    #1. I like. interesting setting

    #2. The depth of field is to shallow the groom is out of focus.

    #3. The blurred foilage in the background tends to pull the eye away from the subject.

    #4 & 5 Again the shallow depth of field spoils both these photos for me, particularly #4, it makes the girls arm look somehow detached.

    These are only my opinion and I know nothing about wedding photography, but these seem more about "art" photography rather than recording what most hope will be a once in a lifetime event.

    I like 3 the best - neat backdrop, and I don't find the foliage distracting (it is framed in nicely).

    4 and 5 also look good to me. I don't particularly get drawn to 1, and agree with the thoughts on 2 above by MaxJ.

    Great job!

    Really wonderful pics. I like the simplicity and colors of the shoot. Bride and Groom both are looking stunning with each other.

    As after two months my marriage is going to happen. So I always dream in the way that something new should be done to my weddings.

    They don't seem to have that closeness that you would expect out of a soon to be married couple. But I think you did a top notch job.

    I thin it's good you did photos of them before. Sometimes during the day, you don't get enough photos or the shots you want to get because it's such a busy day. I try to encourage bridal portraits before the actual wedding but not everyone is interested in doing so. I agree they need some closer cuddly shots, maybe you have some like that? But the photos look good. This also gives practice to see how a couple is to take photos of before a wedding. Some people can be very hard to photograph.

    Hi there!

    These are really awesome pics captured by a photographer. All five images are very captured. Amazing shoot.

    I used to do wedding photography and I like them all but especially 2,4 and 5

    Oh and the shallow depth of field is o.k. in 2 as well Something a little different and adds depth
