Regardless of the location, one of the most important factors that will affect the quality of your engagement photography session is selecting a time of day.
Selecting a Time of Day
In addition to picking a great location for your engagement shoot, selecting the best time of day for shooting can make all the difference between an okay shot and a spectacular one. If there is one thing that photographers need to help capture a great image, that is beautiful quality light. You can be in a stunning location, but if it lacks good quality lighting, your pictures could turn out looking flat, dull, and uninspiring.
The best time for engagement photos is either early in the morning or later in the evening, referred to by photographers as the Golden Hour. The light during this time is soft, warm, and simply magical. It is very important to arrive at your engagement session on time so that you can take advantage of this beautiful light. Once the light is gone, it’s gone.
