Nice work as always Nick. 7 is my favorite, 8 is hilarious and I love the composition of 4, but is it me or are the subjects a little soft?

The detail shots are great too.

I've been meaning to ask you. Your makeup macro shots - do the clients like them typically? I think they're awesome, but every time I get too close to a bride's face, most of the time they panic a little. Using a 100 would help as it gives you a little distance I guess. Also, do you find you have to cover up a lot of blemishes considering the fine detail of the shot?

It seems like the type of shot other photographers would appreciate more than clients....

I think #4 might be jpeg compression. It would have to be REALLY soft to show up soft at these sizes!

I usually let them (bride and MUA) know I am going in with my macro and usually mumble about the shots looking awesome. :) You might be right about photographers liking them more than the bride b/c it is rather close. I think it depends on the bride. Just another type of shot to add to the total throughout the day you know?

Yeah that makes sense. I always like looking at them when you do them.

1. IMMHO, from this angle, she looks like a Man
2. Nice
3. I love it.
4. Awesome, but there is a Mermaid on the other side of the bridge that I would clone out :)
5. I like
6. Great cake shot. Sitting card - a bit more dof would be great
7. Beautiful moment captured. Her face is a bit blotchy (nip picking)
8. Great shot! I am not sure that was a good thing to do to older Folk though :)

As for #4, yeah, I know. There was indeed a Mermaid statue on the other side. I'll clone that out before I deliver.

I'm now on my home computer and it doesn't look at all soft - sorry.

Beautiful set, I always enjoy looking at your photos and I get so much inspiration from them.

5 is my favorite.

8 is classic. Should add it immediately to your portfolio.

Seems like the wedding season is treating you well!

Good job, Nick.

Excellent photos. The last one should be a fan favorite for sure.

Nice set.
I think its her predominate eye brows.
In the dancing shot her eyebrows are more pronounced than his.

Nothing wrong, that's the way it is. I do like the softness of the closeup. Not unsharp softness, rather, special moment softness. :-)
