Okay, my jaw just hit the floor. (And given I have a bit of a glass jaw, that's not a good thing. But I digress). Those are absolutely stunning shots. Beautiful bride, beautiful smile, beautiful dress(!), beautiful pics.

(....Although the angle of her bodice in #6 seems jarring to my eye.)

her right hand fingernails are weird in 1 and 2...

2 is my favourite though. Awesome emotion.

:stun: Those are absolutely amazing. #2 is my fave too. The lighting in all of them is spot on, i love the dramatic yet somehow dreamy feel.

Dark hair like that can be really tough to get right sometimes, but you hit the spot, especially in #7 :thumbup:

Unbelievable.

These are really nice! I like the lighting and posing of these, it's subtly dramatic.

I'm not really a fan of the blown curtains in #1 and the too-smooth of skin, but other than that, they're great!

Hehe Emo, those are her teeth. Should I tell her to darken them a bit?
(Sorry, that just tickled me!)

Elsaspet - STUNNNNNNNNING (said in a sing song-y voice :mrgreen:) Beyond gorgeous, but I don't expect anything less from you! I have a few comments and a few "nitpicks" on a couple though! (If you don't mind! ;))
#1-Absolutely gorgeous location & gorgeous bride! The way she is holding her hand on the railing though cuts off one of her fingers making it look like she's only got 4 fingers! I love the pose though! The way she's looking down kind of reminds me of Romeo & Juliet balcony scene!
#2-LOVE her smile! Very fun picture! Again though, with her fingers - she's got her hand on the railing on a weird angle.
#3- LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT! I know some people aren't fond of those types of borders but I am! tee hee and I just love this one!
#5-Love this one. Love the pose, love the dress, love the flowers! My only nitpick is her pearls that are falling behind her back look a little awkward to me.
#6-Love the pose, love the dress! But her bodice is at an awkward angle on her chest....however, on a sidenote, can I have a dress like that when I get married???? (insert sigh of jealousy here!)
#7-She looks so lonely!!! But very stunning! I think here too, her dress looks funny on her chest. But I can tell that its how she's "hunching-but not really hunching" her back.

~I would so LOVE to have your talent! I really want to get into Portrait Photography & am checking out photography programs at colleges around here! Did you go to school and take photography classes or did you just learn it all yourself? I wish you worked/lived around here! I'd be your shadow, trying to learn from you!
~Also, what post processing software do you use for skin-smoothing? Do you have a "how-to" posted around here somewhere?

Again, BEAUTIFUL photos! Thanks for sharing!
