    I'm just a semi-pro getting started in the photo industry. I LOVE LOVE LOVE photography but I know I have a lot to learn. Here are a few from a recent wedding. Some feedback would be very much appreciated.

    I edited multiple versions of the first two but I liked the silhouetted ones best. For the hands I would have much rather been eye level but the way the bridge was I couldnt achieve it.

    Another take on the first shot with the bride as more of the focus...

    I would have liked to have her facing the other way or with the lead room in front of her instead of behind but there was a golf cart to the left and this was actually candid while she was waiting for the groom. I kind of like it though... Sometimes I'm a fan of the awkward dead space. Haha.

    You can't see anyone in any of the photos... That's probably not good for wedding photos.

    I obviously took more than 3 photos at the wedding....
    These just ended up being some of my favorites.

    I thought you were looking for feedback? Maybe show us something that shows a face or an emotion or something?

    In my opinion the three you just posted are much better. The first picture up top could work for me if you maybe composed it more like a panoramic, cutting a lot of the top and a little of the bottom out.

    The second ones are definitely much more appealing as wedding photos. I really like teh bride goorm glasses with them kissing behind them.

    boo. i like the first ones. while pictures of peoples faces and emotions are important, a few dramatic art prints add to a collection. I've built a business on non traditional wedding photos. the couples love them. it;s the reason they hired us. so if the couple saw a portfolio with pictures of a similar style, there's no reason to say that they are mediocre wedding shots, cause they're not. they're just not what you would want for your wedding. That's fine, you didn't hire the guy, that couple did and they probably love it.

    Yaaaay thank you thank you!! I mean sure you need some of those sort of stuffy posed pictures of smiling faces for the fam.... but I have the real fun when we get to the creative, unique shots. Glad to see one person on my side :)
