The links don't open up, but are to a facebook page.
The first one has little detail in the dress and the flower girl's face. My opinion is that there is too much contast in the image at the expense of detail. However, parents might like it for sentimanetal reasons and capturing a moment. Good is relative.
The back view of bride and groom is an unusual take on the subject. I don't think it has worked very well, but again that is only my opinion. Despite the fact that there is a full gamut of tones, it looks lacking in contrast. I'd have wanted more detail in the dress and the background at the top to be less of a solid black tone.

Have to agree with Hugh - in the 1st image, the dress is just "blown-out" and not really a "keeper".

The 2nd (black & white) image of the bride and groom from the rear doesn't really cut-it.

Generally, the rear view of a bride's dress is normally to show detail such as an intricate pattern or the bodice lacing. Usually just a "crop".

Other "rear views" would be in a scenic setting against interesting land-scape and sky-scape such as a setting sun.

In fairness it is not easy to work out the link you need to post a image [not a web page]. Now lets hope this works !

My first post was not being facetious btw. Were you asking in terms of wedding photos, portfolio use. For yourself or comments you plan to pass back to the photographer?

From the view of a model portfolio, which is what this section is for I cannot see what they are supposed to bring. Particularly when it comes to the back view of the bride with an amputated left arm

I have been 'involved' in weddings for c. 20 years and my far-better-half now does considerably more than me.

I can only hope that these are not the actual wedding images of yourself or anyone you know, as unfortunately all of the 'negative' remarks above are justified. If my partner produced these then I don't think she would be covering 50-60 weddings next year.

I hope this was just a couple of pictures which happen to have been taken at a wedding rather than the images shot by the main wedding photographer? Although I guess the "was the bride and groom happy with them?/thats all that matters comes into place" If I got these back from my wedding I think I would have cried - if I got these back from a shoot where I had went to the bother of putting a dress on I probably would have cried. Have a good look around what other wedding photographers are doing - These are just randomly picked out because I know the photographers - http://www.lovegroveweddings.com http://www.gloucesterphotographer.com http://creativeweddingduo.com http://www.gordonmcgowan.co.uk My wedding photographer was - http://johnbaikiephotography.com Granted they will not all be within the budget of all wedding partners however all wedding photographers should strive to create crisp/clean images like the above. Yes people will pay for badly edited crap but it really should be a crime for people to charge money to do stuff like that. For me - I wanted somebody who could capture the moments well as well as do pretty funky "set up" shots. I got what I paid for and was overjoyed.
