That Golden Light

I encourage every couple to set aside time for portraits during the ‘golden hour’ of the day. The golden hour is that magical time around sunset, 30 minutes before it sets and 30 minutes after it’s gone down.

At this wedding, near Hood River, we had to hike way up a grassy hillside to catch the last of the light but it was worth it. There’s just something about the softness of the light when the sun is very low in the sky, especially during those long days of summer, that makes everything seem timeless and warm.

Allison and Josh were married at Mt Hood Organic Farm this past Saturday. Located 15 miles south of Hood River, the farm has a spectacular view of Mt Hood and is a great wedding venue.

I’m just now going through all the images in Lightroom and have picked out a few favorites for this post.
