What are the odds of that on a shoot?! Absolutely breathtaking, and not just the sunset.

Thanks. We actually stepped outside to shoot this photo which is looking towards the east when we saw the sunset.

I am so confused right now. I see her shadow on the ground which tells my brain that a light was used from behind...

But then I see that there was lighting used almost directly on her....

Please enlighten my stupidity.

Well, I thought that originally as well, but wouldn't her shadow be more to the right of the picture if that's the case? Idk, I've never been great with lighting. Trying to rectify that by lurking here.

I’m seeing the same thing since you said it. Perplexing. Didn’t initially notice it though.

I placed a light directly behind the couple as well as one in front of them, but off to the side.

Awesome, thanks for the education. I'm glad I was able to see the light behind them (I usually miss those)...didnt guess that the other was off to the side though. Good to know!

You're welcome. You can usually tell the direction of any lighting setup my looking at the shadows and highlights. Take a look at the second photo I posted and see if you can tell where I placed my light.

Behind you, to the right...I suspect...no second light anywhere that I can see.

Actually I used two lights. The main (key) light was in front of me, but off to the right. I used a 36" octabox diffuser. The second light was on my far left, just behind the planter you can barely see in the photo, with no diffuser but a grid to help contain light spill. It's providing the light you see on the back of the bride.
