OK, lots of views and no comments yet to OP. I will start the ball rolling but be aware that I am no expert in wedding photography.
All the images seem over exposed to me and as a consequence lots of detail lost. The first set appear to have a problem with White Balance.
Not sure about all the "long distance" shots.
There you go - get your teeth into that and give the OP some helpful feedback - as I say, I am no expert and you can possibly tell that from what I have observed.

During the busy months back to back weddings isn't uncommon. It's the back to back weddings where you have to travel that are tough. Just had one in Savannah, GA and Columbia, SC back to back this past weekend. Getting home late and rising early. Not my style haha.

I have this thing where I must transfer all the files to my computer when I get home, import to lightroom, edit a few, check them over to make sure they turned out alright, go to bed while backing up, rinse and repeat.

All is fine until I have to go to my regular job Monday morning

thanks for the feedback. Agree about over exposing, however I think the image quality has degraded by the file sharing.

You have to be careful with your highlights... as your eye naturally goes to the brightest part of the photo. With that being said, the only ones I would say that are too hot are 2, 6, and 7. The rest work...

In regard to 2 weddings in 2 days... we've shot 2 weddings in 1 day. The first started at 7:00 in the morning with an early ceremony and lunch reception. The second wedding started at 2:00 and wen't until 9:00. Even then, that hasn't been our longest wedding day. We were actively photographing this wedding (external link) for 16 hours straight.

As I said earlier in this thread I am no wedding photography expert but having just looked at your mile high set, I am truly inspired .. and envious. Lovely set that gives out all the vibes of a great atmosphere at a fab wedding. Thanks for posting

For the first few photos, I thought there was some major fringing going on but looking closely it was purple on the trees lol I would also be careful of highlights also the rest look good =)

Just about every wedding I shoot sees me shooting for at 12-13 hours. Addding travel, backing up and doing some sneak peeks to that mean most weddings are 15-16 hours for me.

This was 16 hours of shooting. No traveling, besides 10 minutes between Mile High, Church and Mile High again. No backing up. I think I had two pieces of pizza the entire 16 hours. Vendor meals :rolleyes:
