THE GOLDEN HOUR : WHY I PREFER TO SCHEDULE OUTDOOR SESSIONS AROUND SUNSET17  Jun 2015         Jessica Ratty


The magical Golden Hour, where the light is like gorgeous liquid gold and everything is so sweet and romantic! It’s a pretty popular time of day for photographers to shoot. We’ll tell you what it is and why we prefer this time of day to others.

Many people assume that a super sunny day is perfect for photos and the bright Sun is ideal shooting conditions... 90% of the time, this is incorrect. A photographers ideal outdoor lighting conditions is either an overcast day or shooting at sunset.. during the Golden Hour.

You may or may not have noticed that all of our open availability for outdoor portrait sessions is in the evening before sunset. 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.


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.
-  We can also get some sweet silhouette shots as the sun is going down on the horizon. And some more moody, romantic images as the sun disappears.
