Kelly
You handle the lighting/exposure/composition so well here.
I truly love your photography.
Lately I've been pointing out things in your shots that I see, they may be trivial, but I think they are worth pointing out just in case you didn't see them or didn't think of them, to give you an outsiders view.
I hope you don't think i'm nitpicking for no reason. In my mind there is a reason. And since I know you are always trying to improve, I'll mention them, humbly.
For the one of them walking away, I think a little cloning /liquify on her back could be done to make a more complimentary picture. and the last one would be my favorite if she wasn't leaning so hard and pushing his head backwards.
So my favorite is the one where he is higher than her. Maybe it's my male insecurity. I'm working on it.
I learn so much from your posts.

Thank you very much for the comments.

Fran, I see what you mean. I always look at the overall image and don't pay enough attention to the detail. And I don't use the liquify tool very well. I've tried and failed. Need to try againl

I just saw a tutorial where you can use the history brush after liquify to return the stuff that you want back to where it was. Gonna try it as well

the one on the left of the second last two is my favourite. It's just romantic

these are all nicely done and I'm sure they must be pleased with them.

Nice job, Kelly, I love engagement sessions and you did great. I like the 2nd to last one best.

What about tilting the one Fran mentioned to the other direction? #3, I think it was. Getting their heads more level, or even the guy a tiny bit higher. The original doesn't bother me but that's just a different option to try.

Kelly, very nice series!!!!
The only one I can find something (and totally just my opinion) is the b/w crop. I wish his hand was in the image. That or I would tighten in on them around the shoulders...getting in closer to a head shot.
These are wonderful and I love seeing your work.
They will love them!
