The ‘Golden Hour’

So you want to learn about golden hour, huh? It’s a pretty popular time of day for photographers to shoot. I will tell you what it is and why I prefer this time of day to others.

 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.

The perks:

  • 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.

I can also get some sweet silhouette shots as the sun is going down on the horizon
