#2 on this page where the bride is standing on a deck.
Hi for the shot on the left I had a 430exii off camera right and pointed straight at the subject (head) at 1/32th for fill. It was just bare bulb. Same with all my shots to be honest. I did bring a small softbox but didn't end up using it. Same with the shot on the right with her against the white wall.
43exii pointed backwards and to the right for extra fill.
For 95% of the location shoot at this wedding I used a 430exii off camera bare for extra fill. Its normally around 1/32th - 1/16th power.

Can I ask how you handle the photobooth? 2nd shooter did it whil you captured everything else? Only avaliable form 7-8 pm? Do you ever make any money on those shots? BTW I like all your ahots.
Sometimes I do have a 2nd shooter which will capture it but for this wedding I didn't have one. Most of the time I tend to do the photo-booth right after the first dance and during the main dancing. I would have 2nd shooter for this instance so that way I can still capture the dancing shots.
I tend to do it later into the night as everyone by then is a little tipsy and loose.
But for this wedding they didnt have a first dance and was quite a relaxed wedding so had plenty of time to do the photo-booth on my own. I normally let it run for 30mins max and only take up to 4 shots of the guests. No point taking 10-20 images of the same people. This way no one is waiting around for too long.
I don't use a tripod as its hard to capture it all properly as people tend to jump or bend down etc etc. Also only just use one light (beauty dish).
I do charge extra for photobooth as I bring my backdrop/lights etc. So yup I do make money from it. Its also extra processing time so definitely charge for it.
