    Nice shots! I like the bride and groom with the reflection, and the low-angle shot of her with her veil is lovely. Good work.

    Over all Great Job.
    Few points:
    *Try not to blow the highlights out unless you like that - image 1 - looking into the white, personally, I'd like to see where/what is she looking at.
    *you got the details of the dress - great many ppl don't realize how important it is to get that (bride is paying LOTs of $ for the dress and should see the details.
    *using flash? - its a questionable matter for some and no brainer for others. Even when flash won't add any light, I use it just to get catch lights. I love seeing catch lights, it adds a bit of spark to the image thus 99% of the time I'm using my flash.

    Some images from your link - you blew the dress out :spank:
    http://www.dz-foto.lt/galerija/vestuves/janina-arvydas/janina_arvydas_dz-foto_34.jpg - If it was a girl or a boy staring at the young couple, then its a cute capture but as is - just waste of film (yes I'm a freak and continuously thinking of film - in film the way I was taught it THINK Before shooting - thus you won't loose any frames b/c lost frame = waste of $).

    For someone who claims not being a pro, you captured stuff pretty well.
    Keep up the great job!

    Thanks!

    Personally I use flash very rare. I mean 2-5% of my photos are done with flash.
    About blowing the highlights out..oh.. Thats a head pain. Technically I always try to have a good light on the faces first, that is my priority point doing some portraits rather than the details around... Of course there are lots of situations where it could be fixed. But with a lack of time... ;) you know wedding is the photography where you have no second shot.. :)
    Thanks again

    Flash for me is a source of catch lights. i love them and want to see them when possible. It also allows me to control my lighting environment and produce natural portraits with accent (my lights)

    Faces and details: normal portraits, i'd agree with you, bridal portraits should have details in them - starting from facial expressions, to dress to bouquet, etc. Keep in mind that weddings are expensive. A lot of preparations go into putting one together and brides (aka bosses) want to see what they put in thus details. that is why, I emphasize importance of not blowing out the dress. Even 1/3-1/2 stop difference b/n face and dress might make a difference b/n good bridal portrait and GREAT bridal portrait.

    Personally. I love all the shots. Could get nit picky, but I'd imagine your clients are happy.

    We all love catchlights tho, I think the second picture would have benefited with a little glimmer in the eyes. I still love the shot though.

    Reflectors can provide some cool catchlights too.

    Shot #4 is golden, not a shot of an amateur that's for sure. The series is good too, well done. ;)
