Some C&C if you are interested.

1. I dont like the vignette, but I barely like any vignette. The flash is a bit harsh here, but I feel you did a decent job of getting the venue and architecture into it.

2. The right side of the image looks cute, but the left side (camera left) needs better posing. The girl on the far left of the photo is too turned into the bride, and I feel both girls on the left need to be post like both girls on the right (again, camera right). That being said, I feel its a bit cheesy (as most of bridal party shots are) and I dont really get why they are pulling at her dress.

3. Again, cheesy but its well executed. I would like you to know that I am not harping on you for being cheesy, but the act of bridal party shots, and some bridal parties, lend themselves that way. It might have been nice to get a vertical of this too so you can get the tower in the background.

4. A bit too bright, and I feel I loose a lot of detail in their skin and dress. Also, it would be nice to see them touching a bit more, maybe have the groom help hold the dress.

5. Nice shot, and you did a good job photographing the hands. I have a hard time finding poses that dont make hands look large. It also looks like you told her to smile rather than it coming naturally. Tell the groom to whisper something in her ear to get her to laugh and you will have a much more compelling image.

6. They are too bright again in my opinion. A bit centered composition wise as well.

7. This looks like a much more natural moment, and great exposure.

8 This one doesnt do it for me for a few reasons. 1 - the skin tones look odd, and you can see the lines on her arms. 2, its almost a maternity pose. If shes pregnant, hands on belly works fine. If shes not, I try to avoid it. You also dont see the flowers. I would love to see her bouquet and his boutonniere, but you dont see either of them (fully).

Harsh, but.... to sharpen the blade, one must push against an abrasive stone. I'll take it! :)

For what it's worth, these are still the un-photoshop'd proofs (wedding was a day and a half ago). The real edits come when they order pictures so that I know what to spend my time on. (not an excuse, just an explanation of where I am in the process)

I actually like the first one. It's got a little drama to it. The temples are usually very light and have lots of beautiful landscaping around them. When you can get some drama with clouds, it's a good thing. As far as the dress being blown in some of the images, you can fix that with a little editing to get the details better, but all-in-all, David, nice job. I don't usually take wedding pictures out west, but I love this particular temple and that view from the parking lot.

Thanks. Yeah, most temple pics are "light and airy" and I was going for some drama with this one. It does mean that it doesn't "fit" real well with the rest of the images.... but I'm hoping they like it anyway. :)

Thanks Suzy! :)

Agree on everything except #5. I think it looks fine.

I like the drama of the light in the first. I actually said, "wow" and hubby asked what I was wowing about, so I showed him. I'm a bridal party shot hater, but whaddaya do. Shame she had her flowers wrapped in red ribbon, it looks really distracting. Their individual flair, I guess. I'm sure they will love it. I'd like to see that fourth shot again if you do some more work to it. If they'd held hands, would have been perfect!

#4 is completely un-staged (other than telling them to walk towards me and to continue to interact with one another - then I ran ahead of them with the camera). You can see the sequence of images here: http://www.dterryphoto​graphy.com …42zvMp#14844367​51_sRCfg6R (external link)

Love #1 - but agree the vignette is a little heavy
