a few quick selects from a wedding this past weekend. More and larger images can be seen on my Flickr photostream (external link).

I would've liked some more eye contact, but overall it's a nice and diverse set. I like the last 2 most, I'm not really a fan of the worn out photo effect in #4.

Nice set. I would love to see the shot with the puddle taken a little farther back to get a little more of their reflections in the picture.

I don't mind some eye contact but I generally prefer my subjects look less camera aware... there were plenty of photos with them looking into the camera as well, just not in this group of shots I posted (which does admittedly show lots of non-eye contact type of shots).

You and me both... I had a number of distracting objects including a dumpster, an goofy car on the other side that prevented me from pulling as far back as I wanted. I was kinda bummed so I took a few shots and then quickly moved on...

I really like the colour, composition, and feel of this image - very special.

Love #3 and 5. #1 is very nice as well. I'm not a fan of tilting so #2 makes me a bit dizzy to look at it.

It's funny when I first saw this specific frame I didn't like it, I thought it was a bit too wide and her dress was a bit too large visually in the frame, but after looking at it a bit more and after editing I like it quite a bit more.

I think tiliting can be great for helping give a different look, it should be noted that I'll deliver the client about 500 images, and only probably about 10-20% would have some kind of noticable visual tilting., but but there are 'weird tilts' that are just a bit too much of a tilt (and this borders on that for me).

Thanks for the comments..

Great work. Although #2 does not flatter the subject, IMHO, the rest of the shots are great with variety of mood and energy. Keep in mind, I know nothing about wedding photography, though :).

Great! I saw the first image and before I even read the sign I had to look at you info. Columbus! If you dont mind sharing, where are the others taken? The Short North was obvious. Did you guys shoot anything at night?

They already do... I download my images (in this case I shot 65GB worth of RAW images, yikes! of course this was a 14 hour wedding) and quickly pick some selects in lightroom and tweak a few things and then put it on a slideshow so people can see the images that were created just a few hours ago... the couple and there friends were quite happy and guests snapped up quite a few business cards.

Actually three of those photos were taken in the Short North and were taken within 30 yards of each other, and two other photos were taken just a few hundred yards from the other three.. in fact only one photograph was not taken in the Short North or surrounding area (hint it's the one with the Roses in the background). If you go to Flickr and look on my photostream you will see that each of the photos is geotagged and placed on a map for their exact location.

That said if you don't know where these were taken you might want to spend some time downtown and familiarize yourself with the area as most of these locations are actually quite familar (even with the shallow DoF) to most folks who have spent time in the area. It's good to spend time location scouting and mentally setting up shots so when you have a subject you know where you want to go and what you want to do when you get there.

As for did I take any photographs at night? Not outside... usually by that time us wedding photographers are in capturing the reception. But I've shot quite a bit with people outside a night (enough so in the short north that I find the area kind of boring), I shoot a mix of available light by raising the ISO and using fast glass (think L primes) and using off-camera lighting with my assistant functioning as a light stand.

Finally if your in Columbus you might want to check out Flickr Meet Columbus (external link), a group of Central Ohio photographers who interact online as well as have in person meet-ups and social outings.

I recognized the short north. The 2nd B&W looked like an alley that I frequent. Her leaning looks like the Pin Structure on Nationwide. I myself have found Downtown to be boring. I've shot so much there, that I started heading north. (Dublin, Westerville) German Village is still good. I know exactly what your saying in scouting. Whenever I meet with someone to shoot, I try to visualize the persons look and personality in certain locations. I know enough of the city, that I can pin point the area of where your phone number goes back to. One of my Vendors is right down the street. (Ohio Auto Kolor)

I guess my question of night shooting was a little vague. Did you shoot an engagement session for this couple? And if so, do you have any night shots of it? (I Left a lot out I see)

Do you have to be a member on Flickr to join the group?

... Your comment seemed to indicate you only knew where the image with the 'short north' in the frame was taken, hence my comment. I think if someone knows the downtown area then the locations I shot in were all pretty obvious is what I was saying.

I'm not sure what the 'pin structure' is, but the one shot with her leaning on the large block structure is the Union Station Arch (all that's left of that fantastic train station that they torn down in the middle of the night) at the north end of North Bank Park on Nationwide.

I don't find downtown to be visually boring and I'm okay at making most any location work... just that since I have been living downtown for 12 years the places aren't 'new'.

Here is one more photograph of the bride at the Union Station Arch...

I did not do an engagement session with the couple, I was at the top end of their budget and they needed more time on the day of the wedding so I let them convert the engagement session toward hours on the day of the wedding.

I don't do engagement portraits at night... It's fun for maybe some edgier stuff with off camera lighting or to have a 'couple' night shots but overall I think they are a bust for engagement photos. I usually do my engagement sessions between 90-120 minutes before sunset, so I get a variety of light including the twilight after sunset when there is still some color in the sky. Here is a night photo in the short north I captured last week when out with a friend helping her out with a photography class she was taking a local college:

Yes but it's free... I also happen to think that Flickr is probably the best web photo web site going. I love being able to watch other's work and interact with them as well as meet up with other's locally. It's also amazing the amount of money I've made through Flickr in the past five years, a number of brides and a good bit of license revenue from commercial clients. Although in the past year or so I've been less active online because I don't have the time (ironically my photography takes up most of my time which results in me having less time to interact online about photography).
