ARLINGTON, TX PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER - WHAT IS THE GOLDEN HOUR & WHY YOU WILL LOVE IT

Updated: May 14, 2019

So you want to learn about golden hour, huh? It's a pretty popular time of day for photographers to shoot.


You may or may not have noticed that all of my open availability for sessions is in the evening before sunset. 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 you face or making stains on your shirt

  • During Golden Hour, everything is warm and pretty and gives off a magical feeling

So next time you schedule a shoot, really consider making it around this wonderful Golden Hour. I promise it'll be worth it!
