Great wedding photo. Shame you couldn't save this for the romance challenge. What's more romantic than a wedding? I like the black and white.

Lovely wedding photo, the suit is really dark though and has no details.

nice angle - perhaps cropped a bit tight on top. B/W's a good choice for this.

I see gerber daisies in her bouquet and I image it is very colorful, which makes me wish this were in color, but that is just my personal preference. Excellent portrait!

This is lovely of the couple, but I wish the background had been a bit less visible.

Beautiful black and white wedding photo. I think the tight crop works well for this shot, although I am curious how it would look opened up a little more.
