I'm shooting a wedding in a few days where the bride is Indian (India-Indian, not Native American -Indian) and the groom is a pretty pale white guy (they're friends, so I can joke about his paleness). Here's a link to their engagement photo (not taken by me). The dichotomy in skin tone doesn't show up very well in that photo except in that her skin looks fairly normal but his is blown out. I was thinking that what I would try to do is to get the bride under a bit more direct light, have the flashes closer to her, etc. But otherwise, I wasn't sure if there were tips that folks have in handling this type of situation. Edit: Here are two other photos I found of them - first, second.
