These two are getting married this weekend, we met yesterday to get comfortable in front of the camera. Challenging session as mid-day was our best option; everything was strobed. 5d3 + 135L Criticism welcome!

Simon, great pics. No 5 is superb, I would personally clone out the one leaf that touches his head, then a wall hanger in my opinion. :-)

nice.

some powder of the face would take out some of the shiny/oily look on the first. Not that you can do anything about the past, but might be somethign to carry along for the next one.

might also PS her legs in the first, the light angle is accentuating some not so flattering contours.

Lovely photos you posted and on your website! Just out of curiosity, which strobe do you use for your lighting?

It's a cheap Mettle 600AD paired with 622's and a Vagabond Mini. Pretty much parked at full power when the sun's out.

My shots never turn out like this. Where are you on the back ground exposure? I'm guessing somewhere around dead even.

I like the look!

On number 4 I like the grass in the foreground but the horizon going through their heads is distracting to me a bit. In my armchair QBing I'd raise the camera height a little.

I'm guessing he had to use a neutral density filter (2-3 stops?). Its obvious the lens is close to wide open and with 1/200 or 1/250 (if you cheat like me ;-)a ) sync on the 5dIII its hard to keep the ambient light down even at base ISO.

The background does not look 2 under to me. I do the same set at sync, but my ISO is normally lower.

I usually meter it so that the sky JUST starts to clip, and then I bring it down a bit in post.

No ND filter, I'm hyper syncing with 622's around 1/2000th.

Lighting wise I think you've done really well, there are no harsh shadows from the sun which is the hardest thing to sort out.

Really nice set of photos.
