These shots were shot with my leads light set up and assistance by me but I edited them. My brother was my main shooter. Please let me know what you think about these.

Does the bride have a scar on her right cheek? As for the photos, I am seeing them all centered and that does not work for all shots.
On number 1, that light is just plain distracting. Need to find a better angle/crop to get rid of it and other distractions. It took me quite a bit of time to figure out that was a piano they are sitting at. WIth such a great prop, you need to either accentuate it, or get rid of it.
#2, the window is competing since it is the brightest part of your frame. If you could crop it a little tighter so the light is gone, I think it would help.
#3 and 4, the rail of the stairs is right in the middle of the image. If you had taken a step to your left, you could have gotten the bride and groom both completely in the image with out the rail hiding most of his left side.
Keep practicing and you will see these things instinctually. I still have some of the same issues with putting things in frame that stepping one way or the other would have solved. The more you shoot and practice the easier it is to see it at the time of shooting.

3 and 4 are great images but that hand coming from no where ruins the shot,would have been nice if he moved the hand or if u moved to your right to get more of his body so u could see the arm connected to the hand placed there,number 2 is great,love the pose and the bw conversion and the location suites the bw,number one is nice but its a bit busy with clutter but still a nice photo

Yes she has a scar on her right cheek. I'm glad you guys like it and I'm realizing now that it would have been bebetter if I was just to the left a bit haha. I have another of #1 that's cropped a lot more and less cluttered.

Those stairs are just too busy with different colors and patterns. Also that bannister post is right in the middle on your photos and "in the way" I feel. They all, but the bride photo, look like you used too wide a lens. The more I shoot the closer I compose and the longer lens I use.

If you look at it the groom is barely more than a head in photo 3 &4 hidden behind that bannister. Choose a batter perspective next time.
