    If I asked you to look at these photos and from the perspective of you looking for a wedding photographer... would you consider them as someone with the ability to get the job done... or not? I'm not talking price or anything else... just your impressions of character, style and quality alone.

    If you needed a few more examples to make a decision look HERE.

    Just looking for some input. :)

    Thanks.

    (Edited to try to make it a little clearer to define what I was looking for... pretend they are not my shots... lol)

    Those are some nice pics Jerry. I'd definatly have you in the short list, but it would come down to budget and if I could afford you :p

    Just looking at these 4 images, I would say yes.
    They show nice use of light, nice use of location/scenery, interesting posing and they make the bride look good.

    Short answer....yes.

    You show that you have a good (great) eye for composition, handle light extremely well. Do great posing or capturing the moment and beautifully exposed subjects and equally well exposed backgrounds.

    Plus I can tell that those were shot with a Nikon which makes it even better.....almost gives them an angelic glow just because of the that (I keed, I keed).

    hehe yah ya did ;)
    But still a valid point I have heard before (got bored and watched all of Zak Arise's critique videos one night). If you want clients you got to show your not a one trick horse - I'm sure you know that so get out and get a few more weddings done/online and then pickout the best and your away!

    :confused:

    True... but this isn't my first wedding and I do have portfolio from at least 8-9 other weddings, and I have 3-4 more weddings to go this year, and I am a firm believer that we are only as good as our last shoot, because we always improve... at least we should be.

    I just needed some opinions to give me an idea of where I am. I am my own worst critic and sometimes it takes an outside opinion of where I am vs where I want to be.

    I sincerely do appreciate the opinions.

    Jerry, I prefer these pics over the pics that one of my teachers, who has been a working pro for years, does and would honestly recommend you over him to friends getting married... price depending of course :)
