Beginning The Long Walk

By jusophine  
From my second wedding last year, taken near Windsor castle looking down the Long Walk. Thought I would post, see what people think. Got more weddings booked for this year so reviewing all my work, seeing where I can make improvements etc.

All comments much appreciated...be gentle with me!

Love the long view down the avenue, the exposure and the happy smile from the bride, but the pose looks uncomfortable for her and feels like the groom is maybe trying to hide - I wonder if you could have got them to relax and chat to one another and then got them to look round for the shot?
Hope this isn't too harsh, I've been doing weddings for a few friends now and posing them is something I hate doing, and often find it's easier to leave them to it

Not too harsh at all, and I agree posing is tricky. What I didn't mention as a background to this shot is that myself and my assistant had just legged it up the long walk from where I 'had' left my car. I say had, when we got there it had been clamped and towed away. Cost me 450 to get back meaning instead of making money from the gig it actually cost me money! The fact I managed to compose myself long enough to take any further shots is a miracle but I guess it's all experience. You live and you learn!!!!!LOL

Isn't that the way with weddings - nothing goes completely to plan and you succeed or fail on your ability to soak it up and adapt, but 450 is particularly harsh

I agree about the pose but the image itself is very good. Like the dof and pov you have used. I do weddings part time - got two so far this year. I picked up a tip from a Registrar and that was to make sure the groom is always on the right - she actually said "always keep on the right side of your wife" How true that is. Traditionally the man is always on the right, keeping his sword arm free! Sorry to hear about the fine - a big chunk out of your fee - ouch!
