Golden Hour Backlight

Shari Photography-  Back light.
Golden hour is 1 hour before sunrise or or sunset.  The light is perfect.  Anytime you can photograph during this time-  do it!  The light is exceptional and well worth the effort because your images will look incredible. 
There is a lovely golden hue to the images.  This is especially true if you can back light with the sun.  Also, there is a softness to the light that creates a spectacular effect on the skin tones  Shadows also can play a role in the composition in a way that adds a third dimension.
I always try to plan my couples portraits during this time.
