It's been a while since I've given specific feedback, but I have a few minutes, so here it is.
I think you've done a nice job getting nice natural expressions, with exception to #3, which is a little forced. I'm going to disagree slightly about brick being bad for backgrounds, I think it's fine. I also think your exposure is excellent and the tones are nice. However, there are a few things that I personally feel could have been adjusted to improve a bit.
1 - The BG is too close to his skin color, and with that bright blue shirt, his face almost gets a bit lost.
2 - Maybe just a bit of a crop so he's not so centered.
3 - The sharp transition of the different bricks right through is head is a bit of a bummer. I don't know if there was a better place without the transition like that. Changing the level could work, but then you might have a weird perspective for this type of shot.
4 - Again the line between the rocks and the door right behind her isn't great. I don't know if that red door was big enough, but that for the entire background w/o rocks would have been very cool.
5 - Really nice, just a nitpick, maybe cut a bit off the top for a little less head room.
6 - Since the BG is nice and symmetrical, I think having them more centered would have been better, to help with the symmetry. I might also suggest putting his arm in front of hers with their hands on her knees, so he's a bit more in front, instead of her being more in front of him.
7 - Nice, no suggestions from me.
Thanks for sharing
