Thanks for the cc. the close up sweaty one was the ceremony. They were very low budget. I was probably the most paid vendor there. The clothes were what they wanted to wear for their union.

No problem for being critical... I can take it. I really did like the first one, As for how flattering it was, the man at the tree is disabled, and limiting on posing with his head. I was more after capturing the emotion the two had for each other, and for him. It was as flattering as I could get... but Ill keep that in mind and try other options as well.

Did not mean to come across to critical. If knew the circumstances might have responded differently. One thing I will mention, even low budget, I might have done some touch up on that sweat on the face. Think ahead, would not have taken long and who knows who is going to be seeing it? This might sound profiling or whatever but it is not, we do about 4 to 5 same sex weddings a year, all referral, and we get paid more then any other wedding we do. So you never know. That sweaty forehead might have cost you a job and you don't even know it.

Oh yes, I do get that. And actually this one has got me 2 bookings. That subject sweated a TON... he told me about it before hand. I actually suggested a head band, but he was not into that. Wipe it off, it was back like that... bang. Poor guy.. never met someone that sweated more than me. When we did our solo shots we were able to control that, but during the ceremony he preferred to just go with it.

Never be afraid to be critical. If someone cannot take that, they wont last in this business.

Why don't you take a picture, it will last longer....
