    Nice shots. I'm not a fan of #5 due to the poll that is coming out of his head and dividing her in half. I think #4 is my favorite.

    I like number 6 the best. Very unique and I think it would look awsome on a wedding announcment.

    These are fun and I like how you've worked in the environment! I'm thinking though that with the saturation you did you inadvertently added in some extra red to their skin tones which I can see mostly in the last two. #4 looks to be on the yellow side.

    Good poses, but all seem over-exposed and/or slightly over-saturated. Looking at them, it appears that they were exposed for the shadows rather than the highlights.

    Yes you are right I do expose for the shadows. I've just started making some money with photography and I have to say I get a little nervous about not having the subject exposed. So I expose for that. But I just did some research on exposing for the highlights and I am going to experiment with that. So thank you for the observation.

    Yes number 4 is yellowish, I did notice that but I thought it looked ok, but I'm going to see if I can get the yellow out before I give the CD to the client. I don't really see the red in the skin tones but I will double check them also. I'll just bring the red levels down a tad. Thanks.


    Thank you to everyone for the comments!

    Yes from the waist down, and I had to drive 2 hours home wet. The family was very nice though and let me use a towel to dry off! But I don't mind the water, I'm the type of person who prefers not to use an umbrella when it rains. Unless it is a big down pour, then I run for cover!

    When you're doing this sort of work (that is: The kind where you can't go back and get a 'do-over') I'd suggest bracketing each shot 1/3 or 1/2 stop each side. You'll chew through a little more memory, but you'll have a lot more to work with.

    on pic 4 i would of liked to see some tight cropping through the lens.

    you had allready shot them there, so zoom in and take a few shots.

    it would of taken a few seconds to pose them.

    maybe crop in from her hands up. have his head against hers tilted looking at the camera, his right hand is just hanging there just have him open his palm and place it on the side of her shoulder.
