I think you two are adorable! I like the one with the daffodils/ jonquils best!

carlsolindsay:  You guys are really cute! Congrats on the engagement! The third picture is great. I personally am not a fan of photoshop effects.

I like the third picture, I think the others are too filtered. 

I get everyone wants to look like they have perfect skin, but skin has texture, and when it’s so softened/blurred it just looks awkward.

Not bad for an amateur though. I have had pictures come in to my work from professionals that looked the same

You guys are both gorgeous, but I’m afraid you can definitely tell the pictures were taken by an amateur.

Aw, you are a cute couple and your pictures are sweet! I think the fourth photo would be great without the blurred edges. Maybe the second photo could be cropped in a bit so the two of you are more prominent in the photo?

They’re cute! I’d lose the blurr on the last one though.

I like the first & last ones but without the blurring or with the blurring just on background/ edging rather than on y’all.  You guys look nice & the pics look good, but the other ones are not cropped enough and cropped too much.

Aww, cute couple. Agree with the PP’s, the pics are nice but do look a little ‘amateurish’.

carlsolindsay:  I think this is a great route to go if you’re on a budget, and they look awesome!  All I truly wanted was a friend with a great camera to take some pics of FI and I in an apple orchard, but we missed the season.  Congrats, you both look great!

Aww, cute pictures! We didn’t have an amateur take our pictures, but I consider myself an amateur and I took pictures for my best friend and her FI 🙂
