    Okay last Saturday I shot my second wedding! Had a lot of fun, I made some mistakes but of course I'm learning from them. I've even tried to kick myself in the butt a few times, but I'm out of shape. So just learning will have to be enough.

    Anyway here are a few shots, I will post more as I get through the PP.
    C&C is much appreciated!

    What's up with the kiss in #8? Did he just put his hand there? Doesn't it seem a little hot and heavy for anyone else?

    I kinda thought that, but heck at least he is really in love! My first wedding was terrible because the bride and groom looked like they didn't want to get married.

    Very nicely done, agree, top-notch detail shots. Not fond of the composition in #7, and the pose in #8? Not much you could do about it, but ehh... does NOT work for me.

    What's wrong with #8?

    Seems to me if people let themselves show some passion on their wedding day you get a lot of grumbling about bad taste. But, I think there should be more of it! Who says when you get married you have to act so chaste?
    I like your shoe shots. I like #6 as well, but something seems wrong with his eye in that one.

    :lmao: Noooo, not at all. I don't for a second think what he was doing was in bad taste, but the way I see it translated by the camera, it looks like he's got his hands around her neck.

    I agree with tirediron. I think that is kind of like touching the hair of a woman, it's a way to add a bit to the passion of the kiss. Not wrong, but it is more than a peck on the lips. didn't translate well though.

    I love love love #2.. throw the dress on a bed. Why didn't I think of that?! I've always taken them in hanging position. I'm going to try that!
    #7 - Not very sharp.
    #5 - Beautiful. Althought I think a little less skin retouch would look more natural.
    #4 - Stunning!

    Wow! Only your second wedding - nice job! :) I love passionate kisses - I always tell my brides and grooms to "kiss with their hands" so they look more involved. Nothing worse than limp hands and arms just hanging their when they kiss! :)

    I think you're off to a great start! I would just be careful of your DOF and composition - some photos are a little crooked or WAY tight, but that's just personal opinion - if you like it, go for it! :)
