Absolutely fantastic. Love the impact of the imagery, and the PP is great. Well done!

Thanks Babe :)
Tx Quasiphoto(hehe!!) & Nicole!
Collierportraits, thanks for your c & c! :-)

Don't get me wrong, I fully agree with you that there needs to be photos included that are more of the 'norm'. They are there, just not here. From what I have learned so far is that there is always a little something in a photographer's style that makes them unique. That makes someone hire them or not. If anything, when I do an album for my couple there will be loads of the 'norm' styles in, but also a few of my own.

Gorgeous bride and nice images, BUT (sorry) does the bride want these hanging on her wall in 10 years? Commenting on the 'gritty' location. Yes, it appeals to us photographers (albeit a bit overdone!) but what about a bride that wants to be beautiful and fashionable and glamorous and sexy? The background isn't any of these, but it appears that is where all portraiture is headed?

Sorry, not so much a commentary on your work, but yes it's on the work as well. Wouldn't her beautiful home been more personal and mean more to her? This looks more like a shoot with a model wearing a wedding dress, because surely this isn't a bridal portrait for her and her mother? That's my point, and NOT a comment on your expertise which appears to be in abundant supply. ;)

I think that's going to depend on the bride. There are as many brides who want something 'gritty' or out of the norm like Eliza mentioned, as there are brides who want the glamorous clean perfect look you mention.

My first thought when looking at these photos was 'Wow nicely done.' My 2nd thought was 'cripes I wish I could pick up those buildings and park them next to my house and rent it as a wedding venue.'

No complaints here. Lovely shots, great lighting, & excellent exposures. #1 and the last one would make very dramatic B&W's.

I think #1 is absolutely fantastic...

And I have to say I disagree with the previous poster. If my photographer at my wedding would have been so creative to shoot these images I would have proudly hung them on my wall. I think they are incredible images.

What a stunning set of pictures - great use of location that really sets the brides beauty off so I think she would love them in years to come....

If I ever get into weddings, just like you, I'm going to be "too busy" to shoot ugly brides ;)
