Our clients were professional dancers who wanted their bridal dance to be special, with spectacular photos and so we decided to get the best possible pictures. At every wedding, the bridal dance is the most technically difficult part.

From the beginning, I saw the full moon in the background of the picture, and I realized that it was the best possible background for the photo.

The bride and the groom were moving a lot around the dance floor. I told my assistant to stay behind them to get the silhouette with the black background of the sky. My assistant’s flash had a Pocket Wizard, and was programmed at manual mode with 1/64 power.

Right behind me, there was a small white roof, so I bounced my flash over my camera to the roof to illuminate the couple.
For me it was a great challenge to get several incredible images of this dance and, at the same time, avoid the couple to be posing.
Finally, we were able to get the photos from the bridal dance that represented our clients, which is one of our principal objectives in all the weddings.
The wedding ceremony took place in the city of Elche, Alicante, Spain.
My camera was in manual mode, the flash in TTL -1.5 EV.
Camera Settings:
Nikon D4 1/250 s
f 3.2
ISO 2200
Pocket Wizards
The process is very simple, just LR5.

This was an image taken as the bride walked from the wedding car to the church for the wedding ceremony. It started to rain just as she arrived, and quickly the umbrellas came out.
