Golden Hour

The Golden Hour: Kerry Paradis favorite time to shoot

The Golden Hour is often considered the most magical time of day for capturing stunning visuals. Whether shooting weddings, family portraits, or landscapes, this time just after sunrise or before sunset offers a soft, warm quality of light that adds a special touch to photos.

During the Golden Hour, the sun sits low in the sky, creating long shadows and a beautiful golden glow. This softer, more diffused light is much more flattering than the harsh, direct sunlight found at midday. Colors appear warmer, skin tones look radiant, and the overall atmosphere of the photos is imbued with a sense of warmth and magic.

For wedding, the Golden Hour is especially coveted for capturing romantic moments between newlyweds. The soft, golden light adds a dreamy quality to photos, enhancing the love and joy shared by the couple. In family portraits, this time of day can create a warm and inviting atmosphere, perfect for capturing the special bond between family members.

I often plan my shoots around the Golden Hour, scheduling outdoor sessions either in the early morning or late afternoon to take advantage of this magical light. Those who have experienced the beauty of the Golden Hour understand why it is my favorite time to shoot, as it elevates photos from ordinary to extraordinary with its warm, ethereal glow.

So next time you have a photo shoot planned, consider taking advantage of the Golden Hour to capture images that are truly breathtaking and unforgettable. #KerryParadisPhotography #WeddingPhotographer #Wedding #FamilyPhotographer #SeniorPortraits #HarfordCountyPhotographer
