Here are a couple of shots from my first real wedding (in a church).

These were shot yesterday with a 1DX & 24-70 F2.8 II and a 85 f1.2.

C & C is appreciated

These look pretty old school to me-not that there's anything wrong with that. Kind of like a 1960s-70s vibe with the harsh directional keylight during the recessional and soft white vignetting and pose of the second.

Funny you say that. In post, that was my goal ... to make them look old school.
... but when shooting them, I wasnt intending on the on camera flash to be so harsh. :lol:

Here is the original (soc) jpeg ...

You have 'Image Editing OK' on... pardon me if you weren't looking for this kind of input. :)

I'm on a real low-contrast bender right now.. and with your image, I think it kind of helps with the hard lighting. What I did here was lift the overall shadows a bunch and then also lifted the blues up a bit. (all in curves) ...and then I did a tiny bit of fake tilt-shift for fun.

You got the gear, now you got to get the editing site sorted out. The B&W white is better than the glowing ring shot.

I like the b&w shot a lot, but the picture of the flowers/rings is kind of weird looking...Is there a light in the flowers?

Thanks for the comments, everyone.

The ring shot was lit with a small LED flashlight at cameras distance, just left of of camera.

I like painting with light but not sure how others like this kind of stuff.

I tend to be lazy & use only CS6 when I should be using LR4 also. :confused:

The people in the shot are quite distracting. If you had lowered the angle of view it would have made the couple more prominent and the people less distracting. That's just my point of view.

Thanks. I will shoot from both angles next time. Options are always good.
