the shadows make this one a little weird but overall i like it
they are too far away, it looks really awkward and he needs to take his hands out of his pocket
they are squinting big time, if its really bright out, try to find a covered shade spot
i like the idea, I'd like to see a more shallow DOF
arms are extremely awkward
their feet shouldn't be cut off, and maybe leave empty space the direction they are facing
prob my favorite shot
better arm placement here, i like it
the feet cut off bothers me again, i'd crop some of the empty space on the left out
good, maybe crop a bit tighter? cut off some of top and some of the right side.
seriously, why he didnt drop the F stop and bump up the shutter speed is beyond meTheyre not THAT bad, some are too soft but I'm sure they'll end up liking them and that's what matters (to them). At long focal lengths watch your shutter speed: remember, the longer it is, the harder it is to hold it steady

I think a better lighting set up could have helped the shots, but they're pretty good. what were you using for lighting?
here's some comments, just my opinion and what I'd do to make it better next time.
again, just my opinion, but i hope it helps
on the wtf arms pic, she was trying to show off the ring a bit. and yeah I kept telling them when posing them to do what felt natural and comfortable, but a lot of them still look very awkward.
the shot where he's down on one knee, I couldn't figure out later what I didn't like about it, but it is definitely the DOF. when I got the idea for that I was much further away shooting at almost 200mm.. after I posed em I was closer and went to 70mm.. didn't even think about it. 4ft dof changed to 20ft.
