    Hey Timothy, a really cool shot here, I love the balance of vignetting and background visibility, combined with the color balancing of the subjects and background as well. Nicely done!

    I feel like the backlight should have been a bit dimmer, it’s almost overpowering in this situation. Also, it had been a little bit higher, it might have been able to catch more of the top of their heads too. If higher isn’t possible, pushing it further back and zooming the flash head in would definitely be the way to go. Actually I might go that route first!

    I almost always put the guy’s arms inside the girls, because it can help slim arms down.

    When I try to zoom in, I can’t tell if focus was nailed or not, (the image isn’t high-res enough) and I also feel like her eyes might be blinking slightly. When they’re that close, either have them close their eyes all the way, (my preference) …or if they insist on looking into each other’s eyes, have them look at each other’s eyelids actually, it helps open eyes up a bit more especially when they’re getting tired after a long wedding day!
