...but a friend convinced me to do one for friends of his. It was done as a favour, no payment, and had I not been there they would have not had any photos at all (barring the mobile phone shots by some of the guests). So, here we go...

The groom

So, honest critique. Bear in mind that I will NOT be setting myself up as a budget wedding tog any time soon, but I would be interested in how you think I did with what I had. :)

Cheers

#1 Not a flattering image. The flash is pretty harsh
#2 Light is flat and the girl behind on the right is a distraction
#3 It's ok
#4 The best and it could be improved in processing
#5 Good group shot
#6 ok but the tree is coming out of the back of his head.

I believe they will be happy with these.

Good luck :)

Up to him, his wedding. :)

Well, they were a freebie and I already told them in no uncertain terms that as far as weddings go, I am an amateur. :)

They will be very pleased with them, I am sure. Thanks for the advice.:)

Agree on No. 1, not flattering at all and I would not include it in the photos you give to them.

I suggest not using direct flash.
