Vanessa & Drew portraits

As always, I had a blast photographing Andrew and Vanessa.  They are a great couple to photograph.  They cannot take a bad image. 
Oh the weather outside was frightful, but the furnace inside so delightful, and since we could not go outside to shoot, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

I think that is how the song goes or something similar.  The temperature was in the teens and we decided to forgo an outdoor photo shoot.  
We played around with a few different looks and these are some of my favorites.
The flash was off camera and to the couple's left to emulate a non-existent light from the sun :-).  
Aperture 5.0, ISO at 640, shutter speed 1/60 second. 40mm
The ring and heart image was taken using a tri-pod and the 50mm f/1.8.  The aperture was set to f/4.0 to obtain a larger depth of field. Vanessa held the flashlight to the left which created the 'heart' shadow.  I added a touch of pink to the heart in photoshop.  

On the last image the settings were:
f/2.8, 1/60 second, ISO 400.
