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?
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

^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.
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.
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.

Really like 5 and 6. What lens did you use for those?
Thanks, 6 was 24-70 2.8L, 5 was 135L
