Very nice. I would WB the last pic. I like the ring picture, but, I recommend you crop in tighter to, at least, remove the dull expression on the brides face.

Other than that, well done on your first wedding.

Yeah.. I was kinda disappointed that I didn't catch her with better expression.. I was thinking blurring her out.. and see maybe I could save it.. - Thanks.

I really like b&w wedding photography but these appear over exposed to a degree.

Since the subject is the ring, it should take up more of the picture than it does. Blurring her more, still leaves more area for the eyes of the viewer to wonder. Cropping, using the thirds rule, would bring the subject closer and help the view focus their attention more on the ring and still be a very interesting picture.

Not a fan of the B&W conversion but your compositions are amazing. Good looking couple - the bride's a real beauty. Great job!

i think the cropped photo looks really good, her facial expression took away from the actual focus of the photo. for your first wedding i think this was a good start. keep going & improving!
