No doubt the toughest wedding for me last year. Mid summer wedding. No air conditioning, no food all day and difficult lighting conditions. All that said they were a fantastic couple. Thought I post a few of my favorites.

No clue why people have not commented here. I thought these were great. The bride is gorgeous here. Too bad her veil was wrinkled in the close up.

I love the kiss outside one. A little fill flash or reflector may have made the lighting just a little better.

Agreed.
I love the first B&W, lots of emotion there.

I was surprised there were no comments. The bride and groom loved them which is the most important thing.

Thanks for taking time to comments:)

Agree 100% on #3. It lacks contrast and need some flash fill.

Very nice set. I like the use of the OCF in #4. Well done.

Nice shots, what made it tougher than other weddings you have done?

1- Dof is way too shallow for my taste

2- I can see the flash in his head, also that outlet to the right, you can clean that up in PP

3- Maybe you could add some contrast ? other than that I like the idea.

4- I dont know whats going on here, but his left eye{face} looks messed up, could be dof again.

5- Love it

6-Another good image

7- Lots of purple fringing on their hair, dont think you could do much with, I hate it too but sometimes is unavoidable, did you use a 50 1.4? I ask because that's the reason why I sold mine, it used to drive me crazy.

8- Another great image, try to frame it better next time or clean out those fee on top.


Good job, keep on shooting.

I do not do well in HOT conditions and no food. Sure I had emergency snacks but it was a 12 hour wedding. I was spent at the end of the day.

#7 was shot with the 24 to 105. I think the fringing was from the DJ lights. My 85 1.8 fringes terrible but I still love the lens.

Loved the shots...especially the DOF on the shot of the rings. Nice colors in the bridesmaids dancing shot.

Shots turned out great IMO, although with #3 i'm not fond of the lighting/flash behind the bride.

anyway, did the bride and groom at least let you have a snack here and there? i hope they weren't being that strict on you taking photos constantly throughout the day, without a few mins of rest here and there.

i've heard bringing a bottle of water and some crackers can help ease the aggravation of hunger :lol:

Not the Bride and Grooms fault. They ceremony was Haitian and ran longer than scheduled. The venue really blew it. Guests were still being served at 10.30 pm !!Thanks for the comments.
