    Valleyview...that's a long way from Calgary.

    I agree with the others, these are excellent shots...well done.

    The only things that stand out for critique are the two group shots with the cart. It's a great idea but one of the girls has her eyes closed. In the guy's shot, one of them is hidden behind a branch and I think I'd prefer to see all their faces looking at the camera.
    Often, shots like these are fun for the bride & groom to look at but they might not be 'favorite' shots of theirs and probably won't get blown up or hung on the wall. But if you manage to get all the little details just right, they can really become great shots and might be favorites and also be great additions to your portfolio. I know that it can often be hard to get these shots perfect because of the limited time we have to shoot during a wedding day. Also, if a shot is worth the effort, you can often fix things like closed eyes or even a bad expression. You probably have dozens of photos of each of the wedding party, just find one that would be a good candidate for donation and copy over the parts you need.

    Thanks guys, and thanks Mike! I agree, perhaps i should take the time to "cut and paste".
    The branch was a problem, then I had them move it (well actually they broke a piece off). I must go back and look at my shots.....
    Thanks!
