This year I have gone a minimalist style and been shooting with only two primes, 24mm and 50mm. Sometimes I grabbed one and just went with it. So when this wedding came along, I wanted to see if I could cover the entire wedding with my two primes.

It was a challenging and fun experience to say the least, and their wedding venue (a small cottage on a private property) and the weather at the outdoor ceremony and reception (pouring rain) made it even more interesting.

 

Let me know what you guys think. I would appreciate if you can be specific on what you like or what you don't like (please be gentle ^^)

I briefly looked through them, and all I can say is, wow. I really like your style and think you are very gifted as a photographer.

 

Some off the thumbnails you might want to revisit a bit, they have some awkward cut-offs.

Thank you for the kind words, Maarten. I will look to make some adjustment on the thumbnails.

Someone need a better cut, especially when they have a lot of space over the head, hand cutted and other things can be better, like chromatic aberration and low sharp, but not bad for the others.

Ah yes, I try to be careful with composition, but it is always challenging when photographing weddings. Things happen unexpectedly and I capture as well as I could. Thank you for your comment, Emanuele.

 Nicely done. I do like how you desaturated some photos into B&W. A nice mix of posed and unposed shots. Also the kids.....kids always make people smile. 

 

 I am not a Wedding photog, but someday I plan to do just that.

 There are some real nice shots you have a nice style and combination of posed verse non posed shots nice blend of B&H shots. Be careful when cropping shots especially of people walking, you need to leave room in the direction of travel. Also some have a little to much area above the subjects that can be removed.

Thank you very much for the kind words, ebit. I am not sure if I do anything differently than most. Most times I go for less contrast and smooth tone using curves. I do a lot with curves.
