I was very apprehensive about even shooting this wedding since I had only ever done one other wedding as a second shooter. But I did it as a favor to a friend and was completely forward about my lack of experience and the possibility that she might be completely unhappy with my work. I'd like some feedback to see if I did a decent job or not. So far the bride is happy with them. Here are some examples. Please, let me know what you think.

Might just be the monitor Im looking at, but #3 looks like you may have focused low in the frame with too shallow a dof and the ribbon bow at the top looks slightly oof.

Yup, possibly a bit to wide of aperture. I usually shoot those between f5.6 and f8.

#1 I can't really say much because I haven't had to do this either but there are better ways/angles to shoot... big women. Popular Photography had a great article on this a couple issues ago. I'm sure there is stuff on the net too.

These are all shot from a very low angle. Is that your typically shooting angle, or did these just happen to be the few that you shot like that?

I think it was just chance. The first one I was trying to get a shot without the road in the background, the second one I was down a step or two because it was the churches front entry, and the third I shot low intentionally. I wanted the knifes and cake to be in focus and the background blurry, I didn't think too much about the bow.

I like the second picture. The first pic is cute but not a flattering angle.

1 is nice but I dont like them in the center of the photo. The groom is looking somewhere else.
2 is nice but both their eyes are scary sharp for me + the skin is not natural.
3 well you know.

I didn't think I really did too much to their skin. Mostly just getting rid of under eye circles. Here's the original.

That will do it, it looks llike they had surgery. try not to take it all out. use a layer to bring back some opacity back in(lines back in).
