I have never shot anything formal before let alone a wedding. A week before the event I was asked to shoot it....HUH? I think I was crazy for saying yes, but then again they were crazy for asking right? Well here is a shot from my first wedding. Please let me know what you think.

nice pictures,
the first - too much light in the sky area.
second one i think that the background is distracting, you should use a smaller aperture number F2.8-f4.

Well sir, if #1 is anything to go by, then I think you've done a splendid job. #1 is very classy and well post-produced. Yes, it has too much sky, but the scene and the moment are well captured here.
Well done.

A bit more PP could make that first shot a real beauty.

I think you can lose the right hand side up to the first vertical wrought iron railing - especially getting rid of the high building which draws the eye away from the couple. It does cramp the shot a little but you can get away with it and there is still enough space to their right. Then a little bit of work on her could get back the right tones for her skin and hair - no problem.

Can't say it better myself, so I won't.

Thanks every one. Great points by all ! These were taking the day after the wedding and I left the camera on ISO 1600. Big mistake!!! I needed to do some major editing on all of the shots I took that day. I will post more photos. Please continue with the helpful advise. This forum rocks!!!!
