Golden hour engagement photos are always what I strive for when scheduling my engagement sessions in Carmel, Indiana. The best light of the day is during “Golden Hour,” which happens during the final hour before sunset. It is a photographer’s dream because the sun casts a heavenly glow and creates an enchanting halo around the subject of the photographs.
When I met up with Megan and Corey for their engagement session, we timed it perfectly and soaked up every ray of sunshine. The only thing warmer than the setting sun was Corey and Megan’s embrace.
Megan and Corey aren’t the only ones smooching in these images! Can you see how the buttery light is gently kissing the outline of their bodies? Megan’s hair and dress look entirely ethereal. It’s all due to the quality of light we had to work with. I also love how the angle of the sunlight hits the camera at just the right angle. It bounces around the lens and creates this alluring haze in the images. That is not an accident! This effect is something I purposely try to create while shooting engagement photos during golden hour. It’s is almost impossible to capture while shooting at any other time of day.
You are also perfectly set up to capture some truly gorgeous silhouette images at sunset when you take advantage of golden hour. I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t like a beautiful sunset! Luckily we are blessed with many stunning sunsets here in Carmel, Indiana. Pair that with a watery backdrop and you have engagement photography gold!
