I met Kate and BJ at the photo reveal of a wedding I shot a few years ago. Last weekend Shawna and I got to be a part of their incredibly fun wedding at a home they rented for the week near Sunset Cliffs in Ocean Beach. We’ve been fortunate to have gotten to know Kate and BJ following their engagement session we shot a while back. We’ve had them over to our place and it was through them that we found one of our favorite Italian restaurants, Ciao Bella in Ocean Beach. Kate and BJ are both from Connecticut, not far from where Shawna grew up in Western Massachusetts. I love hanging with east coast people – they have a good time and say it like it is! I’m sad that next month Kate and BJ will be moving home to Connecticut but they will be near their families, who they are especially close with. Their wedding was completely them – laid back, fun, and full of laughs. Shawna and I loved being a part of this wedding and getting to see what a fun group of people these are. The connection to family is strong with Kate and BJ, and their families had a great time with us. Kate’s mom even had Shawna put down her camera so Shawna could dance with them. It’s so special when we get brought into the fun of the day like that!
