    Thought I'd share highlights from a whole series since I rarely see a whole summary of a wedding posted in here. Wedding photography gives me that rush b/c it's a combination of portraiture and photojournalism - I feel really lucky to be somewhat part of it to be honest.

    This is the last job I'm working on and have just few more gigs until the season ends(Yay I get to shoot for fun soon!). So I just wanted to share some of what the bride went through that day and some details as well. :D

    I think you did a great job of showing the emotion in the photos. I felt like I knew them in looking at them and was really happy for them. Great job with that!

    #6, #12 & #16 are my favorites of the set, but they all look great. Good job!

    Thanks and appreciate all the comments :thumbup: .
    Misol - That's the beauty of weddings, it's filled with all these emotions to document. Thanks.

    Dragon - I feel the same way, back then I didn't care and certainly regret it. Thanks for the comments!

    Ocular - Yeah that filter flare on 12 came out decent. The sharpness is just for web which I tend to do. Thanks bud!

    Great shots. The only one that bothers me is number 9 being not lined up properly. You have to be careful with shots that have so much symmetry present that everything is lined up and centered perfectly. Things like that can either be artistic off, which is typically way off, or they can be perfect. But being a little off just always looks like a mistake to me. At least, that's my take on it.

    General Benson do you want a job as a second editor for Simply Dashy Photography? We are a small company that shoots on location portraiture and weddings. LOL

    Great catch on #9 as it looked good in my eyes initially so I didn't run it through a grid. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Looks like a fantastic wedding, I'm sure you got alot of great shots! Heres my input for what its worth..
    1) ok..
    2) Sucks that the ceiling is painted brown...turned the dress beige, assuming you bounced the flash from the shaddow cast on the tub. If you like the warm overtones B&W the dress and brush it back in. Vignette looks unatural too strong.
    3) Too much noise...either over brightened in PP or over sharpened...I'm assuming under exposed over brightened at a higer ISO.
    4) refer to 3
    5) more of same
    6) same

    Of the pictures outside your dealing with some pretty harsh lighing, looks like you might of tried to use flash to compensate when a diffuser would've been more addiquate for the bride/groom pics. Looks like some over sharpening in some of these.

    That is exactly why I love weddings too :hug:: #15 really got me! I just love seeing the day from start to finish. It's always hard for me to choose just an image or two that stands out as my "favorite" because it's more about the journey of the day.
