How much do you usually charge for a wedding? My fiance and I are looking to get married in the near future. Are you willing to travel?

Seriously? Did you not read a single word of this entire thread?

The more I see these, the more the eyes trip me out. She's looking at me. She's LOOKING at me. Holy crap, she's really frikin LOOKING at me! Her eyes are practically glowing. Can she shoot lasers? :D

No seriously - they are great images, but the processing is not my style. I think if it was toned down a tad, I'd think these were awesome. But hey, style is style, right?

Remember - I'm just ANOTHER schmuck on the Internet with an opinion. :D

Aren't her eyes just amazing? Love brides like that!

And I'm not offended :)
Thats the great thing about this business - We all get to build our own style.
By toned down - do you mean less contrast? :D

I think he means less whitening done to the eyes. Admittedly, the brightness/contrast of the eyes is what immediately draws the viewers attention to them, but yeah, maybe just tone the processing done to the eyes overall.

I mean it's a tiny nit pick, but considering how awesome the photos are already, you don't really need super duper processed eyes to make them look great! Again, it's a style.

I know one photographer who does VERY processed pictures. The only ones that like his stuff are his models and (most of) his clients. It's very artsy looking. All the photographers I know think his stuff is kiddy play. Lots of multi layered colored gradients, weird flat lighting, fake catchlights, too much textures, etc etc etc. Photographers will pick and pick and pick because we're looking for stuff. Clients just want to like their pics.

For me processing makes the picture look cool NOW, but will I like that same picture in 5 years? 10 years? I try to get my pictures to look in a way that I'll still enjoy them now and in the future. I guess we'll see if today's trends become a classic "look" that endures the test of time.

But back to YOUR pictures! They're nice! (except for the irradiated eyes) ;D
Keep at it, and keep an open mind! I'm hoping we're all looking to improve. I know I am!
