Two from the lot. This was in the bride's suite right after getting ready / during the first look. CC welcome if you want.

Love the top one but her eye looks a little wonky... I would darken her hands on the lower one to bring out the Henna.

Love family portraits *LOL*

Thank you. I noticed that too with the eye. Almost looks as if a contact is loose, but on closer examination, it's just the white of her eye due to where she is looking, so I decided to leave it (for now). Might change my mind in the future.

I did darken the hand considerably because it was a bit overexposed sooc. The henna was already two days old by this point so the fading is natural.

Thank you again for your suggestions.

These are nice photos. I have no clue what a henna is, but when I look at the 2nd picture, I get the same feeling that I get when I look at something 4 inches from my face. Everything mostly is out of focus and it makes me dizzy.

The image leads my eyes to her face, and I can't see it! ugh.

Henna is a traditional artwork used mainly for women (but sometimes men) for Indian celebrations, especially weddings. It is the artwork on her hands. Most couples love the details and want their henna captured, so you can use it as the focal point in an image the same way you would use engagement and wedding rings as the focal point in American weddings.

I quite like them and I agree with scorpio's comments.

I have an Indian wedding (my first) in May and I'd love to see more for a bit of inspiration.

The first shot is lovely. Prism used? Personally, not sure if the curtain adds to the image, or detracts from it.

Like that you focused on her henna in the second image. But it needs more separation to get viewer's eyes to look where you want them to. And I think the groom's bright coat is a bit distracting even though I checked your histogram and it's not blown out. Maybe dial down the highlights a little bit?

No prism used in the first one. That was a chandelier hanging from the ceiling. I stood on a table and shot through it. Thank you.
