I had a chance to 2nd shoot at a very cultural Laoation Wedding last friday. I only had a chance to edit a few so far. Please let me know what you think. 40D+50mm 1.2 I just bought the 50mm 1.2 :D

These look a little soft to me (esp. #1) - but, maybe that's what you were going for ?

Nice poses, and otherwise nice photos, IMO

Looks to me like you are shooting wide open (1.2)

This is not easy and you may have a more pleasing result if you focus on the eyes.

I really like #3 and #4. Everything comes together well in these shots.

As mentioned, the DOF on #1 is just a little to thin, making the brides eyes blurry.

Love the pose and expression in #2, but her left side is a little dark for my tastes.

You can make it work if everything you want in focus is in the same plane, or you are far enough from the subjects that your focal plane is deep enough to capture everything you want in focus.

I agree that some of these look a tad on the soft side. I think these are well done. I like #3 by far. Nice expression. Nice lighting. Very nice!

for these kind of shots, i wouldnt shoot at 1.2. with such a shallow DOF you're only going to get a few features on ONE person's face in focus. for two people i would go for a smaller aperture. i like the shots too, i just wish they were sharper!

You have to use your focus points. Can't really recompose at 1.2. I learned that when I got my 85 1.2. I was like freakin piece of crap is soft. :)

That would be SWEET. I use 5ds 5dii and it works. Using the focus point and recomposing slightly around it is ok. You just can't center focus and recompose 2/3s at 1.2. Hope this helps. It was indeed trick at first, just don't think its the glass (85mm 1.2 piece of sh**) like I did. :)
