    Lovely family portrait. I would have just made sure that the foreground is symmetrical. By that I mean make sure the person all the way on the left to the person on the way on the right are equidistant from the edge of the frame. Other than that great color and great exposure. Love kandids!

    there seems like too much separation here, and the inconsistency of where people are looking make it look like more of an unplanned candid than a planned “focus on the bride” shot. Centering her might have helped a little.

    I personally would have gone for a wider aperture to take some of the focus off the trees behind them and keep it on the people.

    Thanks. My thought proces was to have them all in focus. What aperture would you suggest?

    I usually shoot stuff like this at f/2.8 if I’m stacking people or wider if they’re in a straight line, just because I want to pull focus to the subjects and away from the background. Others may disagree with how wide I like to shoot though, so your mileage may vary!
