GOLDEN HOUR. In the photography world, there is a lot of talk about “golden hour”. For those that don’t know this is the hour after the sun rises or the hour before the sun sets. Photographers love it for a number of reasons – the light is all glowy, the colors are warm, and well for lack of a better word it just creates this golden effect. It also happens to be one of my favorite times of day to shoot. Also, in my opinion, golden hour tends to be elevated (no pun intended) in the mountains and in Utah we have just a few of those! The sun was ON POINT in this shoot and perfectly paralleled Ashley and Billy’s sunshiney, intimate love. They were definitely down to run and laugh and giggle, but you could tell they just loved snuggling in close to each other and it was the MOST adorable thing I have ever seen. These two squeezed in this shoot before their trip to Paris and I definitely had to keep myself from asking to jump in their suitcases. I am so happy for these lovebirds and feel thankful they chose me to document their love journey!
