I'm lovin the first one, but why are her shoes off?
Not fair. She's too pretty. With a subject that pretty how can you go wrong. LOL just kidding. These are beautiful and I know she loves the crap out of them!
#1 is my favorite, 2 is a bit too edited for me (or seems that way).
but why are her shoes off? ... so she doesnt fall in i guess?!! x
Beautiful rich tones in #1. I agree with the edit in #2 - she looks a bit TOO perfect x and Im not sure about the hair over the top too? x
#3 is cute too. x
Jemmy! How the heck are ya! I'm loving your work. You are getting crazy good.
She wanted vavavoom gorgeous, and she IS pretty!
This can be a slippery slope. Here in Texas a lot of brides are stuck on Bridal Magazine ads, and they want to be perfect. Just like the ads they see in the mags. If you can do this, they will pay you well.
On the off side, here is a true story. I had a very big lady as a bride. Not fat, but just large, tall, big shouldered, a big boned lady. No problem there, but the photos she kept saying she wanted to look like were these tiny waisted girls.
Thus my "Extreme Retouching" was born.
She had a wide but pretty face, with extreme acne, and flat hair. I fixed the skin, and made the hair full.
I took about 40 lbs off of her as well. I was hoping I hadn't offended her by going to far.
I get this call: "Oh my God, no one has ever taken pictures as good as this of me", and proceeded to order every photo in a variety of sizes.
Needless to say, these photos looked nothing like her anymore, but most women has a "hopeful" visual of themselves.
How many ladies here has seen a photo of themselves and said, "Dang, I didn't know that my hair/stomach/butt/whatever looks like that!!!!!!"
So here is the kinda sad part. While the reception was going on, I walked outside to get some air, and found these barbie girls totally ripping on the bride. "Damn this photo is beautiful but it looks nothing like HER!" I wanted to slap them. If only for the fact that the beautiful bride had spent her hard earned money as a physician to invite these two faced biaches.
But yeah, it didn't look like her. But it DID look like how she pictured herself on her wedding day...........her most radiant and beautiful ever.
And that is the point. I do what my client wants. In response, they send me everyone they know.
well, I don't blame you for listening to your clients, but man, women like that really need a reality check if a photog takes 40 lbs of and they think it's still them!
It's like giving me a full head of hair..
but these pics look very pretty. I like #1 and the bare feet are a playfull touch! :thumbup: The only nitpick: the ground in #3 is really black.
Hey, want to do some seniors up in Canada?
Your work is stunning - especially the first. One could see that splashed up as an ad in some major city's centre. Thank you for sharing - looking forward to seeing more!
Super work. I like them all.
Good stuff, I like them.
