I can’t get enough of the sunrises in my life.  To me a sunrise is peaceful, quiet, and a new beginning.  Getting ahead of everyone else and watching the sun rise up as the warm rays hit your face.  Just after Thanksgiving this year we lucked out on a beautiful warm sunrise morning and Anthony & Ali drove up from LA and we headed up Madonna mountain to grab these shots.  Its a 40 minute hike up to the top, and as we had to start out with flashlights.  But it was a perfect time to connect as we hiked.  Did I mention I like to hike?  Anthony and Allie love the outdoors and thanks to Jamie our stylist, we came up with this for our shoot.  At the end we cruised down to the beach and grabbed some shots there as well.  Anthony & Allie are getting married at Dolphin Bay Resort later in 2011, a beautiful resort in Pismo Beach.  Enjoy these images!
