If we lived in California, or even on the other side of Lake Michigan then getting those sunset images over the ocean or lake would all be done in the evening. However in Chicago, if you want to capture photos that appear with the sun nice and low over a body of water…then you’re going to be waking up nice and early to catch the sunrise at 5am. When I spoke with John and Joanne, about their engagement photos…one of the first things that came up was doing the shoot on the lakefront. So with a nice 4am alarm clock I was off to the beach! As soon as we started you would never know that we were all running on just a few hours of sleep each and they were posing in no time!
