    I had the chance to go to my boyfriends brother's wedding and saw it as an opportunity to practice taking some pictures. They had a paid photographer at the wedding but I asked if it was all right for me to take photos as well and they were more then happy and I also asked the photographer if he would mind and he said not at all so that was really nice!

    I like how a lot of them came out and the family loves them and is very happy I was there to take some extra pictures. Don't worry I didn't get paid or anything it was all just for fun and practice!

    I hate shading it out that much but i'm a short person and there were random hands in the frame and they were kind of annoying so I just shaded them out...:confused:

    Since you're in the leaning mode, have a look at this guys site. A new TPF member. I don't shoot weddings, but much can be learned from his images IMO.

    The PP in #4 is not too good IMO, in fact it's pretty bad if presented to the B&G.

    Random stuff getting in your frame is better salvaged with cropping rather than intense vignetting. The vignetting in those is too drab and washes out the colours.

    +1 on the PP job for #4. You really need to get in closer with your tools; spend lots of time and get it right. Or, learn how to light such a shot so that you get the white background in-camera.

    Out of them all, I would have to go with #5 it's the best of the lost for me. I ruined a lot of what could have been good photo's by vignetting to death. I agree with MusicaleCA crop don't vignette makes the colors seem really drab...but Im new to, just my thoughts

    #5 is also the best out of this series. However all of them lack a lot of umph to be considered good shots.

    Thanks for sharing though, you'll only get better.

    I agree with Andrew Sun, the fifth one looks to be one of the best there. I also like the third one.
