C&C as always are appreciated, as they help me to improve myself. Here some tips I hope they help when it is your time.

 

Lessons learned:
1. Bring a white balance card. (the dining hall for the reception has all kind of weird lighting).

2. Bring 5-hour energy or equivalent ( The party sometimes end very late). 

3. Pack convenient packaged food. (power bars are awesome)

4. Make B&G or the priest make the announcement before the ceremony so everyone put away their phones, tablets, point & shoot, ect. Even after the ceremony is done. I had the hardest time trying to take formal picture when everyone thinks they're professional with their instagram filters.

 

Anymore tips are greatly consider valuable as they would be great help to the community in general and myself specifically.

Hung, these are awesome shots!  My favorite is #5, the black and white makes this particular photo timeless.  I would be sure to add that one to your portfolio.  Also, the cell phone in the third picture is too bad. I think they will be happy with your work!  Great Job!

Ring shot is my fave and the dancers in the reception.  

 

Wedding events are not easy to cover. I give you 2 thumbs up for that.

I agree with all especially #4. When I was doing photos of the wedding party someone had there phone out taking photos and in one of the shots my shadow is on them. Glad I took multiples. Great shots btw!

love 5,7 and 8.  number 1 would be a great shot every thing is right but the extra hand that appears to belong to no one.

brilliant shots well done

These are some cool images.  I am shooting my first wedding in March, and I am getting a bit nervous.  (I mostly shoot senior portraits).    I love the black and white ring shot!

Image #2 - I usually make flower-shots in the sun placing the brides flowers on her train (is that the correct term for the long white-thing on her dress???) while she stands in her dress. I don't like #1 + #4 with the alter in the background. These are very messy and less Depth of Field could have made them much better.

 

That said - you are a way better wedding photographer than me ... (c:

 

As everybody else I love the b/w. Not all images is b/w'able but this one sure is...

 

BTW - love the uniform. Here in Denmark we don't see such an outfit often due to we don't have such military traditions.

Hi. #8 might benefit from a little vignetting to lessen the distractions in the picture. Overall great work;)
