... I have finally decided to share

Haven't really shared too much over the past 15 years of being a forum member, so (at the request of another long-standing and well-respected member) here are some of my favorite images:

Feel free to C&C. Always striving to improve. It is so valuable to receive feedback, even as a seasoned full-time wedding photographer from outside eyes who share a passion for the industry.

My particular industry (destination weddings) is both challenging and rewarding. I typically have between 1 and 2 hours *total* with the couple, and they expect images that look like they spent the entire day with me.

Here we go:

Some of these look really great. Wish they would have been posted at least twice as large.

Wonderful variety of styles here all of which I enjoyed viewing.. Thanks for Sharing.
I do have one question/comment: Number 14 looks more like a parting of ways than a joining together… I’d appreciate your thoughts on this one.

Thank you for all the nice comments so far

Regarding that one, sometimes the Bride requests a first look, and this is a shot I often get before the groom turns to see her for the first time in her dress.

Sorry I didn't post them larger, but with so many images I didn't want to overwhelm the system. I may try to gather some more together and I will post them a bit larger

So many great shots. I love the variety and different styles. It's very hard to pick a favorite. #2 made me laugh. I love #4 also. The one thing I did notice about this group of images you chose to share is that there are not many that show faces. I would love to see more of your work. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the nice comments recently (and Happy T-Day).

@ Mar73: I guess I consider the more artistic shots being those from afar or abstract. I certainly focus (pun intended) on their faces for many shots during and after the ceremony.

Aloha from Hawaii

It's a great homage to "From Here to Eternity".

Great set!

These are so good! Lots of really creative stuff. (I think the "HELP" in 2 detracts; I'd already laughed before I'd scrolled down enough to see that, and it seems a bit like using a hammer to drive a thumbtack.)

Mahalo for the nice comments!

@ dmcmillian - Funny you should reference that film, it was shot 5 minutes from my home and right around where I do most of my weddings.

@ story_teller - That could have been the nicest criticism anyone has posted...anywhere! Thanks!

@ Ernie - Agree! I scrolled to that point and liked it a bit better as well... will try that for the next fun couple who doesn't mind getting sandy

19 is my favorite From this beautiful set.

Nit pick- those shot with flash fill on the couple have a mismatched white balance from the golden hour sun. I would have done some localized brushing on the couple to warm them up a little bit more.

Thanks for the nice words gschlscat!

Yes, shooting sunset has always been a challenge for WB... but I think we, here at FM, are most aware of the issue - the client probably wouldn't notice.

Aloha
