    This is my sister at her wedding a few weeks ago ... I was her maid of honour so there was limited opportunity for taking pictures of myself but I did manage to get a few.

    This is one of the first few that I've had a chance to get to work on.

    I'd love to hear your professional opinions and critiques.

    Thanks for looking :mrgreen:

    You've got a really good eye for capturing the special moments at a wedding. These are great! I hope you get the opportunity to shoot more weddings!

    I LOVE the shots of "the boys" and the flower girl kissing the bride. It's hard to do this sort of work when you're "wearing two hats."

    I think all your shots would stand up agaist many of the "professionals" in my area. Keep doing more of the same.

    Wow, Errant Star! Those are awesome. I think the first one is pure class and I love the memories you have managed to capture in the rest. Well done!

    No ... I was the maid of honour in the wedding so what I managed to get was very limited ... mostly I just went around and took pictures of things giong on while she (the pro photog) was taking her posed pictures that I wasn't in :wink:

    I think you did a great job on those. I think that a family member or a friend get some of the best shots, especially if they have some actual photography knowledge and aren't running around with the little disposables :lol:

    ****s sake, Jen! I'm going to confiscate your camera soon so I can catch up. You've moved forward with your abilities so fast it's hard to believe. Except I've seen it with my own eyes. You're one of those people who are very natural with the camera, it shows. You know the exact time to press the shutter just as much as you know how to compose a photograph.

    I'm wondering if you should start selling some of your work or maybe offer yourself up to get paid to shoot. I'm thinking some of your shots on your site would look stunning on a wall in big print.
