Jon and Rachel were brave enough to get up for a sunrise session with us. I’m pretty sure most people think I’m crazy when I explain that for a sunrise session we’ll want to actually start just before the sun peeks over the horizon, which at this time of year is around 5:50 in the morning! It’s SO worth it though, because the light at that time in the morning is just glorious! These two also braved the heat and attack flies with us. Seriously, those green headed flies on the beach are jerks! They fly straight towards you just so they can bite you, and it hurts!
We loved exploring Lewes, Delaware with these two. Some of Rachel’s family lives in Lewes and she grew up visiting there often. It makes me so happy when we can photograph couples in a location that is meaningful to them. These two rocked their early morning beach session even despite the heat and killer flies! Seriously, they looked awesome for it being before 6am! I’m so glad we were able to spend more time with Jon and Rachel because they are the best! We can’t wait for their June wedding next year. Enjoy some of our favorites from this early morning shoot.
