[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My son is engaged. This is my son and his fiance Lissa. Incidentally, her mother is my Spin Trainer. The kids met long before I met her. They didn't want us to meet, seems they thought the world would end. Instead, it didn't and we became great friends.
My son is getting married November 17, 2012 and had me take engagement photos this weekend. I am one PROUD Mama. I processed this with Lightroom.

Congratulation Linda on your sons engagement. What a beautiful picture of the happy couple. I love the composition, you have staged an amazing shot that shoes love in your son and and happiness i Lisa's face. TFS

HI Linda...very creative..nice work. I have a mount on the ceiling for shots like this. I think the effect can be very good and in this case you have made good use of the point of view.


I admire the POV in this shot which not only brings an amazing look to this wonderful portrait of your gems but also an enigmatic light in their lovely eyes, Linda B-)

The focus on their eyes is marvelous and details of their facial features are fantastic.
Good natural colors and nice PP work as well.

Many congratulations on your son's engagement!

Kind regards,


Congratulations on the engagement. I really like the composition of your photo. It has rotational symmetry in its balance, something somehwat difficult to achieve in photography. I can tell that it was planned that way. Very well done.


Olá proud mama
You have reasons to that. I like your photo. It is happy, it has color and it full of life.
They look very well
Um abraço, Linda

I'm surprised that you were able to concentrate with taking pictures, I'm sure you are very proud and excited about their engagement. Congratulation! Very nice capture of this happy couple and I wish plenty of happy years! I like the pov and it has good dof with nice details. Good lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
