The ‘Golden Hour’

So you want to to know when the best time for those gorgeous hazy, dreamy photos are. It is golden hour and it is awesome! We’ll tell you what it is and why we prefer this time of day to others.

You may or may not have noticed that all of our open availability for sessions is in the evening before sunset. At least that is when we try to schedule a majority of our sessions. We do have some daytime sessions available, but we prefer to shoot in the hours leading up to sunset. This is called the ‘Golden Hour.’ During this time, the lighting is absolutely perfect. You can get all kinds of looks and back lighting can be amazing.

The perks:

  1. You get yummy light flares and beautiful soft light.

  2. There are no soft shadows or squinty eyes from the blinding sun at high noon.

  3. In the summer, the weather isn’t too hot, so you’re able to relax a little better knowing there isn’t sweat running down your face or making stains on your shirt.

  4. During Golden Hour, everything is warm and pretty.

  5. We can also get some sweet silhouette shots as the sun is going down on the horizon
