These golden hour shots from an engagement session at the Finch Arboretum in Spokane are simplistic perfection! You may hear photographers talk about the ‘golden hour’ all the time, but aren’t quite sure what it even is. So, let us explain! The golden hour is typically referred to as the time right before sunset, or after sunrise, when the sun is lower in the sky, resulting in perfectly beautiful, dreamy, golden light that just so happens to be prime for spectacular photos! Because of this, photographers love to shoot during these prime hours, and the results are always totally worthwhile! Today’s adorable shoot is no exception.
If you’re struggling with where to have your engagement photos taken, don’t underestimate the beauty of places you likely pass by, or spend time at, frequently. You’d be surprised at how lovely they can look through the lens of a camera, when you may not have even given them a second thought! Shooting at such places also has the added benefit of being somewhere you’re already comfortable with, and likely has history for you and your partner, which translates on camera. If all else fails, ask your photographer where they love to shoot– they may have some fun ideas as well!
