    Hi holly... congratulations on your 1st wedding.... hope it all went well...did you enjoy it?? (mine was certainly an experience with one VERY late bride!) Not all of the photos opened for me but what i saw looked nice... only thought was that the colour didn't seem to "pop" on my monitor.... kind of reminded me of the family portrait session you took where the colour was a bit flat and i think brittany (aka peanuts) edited it and it all brightened up?? Maybe this would work here?... Havent posted mine yet but probably will later on. Keen to hear how the day went for you! x jemma

    Hey Holly,
    Congrats on the first wedding photography. They can be a little scary. I have to agree with Jemmy on the colors on some of these...#2 in particular seems really flat and sort of dark to me. In #1 and 6, I would have stopped down the aperture so that everyone was more in focus instead of only the front person. The 1st dance shots look nice. I like that you were trying to be creative with the ring picture, but to be honest, this pose of the hands looks pretty vulgar to me! lol
    The flower and cake shots are all nice as well! Good job:)

    Thanks April! The cake and flowers were the easiest they werent moving ;) lol. I seem to do good with NON moving objects... Will certainly have to do this again for sure.. It was fun, but a little scary.. Now I pretty much have an idea as to what Ill be dealing with as far as brides/groom/brides maids and ushers/bestmen...

    Lots of tips I received too so that is great... Next time Ill have to shoot on Auto instead of Manual.. My Auto shots came out better then the ones U see here because I didnt have to keep adjusting my camera.. .. Will be posting more soon :)

    Hey Holly! I think that these have the same problems as those family portrait shots...your coloring still seems very cold. Your whites are very blue which is what gives these photos that cold feeling. They just need to be warmed up and given some color pop, and I think they will look completely different. I would be willing to give it a try again if you would like. I'm the one who edited your family portraits. Just let me know...it would be no problem!

    O I dont mind.. Im beginning to get this feeling that I should NOT do photography for other people... I Just cant seem to get the nack I Guess... These were all done manual so maybe thats why... I Do have some I did in Auto... I think they came out better for me

    Here's one idea I had for an edit. I thought that this photo would love much more powerful in B&W. Just a simple B&W conversion and some sharpening on rings themselves. Also, I added a very slight amount of contrast and cropped it to make it a square crop, it just seemed off with the original crop.
