    Nice. #5 really grabs me. I think you left just a little too much neck in #2. It sort of leads me out of the photo, and suggests decapitation. Crop the top just a smidge lower.

    I agree with Matt about #2. Also #5 is a stand out one. I love how you can see her pretty blues in the 1st one. Unfortunately, the lighting seems a bit dim for #4 and her expression and body language don't scream "I'm happy that I'm getting married." lol

    #5 is my favorite as well. I too agree with Matt on the cropping of the 2nd one. It's something I struggle with as well. I love the look of the flowers, dress and necklace but I have a hard time knowing where to crop the neck.
    #1 has a great natural smile. I think she will be very happy with these!

    Gotta love the first and last one! I really don't know how to feel about the third. It's not clear what I should be looking at.

    OK... hands... Try having your birdes hold the bouquette in one hand, down a bit lower, and more toward the hip so that it does not hide the waistline. I think you're gonna like it.

    What a beautiful series!
    #5 is a stand out, but I also really like the pov in #3.

    Great work, they'll be thrilled!

    (I'm not so sure about the decapitation one either! Maybe crop down more to make it more deliberate looking?)

    I'm so glad you guys liked #5. It was my favorite, but I didn't know how it would go over since it doesn't scream "Bridal". :lmao:
    I'm having a hard time with the decapitation shot. I've been playing with it, but might have to ditch it all together because I can't seem to get the right crop. I've seen it done with success, but it's eluding me! :mrgreen: I'll keep trying.
    Thanks you guys for all the kind words and advice!!!!!

    Great series, Cindy - as usual your subject looks so relaxed with you. :thumbup: About the crop, try cropping just to where those pearls will disappear. Leaving them in the frame draws attention from the bouquet. I think you had a good idea there, so it would be a shame to ditch the shot! :)
