Sunset engagements sessions are oh-so-popular, but what about a sunrise sesh? It's the forgotten one of the two, but after seeing this sweet shoot from Jacqui Cole Photography I'm thinking it might make a comeback. Because the images sitting in this gallery couldn't be more stunning, and you can see every last one right here.

From Jacqui Cole Photography...Strolling down Oak Street beach at 5am on a gorgeous summer's morning Deidre, Ben and I captured their beautiful love in front of Lake Michigan. We opted for a soft, romantic and casual beach look to watch the sunrise and continue to head into the city for a more chic and elegant feel. Deidre and Ben instantly warmed up to the camera and were so natural in each others embrace. We wiped the sand off our feet and enjoyed the empty streets of Michigan Avenue, stopping at the Drake Hotel and Watertower Place.

Deidre and Ben met while at Ohio State University and continue their relationship long distance while Ben lives in Boston (hoping to come to Chicago very soon!) I am sure that part of the magic of this engagement session is the limited time this couple have to share and their inspiring outlook that they appreciate every minute they have together.

Deidre and Ben are a beautiful example of a stunning saying:Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and fans the bonfire
