We'll usually gobo the back flash or move it off-axis enough so that it won't flare. We feather the main light across the front of the subjects, and voila! This is the resulting image: In this case, we were shooting at Stonebridge Manor, a Wedding/Reception venue in Mesa, AZ - one of the nicer venues in the Phoenix...
