I always tell my clients that I’m up for whatever they are. Last weekend, that included getting up at 4:30AM on Saturday so we could be on our way to North Ave Beach by 5:30AM for the 6:11AM sunrise. We made it out to the beach on time (despite a malfunctioning parking gate, thanks City of Chicago!), but unfortunately the sun never appeared. We did have a beautiful, still morning with no rain and no one to bother us except a few dogs and the occasional runner. I love being out before the city wakes up, it’s such a great time to make pictures. I can’t wait to photograph Katie & Brian’s wedding on a rooftop overlooking Wrigley Field later this year. With a 1:20PM start, it will be much easier to manage.
