Re: Need help with my brothers wedding pictures

One of the common characteristics that professional wedding photos have in common is that the backgrounds are blurred, not always, but especially on the portraits. You can select the bride, groom and officiant and use lens or gaussian blur on the backgrounds, which will make the pictures look like they were taken with an expensive lens at a low f-stop, 2.8, 3.2, or 4. The brightness could be increased a bit and color could be be popped using vibrance. I hope this helps. I've attached your first shot with lens blur (only messed with radius), darkened the background with levels, and a vignette to darken a bit more.
