    Default 3rd Wedding

    I had the pleasure recently of photographing Stacey and Roberts wedding in Masterton. This was my third ever wedding and the learning curve was still as steep as it was for the first two!

    Nice shots!

    but:
    groom's hand needs to be in contact with wife when kissing though, it's s'posed to be a romantic moment they just can't resist, not a chore. Best to have the bride's face showing if poss. Him smelling the perfume on her wrist or neck makes a nice shot, usually get a laugh or two as well. Heads touching with both sets of eyes closed works, specially when you tell them to think naughty...

    Cool, thanks for the pointers. It's still very new to me. I usually don't pose them and just let them find their own natural positions, but I can see where you are coming from.

    I like #3. Might look abit better with a tigher crop maybe(?). Not sure about the selective colour though.

    I like #2, but I wish his other hand was touching her rather than just hanging there. #3 would work if you got rid of the selective colour? Did you have any more ones like that but at a lower angle?

    Like #3 too but not selective colour. Be interested to see it in natural SOOC state or as converted b/w with lighting emphasis on bride and dress (which I think you have already). #2 should have a cigarette in grooms hand!

    Take it on the chin, wedding poses are really hard to manage, so much to observe so much to manage, but just keep shooting.

    Not at all, just takes practice, and if a shot is poor, just keeping on shooting will just give you more poor shots.

    Nice photo shot and amazing couple! Background Image is also very beautiful. Nice job. The good thing about the photo is the lighting effect.

    Some good tips above, like the shoes shot, wouldn't have thought of adding that one to the ring/dress/bouquet list etc

    Read somewhere a good tip for natural relaxed poses is to tell them these are just test shots to get a feel for the scene and lighting.
