first let me start by saying... I NEVER do people. I suck pretty bad at it to be honest.

but my best friend wanted to have me do some "save the date" photos.

here are some that i thought turned out well.

I really don't like how this turned out. She really really wanted to do this. So this is the best I could do...

Overall I think they're pretty good. The balloon photo is a good idea, but you really have to be directly overhead for it to look right.

yeah I really struggled with that. she was pretty deadset having at that location. It is actually her classroom where she teaches. So she wanted to have the recently refurbished 1875 floors as the back drop. If i had to do it again I would of done it completely different

Now that I'm thinking about it, if they flipped around so that their heads were closer to you, that might look better as their feet would get smaller as they went further from the camera. Then you could flip the image 180 in post.

Looks like you used natural light in all the photos?

love your balloon idea, but both B&G hand should be more vertical to showcase the real action and leave more space on top, I know it's not easy, hehe.

Good work.

I do like the use of the floor and balloons. I'd be careful with that clone tool though, your lines can be detracting when they don't match. Was there a chair there or something?

The issue I had with the ballon shot was I had a very small surface to work with. Also I could not raise the camera any higher because of the ceiling. So if proved to be very difficult to try and get a clean image.

I really should have used the PS clone tool. They ended up not using that one because it didn't turn out how we wanted.

I was there actually. My legs feet and a step ladder was in the photo.

And thank you for the kind words everyone. I think they are pretty happy with the results

I love the thought process behind some of these shots. My biggest piece of advice is to keep the tones of the set similar, you can lose the cohesiveness of the overall shoot.
