Things fianlly slowed down enough that I'm able to post some pictures from a wedding from a couple of weeks ago.

1. I was warned that the groom was very likely to get emotional when he saw his bride!

2. Getting himself back under control.

3. The reception was scheduled to be held very near the swimming pool at a local hotel. When the MOB got there, she discovered that the A/C was not working, the temperature as approaching 95 and so was the humidity. The hotel had to scramble to move the reception to the only room that was available. So, the B&G weren't allowed into the hotel for almost 2 hours. They were so cool about it. She turns to me and asks if we can use some of this time to make some more photographs. Way cool bride!! Here's one while they were sharing a more intimate moment.

4. Another from the same setting. I couldn't get any better angle on this. To camera right was huge, ugly hotel door and to camera left, the end of the building and the hotel parking lot. Oh, well - you do the best you can with what you have.

5. Another made while we were waiting for permission to enter the hotel.

6. She was waiting for all the hub-bub to quiet down. I wanted to get a nice photo of her, but every time I lowered myself to the floor and pointed the camera at her, she would look at the camera and ham it up. So, I ignored her for a moment. Then, I set the center focus point active, lowered the camera to the floor, made a guess for aiming the camera and fired one off. Chimp - nope, not quite right. Correct and fire again and I go this.

7. From the reception, the first dance.

8. Bride's reaction to a toast from her mother. Groom was right there to comfort her.

You've captured some great emotions and great moments. A few comments:
1 & 2) Nice captures of emotion
3) I'd use less midnight sepia, blend the effect down with layer opacity over the original image. I don't like her eyes, I think you just missed the moment, but it's still a good shot.
4) Landscape crop? Something about the lighting just doesn't do it for me.
5) Need more contrast and a little overexposed? Seems a little flat.
6) Nice. Vignette?
7) Great capture, off camera lighting would've made this a killer shot.
8) Nice, again lighting could be better.

This seems like such a loving couple, you can literally feel the closeness. Awesome!

My favorite would be the dance shot

Tim,

You're right in all your critic - thanks. I'll re-work #3 and #5 a bit though there's nothing I can do about the eyes in #3 :D

I'm still working my way up to off-camera lighting. That's something I plan to work over the course of the next month or two.

Thanks for your input - really appreciate it.

Song - Thanks. It's my favorite as well.

my fav is shot 3, but id just lighten up the grooms face a bit and yeah, tone down the color a bit.
shot 5: id rather have the groom with his back on the wall looking at you. that pose looks like it was posed and he looks uncomfortable.
