    My friend is getting married, and I'm doing the wedding for them, we just did the engagement photos tonight.. it was fun. Nice and laid back since he's one of my best friends.

    I really dont like taking photos of people.. it's weird to me. Didn't much care for it and hope I never have to do this to make money, it's just not for me. If they were strangers it would have SUCKED.

    Great set man! It's much better than the Hockey stuff IMO. Then again, I think Hockey is boring.

    Now that I look more, they did a great job posing/looking natural.

    Very VERY impressive for first shoot. :bowdown:

    I was trying to be a bit different.. but still keep it nice. I hate typical wedding stuff.

    some nice work there. A good and happy feeling comes through your photos.

    That is harder to capture than simple sharpness.

    Nice work! I particularly like 5 and 11 - very natural and I love the vivid contrasting colors.

    #4 is the most flattering for her... remember that angle when you shoot the wedding.

    #6 is a growing "niche" shot... I'm seeing all kinds of photogs doing that shot now.

    Great set over all, they all show true emotion, which is usually pretty hard to catch.

    I really like your composition in some! The way you frame them in a few of the last shots is awesome. First few pics I kind of thought meh, but each one down seems to just get better for the most part :rofl: Good job

    Wow. Your shots are so honest. You've transformed 2 unassuming people in such a stunning way. Nice work.
