Default Dan & April's Wedding

April, who is a friend of our family, wanted me to photograph her wedding
Now I have only done one other wedding before, and am no means a wedding photog, but I accomplished what April requested, and that was getting the facial expression of Dan, as he sees her for the 1st time in the wedding dress

I actually got a whole sequence of it from #1 to #2

1 - Dan goes from this expression ......



2 - To this one ..........



3 - As he sees his Bride....



4 - And then Dan breaks down......



April had another request...make sure to get her Dad kissing her, and his expression right after

5 - Father's Kiss..



6 - Dad breaks down...



7 - Dad says.."take care of my baby Dan"...



8 - Dan is a very happy man...



9 - April & Dan gettin "hitched"(Yes she is a country gal)



10 -



11 -



12 - April & Dan start their wedded life together....



13 - The happy couple....



And April requested this photo also...

14 -



I have more post work to do, but just want some input as to what these photos need for improvement The ceremony was on a public beach on Lake Michigan in Sheboygan, WI, so yes there are people in the BG that were hard to work around!

Thanks for looking at my meek work

Is she actually barefoot? Looks to be shoeless in #12.

As for C&C, several look a little flat, but the low contrast may be required there in the sun.

Yup! Barefoot for the entire day/night! I don't know why either

I posted these SOOC ( the 1D classic) except for crop and resize, as for some reason... all of my edited pics do NOT look like they do on my screen when I post them here. My edited pics look better, but I just wanted to share the story I guess, behind what she wanted for pics.

Thanks Steve!

I like them all except #10, he kind of looks like a stalker peering around a tree...
