I was a groomsman in my sister's wedding last weekend and managed to grab some shots.

From the rehearsal dinner. Not the best angle, I was sitting about 3 people down the table from them on their side. 55-200vr @200 f/6.3 1/320 ISO 800 sb-800 (diffuser)

A shot from the park... Managed to get them to look at me for a couple while the real photographer (a good family friend) was setting up his tripod. 55-200vr @86 f/4.5 1/250 ISO200

Very nice! I know you weren't happy with the angle in #1 but I think it's a good capture - I'm sure they'll be happy with the extra shots from you!

you did a nice job
while i'm not a fan of image #1 (you did the best you could there, i know)
the rest of very cool
the 2nd image.... nice
and the "candids" in that bar.... awesome (especially the one of the bride being fed a cherry by her SISTER... interesting)
those are the kind of pictures that the "official" photos might never see... but, will be cherished for a lifetime

well done

Thanks for the comments. I got a wide shot of that but someones head is in the foreground which was far more annoying. I sent her the links just now so hopefully she likes them.

I'm glad you like them! His entire family smokes so it's actually quite fitting. The odd thing is none of mine does, so he better quit soon (as promised).

Thanks Greg. Out of curiosity, what about #1 don't you like much? I thought the facial expressions worked out pretty well...

Not exactly sure how the cherry thing happened. Her twin had a drink with a cherry in it and asked the bride if she wanted it. Then turned to me and made me take a picture. I was fairly limited on the perspective with the 50 on the camera, but I think it turned out pretty good anyway. Fun shots showing what happened in between wedding and reception :biggrin:.

Ah, thanks for posting that leaf removal shot. I honestly didn't even notice that. Not sure how, too many shots to go through I suppose. :)

I will replace that picture momentarily.

Don't underestimate yourself.
IMO, these can be finished into quite nice pictures I would be happy with by cropping to concentrate the eye on the action and fixing the overexposure some.

you are RIGHT about the FUN shots
maybe i was wrong about that first time
upon second glance... it's better (in my eyes) than i originally thought

Thank you! I didn't think that one looked overexposed at all until you brought it down a little bit. I had actually cranked the exposure up .41 in post, but the face does look a little better taken back down.

Thanks for showing the crops. I do think pulling some of the edges out and focusing more on the eyes look very good. I am trying to keep the pictures at a 4x6 ratio so they have more options in printing. I'll let her know to have me crop them as opposed to random places if she wants other sizes.

I'm glad you like it then! If something was lacking, I just like to know what can be improved upon later so I can think about it.

Thanks again.

Beautiful pictures!
Thanks Jay!

They'll love seeing your perspective in their wedding shots. My favorites were from the disposables we left on the tables and in random seats during the ceremony. Thanks for sharing with us!

Thanks for commenting. I hope they like them.

I've been to a couple of weddings that had the disposables at the tables. Although I have never actually seen any of the developed film. I'm sure there would be some good stuff in those.
