Default Engagement shoot for my fiance's sister.

I promised these two that I would get some shots for them when we all had a free minute so we grabbed an hour today and went for a play.

Harsh Egyptian early afternoon sun wasn't ideal and we are going back at some point to do some early evening beach shots, but I think there are some acceptable ones.

Shot with 5DmkII and a mix of 24-105mm f4, 85mm f1.8, 580EX flash.Exif is in place.

As always I'm open to suggestions to improve for the next time out.



3 Yes, very fake but good fun.

4 I decided to play with some harsh backlight and no flash to bring the focus on the couple.









Thanks for looking, Mark.

Good work with the harsh light, I like 7 and 8 the best, remind me of engagement pics I have seen that my friends who have had engagement shoots have liked here in the states.
