This was my first wedding using my new 6D and I have to say I'm very happy with it's performance. I shot a lot of the ceremony and indoor prep shots at 3200 ISO with no flash and there is no noise to clean up! This wedding was held in an old barn at a tree farm, here are a few shots:

1. Nice but would benefit from a slightly tighter crop to remove the bit of building creeping into the right hand side of the frame.

2. I like, she looks very sad though.

3. Looks like a guests shot taken from the left hand side of whoever was really taking the shot, Lighting is not good and, you have someone's elbow on the right hand side of the frame and you have people stood/squatted in front of the bride and groom which is generally a bad idea. Lots of lean due to where you took it from and if you straighten it the people will be leaning.

4. OK shot but the background is very distracting with the white line coming out of the grooms forehead.

Got to agree with the above. But it's all a learning curve and your improve next time

Why aren't people looking at you in the third shot?

All of these shots, except the black and white, are straight out of the camera, they haven't been straightened, color corrected or anything else. The black and white just had some blemish clean up and converted, no other corrections. I clicked on the wrong link to post the 3rd shot, it should have been this one:

IMAGE: http://wildharephoto.smugmug.com/Weddings/Tom-and-Cristin/i-VX2ZX6N/0/L/Aguilar_01390-L.jpg

My partner was shooting from a different angle with a shorter lens to give a different perspective and they were looking at him in the 3rd shot.

Seems a bit strange to post one that has been PP'd and others that haven't.

3 still looks like you were stood to the side, almost like, "right everyone look at me now" after the other photographer had taken theirs.

It was his first time out with a new camera, not his first wedding.

I don't think it's terrible if she looks sad. Maybe she was sad, maybe she was thinking about the rest of the day, maybe she was wondering "When that annoying kid is going to stop messing around with her curtains". I think it's important to shoot the reality of the event itself. If it's an arranged marriage and she's not too thrilled, you can try and get her to loosen up and smile here and there but not very much else you can do. You're there to get the best photos you can possibly take.

What I would do though in future is avoid cutting her off at her neck (goes for limbs too). Meaning give her some shoulders or a torso if shooting from above or something. Once you've got your composition down, then even taking away from a head. Meaning just lips with a bit of jawline, possibly eyes with a bit of cheekbone etc... Otherwise you just have a head and I (personally) think you're taking away too much from a person (pun intended).

All the above rolled into one line, unless there's a very specificly composed photo you want to take avoid cutting of at joints. In between joints generally works better.

I was very happy with it, my biggest concern was focusing in low light but it did great. I used it in ai servo and sing shot and was very happy with it.
