And I love wedding photos that have included Pets..LOL!

Me too! I don't care if it's tacky as hell - I want a picture of my HTB with our 'boys' (two fawn male pug dogs). I'm even buying them little bow-ties so they can match Daddy in the pics. Before everyone starts, I KNOW this will be tacky as hell, but I don't care - I want a pic with my three special fellas!

Regardless of whether or not I think someone elses photos look tacky and staged, I still tell them they are the 'most-est beautiful-est' photos I have ever seen... wub.gif laugh.gif (I have a friend who, in my opinion, has some pretty woeful shots, but I get to see them EVERY TIME I visit, because she remembers how much I love them laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif )

My fave photo I have seen is from my best friends wedding, I was a BM, and the photographer took a photo of us a few seconds before we did the aisle dance, all crowded around the bride, and all looking VERY serious!!! No one smiling, no one talking, all just off in their own little world...Its beautiful biggrin.gif We didn't even know he had taken it until she got the shots back!

I love candid shots, where you don't even know the photo is being taken.

My cousin has one in her albulm of her hubby sheding a tear as she is walking down the aisle, its just so beautiful and emotional.

There is only one type of photo i loathe...the type where in every single shot the bride and groom are pashing . You just want to say enough already! We want to see your happy faces not the back of your heads!

E6 was huge in the '90's, it's still used now but more sparingly (hopefully).

wow i wasnt expecting such a retort... lol

hey look, each to their own i say, ive always said that, and if a photo looks good done with a certain effect, and it LOOKS BETTER than the original photo, so be it. But if its a deliberate attempt at something like Black and White, and the photos look GREY, then no.. it just doesnt hold for me.
Im one of those arsty farsty people that goes out and buys photos (latest collection was from teh canberra fires) and i know what i like and what i dont like.
Black ad white should have blown out whites almost glowing, and the black should be BLACK... not grey...

As for the angles, i dont mind afew tilted shots so long as there is a purpose for it.

hmm.. what i like..

i like those extreme closeups of detail.. like an eye, or an earing
I like the low angled shots whit alot of textures like stone and rocks and cliff faces, like when you roll your eyes up at it, the picture sort of draws itself.
I LOVE water (hey im in cronulla, what did you expect...lol)
I love the natural stuff, but i also understand that afew photos will have to be set up

more to come when i think of them! I gotta get back to work!

LOL! Each to their own when it comes to photos/staged/candid/otherwise! My personal favourite is anything which makes me look like a size 10 (I'm actually an 18) biggrin.gif

After getting my professional photos back, I hated 95% of them...Why, well they were all posed ones. The ceremony ones were taken from the back of the church...bridesmaids had poles coming out of either the top of their heads or ears...Ones of me in the car, there were people in the window on the other sides.

I was looking for a more photojournalistic style..

Hi Lisa,

I am surprised that the photographer stayed at the back of the church. At most of the weddings I have attended the photographer is right up there.... as close as the front aisle. I am disappointed for you. Hopefully you will have loads of friends and family shots to supplement.

It very much depends on the church; there is one particular church I know off were we are not allowed to come to the front, and we can't use flash. So we have to shoot from the back with no flash.
Altough we get some good shots, we can't get the different angles and closeups we usually do. There is nothing we can do about it mad.gif

What annoys me is that the guests of course ignore the minsters warnings and just keep on shooting with flash. I think next time I'll just take a small point and shoot camera and sit in the front pew. rolleyes.gif
