Each year, I find that my clients become more willing to try something new. I often suggest sunrise and sunset as options for engagement sessions, but Sarah and Alex were one of the first couples to actually take me up on the challenge of waking up before dawn. I was especially excited that their fall session coincided with a nearly-full moon that was setting just as the sun was rising. These two braved freezing morning temperatures to help me capture their love in these photos on Northwestern University’s campus in Evanston. Here’s to hoping for equally gorgeous skies for their Chicago wedding next April!
