    Shot this wedding this past Saturday (my birthday!). Really like how it came out but wish I had a little bit more time with the bride and groom for some couple's photos. Any critiques/comments/ideas welcome!

    Some really nice photographs! AND you are totally right--a pretty bride sure does not hurt the results! I really liked the sunset shot placed in there, and the dancing immediately following with the blue hour windows showing behind the spectators--that was a very nice way to show the time of day and the timing of the events.

    Very very good set. I would be happy if you were to have shot my wedding.

    I'm not sure about #21 though. It's a LOT of wall and the groom is cut off...just seems like some wall could be cropped out.

    The gal in the sneakers, jumping for the bouquet, is awesome!

    These are some great shots!

    Can I ask what camera/lens combos you where running?

    I was creeping on your EXIF data and see 85mm 1.4, 70-200 2.8, and then some wide angle (something capable of 16mm)

    Did you have two bodies on your person, or where you swapping those lenses that fast? Or a second shooter?

    I know this is a lot of questioning :D

    Wow, great set!

    Can I ask you why you chose to underexpose the cake in #23? Was it just so that the sunset behind it would be captured the way you wanted, and if so, why didn't you use a little more flash to bring the lighting on the subject up more?

    It's really the only shot in the set I don't like, but I'm interested to hear what your creative thought process was for it, because I might learn something. ;)

    terrific, couldn't imagine a better set that looked as real as these.
    If I were ever to get married again, I'd hire you in an instant.

    Beautiful photos. I don't say this often but your photos are what I strive for with my own images.

    Thank you for leaving the metadata intact!

    My wife actually lit this with a video light, and it didn't have QUITE enough power to fully match the sunset behind it. My flash was mounted across the room and I didn't have much time for the shot. I could probably brighten it up a bit more in post if I wanted to. Good eye!
