Beautiful couple and i’m sure they are happy in love together but…I don’t think this style of photography is representative of a happy couple ready to get married. They are divided in almost every photograph. There is no interaction. except for the very last three photos. I’ve been seeing this trend constantly with couples standing a foot apart from each other sitting on a bench (like the unhappy farmer painting) and not smiling, i alway think is so odd and strange. Couples holding balloons are strange too, well props in general (vintage cameras, vintage suitcases etc.)
sorry to be a downer, but I wish to se more interaction between the couple.
I have to disagree with the previous poster regarding the couple looking divided and the lack of interaction. I counted 5/11 photos with obvious interaction between the couple, which is about half the pictures! A couple doesn’t need to be holding hands or kissing in every picture in order to represent their happiness. It’s fun to mix it up, and these photos have a great combination of interaction as well as fine art.
…actually, if you saw the rest of the pictures (www.taramcmullen.com), you’d see that most of them were us together…and all of them as a group were really reflective of us as a couple – i feel like both separately and together we are awesome, and that’s what those pictures are saying….but regardless, everyone does pictures for their own reasons – and our engagement pictures were not meant to represent us as a happy couple ready to get married, we did them for fun and to capture a moment and to get us used to having our pictures taken before the wedding….and the shoes were from browns in toronto
