This month was my first time shooting a wedding as a lead. I've done a few weddings as a second shooter. I am always looking to get better, so please feel free to critique my work.

Hopefully you enjoy them!

That place is gorgeous! So as your photos! I really liked the first dance shots, that smoke really added a nice touch to it!

I went through your set on the website too. I think they are great. I wish there were one or two more personal/sentimental/e​motional moments captured though.

Thank you everybody! Facedodge, I agree with you. I had asked an allocation of time for the first look and maybe sometime in the rececption but they were so tight on the timeline they decided to skip through a lot of thing those being one of them. I try to urge my couples to spend a little time taking photos as a a couple even if it's 20-30 mins. I will keep that in mind next time!! Thanks

Rodney, congrats. Your first wedding gigs looks like it was a big success. It's a pretty cool looking wedding to boot!

How many other weddings did you shoot as the second shooter before taking your first main gig?

In the first dance shots, are those strobe lights going off all around the room?

Thanks!

I second shot for one wedding, and I was assisting for a successful wedding studio for about 3 weddings. In the first dance photo those are strobes on the back wall. I put one strobe per corner and shot against the lights most of the time.

Thanks everyone! As for flash most dance shots I used on camera flash and I used off camera flash as fill light/flare. I was shooting mostly at iso3200. As for the exact settings I am not too sure what they were.
