I'm doing this young ladies wedding next weekend and these are a few from her bridal portrait session last evening. We had a blast. Comments appreciated.

Imsges look good, but i have w few nitpicks

1 looks a bit orange to me, but thats an easy fix if you want it to change.

2 looks a little flash heavy for me. Depending on how dark it was, you may have had no other choice, but i would have preferred to see it done a little earlier in the day (not too much mind you) just to get the ambient a little brighter.

3 to me is the weaker image. She looks fairly uncomfortable from looking at her arms, and with her chin tucked down it gives her an unflattering neck. If she craned her neck a little and looked bove the camera or something i think it would be a stronger image

4 good job, i think this was executed exactly how you planned it.

Again, i am nitpicking and giving my ideas, your vision may be different.

Bryan, Thanks for the feedback. I'm sending #1 out tonight for a 20"x30" to display at the reception. I ran it through one of the PhotoTools effects and it may be a bit much. I'll try to tone that back a bit and see how it looks. I appreciate your comments.

Edit: Not sure where that orange cast came from on #1. Opened the .psd and it looked ok. I swapped out the first image with a new export.

Yes, much better. I think that is the strongest of the set, good choice to get it printed big. I think she will love it.

I love 1, 3, and 4. Flashing outside like on #2 is not my style, but it was well done and you did a great job there.

Nice series -- I like the last one the best, but it looks a little crooked to me? Easy fix if it is.

Love them all. She looks like she's standing a little slouchy in #2 though. I also think her hair is too thin to spread out on #3. How did you manage the camera angle on that one? A lovely set that I'm sure she'll delight in.

Thanks! on #3 I'm just off the bottom of the frame standing on a small step stool.
