    Brides are just crawling out of the woodwork here! Love it to death! They are so fun to work with, and EVERY bride I work with has a mind of what "style" she wants her pics to feel like. This bride wanted a vintage look. Her dress was ordered from out of country and got stuck in customs for over a week! BUT, STUNNING!!!

    Please c&c these! I really enjoy the feedback - it helps my learning curve!

    I think these are good. If your going for the vintage "look" I think 1, 7 and 8 capture my eye.

    I'm just wondering though how come your last two threads it's just shots of the bride? :D

    #1 I don't like it, something wrong with her eyes, maybe the bright light I don't know.
    #8 I really like, although it might have been better if she curled her feet up.
    #9 She's cute like an angel haha. A bit bizzare.

    Thanks!

    My last two posts are the bridals! The weddings haven't happened yet! You know the groom isn't allowed to see the wedding dress till the big day . . . something about bad luck! :lol: This vintage bride is getting married Friday, and the bride on my last post is getting married at the end of the month!

    Maybe, just maybe I'll post a few of the grooms then!!!

    I added some texturing to #1. Plus the natural light coming from the window may be overpowering to her face.

    On 8 I did chop her feet . . . ugh!

    Every time I shoot at this little B&B here, we put the brides in the window! Not sure why, maybe just for something different . . . drama maybe! Her's is actually my favorite window shot!

    I can not see any of your photos. How do you have them loaded on this website? I really want to see them!

    I'm not sure what's up. I load them the same way I always have, this is the first time I've had someone mention they can't see the images . . .

    Not sure what's up.

    I do have them on my flickr link at the bottom of the original post. Try that.:D

    You know I've never thought of offering a bridal shoot before. It's good option if the client isn't willing to do a trash the dress session. Some just don't want too look back since it's such a big stress on their shoulders and having a shoot like this has the anticipation fuel behind it. :D

    this has nothing to do with ur photos/talent.. besides her stupid hair ruins it! her hair and make up dont match the dress which in turn shatters a vintage look in any work of art be it photo or otherwise... idk maybe being a theater nerd has me a little too into making sure the 'costuming' is correct down to the bottom button, but i dont like these. like i said its not the actual picture that i dont like, i think its just the subject, she doesnt have a single vintage type quality other than the dress... i need more than that.

    WOW!!! I can count on one hand the number of times I've had a bride NOT want a bridal session. My Bridal Packages include engagement session, bridal session, and wedding day services. They only get $100 knocked off is they don't do a bridal! It's a really big market, for me at least!

    Is it the dress or is it the atmosphere she's trying to create ;)
