2017 Portrait Series - Early Morning Portraits


There are two "golden hours" in the day, and before I only paid attention to one of them but that has finally changed!

Bekah and I met at 6:30 AM in order to try and take advantage of the beautiful light you can find just after sunrise. I was personally very pleased with the results, and despite my usual protests to getting up early I think I will be doing it much more often in the future. We took these photos at a local farm with a rather basic kit of an 85mm and 50mm lens (some of my favorites for portraits).

As a side benefit to the beautiful light, after we were done with the shoot it was time for breakfast!

How early would you(or already) get up for photos?
