This was my 2nd wedding. I shot his brothers a month ago and that went pretty well. I am decent in LR and PS, but I dont alot of experience with post for weddings or anything pro for that matter. The rest of the wedding shots are standard I had the harsh son on everyone and only one place to take shots really, and my ceremony shots I forgot to go back to auto ISO because I was going in doors and out non stop and left some shots on 800 and 1600 ISO that should not have been that I had to save in LR and they werent as good as they could have been. I dont plan to be a wedding shooter. I just wanted the challenge and learned alot. Editing 800 or so shots each puts 800 to 1600 mistakes in your face the following week! So you do learn quick. And I liked the pressure. I was organized, planned, and had a back up shooter, so it was fun. This first shot was with a 70-200 and 30 ft TTL cable attached to a 580EXII on High speed sync. Overall both couples were blown away with what they got. They didnt get pro level, but they also didnt pay, as they were my childhood friends and like family to me. It was funny though, half the guests had 7D's and 5D MkII's like they going to war!

Nice attempt here are my thoughts.

#1 i think you went a bit over board with your Hue saturation's , her dress is blown out in the front, to me the BG seems to dark and doesn't work
#2 is nice but still your blue is a bit over saturated
#3 is nice nothing bad i have to say about it

They're not bad for only your 2nd wedding. I've shot 19 weddings so far and I'm learning all the time.

My main gripe with the first shot is that it is too dark in parts - tree shadows, hair and jacket all a little too dark. Not a bad thing with the tree shadows perhaps but the hair gets a little lost in it and the jacket is lacking in detail/texture. You can bring some of that back in LR. Tricky shooting with a bride in white and a groom in black though!

I like the other two, no real gripes there. Good stuff :)

1. good, and it even looks like a nice sunset...but yeah, way over saturated.
2. really good 10/10 perfect focus, foreground, background, and composition.

Dude I totally get it! Thanks. I agree. I have been using these editing tools for a while but I really havent found my style or what I like. But as I have been stepping away and coming back I am wanting to desaturate some of my photos. But that leads to a can of worms and I never get to bed!
