This photo was taken on July 20th at 4:14pm. The sun was still fairly high in the sky, but it was behind the church, we were shooting on the east side.
I selected f/6.3 because I had many eyes looking at the camera and it was important that they were all in focus. Using a single focus point, I focused on the bride because she was in the middle row. If I focused on the bridesmaids in the front, or in the back, I probably would not have had enough depth of field for everyone to be in focus.
Below is the original and edited versions. All adjustments were accomplished in Lightroom.
