Overall, very happy with the shots. Here's a handful of personal favorites. The sunset in the last two is actually what we had, following a rainy and overcast day....

This beer bar one is the best! I really love the concept and the uniqueness about this photo. Good luck!

Thank you! It started with the bride having the idea and I ramped it up! The guests were behind us cheering....it was a really fun moment.

The bar shot is gold! Not to take away from the others, but that shot is awesome.

Yeppers, the bar one is classic I love it. the sunset pic is priceless, and I like the the last one too. Purple silhouette very original. Good work.


Why don't you take a picture, it will last longer....

I really like the rings in the glass with the sunset in the background. Not sure how I feel about the rings covered in bubbles though. If I didn't know this was for a wedding, I'd probably not have noticed the rings in there and wonder why the bubbles were there. You have great ideas! Keep it up!

Thanks again everybody. I agree with the bubbles on the rings....it was kind of a quick impromptu shot taking advantage of the sky. It had been gray all day, then at sunset, it just broke into this amazing sky.

Nice job!

1. Good shot. Is it normal to show just the wedding band though, and not the ring in it's entirety?? I've shot a few weddings, but haven't run into this, just curious.

2. I think this would be better if they were a bit further away from the tree, making them stand out from the background a bit more.

3. Good shot, not crazy on the processing. Looks like you lowered the clarity slider in LR?

4. As others have pointed out, I think this is the winner of the bunch, although could be improved. It's just a little unbalanced. If you had moved the whole group of guys further to the right, you could have had the bride in the center of the image, not cut off the girl on the far right's legs, and had less negative space in the top left.

5. This is cool, with or without the rings.

6. Nicely done.

Thanks for all the feedback. As far as the rings, I've seen so many different things....the bouquet didn't want to keep the rings up like we wanted and we kind of did what we could. I would have liked to have more of them visible as well. The closeness to the tree was somewhat dictated by the constant rain. We had a lot of nice scenic areas picked out with waterfalls and such, but it rained almost the entire day. That tree was shaped almost like a cave and kept everybody dry. My wife literally almost knocked herself out walking around the tree and walked head first into a branch. I didn't hit the clarity on the bride shot, that is one of the presets from onOne Perfect effects...I forget which one. I agree with you completely about the bar shot. Looking at it after the fact, I wasn't thrilled with the balance of the shot. And I forgot to build in for the crop.

Once again, thanks for all the feedback from everybody. This was my first paid wedding and was a HUGE learning experience. I shot a handful as a favor for friends or to help out other photogs prior to this, but this was my first where I was IT. It was exhausting but it was a lot of fun.

Thank you! I've got a couple lined up at the beginning of the year. It's been a slow start with mostly portrait work but I'm in no rush....this is a long term build for after my retirement from policing. This keeps me sane...lol.
