    More Wedding Shots --C&C on PP welcome!

    I posted the picture of the green bottles with flowers hanging from the chairs last week I think. These two are from the same wedding. I posted both on fb for the couple and they have gotten tons of response. I don't know about the portrait below. I took it from maybe 35-40 feet away (using my Cybershot) and the lighting was behind her. She is so stunning it probably wouldn't matter what I did --she'd still look beautiful.

    I'm not looking at these on my own monitor so possibly not seeing them at their best.

    The lady has, in my view, trhe perfect bone structure for a profile shot like this. What I'd call classical beauty.. Good work.

    And that is quite a cake ......... but they shouldn't have let one of the guests drape a shawl over it! I've never before seen a cake design like that.

    Mike, Yes, she is a beautiful girl, with the personality to match. Very glad she is now part of our family.

    Yes, the cake was, well, unusual enough to make me take out my camera. It was really lovely. It matched the whole theme of her wedding. There was not one corner left unadorned and none of it was garish.

    Thanks for your kind words.

    Gretchen,
    What a lovely bride... IMO, this is the type of physique for which off the shoulder bridal dresses are designed. She looks regal in the image.
    Is there a bit of colour cast to the shadows around her shoulders?

    She is lovely! No, the light source was to her back and because of where I was sitting, and the angle, I couldn't get rid of it. I had to apply the art filters to get it out without ruining her face. At least that is all I could think of to do. So her shoulders are too dark.

    The Paster is reading the vows as I took this picture. So, she was real still. It was a perfect opportunity. I just hope the official wedding photographer got it as well.

    Radu --actually, I think she is trying not to cry --when it came time for her to repeat her vows, she finally broke down. She had worked so hard getting everything ready it just all came out. The groom was so wonderful in keeping her steady all she got thru it.

    My opinion was not too far
