3) Shooting During Golden Hour
I just love all the colors of a California sunset. The periwinkle blues, candy pink, and soft purples. It definitely sets a mood for romance, with soft lighting and a warm glow. Golden Hour is my preferred time for natural light portrait sessions. To capture this kind of lighting, you will want to end your session right at sunset or start 15-20 minutes before the sun rises.
