The layers of lighting in this image add a gripping sense of depth and intimacy. Soft orange spheres of bokeh dance in the foreground, while tiny droplets of rain are frozen in the background by a pop of flash from behind the couple. In addition to rim lighting that pops them out of the dark background, the flash wraps around the couple just enough to reveal their sweet smiles.
