Phenomenal image. Truly outstanding. Well done!

This is a great image but I want to know how you got all of them to jump in unison, I've tried this with 4 or 5 and there is always one or two on the ground while the rest are in the air. Nicely done.

Behind The Lens

This image was taken in Oklahoma where we have the most beautiful skies and sunsets.
I enjoy incorporating silhouettes into client galleries and take them often of my own children. This image was shot right at sunset.
I love that it looks as if the sky is on fire in this image. Beautiful light can make an image more powerful while enhancing the overall feel. If I would have taken this image any later, I would have missed my opportunity to create something fun and different for my client.
Nikon D700, 35mm f/1.4
I was confident that I got all of the important images and wanted to get creative before heading inside. I asked the wedding party if they would all jump as high as they could for a shot and they were all in. They were a fun wedding party and were happy to do it. I was impressed with the height of their jumps!
I straightened then added contrast and saturation.
In my camera bag
I'm a Nikon girl. I have a D700, D800, and a D850. My go to lenses are 14-24mm, 24mm tilt, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 105mm, and 70-200.
My advice would be to play around with silhouettes because they are neat and different yet simple to capture. I like to choose a hill or area that doesn't have anything behind my subject. I lay on my tummy and shoot up. I typically set my aperture anywhere between f/5 - f/11 depending on available light. I then meter off of the sky while making sure my shutter speed is fast enough to freeze the motion (if this is what I am going for). I will adjust my ISO accordingly after those steps. Silhouettes are great to capture after you have gotten all of the must-have shots taken care of. They are fun to end with and bring variety to a gallery.
