advance what colors to wear and not to wear and try to get them to match because I like the matchy matchy look in engagement photos :lol:

    I would say that honestly they need a little work. #1 and #3 are pretty good because they have decent shallow depth of field. But in #2 and #5, the depth of field needs to be shallow. Otherwise, the backgrounds are distracting in the others. Especially in #5, the brick and concrete structure is working against the image, rather than helping it. Also in #5, she is standing too far away from him, so the pose looks sort of awkward, and with the use of flash, the lighting looks flat and does not flatter the subjects much. The most important thing about engagement photos is to use light and shadows to create atmosphere and romance. These just look too much like snapshots. Sorry if this seems harsh. I would say that #3 is the best of the bunch (in the first batch).
