Nice job overall -- you captured a lot of emotion and the flavor of the event.

My only critique would be related to the reception shots. Your shutter speed was obviously too slow to avoid motion blur. When shooting action in such low light settings with flash, you need to either shoot in Manual Mode with a shutter speed of at least 1/60 Sec -- or shoot in an auto mode with the slow flash shutter speed set to 1/60.

Slow shutter speed flash shots can be creative for a few images to portray motion, for example a few dance shots, but you don't want everything to have that effect.

Judging from the reception shots you were probably shooting slower than 1/15 second which will always result in ghosting and light streaks.

Regardless, you did a really nice job on everything else.

God Bless,

Thanks for the kind words, Daddyo, and thanks for the shutter speed lesson. However, concerning your phrase "Slow shutter speed flash shots can be creative for a few images to portray motion, for example a few dance shots, but you don't want everything to have that effect"... Well, yess, I dowant every picture of the evening to have that effect! It happens to be my trademark, as you can see in my gallery and on my website. And thankfully the couple had studied my website thouroughly, they knew exactly what kind of photographer they were hiring. Maybe you'll be relieved to hear that they were very happy with the results. 

Cheers,

Jeanette
