    Well my daughter has gotten engaged so I offered to do some engagement shots for her and her fiance'. Please let me know what you think and what can be improved. Thanks.

    Nice series of shots, #3 seems a little out of focus, #6 try to control the flash so it doesn't create a shadow and also he is out of focus. But over all I like the poses and #2 is the best to me.
     
  3. Very cute couple.

    Best wishes...

    Thank you both. These were my first shots with flash as it was getting dark fast.
     
  5. I'm not a wedding photographer and I only recently did an engagement session for friends of mine. So take it as for what it's worth, but the one thing I noticed was there were not pictures that showed the ring.

    Number 2 and 5 are my favorites. You nailed the pose and the lighting. Congrats to the couple.

    You are correct. I did not post any of the ring as I did not get any specific shots of it. I did get some close ups of them holding hands though with the ring in it. One nice thing is that since it's my daughter I can get the ring any time. :smile:
