    Hi Melanie,

    The focal length and overall settings look great, well done!

    If the pose is good enough to impress the clients then that is all that matters, however here’s a couple tips that might help you blow away the next client even more!

    Arms always look a lot better if they’re held away from the body a tiny bit. Next time, try having his arm go underneath, with his hand tucked up behind her elbow; this will make her arms look even better.

      I didnt even notice the fingers until you pointed that out.  Good tip, will look for that in future.

    Random tidbits of fingers / hands coming around the back are usually not good, I always have my clients either hide those hands / fingers entirely, or go in the opposite direction and really bring the hand around to visibly be pulling her into the embrace.

      This is something I didnt notice – I can post take his fingers out but will be on the look out for things like this.  Thank you.

    The overall vantage point looks like it’s just a touch below eye level, so the couple has to look slightly downward to look at you. I would try a slightly higher-than-eye-level angle, whenever possible.

      I am right under five foot tall – so this may be why and they were quite a bit taller than me.  This is something I am not sure how to fix.  I do have to move back farther when they are a lot taller.
