This styled session marked the perfect transition from a winter hibernation to the blossoming and reawakening of spring. While you might not have as much time for portraits on your wedding day in winter, this shoot is proof that golden hour is a thing at any time of year.
Golden Hour, a term cherished by many photographers, refers to that enchanting period shortly after sunrise or before sunset when the sun casts a warm, golden glow over everything it touches. This natural light creates a magical atmosphere, ideal for capturing intimate and dreamy moments.
These photographs were taken on a pleasantly warm August afternoon, overlooking the cliffs of Blanche Point in South Australia. Initially, the sun was still high, casting slightly harsher light. However, even during this time, the images radiate a special charm.
Blanche Point stands as a testament to nature’s grandeur. This coastal gem, situated just south of Adelaide, boasts rugged sandy cliffs that offer a breath-taking backdrop for any occasion. Overlooking the crystal blue expanse of Maslin’s and Willunga Beaches, Blanche Point is a haven for those seeking a touch of coastal magic in their images. This is a pretty hot spot during Saturday afternoons in the lead up to golden hour.
As the sun graces the horizon, the cliffs come alive with hues of gold, casting a mesmerising glow that some photographers can only dream of capturing. The interplay of light and shadow on this rugged landscape, coupled with the rhythmic sound of the waves, creates an atmosphere that’s nothing short of magical.
Choosing Blanche Point as a photography location means immersing yourself in a natural wonderland, where every frame tells a story of raw, unspoiled beauty. It’s a place where nature paints its own masterpiece, leaving you with memories that are as timeless as the cliffs themselves. So, if you’re in search of a South Australian location that marries rugged charm with coastal allure, Blanche Point is bound to steal your heart.
As you progress through the gallery, you’ll notice the golden glow intensifying as the sun nears the horizon. This is why I encourage couples to consider a brief sunset session on their wedding day. What sounds better than a chance to embrace each other amidst the ethereal radiance of golden hour.
For an even more unique touch, consider scheduling your ceremony later, allowing your portrait session as newlyweds to coincide perfectly with Golden Hour. This way, your ceremony photos will also carry a soft, golden hue, beautifully complementing your bridal portraits.
Planning your wedding is a journey in itself, and Golden Hour offers a touch of magic to elevate your portraits. Embrace the warmth, the glow, and the enchantment it brings to your special day. Explore the full gallery below and let the moments speak for themselves.
