What is the golden hour?
It is about an hour before sunset and it is (almost) every photographers favorite time to photograph clients.
The sun is not as bright.
The clients won’t have to squint and the sun emits the most beautiful golden colors.
It lights up tall grass.
It glistens through leaves.
It is just SO dreamy!
It doesn’t last very long and can be difficult to catch which is why it’s so beloved.
It doesn’t happen every night but if it’s a clear sky, your chances are pretty good.
Here’s an example of a session that I was able to capture during the golden hour.
