Chasmz… This is a really nice presentation.
The set is completely unposed and quite personal which is perfect for the occasion.

From your comments I was not really sure if you were the photographer
or had chosen these as an example of what you would like to do.

Mandrake.

The 2nd set is best, the bride doesn’t have her face covered in the 1st image and the face by the flowers in the last image is playful without being for lack of a better word, cheesy, like the pointing at the rings; that’s, at least for my tastes too literal.

 

2 main things that stick out to me are both with the black and white image. In an album spread we want consistency across the board, so all photos in black and white or all photos in color, this applies to content as well, we don’t want a spread with a serious shot, a crying shot and a laughing shot. We want to carry the emotion through the spread, not saying that was an issue just an FYI while on the topic.

The other thing is with the black and white image the grooms expression and especially his hands are not matching the story the bride is telling in the image. He is very stiff, nervous or whatnot. People love natural shots but here’s the thing to remember, it’s a still photo so you can direct and as long as you can extract that emotion for a fraction of a second that’s what counts. Excluding the ceremony and dances I am not afraid to tell anyone what I want, my job is to make them look their best and open the album decades later on a bad day and remember how fantastic their day was.

 

This image for example I directed it completely, I did unfortunately overlook the hand of the 2nd bridesmaid that is in a fist but I positioned them, told them where to look, at the groom and the last bridesmaid to look off, and said something ridiculous to get a natural reaction. The girl who did the fist had a problem area under her chin where if her face was down she would get a double chin so I had her bend forward slightly and look up to stretch that out. I only say this because my first few weddings I was more comfortable hiding behind my camera getting natural moments, once I stepped out of my comfort zone and took control I noticed a much needed improvement in my work.IMG_7544.jpg

 

It will be uncomfortable at first being so hands on but as you learn how to position people to make them look fantastic and work to pull out the emotions you will be surprised at the difference. I like your main image and the interesting perspective, way to keep an eye out in moving around and finding interesting ways to shoot a scene.

I totally agree with Mike that the inclusion of one black and white photo in the group is not a great idea.

As I understand it, you are asking us which grouping of the four individual photos is the best.
I like the first set the most.  It begins with the groom holding his hand to hide their kiss.
This perfectly sets the playful mood depicted in the other photos in the group.

Mandrake.

Before I am planning to give one (1) edited photo in a frame however I change my mind… I’ll give them a photo book.

Here are some sample pictures (edited it before I read the suggestion and comment of Mr. Mike)…

The cover looks like it is for a funeral, not a wedding.

First page: The 1st photo is not attractive and shows the light stand.  The 2nd photo is overexposed.

Second page:  The 1st photo has too many and too similar images.  The 2nd photo is good (groom is the boss) lol.

Third page:  This is good (Marriages often end in a big fight after happier beginnings).

Mandrake.

Oh, you did a lot of job here. As an experiment – that’s great, but as for work a personally use some web retouching services not to deal with routine
