I assist my husband and recently helped him shoot a destination wedding in Florida. Usually I assist with posing, equipment, office work, client communication, etc....

I was a hobbyist photographer for years and always wanted to take photos at a wedding, but somehow never got the chance. So while he shot this wedding, his first as main shooter and second ever, (and wow, did he ever nail it) I picked up his spare camera to get some angles and focal lengths that were a bit different during the first dance. I wasn't officially a second shooter, but I wanted to practice for future weddings as I'll be doing some SS duties in the future.

I haven't had a chance to really edit these, but took a quick stab in lightroom while still on the trip. I was quite pleased with them, and have several more I really like, and a few during the ceremony.

These were shot on the 7d with the Sigma 70-200 2.8 with IS. I know they are pretty simple shots, but I was happy. I hope to post a selection of shots from the whole wedding, which was really lovely.

So what do you think? Are these okay?

Sorry, I thought they were attached. Should be there now. Let me know if they don't show up, and beware facebook compression. :) I tried to attach as file, but it didn't work due to user error. lol

Not bad! The composition could be better on the 2nd with a little more of them in the shot. I'm guessing it was composed that way due to your focus point

The exposure looks good on both--even though both shots exhibit a different style (one quasi silhouette, the other more standard). I would have composed them slightly differently--tilting up a little more for the first shot so there heads weren't so near the top; and the second seems to have a little too much headroom (especially given that you can simplify the photo by cropping out the lanterns). But overall, they're both decent photos.

Thank you all. I debated cropping out the lanterns, but I sort of liked them. I see what you mean. Ultimately it's up to my husband to decide the final edits, or even if they will be included. I seriously haven't practiced in months. There was a time I shot more consistently, and had my camera set up for my shooting style. If I do SS I will be bringing my own camera and lenses, for sure. But for not running a camera for months, and never shooting high pressure events, I was happy overall. Yay for the exposure being okay. :)

Things move so fast. I agree the first could have more bottom room, for a less "chopped" crop, but I had just zoomed for detail, saw this moment, and couldn't adjust! :)

I did incluce too much floor in the second. I even cropped it down. I was thinking "artsy" and ended up clumsy, though I'm not so unhappy with the cropped version. :)

Thanks again! Appreciate the insight.
