Awesome Photos Of Couples That Won't Make You Sick

As someone who spends a lot of time looking at photos online - if it's on Flickr, Facebook or Tumblr - I come across hundreds of photos of couples every month. The problem is: the photos are almost always kitschy, boring and make you feel sick inside. You know what i'm talking about. This is why I chose to feature some great images of couples that will actually make you stop and think. Maybe even smile.

As a portrait photographer, my first instinct is to make sure you can see their faces. Having said that, I am really drawn to the last photo where no faces are visible.

Some of them still make me sick :)

Agreed. Ryan Brenizers photos are rad except for the borders that make me sick.

I was vomitting all over the place. Now I have to buy a new mac.

I specialize in this kind of stuff. :) Engagement photos are my favorite to shoot!

This isn't about you or your photos. Pretty sad if you have to promote yourself out on threads that aren't about you.

you must of not read the article. It says share your best couples shots..

Actually, it says "Want to share with us your own couple shots? post them on our Facebook Group!" death is in the details...

In the facebook group, not on here. I did read it

Photoshopping two people into a cloned-over JPEG still-frame from a Hollywood film does not make for an "Awesome Photo," IMHO. The couple look as if they're hovering about 6 inches off the ground and the light doesn't match.

I really like Margot Pandone!

Here is a like to my most recent engagement shoot. Let me know what you think.

I really enjoyed Dona Yamazaki's and Margot Pandone's. I think Andrew James' might be the opposite of what this article was going for

Brian Bray's picture

Wow, those church people were right: a couple really is a man and a woman!
(Guess we're not quite there yet.)

Some of this photos are exactly the same thing that too many lifestyle photographers do.
The legs without heads photo is something never seen before?

Thank you very, very much for featuring my image! I also really appreciate @facebook-100005325606967:disqus 's comment. Although I do Wedding and Engagement photography, the image chosen wasn't from any commissioned shoot, just street photography. I was walking through Brooklyn Bridge Park and happened upon the scene.

Whether they were engrossed in a quiet conversation, or simply enjoying a blissful moment, I do not know. I never saw their faces. For me, it represented more of an ideal and happy notion of love rather than a portrait of two specific people. Racked out and took a single frame, and this was it.

Thanks again!
