I shot my sisters wedding this weekend. I know that not everyone will like the angle I went for, but thats what I wanted. Hope you like :)

It sounds like you don't want critique about the angles--but, especially in the second shot, the pointless angle skewing is the aspect that hurts these photos the most.

They both wanted the angles, it was the couples choice. But I still appreciate the feedback :) Thank you.

Imho, the issue isn't that your shots are angled, it's how you executed them. As a photographer it's up to you to take a clients desire and make it work. I don't feel that these work. Using a background that has so many stark straight lines and angling them just doesn't work in that 2nd pic. I don't know what you had to work with but I would of tried to find backgrounds that worked with my angle instead of detracting from it.

Edit: I shall not use the word "work" for the remainder of the day, lol.


Some moments are too amazing to be ruined with words.

Lol, thanks for the feedback. There wasn't a lot of places to be honest, it was a shame as the floods have made most of the village out of bounds, there was a local church which was pretty high up where we took some shots, and there was a few places local to the hotel. I really do appreciate the feedback about the angles, not everyone's cup of tea and I really see what you mean with the lines with the building. Thanks again :)

Well aside from that Mrs Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?

I hope you have insurance: I suspect you will be sued for injuries due to careening necks.
