    My cousin asked me to do his wedding in March, and this weekend, he was nice enough to come down here to take some pics. Some of my 'favorites'... which I still think they suck to my own standards :hs:

    EDIT: did some messing around on flickr... http://flickr.com/photos/sassani/sets/72157609247591007/

    there's the set, will redo the thread again in the morning. :big grin:

    I like these a lot! The skin looks a little orange though? I just got a new monitor tho so it might be on my end

    I like it because of the expression on her face... it was a 'caught' moment, nothing posed.

    How do you feel about him and the earrings?

    Looks better without IMO.

    I like them except #3 I noticed her boob first and foremost. Which is fine for me because they look like nice boobs but maybe not great for engagement shots.

    For walking shots try to get them to look at each other, it looks more natural than them looking at the camera. Also, watch where you crop them, on some you're cropping exactly at the joints. Otherwise the pics are good but try to engage them with each other more, and less with the camera.

    looks like a reflector or some fill flash could have brightened up the shots of them on the path. their faces look a bit underexposed. nice set though!

    Thanks... I'll have to try that next time. I wasn't happy between the contrast of shadows and sunlight. :hs:
