Re: how to: great wedding photos ?

[QUOTE=3bigmamas;310161]The Canon one? I used it back a few weeks a few years back on a couple of cameras and I really didn't liked the feel of it...

Although you did list some great lenses, the simple fact is that a lens is like an artist's brush - it has characteristics, pros and cons - not to mention expense. The Canon f1.4 holds a distinction of being a very good image producing lens at a modest price. It's quite light, reasonably fast, and offers a smooth bokeh. Wonderful photos have been taken with it and will continue to be. It is up to the artist to discover it's potential. Photographers like different tools - an unobtrusive light 50 f1.4 is just the ticket in lots of situations where some of those other lenses would be out of place - believe it or not. Read this:

Re: how to: great wedding photos ?

The pictures from your original message are done with primes (you can see from the shallow depth of field quality on her portraits) or good zooms (24-70 2.8 or 70-200 2.8). The light is overcoast day with no any fill in reflector or flash (you can see from the eyes shadows). I mentioned before in another wedding pictures post - wedding photographers don't have time for advanced retouching, they deal with tones of pictures. I'm 99% sure that an action for warm vintage look was used here. Personally, I like TRA actions, they are classic. Go to their website, go through the before after examples, and I'm sure you'll find matching action.
These pictures are not even sharp. There was longer exposure used (1/30th or 1/15th) with high iso, I think. That adds to the look, too.

Re: how to: great wedding photos ?

I know this is an older post, but by taking a quick look at these images I can almost guarantee the photographer is using VSCO Film (01 at the time of this post; they've since released 02). It's a plugin "action" for lightroom, adobe raw or aperture. As Pics2 said, most wedding photographers don't have time to edit each image individually in photoshop. It would take ages to get through them all.

The recipe is in its Histogram. That's it.

I made this effect in Adobe Lightroom, using Tone Curves only. Sorry for my English.

I know I'm going to get flamed here (again) but it astonishes me what some people on this forum consider good photography.

I consider the look to come from the costume and the locations, after that go crazy in Lightroom or your preferred method of toning images.
