Chatham MA Wedding: Kim and CJ

This family.

One of the highest honors you can have as a wedding photographer is to be invited back to photograph the wedding of a sibling in a family you have photographed before. Such is the case with CJ. His sister is Kelsey, whom you can see here and here. When CJ and Kim got engaged and asked us to photograph their wedding, we were elated. Truly.

Their wedding day was the day after Hurricane Dorian passed over Cape Cod. The night prior was windy and dark and cold and stormy and everything you don’t really want your wedding to be. The morning of though was GORGEOUS! What a relief.

A few things I loved about Kim and CJ’s wedding are as follows:

  • The Weather, always easier to appreciate after a storm
  • That we did the family and wedding party photos by the water
  • A live painter for the couples first dance
  • The Father/Daughter dance, which transformed into an Irish Step Dance, which then evolved into a professional Irish Step dancing performance. —— in.cred.i.ble!
  • Jumping on to a dock with Kim and CJ during the portraits after the tide had come up so far that the only way on was a leap of faith

The most important thing though, and always will be, that they are such kind human beings, which is forever my favorite element of a wedding day to photograph.

Hey there!

This is a photo of me in a burger bar in Stockholm Sweden. I am about to drink the best beer I have ever had. It's a pretty important photo of me. I just remember feeling filled with joy and so so glad to be alive. That's a good place to start on getting to know me.


I like to travel.

I like beer.

I like the person who was across the table from me. Any guesses who?

where we hang
