Engagement portrait kiss on bench by Japanese Pagoda

While photographing this couple's engagement portraits at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, Washington, we stopped at the historic Pagoda in the Japanese Garden to make use of the building's rough brick walls. Upon finding this bench at the shady end of the Pagoda, I posed the couple sitting with her leaning back against her fiance, a foot up on the bench beside her, and she gave me an intriguing look as he kissed her on the cheek that was just perfect for a black and white look.
