Trust me when I say, there are few things in life that have gotten me awake before 4 AM. Yet, somehow I managed to make it up to Highland Park by 4:30 AM and in many ways I kind of loved it?? It was nice to be on the run during that time of day and it was super peaceful. Not to mention, I got to spend the sunrise with these two sweethearts. Olivia + Lonnie were much more used to this time of day than I was and they managed to look absolutely stunning!! Also, I love when I get to a shoot and find out that I have mutual friends in common with my couples! Turns out Olivia went to high school with one of my coworkers! Here are a few sunrise favorites!
