    Well here are a few shots from my first wedding. It was a very stressful but fun time. I really enjoyed working with the bride a groom; they were great. It was a bit overwhelming at times but overall I think all turned out well. Although I enjoyed it I am really going to try and spend more time with my little ones at home. Kudos to you who do weddings all the time, it’s exhausting! I thought I was going to pass out at times on a hot July day but thanks to my sister’s helpful hand I was okay. Critique always welcome, thanks for viewing.

    I like the rings one. It's a nice twist the the old, boring hand over hand shot showing the rings....

    They look great to me!

    One little idea would be to zoom in closer on the selective coloring shot and fine tune the edges (especially the bottom) of the flowers. Some of the coloring is only partially done.

    these are great. i love the one of the back of their heads and the ring shot is great. on the last one i find the side walk a little distracting, but overall, fantastic work!

    For a first wedding, I'd say you did a remarkable job! These turned out really nicely. You could probably fetch a pretty good fee if you continued w/ it.

    I'd say do a few more weddings, see if you get used to it. If not, you can always stop, but you did so good. You have an eye and I love these. Fantastic job for a first wedding!

    Thanks everyone. I certainly do enjoy photography but I am totally self taught and that intimidates me to have people second guessing me. I know how to take a good picture but if you ask me about different lenses or certain terminology I am clueless. I do love the excitement of it. I am hopefully going to get into some classes and expand my horizons eventually to give me a broader base. Thanks again for viewing.
