I haven't shared in a while so I wanted to share a few from my first Monterey, CA wedding. LOVE that city, wouldn't mind shooting there more. They have some really brave squirrels. As always, C&C welcome.

5) Totally not technically great, but I love this pic. Right after the bride walked down the aisle this guy hops right on the officiants foot and proceeds to eat the ribbon. Throughout the ceremony he also eats the flowers and, at one point, took a bite out of the bride's dress.

And for whatever reason it wouldn't me post #8...

8) This is just a fun one. The bride and her cousin were pretending to be celebrities. :)

You like taking photos of brides at low, wide angles...and on-camera direct flash in some form, whether bracketed or otherwise.

#2 is just no good IMO. Nothing IMPORTANT is completely in focus...OOF elements compete with in-focus elements...
#6 - size of elbow in 6a, hand just floating without purpose in 6b.
#7 dress blown out, odd feel to the color and contrast overall...personal preference.

#1 is the best set of photos both processing-wise and compositionally IMO.

Here's another series of him and his dastardly deeds:

IMAGE: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-qRVhd7sLDus/T5eIIds5IeI/AAAAAAAACXE/Ew80-eswVT0/s640/2012-04-24_010.jpg
The first one he's out of focus because I didn't even realize he was in this one! I was taking pictures of the flowers in the aisle and he must have jumped in. I love it, though, because it looks like he's smelling them. But you can tell in the second one he was clearly eating them.

He was a hoot but I did come *this close* to kicking him like a soccer ball. Little butthead had the nerve to jump on the bride's dress and start chewing on her lace just before the kiss. I knew the bride had plans to re-wear the dress and didn't want it ruined, so I had this internal conflict going as to which should win out- my desire to photograph it or make an attempt to save the dress. I opted to save the dress since my brain assumed that would be the action that would make the bride happiest and scooted forward with the intention of booting him off but he saw what I was up to and fled. The guests were cracking up and the bride had no clue. In the end, my decision was the correct one. There was a small chew mark on the dress but not nearly as bad as it could have been and the bride, once she learned why I kicking her, was grateful. :)

Nice work, agree that #7 could use more detail in the dress.

Oh, and something about these pictures has been bothering me since I posted them and I just realized what it is... I started using BlogStomp and this is the first series I've used it on and I didn't realize that BlogStomp sharpens images. Well, my images are already sharpened to how I like them and now they are OVER sharpened. Problem fixed but I'm not going to worry about changing out the images. But if you're thinking "OVERSHARPENED!" don't worry, I caught that too and figured out why!

So warning for BlogStomp users! If you already sharpen to your liking you'll want to uncheck the sharpen box in the Preferences section!

Yea I was going to say, great photos but there is something with the web hosting quality that quite frankly it sucks!
