    Edit: I am lazy... that's why I provided a link only. I would be happy to post pictures here too...
    You also didn't post numbers or settings for anything. Sorry...don't have time to sort it all out and give proper cc. I see lots of things that could be better and I don't like the over use of the flare effect. Mostly issues with composition.

    Oh, just saw the settings posted for the first image. If they are all the same...that itself is evidence of a problem. These images really shouldn't all have the same exact settings.

    I will give it a go, but I am going quickly, so forgive me if it sound harsh
    #1 they blend into the background with skin tones and the bright tree pulls my eye away
    #2 the conversion seems muddy, her face doesn't look relaxed or happy and the dappled light on his shoulder bugs me
    #3 She looks good here, but his shirt looks blown and hot spots on his face, background is distracting
    #4 Cute and natural shot. Could be warmed up some more
    #5 is there a tilt here? I am not a big fan of hazy, but still a sweet photo
    #6 Blown spots, angle and bright background make it look snapshotty or accidental
    #7 My favorite, although I would rotate it CCW 1/2 degree.

    Okay, found some time.

    #1 - Rule of thirds!!! That is all. You should be able to recrop this so that it has a workable composition. I'd try to crop that tree right out too...the blown spot is distracting.

    #2 - Not liking this conversion. Wish she was kissing back. Just not that perfect moment caught.

    #3 - Really not a great position for the man....a very feminine pose and her face looks uncomfortable. I'd prefer some connection between them...this feels posed.

    #4 - the best so far, but not a fan of the vignette used here...it's really muddy. The whole image could use a boost...maybe exposure...maybe contrast...maybe both.

    #5 - that's a lot of boobage! Not a fan of the composition here. I don't particularly like the background...it would have been really nice focused closely on those faces in this shot.

    #6 - my least favorite shot. Color is way off...composition is clumsy and akward. The blown background is doing nothing but distract in this image. Wish you had changed the angle so that the building was the only backdrop.

    #7 - I really think you may want to explore a new way of creating vignette...yours are very muddy looking. I like the composition of this image. Her dress looks green.

    Amber posted some great CC! I also am not liking the vignette much. What are you using for that? My favorite is the last one. I just wish the vignette wasn't too strong. i think you did great though! weddings are HARD! i only did one though lol it was hard enough for me. But I wouldn't mind doing it again...but probably as a second shooter too.

    You can totally ignore me if I want b/c I am not on your level, but here's my cc-

    1) I think this is a good shot. I think if you crop it for ROT, it might be even better, but I don't mind the comp to be honest with you.

    2) I too wish she was kissing back- but that's not your fault! Your conversion is a bit muddy, but that's just my taste- I like brighter conversions.

    3) Great shot. I wish whatever is above her head wasn't there though.

    4) probably my fav. They look so natural here. I don't mind the vignette, it could be toned down a bit though.

    5) Love. I like the comp and the flare.

    6) Not sure about the flare here. Her face isn't the most flattering here either, but again, not your fault.

    7) cute. I wish maybe it was a closer crop b/c I feel like their faces are lost in the sky.

    Weddings are HARD I agree! I am glad you got out there and gave it a shot. I remember their engagement shoot. Great job overall!

    Thanks everyone. I do have other shots. Hmmm. The vignette action I am using is from pioneer woman. Will check to see why they look muddy. I can remove the vignette all together if necessary. The settings are not the same for all picture, sorry about that, thought I posted them all.

    I wish I could see them here but I'll have to wait until I get home, since I can't remember my ILP password right now :/

    Here are the settings for the rest of the pictures. I will work on these and repost edits.

    #1 - SS 1/125, f3.5, ISO 400
    #2 - SS 1/125, f3.2, ISO 300
    #3 - SS 1/200, f3.5, ISO 1600
    #4 - SS 1/640, f4, ISO 400
    #5 - SS 1/100, f4, ISO 400
    #6 - SS 1/200, f3.5, ISO 400
    #7 - SS 1/500, f3.5, ISO 1250

    Hmm.... for some reason I was happy at ISO 400... I feel soo stuck with photography *insert pouty face here* sigh.
