    2. The sky appears blown, but it was actually a yucky weather day, just kinda dreary and blah

    3. Was able to get some cloud action going on here though!

    again, I am always asking for opinions, and critique!
    oh, btw, I worked REALLY hard at not blowing out the dress, that's always my hardest thing in weddings, how'd I do?

    I really like #2 - very cute! And I think you did a great job not blowing out the dress - that can be hard. At least it was cloudy :-o

    The only nit pick I have is that #1 seems cropped a bit too close for my tastes - but that can be just personal preference :) Overall wonderful job!

    The first two are pretty good, although I have a feeling that #2 could be cropped to make it better.
    I think the outdoor / umbrella shots could be cropped a lot closer (or taken closer).
    5 & 7 are great.
    #6 feels like a snapshot. I get the significance of the two daughters but surely you have a better shot of the three of them?
    #8 just isn't flattering to the bride, I can envision her seeing it and cringing.

    I do have closer and even closer ones of the umbrella shots, but I just loved the feel of #3 especially! Kinda fantasyish I guess!
    And #6 is a snapshot, I was doing photos of the mom and the older girl, and the younger one just kinda plopped herself down and grabbed mom's flowers. So, yeah I just snapped it quickly! I do have shots of the three of them together that are more posed and what-not.

    You're not the only one that doesn't love #8, it might end up being one of those photos she might not see:lol:

    Thanks though, for the critique, it really does help me to see from a perspective other than my own!

    Thanks butterfly girl, I actually have this pose a little less tight, I'll have to put the two together and see if I like the one over the other!

    4 would be a lot better if you could take out the sidewalk line. If my eyes weren't drawn to that line it would be a much better picture. #7 would look a little better if the flowers were up closer to her eyes. I think you did a great job on these.

    YUP! Born and raised! These were shot at the Bountiful, Utah Temple. While I was waiting for the bride and groom, I was able to grab these:

    Bountiful Temple is one of my favorite Utah Temples. Feel free to critique these, with the gentle reminder that I'm not an architectural photographer!:D

    On your wedding photos I would pull the red out of his face and warm them up, you will have some winners for sure.

    Stop in my studio and say hi anytime.... It's in Bountiful!
