One of the biggest changes about no longer working a 9 to 5 is no longer working a 9 to 5. We definitely have a usual set of hours that we work (read: all of them) but not always, and they definitely aren't set in stone. The only real constant is that I avoid getting out of bed super early as much as possible. I've spent 30 years not being a morning person (which is why I chose a career that has me working mostly second shift) and I have no intention of starting now. Having a kid that bounces out of bed like a sugared up cartoon squirrel at 6am every morning, and tornados his way into our room is starting to make me concerned about my ability to continue this, but I'm doing my best. All of that to say, when Mark and Kate called to schedule their engagement shoot and I looked at our calendar I knew it had to be a sunrise shoot. We didn't really have another choice. That was okay with me. I don't mind getting out of bed for a great couple. I felt terrible asking them to get up so early for us, but so honored when they said it was no problem.
When we arrived downtown after drinking ALL the coffee, we were SO thrilled to see how gorgeous the morning light was around Central Station. As much as we love soft evening light, nothing beats morning light! We planned to get there a few minutes early so we had just a minute to enjoy the light and pick the perfect place to get started before Mark and Kate arrived. When they got there they warned us they were "awkward" together, but they could not have been more wrong! We knew from our very first meeting that their affection for each other and their fun sense of humor would be magic on camera and we were totally right! We're so excited to share our favorites from their South Main session and can't wait for their wedding next year!
