I was taking some engagement photos a couple of weeks ago and when the couple went in to change, I snapped a few photos of the beauty around me. The sun was starting to set and the golden light was coming in through the trees making everything shine.
Some of my very favorite photos are backlit by evening sun. I love to catch that sparkle and the warm light it creates on my subject.
I knew when I shot this one it would end up being one of my favorites.
Another thing I love to do when the sun gets low is turn my subjects facing the setting sun. The perfect light light warms their skin and sometimes the sky puts on a lovely show too. That happened for me when I shot this photo of Ruthanne and her husband.
It’s why just before sunset is my favorite time to do sessions.
