I don’t know about you, but there’s just nothing more romantic or dreamier than golden hour wedding portraits! The way the sun sets in the background and the ambience that golden hour creates is just incomparable and really just adds that extra touch to your photos! That’s why I was so happy when Emily and Dusty set time aside specifically for golden hour wedding portraits! They had the most beautiful and rustic wedding at Morgan Ranch in Cathey’s Valley, CA. This location really offers such an epic sunset!
First and foremost, golden hour is arguably the best time for your portraits! Golden hour creates such soft and romantic lighting and really just adds so much warmth to your portraits. Aside from that, it also gives you and your spouse some private time together before the rush of your reception! Dusty and Emily had time to themselves to soak in that newly married feeling. And maybe you’re thinking it will take up a lot of time from your reception and visiting. It does not! We were able to capture these beautiful golden hour wedding portraits within just 20 minutes! So truly, setting those 15-20 minutes of time aside specifically for some golden hour wedding portraits is worth it!
After we finished with Emily and Dusty’s portraits, they got to head into the reception and have the best time celebrating their new marriage with their closest friends and family, and we got some epic sunset portraits just from that short time during golden hour! What a win-win in my book!
“I highly recommend Jessica!!! Although our wedding isn’t until Sept, we’ve had our engagement shoot with her already and she’s so much fun to work with. We had unfavorable weather and she totally worked with it and made my doubts of the weather turn into magical photos! Very easy going, makes you comfortable, offers great packages, and is so so helpful in the planning process of wedding timelines. One of my best friends just got engaged and immediately booked Jessica as her photographer for next April. Couldn’t recommend her enough! We’re so excited for our big day.”
