Safely mingle with like-minded individuals, take advantage of gorgeous morning lighting and afterwards, when you feel like you’ve got the perfect shot, just wander the Zoo as a visitor and embrace your inner child.

In the past, this event has gotten a ton of buzz, selling out soon almost immediately, so if you’re interested, do not hesitate!

Tickets cost $25 each and will have you up and at ’em shortly after the sun rises, so not only will you have a ton of fun taking photos, you’ll also have a full day to get things done and enjoy yourself.

This really is a once-in-a-blue-moon opportunity so you’re not going to want to miss it!

Happy clicking!
