Ive seen the other work for the most part. I know mine isnt "up to par" with theirs but I believe I made a great first attempt. I noticed alot of things I could have done better now that ive had time to reflect on the event. I am going to get some photography books here soon and practice some more with friends and what not to better capture. I noticed tonight my biggest problem was capturing the movement, even on a tripod. I need to practice panning and all that I guess too.

your work doesnt have to match to theirs. You create your own style.

I humbly believe that there are two factors that finesse the images we all create. Light and Vision. I would suggest to place the viewer of the iamge where he or she is unable to be. Give them the ability to view a perspective they haven’t seen before, enabling the photograph to transcend the mundane and mediocre.

cheers.

I've seen worse first weddings, but i've also seen ones that are a h3ll of lot better too. Things I think you need to learn are focus (kiss shot is focused on the wall behind), exposure (most are underexposed), color temp (lots of yellow photos), and posing. There aren't really any nice ones of the two of them together, but I was only looking at thumbnails as your gallery system sucks - it's too slow and won't let me open images in tabs.

Did you use a diffuser for the flash? There are hot spots. But I think the first page of images had some stiff poses. Posing in front of the tree is a good idea, but in reality, not too interesting. For a first try, you got a good selection, but I recommend that you really zoom in to see people's reactions and crop closer.

I agree... shoot tight, crop tighter. There were a number of shots that the back of somebody's head was in the composition. I'd crop those photos tighter on the main subject and get rid of the clutter.
