In my opinion you have achieved nothing. Take heart though. Next time at least throw in a bouquette and get a decent close-up, three quarter length and a full shot of your bride.

I totally disagree. It is impossible to achieve nothing. Whatever the outcome of a shoot, you always learn and gain experience.

Your pics need some work. The advice of Kamra is good. I would work on boosting your PP. Your images are quite flat and underexposed.

Also work on lighting the faces. The colour of the bouquet in pic 2 is spilling on to the face.
Pic 3 and 4 are good. Pic 4 could have been bettered by moving down the bridge so that you have the fence on both sides. This would prevent us seeing the end of the bride.

the 1st pic is a bit underexposed... work on your compositions a bit...
Keep it up and you can just improve...


Capture those perfect moments...

i totally agree with this. I have been helping with a couple weddings ( just as a second.. or even third shooter. and while technically some of them were good.. they werent engaging enough.

so keep going.

i like 3 the best anyway.. i think its fun, i like the edit on it. i have actually been reading bridal magazines, and looking at the wedding pictures on here.

im still learning, and trying to get there too.

have a good one.

Right here on the bridge you almost have it. Imagaine the bride looking at you with that smile she has on the first underexposed photo you posted that has her smiling. The body is angled as it should be so all you had to do is, with a motion of hand, say turn your face towards me and when you think the look is right say right there and snap! Now you've got what I call the meat and potatoes shot. Again, while she's still in this pose you can tweak it a little. Turn her head a little more, have her lower the bouquette to her side but visible to the camera. Tilt the head, lower the chin, smile, just play with it. I would also be careful not to have my subject looking right into the edge of your photo. to give the photo some perception you could show a little of what she's seeing like the water. Otherwise having her right in the center of this same composition would be nice. I got it wrong, by the way. You did achieve something. The first photo above shows great expression. This is a nice candid. I'm sorry for being so harsh.
