Why I love to schedule photo shoots around sunset!
Wondering about golden hour? It’s a pretty popular time of day for photographers to shoot. I’ll tell you what it is and why I love this time of day for photo sessions.
You may or may not have noticed that I typically set up sessions in the late afternoon or evening before sunset. I do have some daytime sessions available, but I prefer to shoot in the hours leading up to sunset. The 30 minutes before and after sunset is called the Golden Hour. During this time, the lighting is absolutely perfect.
You get yummy light flares, vibrant colors, and beautiful soft light.
There are no hard shadows or squinty eyes from the blinding sun at high noon.
In the summer, the weather isn’t as 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.
