Hello, So finally I got some "balls" and said yes to a friends to shoot on their weeding.

I made many mistakes, as a newcomer, but I had fun taking the pictures, I took around 500 shoots from where 260 where "OK" and form those 250 57 were nice to have edit. I felt I took nog many pictures as I should have, but well gotta learn form all what happened that day.

Here are some shoots, c&c are welcome as far they aren't destructive, I want to improve my shooting and get better and better, just for my personal satisfaction :P.

^ op answered it already by mentioning "I made many mistakes, as a newcomer" :) haha I rarely see a good set when someone mentions they're first wedding. I don't know why/how 99% of the people think it's ok to do it when they don't know the basics and they don't have the proper gear. To the OP, tack it on as a learning experience and hopefully this sitation doesn't present itself again before you're better equipped with gear and knowledge. This isn't to sounds mean, just a warning for future thoughts of pursuing a wedding to shoot.

For the first one, I don't think you need so much sky. I could see two potential shots there. One where they're backlit by the setting sun so they get a nice soft romantic glow. Another one where you use the grapevines to create a leading line down the center.

He probably thought it was okay because his friends asked him to do it....

My friends definitely know my talent's worth, and if they asked me to shoot a wedding right now, I would laugh at them and ask them if they're joking, and tell them no. If they kept insisting and I had warned them of my skill level, and they still ask me, then it's fair game for a learning experience, fun, and sharing a moment with friends, regardless of my skill level. Not everybody feels it's 100% needed to have a seasoned vet to shoot their photos of their wedding, as long as some pics are taken.

Just a thought.


To the OP,

I can only see two photos, but just wanted to say, congrats for the opportunity, i'm sure it's a great learning experience for yourself.

Hello All
Thanks of the comments and for taking the time in within the pics.
@Oridus: Actually 1 year ago I rejected a friends proposal to take his wedding pic because I wasn't feeling confident, this time was different, they gave me some extra confidence and still they know my level they didn't go for a pro but game me the chance, I thank to them for that, BTW they are very happy with thte pics. :D

@mismos30 : " haha I rarely see a good set when someone mentions they're first wedding." Does that mean I got some ok? :P. is not that i don't know about photography, I have been shooting mostly nature, Wedidng is another level, but I was reading a lot and training shooting people outdoors and indoors (to test my skills when bouncing flash) hehe..


We'll this is a new path I'm taking, I hope more chances to improve myself will come, and thanks guys for the comments, I will keep them in mind when shooting once again.
