I have been lurking for a few months, and have decided to jump in with a few shots from my first wedding Oct. 20th. I had loads of fun, and realized I have much to learn as I go. C/C welcome.

I'll go Bruce. Observations. What is in each image and is it adding or subtracting from the image. Get your flash off your camera. If you do use it on camera, try bouncing, ceiling windows, white shirts. Hard shadows are pretty distracting. Leaves with girls is cute, could be cuter with improved positioning and posing. Im not a fan of the cover the crotch, thumbs in pockets, is my preference. Love the color is dresses in that image, a couple of the other images are over. In formats, it's about the bride. Why is she so far away? If you do it for drama or impact, it can be effective. In this image, bring her down the stairs and make the couple the focal point. Open your aperture to hi lite subject and remove distractions in bg. Exposure is ok but posing composition could all be improved.
Don't take it too hard, it's your first and study up and be more prepared next time. You have some cute expressions that the bride should love. There is a same-ness to the images, not constituent yet, but you will improve I do see hope and potential in your images. Brave of you to post. Welcome! And the best to you. -tom

Welcome! My advice would be that if you are going to go with a deep depth of field like you did here, make sure your background is clean, or make sure you want the background details to be as prominent as you have them here. Shooting wide open isn't a cure'all, but being conscious of your composition and background elements when deciding an aperture can go a long way to making your shots stand out from the standard snap shot.

Thanks Tom & Steve. I've made mental notes for my next opportunity. I normally shoot birds mainly for the meditation time alone in the field. This change of pace was fun.

Beware of the deadly soccor penalty kick pose. Get those hands down by their sides, not in front of the nads.
