    Very nice series...the second is just perfect.
     
  4. All photo's are great shots. But the funny thing for me is that all the kissing shots would say they are in love but the best photo what for me shows how much the love each other is the one they don't kiss.

    You see her melt in the eyes of the guy great work love that shot! Lovely colors in that shot to. Thumbs up!

    Have to agree with all of the above !!!!!

    Job well done.
     
  6. Image #2 is one of those pictures that just says it all. That image should be printed large and hung in a prominent location.
     
  7. Dan, again, I'm glad to see your regular assistant was able to do this. The shots are fantastic! The backdrop for all the three photos that you included in the post are great. Wonderful composition, color and lighting.

    All,

    Thanks for the comments; I agree that the second shot is the best of the series. As for all the kissing shots, The One in front of the love sign the bride wanted, the one in the middle of the street (with city hall in the BG) my wife came up with and the third one was kind of a spontaneous moment.

  9. Hi Dan,
    I agree that shot #2 is THE shot! I love the lighting in it and your pp effects. Very nice, indeed!
     
  10. Redundant, but #2 is a great shot. I had to chime in with my praise. The lighting is perfect!
     
  11. very nice work indeed.

    Alex Kevin and Mitchell,

    Thanks for the kind comments, The post processing on this shot consisted of a small white balance tweak, a little USM to bring a little texture into there hair and a custom vignette action from action central.


    Thanks,
    Dan

    Nice

    Love No. 2. I am going to take my daughter's engagement photos this weekend and I am really nervous about it. Do you have a link for the custom vignette actions that you used on No. 2. I really like the effect.
     
  18. I am sure they will be thrilled with the shots really liek the 2nd one . I admire your work

    Terri,
    The best advice I can give you is to have a plan beforehand. I knew exactly the shots I was looking to get before I ever turned on the camera. This is the way I approach about 90% of my shoots, be it an engagement shoot, portrait, wedding or headshot.

    For the action There are 3 parts to it. Ignore the first part. the second will allow you to select the area of intrest. after that run the third part, it will bring up a saturation screen, I lowered the luminisity uped the saturation a tiny bit. next it brings up a curves window, I create a little more of an s curve to darken the BG to my liking.

    Mike,

    Thankyou for the complement! You are way to Kind! I was browsing your galleries, you have some amazing shots there. I loveyour shots of center city (especally the cloths pin at broad and market. I met my wife for the first time there).
