Most graduates tend to take their graduation photos during golden hour. When I scheduled this University of California Riverside graduation session with Ashley, we had also planned to take them during golden hour. However, because of some scheduling conflicts as a result of curfews in Los Angeles and Riverside we had to do a morning shoot instead.
Thankfully, the morning lighting at this university was actually really great for graduation photos! The lighting was especially great for this little patch of grass with a purple tree in it. I noticed the area a day before during a golden hour shoot at UCR, but it looked much better for photos in the morning with sun directly behind it.
Here are some of my favorites from this session:
