Setup? Is that just a reflector?

I used an umbrella and flash (1/8), no reflector. I thought I hadn't used the flash for this shot, but I did. Canon 6D with Sigma 35 Art and ND filter. Settings: 1/100, 1.4, ISO100. Thanks for asking!

Very hot day that cooled off nicely and let us take some nice couples shots without sweat running off noses.
These are shot with a single 580exII in a softbox at camera left using the 6d and 70-200II. Processing was done in the styles the couple told me they like, I prefer straight color such as #1 but they are very pleased with the variety.

I have never intentionally added flare, but this one was by request during an e-session with 135 L on 6D.

As far as editing tips for sun flair shots.

Usually when i take this type of shot i do it for the haze. It is easy to over do it and lose the persons face in the haze. I am loving the new dehaze feature in PS ACR and Lightroom allowing me to bring back the image a lot further than i thought possible.
I tend to work more with the blacks slider as well as reducing the highlights if there is any interest sky.

General C&C. The sky is pretty drab, but that is what you often get this time of year, so i would say good job on having the sun peak out around her head as well as getting some rim lighting.

I had one off camera flash so I'm guessing with more light I may have got more colors in the sky. Also it was slightly overcast so there wasn't much color. When you are looking to achieve this look is it optimal to have a super clear day with sunset colors.

A slower shutter would have given you more color in the sky. You will pick up more color, but you can only drop down to what ever shutter speed that you can hand hold your camera with any given lens. Perhaps 1/50 would have been a minimum for you, that would have given you -1 extra stop of light.

You have plenty of light with the one flash.

When using the sky as a background, i prefer to have clouds with some blue sky at sunset. It adds more interest. If it is a clear day, the color is so minimal that the shutter speed won't pick it up as much as i would like.

Wouldn't a slower shutter speed increase the ambient light resulting in more overexposure?
