These are actually really nice.

The coloring isn't my taste, but I think that comes down to style.

Numbers 9, 10 and 11 don't do anything for me. The framing in 12 is great though.

Love your willingness to not "properly" expose everything. I like dark shots.

Love #1.

I don't like getting other photographers (unless they're guests) in my shots. So watch for that in #2.

Clone out the gap at the bottom of #6.

Watch the backfocusing on #16.

Direct flash in #25 hurts. There's no real way around getting a quick grab like that, and using or not using direct flash is a user preference. But I'm not a fan.

p.1 #3 · First shots from my First wedding as a Second


Thanks, I wasn't sure which of those 4 purse shots I liked the most, as I worked too long on them to have a clear sense of mind. In the end I enjoyed working on 12 the most and provided me with the least amount of PP needed to get something to taste, I should have known that was the one.

#25 was...well yea pitch black I have shots w/o a lot of flash but they aren't silhouetted as much as I would have liked I may just have to drop it.

#2 was..well a super wide in a room of myself, the primary and three videographers, In the end I may actually pull him out in PS. (on guests photographers..I can't wait to get the shots from the ceremony, I had 1 wide I know I can see 4 people using DSLR's with either mounted flashes or just decent gear who are all in the center isle or out in front...none of whom are associated with the actual wedding photography.)

Thank you for the feedback.

Nice job first of all. Some nice creative angles.

I would not have posted 4 purse shots haha.. Also not a big fan of the processing. In fact I would probably just B&W all the ones that has reddish tint on them.

Lastly, While I really like number 2 because of the fisheye, I dislike number 3 for the same reason. Fisheye is great when used sparringly, but in this case it distorted the groom's head and puts the emphasis on the back/butt of the guy tying his shoes.

Nice job catching emotion in some of these shots

Like the lighting on the shoes for #7 but I'm not sure what you meant to get in focus

Tip: When you're photographing something, ask yourself, "Is this important?"

Was the purse important? Were those sunglasses important? The turntables?








For this photo, who is your subject? Is your subject exposed properly so that your attention goes to it? Next time, try using a different lens. If the space is cramped, a 24mm might be useful. The distortion in this photo is really distracting.








Your eyes tend to go towards the brightest spot in the photo. In this photo, that white strip of line on the right is very distracting. Next time, try moving a little to the left to hide things like that.


Hope that helped a little.
