Picture perfect lighting–explained

The most popular question our expert photographers face daily is, “What is the best time to have the photos taken?” This is a tough question because, what I prefer for lighting, you may have a differing preference on. So instead of suggesting the best time, we like to explain the variety of lighting options when it come to our photography services.

Bright Beach Photos: If you want the sky bright blue with the sunshine illuminating the Gulf of Mexico, we suggest an earlier appointment. These photos are breathtakingly colorful. Just keep in mind that if you have a baby, a light sensitive person, or if you want everyone dressed in pants, this may not be the time selection for you.

Evening Lit Photos: This is a great choice for many group sizes. Our professional photographers always suggest this time to large groups so we have enough time to capture all combinations within the sunset session. This lighting is a bit softer, making the sun less harsh so everyone can open their eyes when they say “Cheese!”

Pro Traveler Tip: Book your Panama City Beach sunset family portraits in advance to ensure you receive the lighting you prefer. Make sure to ask one of our specialists to assist with options and location suggestions!
