A couple of weeks ago I bought a new to me 60D and a new Sigma 17-50OS. I thought I would give it a try this past weekend at a wedding I shot. So far I am happy with the combo. Here are a few pictures. I appreciate any CC.

Nice work! For the last image maybe bring the B&G further out and frame the party differently? Just an idea

First and second one are fine . The third one, a lot of the bridal parts are blocked. I would not use it.

Thanks for the advice. It will come in handy at my next wedding.

Like others have said, blocking people out of the photo isn't the best. A trick to get around this is by using a longer lens, and moving back a bit. You'll also get more separation of the bride/groom from the wedding party this way too.

I'd expect to have the bride and groom front and center in a group shot instead of in the back and center. And it's good to have the 2 people in a 2 person portrait to be at about the same distance from the camera in read of one in front of the other when you were wanting to get both faces in the frame, for DOF and appearance purposes.

Hey that was my first set up when I got into photography! But I agree with the others. 1 and 2 are good, I wouldn't use the third

My first set up was a Pentax K1000 back in 1982. I don't remember what lenses I had.

I'm also a Pentax shooter. Great cameras and fine lenses.

Or at least let the bride be the one in focus :-)

Thanks Brad but after seeing your pictures I need a lot more practice. Keep up the great shooting.

hmmm...Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this statement completely wrong?

A longer lens will compress the background moving it closer to the foreground. There will be less separation.

Spot on . More compression.
