{First Time} Couple Shoot!

My first foray into the world of couple’s photography…featuring Josh and Carley, who are getting married this July! They were reeeeaaally easy to work with, thankfully, and we (at least I  🙂 ) had so much fun… 🙂 Enjoy the smattering of samples!

  1. #2 & #5 are my favorites because of your use of color and posing. Great work!!! I saw the post in my email & flagged it so I could comment later 😉 I really, REALLY liked them! 🙂

  2. I’m no pro, but i like them all. And how lucky of you to get critique from Sara! I agree with her about #4, it’s not my favourite treatment as well, and it’s a great shot!

  3. Bear in mind that I really like your work and follow it with a smile. <;
    #1 I like. I would have had them sit farther forward from the rail, or used a shallower depth of field; having the rail in focus in this position (right through the guy's head) draws attention to that strong line and away from the faces. Otherwise, very nice.
    #2 – Cute, nice expression. If you'd used a longer zoom and been farther back, her nose wouldn't look big. I like the white balance on this one.
    #3 — Good b&w conversion. This one's an odd one in that his expression is more interesting but she's the one in focus. That makes it a very interesting shot. I would probably clone out the bright spot that's even with his eyes, right up against his head.
    #4 — I'm not a fan of this treatment, but this is my favorite shot of the bunch. You chose a good angle and a good aperture. I'd clone out hair where it meets the edge of the picture, and consider cropping a little *more* of his head; it's a little distracting to me to have just that smidge cut off. For the same reason, I might darken his ear a little. *Nice* job.
    The last picture is fun! I like the faces. The white balance seems a little off, but just a little. The change I'd make to this one is to clone out the dappling on her skirt. I might have chosen a narrower dof, but it's nice as is.
    Good job for your first couples set! I hope this helps and doesn't discourage. <:
