I wouldn't assume this was a pair of same species if the male and female were photographed seperately on different days. However, I do agree with Masked Trogons for the following reasons:

Female - obvous facial mask that Collared wouldn't have and also all yellow bill where Collared would have a black culmen.

Male - the red eyering would eliminate the Collared. The only thing I don't like is the undertail pattern on the male. It is not a real good match with the Masked but I am going to chalk that up to the amount of wear and tear on those fethers.

The female shows some black on the upper ridge of its bill but that may be wet whiskers (photo below for a closer look). I have seen photos posted of female Collared Trogon with facial masks AND black culmen which is confusing

Entirely agree with all of this. The linked Macauley library photo is showing a black culmen for female collared which is diagnostic of that species. The OP photo shows a clear yellow bill instead.
