Engagement Sessions Start Times by Season

Every season has different times to start your engagement session start. We love shooting at sunset, it is the most gorgeous time. Of course, we will shoot anytime for you but here is an outline and approximate start time for engagement sessions by season

– Winter (December – March) 3pm – 5pm During December through mid March you can plan on your engagement session taking place around 3-5 pm. However, the time will change in mid march and so that will make the start time one hour later.

– Summer (Jun – Aug) 6:30pm-8:30pm Summer engagement just like all engagements, take place two house before sunset. This will hopefully mean that the shot will be during the cooler part of the day.

– Spring (April – May) The time varies, the sunset time drastically changes throughout the course of these two months and so our shooting times change as well. You can plan on approximately 5:30 – 7:30 in April and 6:00 – 8:00 in May.

– Fall (Sept – Nov) The time varies, the sunset time drastically changes during these three months. In September you can plan on 5:30 – 7:30 until the third week and then you can plan on 5:00 – 7:00 until mid October, after the first week of November you can plan on 3:00 – 5:00PM
