The majority of engagement and portrait sessions are scheduled for an hour or two before sunset, and this image is the perfect example why. While I have the skills and equipment necessary to shoot at anytime during the day, if possible we want to shoot in the late evening for the best lighting scenario.
Pioneers Park is my most popular request for a shoot location, but for good reason. It's an absolutely gorgeous park with endless options. The park has areas or open prairie, ponds, forests, flowers and then views of sunset are incomparable.
Beyond the beautiful setting for photos there are also biking and hiking trails, the Pinewood Bowl amphitheater for concerts and musicals, and the Pioneers Park Nature Center. It's a great place to visit even if you aren't having photos taken.
