One of the very first steps after finding your Austin engagement photographer is figuring out when is the best time to have your photographs taken? As Austin engagement photographers, we dedicate ourselves to helping couples plan their engagement session with ease. Each season is completely different in Austin, take a look and decide for yourself when is the best time for your Engagement session to take place.

Which season is best?

Even though it is super hot in Austin, we are big fans of summer engagement sessions! The sun sets pretty late during the summer in Austin, 8:30pm or later, so if you are wanting an evening session, expect to start it around 7pm for the best light. Most of the popular locations are full of tourists during the evening, so if there is a particular location you are wanting your engagement photos at in Austin, we strongly recommend starting your engagement session around sunrise.

With school still being in session, many parks and popular spots are still very empty.
