So you want to learn about golden hour, huh? It’s a pretty popular time of day for photographers to shoot. I’ll tell you what it is and why I prefer this time of day to others.
You may or may not have noticed that all of my open availability for sessions is in the evening before sunset. I do have some daytime sessions available, but I 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 get yummy light flares and beautiful soft light.
· There are no soft shadows or squinty eyes from the blinding sun at high noon.
· 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.
· During Golden Hour, everything is warm and pretty and gives off a magical feeling.
We can also get some sweet silhouette shots as the sun is going down on the horizon. So as you can see, that is why I choose evening photoshoots to capture your magical moments!
