The Most Romantic Time of the Year and You need to take advantage of it!
Jun 24, 2016 | By: Jina LaFary Photography
Ah…Summer has arrived in Kentucky, our most beloved time of year. As a photographer I know I can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the next 3 months will be filled with glorious sunny days and starlit evenings, which are my absolute faves! This is what we live for ( I do atleast)- after months of bitter cold winters temps we are finally ready to kick off the rain boots and trade them for sandals & flip flops! Kentucky comes to life during these summer months. People are smiling, pools are filled and there is a vibrancy to the landscape that you really can’t find anywhere else. Even though the days are hot, the evenings are the best part! humidity is low, the cool, fresh air tickles your nose and the golden sunsets are amazing. It’s no wonder that photographers live for these long days where we can still have dinner with our families and then head out to a gorgeous open field to shoot in the golden light. Ah yes, it’s finally here- another sensational Kentucky summer.
Getting out my camera during the golden hour is by far my favorite time to shoot. So what do you ask is “the golden hour”? Well, the golden hour (or magic hour) is typically defined as the hour after sunrise or the hour just before sunset. During these times the sun is low in the sky, producing a soft, diffused light which is much more flattering than the harsh midday sun that so many of us are used to shooting in. It creates a balance of soft colors and a warm, juicy glow that makes photographers squeal with delight (at least it does for me). That beautiful even light on your face, gorgeous catch-lights in your eyes, and that soft halo of light in your hair- all these come together for spectacular pictures. It’s no wonder that these are the most popular and sought after sessions during the summer months.
So I thought why not come up with a Summer Special geared around it!
