colors are definitely powerful. Can you share a few of your techniques? Thanks

Sure! You mean specifically about the colors? The sun really helps in situations like this because it really lights up the colors outside and saturates them to the max. Our cameras (5D) as well as the lenses we used (50 1.2, 24 1.4, 135 2.0) also produce really nice saturated colors straight out of the camera.

And finally a little bit of curves in Photoshop goes a long way to take the colors to the next level :)

Hope that helps!

Perfect. That's exactly what I was looking to hear. Thank you very much. I'm saving your blog as a link of favorites. I finished viewing the first page and the personal page and I have to add, all your pictures are stunning: Even your personal pictures. Thanks for sharing

quality and composition are good.

i think for #1 i would have focused on the bride walking up rather than the groom.

#6 is too much tilting. seems like shes falling over.

overall it was well done.

WOW! That's amazing. These shots are unbelievable for that setup, I was expecting something... well.. no idea.. but .. well, more haha.

Do you use CPL filters or any light setups specifically?

Very, very beautiful shots. Truly great stuff.

For #1, I deliberately blurred the bride as to get your imagination going ;) But I can see some people wanting it the other way around. Thank you for your crits!

Hehe, nope. Nothing crazy going on during our photoshoots! Just the two of us with our cameras and lenses...no flashes, no filters (other than protective UV), no reflectors etc...

Thank you :)

Great images! They really pop. My favorite is the one with the bride by herself looking through the doorway.

Thank you, I really really like the way that one turned out too! I think it was taken by my wife.
