Chelsey + Chris | Sunrise Session | Gas Works Park

Once upon a time, I used to be a hard-core morning person. Like, I’d be awake and making myself a hot cup of black coffee and a spinach + cheese omelette at 6am (SIX-freakin’-AM!). Nowadays, I’ve purposefully changed my sleep schedule so that I’m more of a night-owl (mostly to match the schedules of my peers in college) and I’ve never looked back. You couldn’t pay me enough to get me out of bed before the sun rises for any other reason, unless of course, we are chasing my FAVORITE golden, dreamy light for photos with a really cool couple like Chelsey + Chris!

I have to take a moment to applaud Chelsey + Chris for not only waking up and getting dressed up for their photos so early in the morning, but also for being such troopers because this morning was FREEZING. Poor Chelsey’s shoes were open-toed and we had to cover her feet with jackets in between photos and I was still able to capture how much love these two have for each other. Both Chelsey + Chris are hilarious and Michael and I easily became friends with them. Although I’m not a morning person anymore, Michael and I had an enjoyable sunrise session and can’t wait to do another shoot with this adorable couple <3

    Since I got married, I am no longer a morning person, cuddling is way more important.
    But you sure do get great photos with that dreamy morning light!
