I've been toying with photographing people over the last year, with an artist background I tend to favor a cleaner look that somewhat resembles a painting. I'm finally ready to ask for thoughts/comments on my new technique. Shot this at a friends wedding over the weekend and posted in the people section as I'm not targeting weddings. Posted only as an artistic style.

Any and all comments/suggestions/c​ritiques welcomed.

Troy

That's really a pretty shot!!! Their face may look a little squeezed together, but eh.

What might look cool here is if they turned a bit so we see more of the back of the bride.
This will cause the bride to have to turn her head more lifting the chin slightly, and cause the groom to have more of a straight on shot. In my head it works LOL.

Nice shot there!!!

Thanks Kechar, this is a candid shot, not posed as they were awaiting others for the actual photos. The background has been cleaned up. I was invited and he just said... "Bring your camera too". (my daughter's brother, like one of my own). Ended up taking the photographer's role as there wasn't any other than family point and shoots. I do look forward to advancing my people skills.

I like the processing. A posing suggestion. Foreheads together are great, but they'd look less smushed if their lower faces were a little apart. Also have her open her shoulder a bit. It gets rid of the hunched look and eliminates a few wrinkles on her neck.
