    I had the opportunity to shoot a beautiful bride at a local campus yesterday. Wonderful venue, I could have spent all day shooting there but the poor girl wilted in the hot sun with that big dress. We got a few before we had to retreat to the air conditioning.

    You did a great job with a really beautiful "model" here and I find her eyes particularly stunning in the last, the b+w version. What was your light for that one?

    I tried that pose with and without flash. The posted picture was a combination of natural light, dodge and burn.;)

    The first and last are abosulte stand-outs! Did you consider doing anything with the background in that last one?

    VERY nice work!

    My first instinct was to change the background to all black but I thought I would loose the contrast with her hair. Maybe I'll give it a try tonight.:)

    They are all beautiful, but the first one is captavating. I love her eyes and the treatment you gave the photo. Really beautiful.

    very nice, i love them. first, second, and last are my faves though (mostly the first two, because I'm a texan :) ).

    these seem really familiar, especially the second one. maybe i've seen your work somewhere before...hmm.

    i would have liked the first one but her head looks distorted. it looks like you were using a wide lense.
