Nice job. And if a first which I believe, it definitely helps when you have an attractive couple.

Thank you! Yes, it certainly does. They were quite easy to photograph!

#1 - no need for a boob shot.
#2 - is this a suit commercial?
#4 - no need for a bald spot shot.
#9 - I hope that grandpa aint died in the chair.

On the first one, I like that shot but agree with the way you did it. A bouquet usually is best with it and most of the time looking right at the camera with from the neck down and the flowers by the breasts.
on 2, not really an issue for me, the guy looks like a model and it is what it is.
on 4 completely agree, would have filled that in. No one likes looking at their hair when it is thinning.
on 9 I kind of laughed looking at it a little more closely and the comment. I know what you were going for but...... probably would have cropped it and maybe even passed on it.

But again nice job for first wedding!

Thank you for the constructive feedback! I appreciate it!

#1 Some context - The bride's sister made her dress for her and she wanted a couple detail shots of it. Due to the tight schedule and because her hair/makeup ran 45 minutes late, I didn't have the opportunity to do any dress shots before she put it on, so I had to go with a "boob shot" in order to get a closeup on the dress. Are there any other angles you'd recommend to get this type of shot with the dress on?
#2 Agreed, I'm not sure why photos featuring the suit would be an issue. The groom's attire is just as important. Every wedding photographer I follow always gets plenty of suit shots.
#4 I'll be honest I don't see a bald spot? There's a spot where his hair is maybe laying weird, I probably could have smoothed that out a bit.
#9 That was the groom's grandfather, and that's just kinda how he looks. They all seemed quite happy he was there so I wasn't worried about him being in the shot. I did consider cropping him out but figured I'd leave it and let them crop it if they wanted.

Do you a fantastic job for your wedding! IMO I'd lower the contrast in some of the images. Also image 1b...I feel like the focus is her boob. I'd bring in the crop if you want to keep that image.

Thank you! Yeah, okay, I can see what y'all are talking about. It's something I'll definitely keep in mind next time. Hopefully I'll be able to just shoot the dress before the bride puts it on so it won't be an issue :-)
