Nice shots. St Augustine is a city made for the 17-40.
I just shot a large 50th birthday bash with almost the exact same setup. Went very well. Look forward to doing it again.

Went a different direction recently with portrait and lighting in general, trying other approaches. For the 4th of July we went to St Augustine, Florida for a few days to enjoy the beautiful city and the beautiful beach. Instead of lugging around big lenses, needing lots of distance and using a big strobe with big modifiers, I went with a single lens, ultrawide, a single speedlite, a hand-held boom with a reflector and planned to do ultrawide angle environmental shots with off-camera ETTL at synch speed doing the lighting work.

Our daughter was our little model running around (she's 3.5 years old right now) and my wife held the flash where directed just slightly out of view. The point was to enjoy capturing the environment, dramatically light up our daughter in that environment, challenge myself with full depth of field (so had to pay attention to all detail, no blurry backgrounds to hide stuff) and have memories of where we were. Since I was going to use ultrawide angle, I could get very, very close to the subject and location and that also meant the speedlite could be held pretty close too, so even in full sun we were able to light things up as fill or key level. The YN685 did a great job, and the YN622-TX with remote control over +/- EV changes worked excellent. I used a 5.5" reflector as my modifier instead of a beauty dish because of size and because of distance to subject; and it did increase output and limit spread compared to bare flash, so it did what I needed it to do (before going I questioned taking a beauty dish but didn't want to carry it around). Simple, portable, small setup, that can handle deep shadows in bright sun. ETTL was accurate and did what it was told, which was a nice change of pace and really easy on our daughter. She made it easy being such a ham! We had a lot of fun, no down time, she was able to play and enjoy the environment and I didn't stroke out in the process, hah.

Learned a lot.

Setup:

Canon 5Dc + 17-40L (shot almost entirely at 17mm) | TV mode at 1/200s, ISO 100~200, variable aperture
Yongnuo YN622-TX | Adjusted EV for fill or key as needed remotely

Yongnuo YN685
Godox S-bracket (Bowens)
Godox 5.5" reflector | I found this almost increased output by a stop of light, while controlling spread, which I wanted for efficiency, while being small
Flashpoint Speedpod | Inexpensive telescoping hand-held lighting stand

I like your lighting assistant. Looks helpful.

Just got it used from a friend. Nice and small to get low, but extends enough for the assistant to get it up high.

I highly suggest keeping the light modifier(s) closer to your subject to get a softer look.
Remember, the bigger the light source, the softer the light.
By putting your light source closer to your subject, makes the light much softer.

Is that really true that putting "your light source closer to your subject, makes the light much softer"? I thought it was the opposite.

Closer is softer just as larger modifier is softer

But your image is clean and well executed. Nothing wrong with it or hard lighting when done right and you have it right.

Yes it's true. But remember, as you move the light source closer, the apparent intensity (brightness) increases. So, you would need to turn down the power on your light.
