These are of my son and future daughter in law. They're both young enlisted service members, he's Army, she's Air Force, and both very young (19) so money's tight and I offered to take these for them.
I used a D80, shot in RAW, with a 80-200 2.6 and a 28-105. The setting was my in law's place, they have a really great garden. I'm not sure I did it justice.
Overall, I didn't think they turned out too bad. The kids like them, so does my wife, so that's good.
One lesson I learned was to avoid shooting wide open. I don't know if I included any in the one's I posted, but there were a couple where I selected her face as a focus point and his was oof from the very shallow depth of field with the 80-200. I think this created a bit of softness to them also.
The other lesson I learned was to watch the WB. It was a mix of lighting conditions, some sun, some shade and I used a SB 600 through an umbrella to try and fill. I tried correcting in PS, but I think the WB is still off.
I almost didn't post, after seeing some of the wedding someone else recently posted. Those were so good, and are certainly head and shoulders better than mine.
But if I'm going to improve, I need constructive criticism, so here goes.

Quite over-exposed. Almost all detail is pure white, except some text in the middle of the pictures.
