This turned out to be a pretty awesome wedding. We barely got the outdoor ceremony in before the sky opened up, and we still managed to take this shot out on the pier in the rain. Special shout out to JakAHearts - fellow POTN member for shooting this wedding with me. I couldn't have done it without him, especially the above image. We basically took it together - total dual effort.

Great image, the exposure on the rain drops really makes it!

Always love these kind of shots. The background really adds to the whole feel too. Well done.

This is a gorgeous shot! I'm trying to get my head around how the lighting was done on this... I see a key on the left, an omni at the back which brightens up the umbrella and a few parts of the peer, cherry on top is the peer side lights used as kickers... complex and brilliant shot!

Great work here!!! I take it assistant was behind the couple with the umbrella and flash unit? More detail behind how you accomplished this would be great..

Well done!

Thanks everyone! This was actually shot with just one light. It looked like it had stopped raining, so my 2nd went out to set up some lights and I was to grab the couple and follow 10 min later. When we got out there it was raining kind of hard. We each took an umbrella and JakAHearts stood to my left holding a 580 and softbox. I shot 2 test shots which looked good, asked the groom to hold the umbrella a little higher, then shot one of them looking at the camera, one of them kissing and then we asked if he thought he could dip her with the umbrella...

Even though their umbrella is black, it apparently redirected enough light behind them to give separation from back light. I think they would have been game to shoot for a few more minutes, but what I had looked so good in the LCD, and I didn't want them to get soaked so I sent them back in.

Having an awesome 2nd just makes all the difference.
