Hold me in the Cloud of Love

One of my favorite things to do on a wedding day is to capture a silhouette of the couple with a layer of smoke (ie. smoke grenade). I placed an alien bee strobe behind the bride & groom to over emphasize the backlighting while my 2nd photographer danced around the couple with the smoke grenade.

What I was planning for and worked perfectly was the light pouring through the gate which created the rays through the smoke.

I think I was more excited then the couple about this photo!

I imagine your excitement ! This is a stunning picture ! Great symmetry, nice smoke effect, and I like the fact you didn't try to recover the shadows too much

Thank you Thomas! A lot of work went into the photo and it came out exactly how I wanted to!
