  • Some new wedding Shots!

    Hello everyone,

    I am fairly new here but thought I would post some images to see what you guys think (CC welcome). This was a wedding we did a couple weeks ago and had a lot of fun. Please let me know what you think and what type of price bracket you think this quality of work should be going for.

    Justin, I like them a lot. The first one is great. One thing that bugs me a bit on the second is that there is so much attention being drawn to the nose. I think it would be better if you saw her eyes in the mirror.

      Thanks I agree! It is a bit distracing, but i really liked the picture.

      Does anyone have some pricing ideas?

        Hey Justin,

        I think these are not bad. Not great, but not bad. What could be improved? Well, I agree that the mirror shot should have had the eye as the main focus instead of the nose, mouth, etc.. Also, get closer to eliminate the distracting backgrounds. Dont't ever be afraid to get in there close.

        I like the third and 4th ones, but the the expresions and angle kind of kill the last one for me.

        Price bracket is tough to say as California has a much higher standard of living than Texas. Also, you have to judge by what your market demands. Get to know some local photographers and see what they charge and start referring to each other, talk shop, etc....

        Keep going, you're on your way!

            Great tips so far - and keep posting work for cc - NOTHING can help you grow more than studying cc! How many weddings have you done thus far? That plays an important role as well. BTW...welcome to the Pro4um!!

              OK... #1 is nice, but think the dress is too flatly lit...

              #2 is a great concept shot, and works well, but in this case the nose should not have been the center of focus, regardless of how much you like it, it doesn't work... No-one likes to see the snout as the center of attention. I think this shot would have been better served if the angle was changed to include a little of the back of her head, and of course had her eyes in the mirror...

              #3 I like, but I did recently (by mistake) happen onto a tighter shot like this. I happen onto the dressing stage with a 300 f/2.8 in hand. I shot it as it unfolded and hand some amazing tight shots that really hopped. Having mom's hands all over that dressed really spoke out loud. Nothing wrong with what you have here, Just food for thought here...

              #4 OK, but you may try a tighter shot of the hands with the bouquet and leave it at that. This looks like a dance shot with the bouquet as a center of attention. Again, not bad, but a suggestion as difference...

              #5 I like but think that the couple should have been on the other side of the white wood and the angle should have gone the other way. Again, offering options to be different...

              Price ??? $$$ Get as much as your market will allow...

              Isn't it great when a wedding is fun?

                Thanks guys this really helps! I agree about the snout shoot, no matter how much i like it, it still need to have a different focus to be a quality picture.

                Wendy this is my 4th wedding.

                Thanks to everyone for the imput please keep it coming!

                  I am not sure I agree with this statement, a flat lit photo would show no shadows at all, look at the dress, it is light and then transists to a nice shadow and you can see all the waves in the dress, a flat lit dress would not show that detail. I like the first one personally.

                    Two quick comments because it is late and I am about to finish downloading the wedding images.

                    The last one does not look natural for the couple. This would have been great with the hands down and his face tilted toward her head.

                    Also, price bracket is far more determined on marketing than on quality. Sure you have to take decent images - you do. Marketing is the real deal. And I am finding out more and more that in weddings it is networking. Network with those vendors. Next week I will send a shot of the cake to vendor x and a shot of the flowers to vendor y, and a picture of asparagus to the caterer (REALLY good stuff - the photography wasn't bad either ).

                    Welcome to the forum.
