Those god rays, thought! Nice work, I love how the couple are still the focus of the shot and are not drained by the light. A lot of post work?

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in a forest where I live.
Time
I shot this around 15:00 after being at the first location. I had the the couple for 2 hrs, so I planned it so that we got lucky with the position of the sun.
Lighting
The overhead sun did cast some light from above and from behind. I used two godox ad 360 to sett the light. One from the left side and one from the front right side. It was a bit windy, so the groom and bidesmates had to help me holding the lights.
Equipment
Canon 5dsr with a canon 16 - 35 2,8 L pluss the speedlights. I took my second shooter's camera as I did not have the time to switch lenses. I had a macro on my second camera and a 70 - 200 on my primary.
Inspiration
The bride wanted a picture that was untraditional. She wanted the tretops to be in on the shot. She also wanted sunrays. So I went down low, which I did not plan to do.
Editing
The sunrays are fake. I was not able to capture natural rays. So I went over the edge, but the bride absolutely loved it.
In my camera bag
A canon 6d and sometimes i bring my 60D. My 16 - 35 is always with me along with my Lee filters. Other than that I carry a 70 - 200 2,8 ii L. And when I need to a 24 - 105 L and a samyang 14mm 2,8 for night time shots. The remote is always in my bag and I always carry a tripod.
Feedback
Plan the location... check how the light are at the time of day you are shooting there. As for the rest... This was my first time trying this. So had to search for some turtorials on how to get the effects.
