Engagement portrait with serious expressions in forest

This photo emerged as a favorite from a series of intimate, tightly framed photos that I shot of this engaged couple in a variety of heads-touching poses. I used my telephoto lens to render the couple in sharp detail while throwing the background into a blur. This particular photo in the series, with serious expressions and a little nuzzle, is what grabbed my attention the most, particularly with the classic look of that black and white effect. The setting is my favorite forested section of Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, Washington.
