The background of the image seems really dull and... sad

The corner of the frame on the make-up'er is distracting me because its shiny.

The old t-shirt does not seem to be the most flattering piece of clothing in this situation...

All in all, for me at least. This picture doesn't give me that magical sense of *wedding* that it should. It just looks like moms getting a special treatment


I'm not a wedding photographer nor a very well versed professional. I consider myself a hobbyist at best.

I can see what your were trying to achieve and I bet you are thinking you can only work with the tools you are given (i.e. backdrop/clothing etc). The composition etc isn't too bad (maybe not cut the makeup artists elbow off) although there is a hue over the picture so a bit of post processing would be good. I am more interested in the makeup artist than the bride....

Whilst I am no expert though there is a huge leap between taking some photos of a wedding and being a wedding photographer. Professional wedding photographers help to make moments happen by careful placement of people and objects as well as framing shots well etc.

I would suggest investing your time looking at other wedding photographer photos and coming up with 10 or so picture styles that you like (and feel you can do) to try at your next session.

Hey All,

thank you for the feedback.

The Clothing of the bride I agree not the best, but she was like this when I got there.
Most of the brides I have shot for are not in dress when I arrive due to wanting to take shots of the dress.

The Make-up artist elbow was not something I did on my own it was how I was standing. Again my main focus was on the bride becoming ready.

My issue was the room they were in was dull and nothing to make it look nice, there was clothing and suitcases all over the floor which made it hard to walk around.

On one side of the room they had a Huge Exercise machine in the way so I was trying very hard not to get that in the shot.

Hope this helps ease the feeling of that one photo...

Something is super off with your color. All of your images have a gray hue with hardly any saturation. Are you exporting correctly?

You must not be seeing it.. they are all grey... look underexposed (After clicking on them to open them up). Poor lighting, backlit with no fill, chopped body parts, poor framing and composition, etc...

Do you own a flash? Do you know how to use it?

And since you DONT allow editing... we cannot show you what they should look like....

Do you calibrate your monitor?

This is why I cropped this photo.
there was only half of her son, and this was my fault.

Yes sure please

Original on top.. Edit on bottom... only exposure corrected...

$Junior-Grooms-Menedit.jpg

Since the subjects are backlit without any fill light, blown out backgrounds are the only option....
