I love Texan brides!
Great shots Steve! Focus, color, dof, and comp is all spot on! Very nice soft effect in #1. Wonderful job. Thanks for sharing. :thumbup:
These are great! The only thing that bothers me is in #1, that extra skin and dress showing behind her right arm. I probably would have had her turn her body a little too hide it, as it makes her look heavier. However, since it is there, I think I would remove it in Photoshop. I really love the pose in #2, as it does a great job of slenderizing her upper body. Good work!
Great shots! I love #2
I agree, I did not see it before but I do now. She is not a heavy girl but my pose makes her look that way. I tried a little "liquefy" in photoshop. Before is on the left and after on the right. Did I go far enough?
Whoa! Checked your web site. Strong work for sure. The liquify tool is questionable. You did a great job. Question is how much you want to alter what the camera captured.

Really like the first couple. How did you light her? The others are nice, but the top two really stick out.
Beautiful work! #2 is my favorite. I just wish the heel of the boot wasn't lost amongst the dark background.
All were done with off camera flash using pocket wizards. The first two were shot through an umbrella. Others were just bare flash.
Your liquefy editing helped some. I don't know, if it was me, I would probably wipe out the whole thing all the way to her arm. I understand there are some quasi-moral issues about PP. But the way I look at it, especially with a bride, is that she wants to look fantastic! If a pose makes her look heavier than she is, then by all means tweak the shot to make her look more "realistic". Which is more "real": an unfortunate posing malfunction that makes her look heavier than she is or a post-processing job that reflects what her actual body shape is?
Great Job I can't say I like one over another they all are good.
