So, let me just say up front: I advised the bride and groom months in advance that professional wedding photographers get paid what they get paid for a reason. But, they wanted me to do it anyway. And I agreed after they went away and considered my words of wisdom.

Let me also say, I have nothing but respect for those of you who do this for a living. This was real work! I fretted over this for months, researched, planned, practiced, etc.

Anyhow, here are just a few shots from the day. I'm too tired to edit many tonight. I'm gong to sleep for a month after this... I'd appreciate your feedback.

Edit: Elray2375 was right. I boosted these a bit and did a little color correction - but not much on the color as they didn't look too off for me. Curious what others see. Maybe it is time to re-calibrate.

I'll post more when I've processed them.

Here's a few more added 3/9/2015:


Not thrilled with the hot spots here... but otherwise I like it:

Maybe a little underexposed, half a stop maybe. And maybe lower the red channel just a bit, their faces look orange on my monitor.

Hey, Matt - what does "B and Z" mean?


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Looking again this morning, everything I edited last night looked a bit under exposed. I updated the pics in the top post.

I think they look great! I didn't get a chance to see the originals. Skin tones look good to me. My only complaint would be that the highlights on the bride's face look a little harsh in the 3rd one, but not horrible. As far as the red channel that elrey2375 was referring to, again, I did not see the originals; but that could depend on your own personal style as well. I personally tend to like mine a little "under-saturated," but that's just me.

Good for your first time! It's definitely a ton of work and more physically demanding than you'd expect! I'm in the same boat, I always wanted to stay away from weddings because of the work load, but after many previous clients asked me to do it and me telling them I haven't before and suggesting they look to a pro, I finally took on a few this year. I think it's because a lot of them care about the price first, then the experience and not the other way around. And sometimes, you will get the ones who want the cheapest and expect the highest quality. I don't think you will have that problem and hopefully I won't either (fingers crossed). I always try to under sell and over deliver!

Thanks for sharing and looking forward to seeing more!

Do B & Z get married all the time or what? I know as photographers people don't think much on captions/titles but yeesh. still, they look good although the 1st two are quite similar so posting a variety is nice.

I'm assuming Bridgette and Zach are the bride and groom of this wedding that he shot.

But he is asking them how they do it all the time, then from his text, it is apparent that what they are "doing" is photographing weddings on a regular basis. So, doesn't it seem odd that he would be asking the bride and groom how they photograph weddings all the time? It doesn't make sense to me.

:lol: I can't tell if you're being dry-witty here or not.

Bridgette and Zach got married, presumably just once. Matt (OP) photographed their wedding, probably for free or almost-free.

Matt is spent after a long day of hard work, and wonders how professional wedding photographers photograph many weddings without dying of exhaustion.
