Here are some recent shots that we did of a beautiful wedding at a golf course. When doing a lot of weddings each summer some events seem like a job, like work. Then sometimes there are couples that you gel with so well it actually becomes something more than work, an experience in sharing in their lives and being able to offer them something special, this was one of those couples. We had a great day and got what we think are some beautiful shots for the bride and groom. CC Welcome!

edit: by the way 5 is a special shot that was salvaged from my poor attempt at a silhouette be mindful that is the main reason its processing seems so different.

I remember you posting #5 somewhere else as well. I think it's a fantastic salvage and it reminds me of a storybook image. GAWD I love RAW/recovery. Great work overall. Especially love #3 and #6.

Love the shots, great work.

Curious as to where around the Ottawa region these shots were taken?

#5 just seems to be a nice classic image. One that will endure the time- Great shot!

#5 is golden!bw!,

18-55IS, 28-105USM, 50 f/1.8, 60 f/2.8,
finally 70-200L f/4!!:cool:

Here's my take:

1. Nice.
2. Nice. Great moment captured of the bride.
3. Nice.
4. Nice.
5. Don't like the fact that she's centered. don't like the processing. The trees look funy...were you going for the painted look?
6. Dedent shot. Would have been better if the child's face could be seen. Framing feels tight.
7. He's looking elswhere. Doesn't work for me. Processing is not my cup of tea.
8. Nice...except that little twig or whatever it is that is sticking out from the ground in the middle of the frame. Not crazy about the processing.

Overall, I think these are well done though...

this picture was supposed to be a silhouette but didn't work so It took a lot of pp to get it usable. That is why the trees look the way they do.

Thanks for the C&C!

No C&C from me. They're beautiful photos. The couple should be very pleased with your work. He looks fine, she simply radiates, and together they look great. Her gown is beautiful, btw. Numbers 2, 3, 5, and 7 are probably my favorites.

Very nice work. :cool:
