Hello as a wedding photographer some of them are well done, but in the bright sun light you should have used a filter.. But over all good job.

I agree with the others on the noise. Adding noise to an otherwise good image does not look professional.

A lot of them look, to me, overexposed. The sky is completely blown out in almost every shot. Somebody else mentioned a filter; that could have worked. You also could have intentionally underexposed the subjects with hope of keeping some of the other bright elements and correcting in PP.

I think the posing and composition is really well done.

Must be my internet connection, which is fast, but no issue at all with loading speed.

Overall I say nice job.

Your processing style is your style - if your clients are happy then it is great.

Before I get to my comments - his boutonniere was to be on the left side - not right.

My comment would be either or both of shutter speed or aperture - there were a number of pictures that were not as sharp as I would like to see (but overall it is somewhat of a mute issue) but I suspect you were using very wide apertures in too many situations and next time I would say to stop down a little more to get a little more in focus. If it wasn't aperture, which I think it mostly is, then you might want to try a higher SS - especially since you said your ISOs were pretty low for the day.

You may also want to check, if you are going to continue to use very large apertures, your front / back focus on your main lenses so you have a very good feel were each lens lays.

For a first time you did great

Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

My thoughts run along the same lines as those of randizzle and wallstreetoneil; many shots seem quite blown out and often the focus is quite shallow - in one shot of a couple the man was in focus and the woman wasn't. I liked the composition in a lot of the shots; good creative use of the venue. As your site says that your husband is your second shooter, I don't know who took which pictures, but the two of you may want to take another look at your work while considering some of the comments that have been offered. That said, I agree that your style is your style and if there's a market for the product that you offer keep doing what you're doing and enjoy the fact that the two of your are doing it together.

also wanted to let you know I didn't have trouble with the loading of the page fyi. Loved the shots I found some to be "overexposed" but I believe many people like the look, great work I hope the client was happy
