Alex, good job for your first wedding. Do you plan on shooting more? It may take 2 or 3 weddings before you develop a work flow and style of shooting. I do very little posed if any at weddings I don't really focus on getting the best shot I just capture moments.

be inspired

Yes I do! At least 3 more this summer, and I have my first "on my own" wedding July 2012.(daughter of close friends) :D
And thank you for the words and how you shoot. Very inspiring. (:

I love #6 - I saw ALOT of shoe shots today (forum browsing for inspiration for a wedding shoot tomorrow) and this was by far my favorite! :)

Good start! You will work into this well. You have a good eye fot these shots, check out some wedding sites to get ideas on posing.

Just remember to develp a professional paranoia as you work in to wedding photography. I NEVER shoot a wedding without a second paid professional photographer that I trust. Just like you need backup equipment, you need a backup photographer. Because there are no "do overs" - if you get sick, or twist an ankle, you can not go to the bride and groom and say "let's do this next week".

Enjoy learning wedding photography and as I have seen, you work well with people and will do well in this arena!

Beautiful. I too kind of wish the mirror had more DOF, but it doesn't bother me. Wish I could have done half that well for my first (and only), lol. Please keep doing it, you've got a great style.

2 & 3 are the best for me. I'm normally not a fan of vintage PP, but it looks great in #3. #1 has too much harsh sunlight/shadows. Great job!

Yeah we weren't over joyed with the "first look" location, but it was the best with what options we had! Thank you!
