Sharing some of the edits I've done so far. I haven't touched most of the really troubling ones, but will share them when I get to them as I'd love some feedback. In the end, as I'm going through these I think to myself...I would have been thrilled to get photos like these at my wedding...but I'm so disappointed at what I didn't get. More portraits of the couple, bridesmaids, groomsmen, etc.... I'm hoping that they will be so pleased with what they do get that they don't really notice what they didn't get.
Obviously, this is too many to offer full comments on. Feel free to comment or CC if you like, but it's totally not necessary. Just sharing really.
1. This one was actually a ton of work. A good example of the back lighting. There was tons of haze and a big flare on the bottom of one of the bridesmaids that I had to remove.

4. They had wooden wedding rings and a deep love for trees. I placed the rings around a leaf of a fig tree that they had used during the ceremony and will be planting in their yard.

5. Another shot that was a ton of work. Horribly back lit....I underexposed them quite a bit, so dealing with the noise in this image was quite a challenge. I still love it though.

6. I love this shot. Before the ceremony they wanted to do a blindfolded meeting. I had to clone a person out of the left hand side of this image...but I think it turned out really well.

10. An example of one of the shots I was a touch disappointed with. I knew she wanted to do these foot shots, but we really didn't have time to do it until after it was already pitch black out. Also...there was no good location to do it. I wanted grass underfoot, but there wasn't enough grass nearby to do it right. SO...I was able to clone the grass in this one.
