Hello Johnny,a very pleasant portrait with excellent model that is well made up.
I might have preferred just one hand,a nice shot. Best regards Les.

1/60 of a second is at time tricky, the model really has to freeze, and if hand held...you've got to be still too to avoid camera mouvement...but it's certainly not a problem here...tho to be on the safe side, I would encourage a faster shutter speed...

But aside to this...I have to say this is a superb portrait in many ways.

Sharp as it can be, the focus is right on the eyes of the model, it jumps at you.

Great pose, and framing. The expression seems sincere, naturel, very elegant, with an impression of softness in her eyes.

The hands are relaxe, some parts slighly soft (focus) complimenting the image very well. The make up is so well done, a little piece of art on it's own. The veil, jewelry, make up...everything is so well coordinateed.

Exposure is so right, good strong dark tones, and highlights revealing great details, not to hot, yet very luminous. Colors balance is right too...no color cast here, beautifull naturel and real skin tones.

This is pro work my friend, flawless images, if that can be.....definitly portfolio materiel.

Real interested to see what you'll come up with next.

This is EXCELLENT work, and you should be prood of it. I would.

very well taken portrait of a beautiful lady.
nice emotion on her eyes.

A very well done portrait with exceelent skin tones and detail. The lighting is spot on and your model (fiance) also does very well with penatrating eye contact with the camera.
Supurb work!
