Why I prefer to schedule sessions around sunset

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

You may or may not have noticed that I tend to schedule sessions is in the evening before sunset. I do have some daytime sessions available, but prefer to shoot in the hours leading up to sunset. This is called the ‘Golden Hour.’ During this time, the lighting is absolutely beautiful.

The perks:

  • You get beautiful light flares and beautiful soft light.
  • There are no harsh 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 romantic feeling.
  • We can also get some sweet silhouette shots as the sun is going down on the horizon.
