Needless to say it was one hot wedding today in cincinnati, it ended up reaching 105 degree's at this location. I'm very new to wedding photography so cut me a break. Hope you guys enjoy.

I like your style! Can you show me what 3 looks like with the vertical plumb? I'm kinda sticky on that... Something seems a bit off. Like its not tilted or skewed enough to tickle me but just off enough to make me wish it was straight.

Why were some of these shot at 1600 ISO in daylight if I may ask? Just to add grain at the time of shooting, or you just wanted to shoot at a slower shutter speed for a reason?

^Looks like he was using Manual and then Av mode so he likely forgot the ISO was so high.

I think it makes sense to sometimes go up to around 400-800 ISO even outside at noon if it gives you sufficient exposure latitude to walk around at your longest focal length from different perspectives without having to worry about shifting ISO. But the ISO used in some of these shots were definitely beyond necessary.

That said--it's a moot point when using an unbelievably clean camera.

My critique:

The main thing that sticks out for me as an area for improvement is color balance--there are some dramatic differences between shots (compare 1 and 5), with 1, for example, seeming to produce a yellow veil and wedding dress. The color balance in 2 looks right on.

6 is great.

Really like 5 and 6. What lens did you use for those?

#6 is killer, absolutely beautiful shot.

really has the "end of a long day but time and energy for one more dance" feel to it.

The first one stands out for me - I really like how the color tones you chose for this event match bridal bouquet.

i think you've got a somewhat nice equipment, but you know gear can't beat knowledge and heart, so my congrats to you, nice shots!

Because it wasn't "daylight" it was all shaded with tree's for the most part and the storm rolling by was making the sun go in and out, didn't want to risk missing a shot in a darker area of the location either with image blur. I was also messing with my 100-400L there which is f 4.5-5.6;)

6 is great.

It was necessary when it was pretty dark outside as a storm was rolling in, here is my view. 1600 iso on a mark II = completely useable without any noise reduction. Why risk a blurry image ya know? its a wedding, no do overs. Better safe then sorry:) Whats funny is I NEVER use av mode at all because i hate it, but i decided to use it for the fact the sun kept going in and out of clouds so i didn't want to risk missing those "moments"

Thanks for the feedback, its hard to make images flow 100% when they were shot at totally different times. But i do know i need to work on my editing skills a ton.

revisiting, you have captured more love and emotion in that one shot (#6) than lots of people hope to ever catch. perfectly captures all aspects of what a wedding day is, hectic yet wonderful. the fatigue and heat shows on his face yet that what makes it special. that smile is very telling, pure love in that face.

seriously, its got to be one of the best wedding pictures i have ever seen.
