Totally agree with this, the sun is coming from the far right of the pic, yet your light is coming from nearly dead on the subject. I think a more natural approach would have been to have your softbox or octabox whatever far left of your subject, match the sun then have 2 kickers. One camera straight for some fill. Left of camera to soften the shadows. IMO would work a lot better.
2 things. First, I had 7 minutes to get a few shots with the dog. I shot in TTL because of speed and that was with only 1 light. I sure wasn't going to set up 2 kickers. Dragging multiple stands, lights, sandbags around the property(by myself) wasn't happening as we were finishing up formals after the 1st look and needed to get to shooting the bridal party before guests arrived. Second, putting the strobe camera left would not have made it match the sun as the sun was coming across, from camera right. You can see I had the light camera right (shadow under her nose) but it was close to my right because of rocky/unflat ground along with the fact that the dog is dark and I knew if it was too far camera right he'd be WAY underexposed related to the couple. Again, didn't have the time to setup another light stand.
I appreciate your comment though.
