I have no wedding experience and just do photography as a hobby. My grandson asked that I be the photographer for his wedding. I reluctantly accepted to save the expense of a pro. Here are few shots from the wedding. Your feedback would be much appreciated.

Pretty bride but a little OOF.

What's the sort of dark bar looking thing stemming from her right shoulder in picture 1 ?

#1 looks like it focused on the flowers instead of her eyes. Using single point AF on the eyes and perhaps stopping down a little more would help. Also, it looks like there's halos around her shoulders and other parts. Over sharpened or over compressed maybe?

Thanks for the critical review. Helps to make me better.

That's a portion of the stand mirror.

You did a good job!

First pic - Pretty bride, nice pose, but the brown snake on her right shoulder is a distracting, and it looks like the camera focused on her nails.
Second pic - Nice candid, you captured the moment! but you cropped too much, and I would prefer the background a little more blurry so your subject will pop even more.

Looks like the location is really nice. Show us more if you can...

The post in #1 needs straightening. Auto in LR or full should do it. And clone out the mirror. Yes, AF failed but it's not too far out. I'd call it a good save. Was this pulled of Facebook as that would account for the compression. That, coupled with the extra sharpening you needed probably caused this.

Pretty Lady. I bet your grandson is a happy camper :)

I bet they love the photos.

Like the others the first shot looks a bit OOF. We have all done that.

I would like to see some other photos.
