    Please give me comments and critiques. These shots are from my first paid wedding and I have to give her the pictures by next weekend. I am a little nervous about my product. I would really appreciate some feedback before I give them to her to make sure I give her value for her money. Please see the link below.

    Many of the images are done quite well. Some of the flash shots are a bit harsh in their impact upon the skin. They are a little washed out in comparison to others.

    I am sure that this bride will be satisfied with the work as long as the rest of them are as good as the ones you have up here for us to see. Some are a little on the bright side, but most of them are perfectly fine.

    You should most definitely stop doing free photo sessions if the outcome of your sessions is as good as what I have just seen in your simplealbums-account! Charge them!

    They are great. If I were you I would not do free shoots anymore. You are way to good for that.

    I like the crisp colors. I think she will be thrilled. Do not give her any hint that you are nervous. Walk in with complete confidence because you should!

    I think they look good. Are you using a vid light?

    Thanks guys! I've got a meeting with another potential client and this time I'm going to charge. A lot of my clients are people that are refered by people that I have done free weddings for and so I always end up doing shoots for free or next to nothing. Any tips on how to start introducing pricing? I have it on my website, and refer people to it but they just ignore it and start bargaining. They always say you did it for free for so and so can't you give us a deal. It's like a never ending cycle!

    BTW - Cindy, didn't use a vid light, most of the light in the shots are post processing. In hindsight, I might use less lighting in post processing next time!
