Engagement portrait squared by Owen Beach seawall

This engaged couple is posed sitting side by side at the base of the concrete retaining wall at Owen Beach in Tacoma's famous Point Defiance Park. All I had to ask was for them to snuggle into each other, and these happy expressions were the result. The black and white effect emphasizes the couple's happy expressions and the texture of the concrete and beach, and the square crop eliminated some distracting elements from one of the sides and gives the image a different look.
