nice first attempt


i think the first needs a touch more exposure or brightening up of the subjects

liking the second

and the third looks shot in midday sun, which if you can is best to avoid

Thanks for the feedback, I heard you about the time of day for the fotoshoot , the last shot was shot around 5:50 so the sun was getting low , but still to intense, you can tell by their shadows , and the first one was on a shaded area at the beach.

First one needs some adjusting, 2nd I like maybe just a tad brighter but just a bit, the third, might have turned her or them a bit to not get that line across her face and body if you could have. And if not moving them, don't think you can not use flash here. Could have made that line less stand out or even take it away depending on what type of light you might use. We always use our strobes for those.

Having photographed 300+ weddings as a full-time photographer. Here it goes! I haven't posted in awhile but I wanna come back to the community I have grown my career on. Take with a grain of salt as every photographer has their own vision as to what we want to express on photos.

Image One - Definitely, underexposed. Don't have a bride push up against a grooms face/chin, gentle and sweet is what you need. As for a more pleasing photo for the bride, use her hair to cover some of her left shoulder/arm, it will remove some added weight which all brides want regardless.

Image Two - A little too much processing on the black and white for me, but that's a preference. For this particular shot, I would rather have the bride and groom with some interaction with each other, groom is looking too far out and can't really tell what the bride is doing. Make them talk to each other.

Image Three. - I know this is sunset, but his skin tones are a little too red. Don't cut off feet. Make the groom told and support bride on the mid-area, again it removes some weight and covers areas.

Keep at it!

I dont know if you helped the OP. I am no wedding photog (at least I try not to be) but even I learned from your comments for everyday shots of friends and family.
Thank you

The first one is very bland. Did you underexpose and then +ev with software?

The third one has the man pushing his head forward .. a lot. Move her closer. Also, turn them (if possible) so there isn't a harsh shadow on her face.
