Just when we thought all of our engagement sessions were done for the season, we had one more spunky couple who wanted to brave last weekend’s chilly fall temperatures for some photos down at Lighthouse Beach in Chatham. It was definitely chilly, but the afternoon light was gorgeous and so were Kristyn & Patrick, who are getting married next summer at the Wequassett Inn in Chatham. They hired us as their photographers without having met us, so our first introduction was prior to our session. We met them at Kristyn’s folks house, not far from the beach.
If you look up the word FUN in the dictionary, you’ll find photos of Kristyn & Patrick. They are the kind of people who you just want to have around you. We instantly clicked with them and are so excited that they took a leap of faith and booked us sight unseen. We have no doubts that their wedding is going to be a total blast and we’re really looking forward to getting to know them both better over the coming year!
Although we were a little nervous about whether the session would be a success given how chilly it was, we couldn’t be happier with how things turned out. Of course, it helps that Kristyn & Patrick are totally adorable….check them out!
Seriously….is it legal to be that drop-dead gorgeous?
Peek-a-boo, I see you!
Kristyn loved this Danger sign, so we asked them to have a smooch and used them to frame the shot…cool, right?
Just to the left of the sign is the Chatham Lighthouse. Love this composition too.
The late afternoon sun hit the beach fences lining the dunes and created some dramatic shadows…I love this shot! i think it’s the contentment I see in Kristyn’s eyes. What a world it would be if every moment, in every part of the world, felt like this one…
One of the great things about visiting the beach this time of year is that there generally aren’t many people around, so it’s easy to make fresh tracks in the sand. So fun!
The beach grass is quickly losing it’s color, but it’s still so beautiful to me.
Long fall shadows blanket the untouched sand, giving the appearance of snow, don’t you think?
I love the light in this shot and the expansiveness of the beach. We live in such a beautiful corner of the world!
I don’t know why I enjoy cutting people’s heads off so much, but I just love the effect. It’s so rock star to me!
After a long chilly session, Kristyn gets a lift from Patrick. The crazy woman took off her shoes. Madness!
A great big thank you to Kristyn & Pat for being such troopers and for being SOO much fun to be around. You guys were a joy to photograph and we can’t wait till August to be there with you when you say, “I do!” Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of such a special time in your lives. It is truly an honor! And thank you too Diane & Dick for welcoming us into your home, and especially to you Diane for seeking us out! I think we’re going to have a wonderful time getting to know each other over the coming year! With hugs and warmest wishes, Christine & Andy
