    Hey everyone I have been looking at incorporating my fashion style of shooting into weddings. People laughed at my on another forum for my idea :( . I think the pictures came out great for the minimal time I had to shoot (other photographers were hogging the couple). Let me know what you guys think.

    Overall, I think they're very good. 1 & 2 have the subjects a bit overexposed to me.

    4 & 5 are great.

    I don't like the tree coming out of the kid's head in #3.

    Your avatar pic is like you're either proudly gay or trying to pick up women here. Go for something a little more classy. (or at least don't use flash for it, hehehe)

    ^+1. I also dislike the shadow that is on the brides face in #1. Possibly from the ambient light and not your strobes? Overall, I really like the look though. Maybe just tame the light just slightly but they definately look great.

    Good shots. #1 definitely has an issue with the shadow on her face...

    i think 1 and 2 the flash could be pulled back a stop or so... doesn't look too balanced to me... also the shadow sides of them end up being a bit too contrasty for this type of photo bc of that...

    the shadow is from the groom's face blocking the flash from the left...

    all in all i think it's not bad for your first wedding... i mean crap you've gotta be a little nervous and esp when u don't have much time and theres ppl around who want to get their shots as well!

    I know right, you didn't start a thread with 200 people responding, including me saying you must have a backup. :)

    But seriously though, if you really want to hit portrait lighting well, check out these two sites, oldies but goodies
