Took this one a couple of weeks ago on Cape Cod. We go to the beaches in the evening to avoid crowds, the sun was setting in a couple hours and really helped bring out her hair color.

Nicely exposed shot, but it looks kinda snapshotish to me.

Perhaps if she were facing the sun, and if you shot from a lower angle so the horizon was lower in the frame and the people in the background were framed out? Also, try setting your white balance to cloudy or shade to make it warmer.

I agree with Tiberius, get a little lower face the light, take a reflector for fill, you did plan it, have you any more.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions!

Tiberius: It is kinda snapshotish. I just bought the camera, T1i with a kit lens, so I'm just fooling around with it and taking pictures of random things in different situations trying to figure out setting.
I see what you mean by getting down a little lower, she is shy of 5' and I'm just over 6'.

ukcyberboy: There was nothing used to bounce light anywhere not even a flash. I don't own any accessories yet.

A simple piece of foam board will start off for you. It can be used to bounce/direct light onto face esp. eyes to lighten soften the shadows but I would take everything said and take the chance to go back and do it again.
Keep it coming because you knew to place her there.
