i like them all except the 3rd one only because she seems strained due to the sun. great job nonetheless.

I actually do like the effect the sun gave the 3rd pic. But I'm not a fan of the PP blurring in others.

Thanks for the input. Do you mean 4 and 5 or just 4? I think I got heavy-handed on the burning and the glow.

I like 2, 5, and 6 alot! 1 seems to be off on WB for me. A little cool, unless it's my monitor.

I thought the same. And the heavy blurring in pp doesn't work for me.

Thanks guys. I'll make #1 a little warmer and try easing off the blurring on #4.

These are ok pictures, and the couple should be pleased with these if their expectations were modest.

If I had to nitpic, well...

last one feels very squished. Did you use a super wide lens?
in 4, it's a fun pic, but I'd have asked him to turn slightly to catch her expression because all we see is her rear end.

Ya, it was 24mm on the 5d so there's definitely some distortion because we did it in a small hallway. We were shooting near the beach but the evening was way too windy to be outside. As for 4, you're absolutely right. There are a couple more shots in that sequence that you are not seeing where she's piggybacked, so makes sense that it seems out of place. Also, to think about that pic, it's probably not a good one for the couple. I was a little hesitant to do full body pics in the beginning because she's 4" taller than the groom.
