    Full sun is so tough because the colors and contrast and shadows and highlights are so hard to manage. I feel the sky is too blue and I would tone down the yellows in the grass too to make it more believable. Maybe toning down the saturation slider would do the trick. It looks like you could have lowered the ISO and/or had an even faster shutter speed (although it’s so fast already… what a sunny day!) In crazy sun like this, I have found underexposing and then brightening in post helps to preserve the highlights, like in the clouds (which are not necessarily the most important highlight to preserve but are crazy blown IMO in this image.) You did a great job of preserving her dress by having her facing away from the sun and groom blocking her.  

    I think this pose and the placement on the building are so fun!

    What was the white balance? Curious to know about the blue sky (post production or something with the WB?)  I really like the Creativity of the photo, clarity, and colors. I agree about the lawn being a little too bright

      White Balance was set to Auto.  I live under the Big Sky in Montana!  Due to the elevation and weather, the sky is almost always that deep blue color!  I’m sure it was enhanced in post but not so that it looked overdone to me.  I can tone it down though.

    It’s a fantastic image but I think if you retained the shadows of the building in the background and pulled back on the blues in the sky, it would have more of a natural feel.

    Right now you can tell it was tweaked a bit too much and it takes away from how fantastic your composition was to begin with.

    Eyes go to the brightest parts of an image and the most saturated.  The first thing I notice and kept looking at is the sky.  If you tone down the sky and the background a bit, i’d be more focused on the couple in front.
