I've shot almost 30 weddings but this was only my 2nd Bridal shoot. I'm only about 40% happy with the results. So C&C would be helpful!

This was taken at the San Antonio Women's Club. Great venue! I'll post some more from this shoot soon.

It's not a bad photo but you might want to lighten it up a bit.

Here are a few of my bridals.

Colman, those are some killer shots - ALL of them. I'm jealous. Here's a couple of my recent favorites...

Like the image, maybe add a little light, but the biggest issue I have with this is that the image is crooked. If it were really tilted then it would be intentional, but it is off just enough that it needs to be straightened.

This was taken at the San Antonio Women's Club. Great venue! I'll post some more from this shoot soon.

I also really like this. Maybe a little brighter. I would also be curious to see what it looks like cropped tighter. I wouldn't mind loosing the pattern on the wall on either edge of the photo. Not sure that cropping that tight would leave the dress enough breathing room but I would be curious to try it.

Nice job!

EDIT: In looking at this more I would use a couple curves adjustments rather than an overall exposure update. Try just brightening the bride and the window treatment - not a lot - just a small tweak. Leave the outdoors, the walls and the rug as is as far as brightness.
