Some shots my brother in law's wedding. Will give them the photos today. Hopefully they like them. It was my training for a full wedding shoot, including the blessing, a ceremony performed at home before going to the church. The mother of the bride is in hospital, so some parts of it were a bit emotional for her.

Let me know what you think

I think that they will be very pleased with them. Just a little nitpick be careful about what is going thru the head I find the gold end of the curtain rod a little distracting

You should be able to easily remove it. I doubt very much anyone is going to notice the rod is unsupported.

For indoors just bounced flash. Mainly from the ceiling or the wall behind me. In the reception it was quite hard sometimes as some walls/ceiling were partly red. Outdoors natural light, no fill

nice work.

might have used a bit of a (or more of a) bounce card on the flash.

I think I still prefer the first pose. I removed it, I think it looks better

Yep, left my bounce card in Dublin and realized the morning of the wedding (not good). That's why I was bouncing from walls behind me at the home.

if you haven't done a comparison, even the white pull up card can make a significant difference in facial shadows as in your first and last pic. Or you can use a rubber band and a larger piece of white paper. Not that the shadows are terrible, you did a good job with getting the flash bounced from behind you.

my preferred on camera flash set up for the situation you have above is to bounce pretty much exactly as you have and use something like I have described. The only time I use a larger bounce card is if the ceilings are too high and too dark, and I cannot get any space between myself and the subject.

Thanks, I honestly didn't think of a white piece of paper and a rubber band, as I only realized I was missing it 10-15 minutes before everything started. Lesson learned!

On a separate note. I am still thinking how to price my services for weddings. At the moment I have a package for a full day for €700 and I am planning to deliver around 200-250 photos edited. I think I am underpricing it, but I am only starting. What do you guys think? In Ireland thre are a good few under €1k photographers, but sometimes their photos are not that good. I just don't want to wedge myself into the "cheap" category.

Thanks!

I would rather price where i believe my services should be and offer a discount. As business builds the discounts go bye-bye.
