Default Father of the Bride

One of my neighbour's daughter was getting married and I just had to hang around and get a few snaps.

1 - Think I blew the highlights in the dress


2 - Printed this one as a 10x8 for him. Has it in a frame in his living room

Number one looks like you could actually go a little brighter to me. It calls for contrast. Number 2 is a great moment. I always love the father daughter photos, its such a bittersweet time for them.

I agree about the first shot; it seems underexposed (and would suffer as a print). All I did was a quick curves adjustment

The dress looks fine. Unfortunately, I think the window and curb are major distractions. Watch your backgrounds. Second shot is nice though

Many thanks for the replies and advice. These two photos were literally taken as the bride and her father were leaving for the church, no time to pose them Having said that I was just there as an interested neighbour
