This is from an engagement photoshoot that I did during the winter, on a particularly windy day. Fortunately, the wind only seemed to highlight the joy of the moment! Congratulations, Sylvia!

I think this is a great photo. I love how her hair blows in the wind, even if you didn't plan for it to. It accentuates the ring because everything else seems to be covered in her hair with the exception of her engagement ring. It really highlights the sort of crazy love she seems to be feeling. I think this is your best photo emotionally; the model seems to be very expressive and ecstatic. The only thing I'd suggest is that her other hand shouldn't have a ring on it because it takes some of the focus off of her engagement ring. :)

Frustrated, certainly. I can see that. :XD:

I imagine that wasn't exactly easy to work with, even if it was working in your favor.

I love that the focus is on the ring, which signals that it is an important component in the photo, but that her face is in focus enough that you can still see the happiness of her expression. This is a wonderful engagement photo. :love:

A lot more emotive than most of your previous work but I can tell you have still put the same amount of thought into the look of the entire shot.

The relationship between colours if excellent and the sense of joy on her face is very authentic and genuine.

The wind certainly adds to the overall drama of the piece.

Haha, she's 20, but she does look young. Thanks for the kind words!
