An explanation of the different times you should consider for your photo session!



helping brides veil in the Golden Light of Lake BledThe Golden Hour

This is the time where the sun starts to peak above the skyline in the morning or just before sunset. The fall months are especially breathtaking as the warmth of the sun hitting the Vltava river sends up gorgeous fog like conditions that create ethereal streaks of light that creates its own patterns. An example is this stunning portrait of our very elegantly dressed couple from Japan, photographed at Lake Bled in Slovenia during the Golden Hour.


The benefits of having a Golden Hour Session

  • incredible Golden Light that creates warmth and contrasty conditions that photographers love to work with
  • picture perfect for very close and intimate images of sexy couples
  • wonderful opportunity for creative lighting such as lens flare, sun flare and even silhouettes
  • of course there are some drawbacks: getting up and being prepared in time for the sunrise & shortly afterwards the Golden Light Hour. This is usually not a problem for our couples from Asia who are still on their home time zones).
  • Or you can opt to capture this timeline during the late afternoon before sunset. The drawback, many tourists cluttering up your backgrounds.





The Sunset or Sunrise

That amazing period when daytime turns to night or for those early risers when night time turns to day. Visually this is one of the most beautiful and creative time periods to capture and create dramatic portraits. As the sun sets behind Prague Castle it can surprise us with an incredible array of colors that look spectacular. Or vice versa, such as this image of our very sexy couple from Hong Kong captured on the Charles Bridge before sunrise. Please note that this image is not possible without the use of flash (which was set up behind the couple and also in front to create this gorgeous portrait of Hebe & Pierre).

  • perfect for creative & dramatic images capturing the sky as it flares.
  • unless all of your images are silhouettes a lighting crew is the only way to truly create and capture stunning images.
  • of course there are some drawbacks: getting up and being prepared in time for the sunrise & shortly afterwards the Golden Light Hour. This is usually not a problem for our couples from Asia who are still on their home time zones).
  • Or you can opt to capture this timeline during the late afternoon before sunset. The drawback, many tourists cluttering up your backgrounds.



Evening (twilight) - Blue Hourromantic artistic image couple Charles Bridge night

The period when the day is ending and the night is beginning (or the reverse pre-dawn before sunrise).

  • magical, beautiful, romantic & incredible are how couples view their images captured during this time period.
  • with the softness of the light their is no harsh lighting to cause unwanted and unflattering shadows. An ideal time for creating luxurious (and lit) portraits that will impress and amaze with their rich colors.
  • if captured before sunrise there are usually very few people out and we are able to capture more styles.
  • the drawback if photographed at night more people are out and can be visible in your backgrounds.
  • as we do many split sessions our bookings are limited to one couple per day
  • these images are more art directed due to setting up lights and the pace is slower. Usually the best time to capture these sessions are pre dawn.





Night TimePetit Palais Paris wedding couple celebrating night

  • The time of day where the atmosphere of the city feels most alive and fun.
  • intimacy in beautiful historic locations such as Prague Castle at night is something our clients still rave about many years later.
  • the best time for us to create truly unique and creative artistic and art directed portraits.
  • the later start times means it is easier to commission hair & makeup services and lighting crews.
  • the drawbacks: these time frames fill up very quickly as we do many split sessions so our bookings are quite limited. As we work with a lighting crew these images are more art directed since we are setting up lights and the pace is slower than a natural light session
  • another drawback: many tourists are also out and about. As such we will focus on locations where we can try to reduce them in our backgrounds such as Prague Castle or other locations after consulting with you about your wishes and desires.
  • pictured our very sweet couple from Japan who had a night time pre wedding portrait session in Paris at the Petit Palais
