I tagged along with amazing photographer, and old high school friend, Katie Beverely (external link) for my first wedding a couple of weeks ago. I know these aren't amazing, but I think they turned out alright for my first time and I'd like to get some feedback from ya'll! It was a bit of a challenge since I wasn't the one posing, so most of the pics they aren't looking at me, but I think I made it work. You can view the rest of the best on my blog (external link). So yeah, please feel free to comment and critique these babies!

I really like the composition in #2, it has a very classy feel to it, really ties it together. Well done!

Nice work for your first time, Chrissy. Weddings are hard to shoot anyways, I think...too many contrasts and too many people, LOL!


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

I totally agree.
I really like #3. 10 out of 10 for not stepping to the left to make it symetrical.
Very well done!

Thank you, CanonWong! I used my Tamron 17-50mm on that one at 17mm. I switched between that and my 50mm for the ceremony. :)

Thanks, Maureen! It was definitely a challenge, but I really loved it! It felt amazing to be able to be a part of such a happy thing, even though I didn't know the couple. I just can't wait to get out and do another! :)

Can't say that I've ever peeked in here before, but I definitely like #3, Chrissy. Great perspective and good first effort all around.

These are all great (are you sure it was your first wedding? ;-)a ) I particularly like the first three. Very cool.
