EMBRACE THE CLOUDY SKIES | GOLDEN LIGHT | LIFESTYLE + ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER| AUSTIN TEXAS

I just LOVE overcast days! It’s taken me years to feel this way. When I first started I thought mid-day, harsh light was the best. Why not right, it was super bright outside which was what I needed to photograph people right? So so wrong! Not that shooting in harsh light is wrong by any means because I have some truly amazing fellow photographer friends who shoot in harsh light and totally ROCK IT!! I personally choose to shoot during the golden hours which is morning and evening! Evening provides those beautiful warm golden tones whereas mornings tend to have cooler and bluer tones.

Now cloudy skies are truly magical! I love the highlights I capture when we have cloudy skies or overcast days. Check out that sky y’all!  Even this sky adds mood into the image.

I have so many photographers ask me if I use sky Overlays. I used to use sky Overlays all the time y’all I was one of those sky overlay junkies that had a file full of Overlays to choose from! I then created my own sky Overlays called “Texas Skies” which I still sell currently. Fifteen Texas Sky Overlays including moody clouds, cotton candy sunsets and Texas storm skies for $30. You can purchase these by request at hello@wanderlustsoulsphotography.com
