Nice shots! Was the flash off-camera? Did you use any umbrellas or diffusers? How about FEC? Not sure if you had to dial it down for fill only, or did you keep up the power due to the distance? I'm a noob at people photography, so trying to learn.
I used a single 600ex-rt off camera helf by my daughter. I use fill flash in manual mode because I find ettl gives me varied results (can be frustrating if you like control). For groups, I zoom my flash wide, and just use a hint of light (1/64 and lower) just to get some fill. I don't want to overpower that beautiful hair light.

Generous space above heads works well for me. I think it just showed that the photographer loved nature and gave attention to details of trees (just as much as people).
My favorite is #2
Thanks hhuy, my background is in landscapes, so I like to include my surroundings. It's kind of a waste if u go on location and don't use it right? Might as well just shoot in your backyard if you crop every shot tight.

I'm amazed at you using the 70-200 @200. I have to try that on my next family shoot. Great work!!

This is very nice work, the light is amazing, and very nice balance between flash and ambient. The tree does subtract from the subjects a bit, but it's very cool, I probably would have left it in as well.
I use the 70-200II for most of my portrait work, but I have to admit, I usually shoot much tighter than that. I will be trying this in the future.
Thanks Dave, glad u like it.
