The b&w ones don't have anything for me (except #2). I guess it is the lack of contrast.
I like the color photos better (except the last one which has the dirty windshield and valet tag). B&W might be better there to "hide" the dirt ;)

One thing about the photos that is great, you catch great emotional moments. *thumbs up

This is much better, I agree. B&W plus cleaned up the dirt a bit in PS. As for the tag, it's where one of them works and it's kind of a part of the story

It's good to get some dramatic light to highlight the couple in these pictures. The current light is kind of flat and pictures are looking not that exciting.

Have you tries to have off camera flash for the indoor images? it makes big different for wedding photography as it creates directional light and more depth to the wedding images. It also emphasizes the subjects and separates them from the rest of the clutter in the images.

Hope that helps,

Can I ask what type of camera you used? and what type of lighting you used? And did you used L lens when you took them?

3/7 of these photos have the bride and groom doing the same kissing pose. I'd like to see some more variety in the shots you share--you probably have a lot more, obviously.

Not using off-axis lighting really really shows in photo 6. There's just no dynamism to the photo and the B+G get lost in the scene. Learn to control light. 3 definitely looks a little nicer, but still I think the photo would sing if you isolated the couple from the background with a well directed off-axis light.

Good composition, good moment in photo 5.
