thank you for your submission. As a wedding photographer I will be probably a bit more subjective as this is my bread and butter. Wedding photography critique will be the easiest for me.

 

Bride in window light

Bride in Window Light

 

Content 5 out of 10

A better than average portrait of the bride. A good idea to shoot from above but this is not the best expression for her. You might want to have her looking at you in this position, get you a smile or something.

Composition 7 out of 10

Good angle shooting from above, I would have had her on the left hand side and follow the rule of thirds. Well balanced image

Image quality 6 out of 10

Nice and well exposed, good vignetting, lack of enthusiasm, a bit cold for my taste.

Final TRS mark 6 out of 10

Overall a better than average photo I have seen worse, I have seen better. You need a bit of director skills and a bit more editing to make this better will help

Bride last thoughts

 

Bride's Last Thoughts

 

Content 6.5 out of 10

I can’t really judge content for weddings as a I do this very often. To me it is a good subject…standard for me but I see many other photographers not doing this.

Composition 5 out of 10

well balanced subject in the image, but I cannot see any other intentions of framing and composing.

Image quality 4 out of 10

Image dark, looks average, underexposed, confusing…either go to extremes in this sample…perfect silhouette or overexpose the window and have the bride better exposed. I am not sure though as sometimes i do many variations myself. I cannot see in this image the wow factor…

Final TRS mark 5+ out of 10

despite the good intention, the message is lost in the other issues

The wedding ring

 

The Ring

 

 

Content 7 out of 10

standard shot, good image, have seen much worse, but much better. Ring with the vail on a mirror is probably a better choice. Elements are related, they speak to each other

Composition 8 out of 10

Rule of thirds vertical and horizontal, for ring and vail. A very good composition. You might want to consider getting a closer macro shot so you can have the ring bigger in the image. What kens did you use?

Image quality 5 out of 10

a bit overexposed for my taste, this is about the ring, and you lost details. It defies the purpose, I thing great details of the ring are lost by the BW approach.

Final TRS mark 6.6 out of 10

Overall a good wedding picture

I have seen your website. It is a good start, you need to have more experience and you will do good. I can see a beginner wedding photographer, with good skills and eyes, just need more expereince. You will find plenty of advice on this website. Good you tell us what gear do you have, your intention and how do you market yourself?
