First wedding of the 2022 season kicked off on May 7, 2022 with one of the sweetest couples ever. Rene and Mark got married at The Red Lion Inn, Cohasset MA. The Red Lion Inn is a quaint little stay that packs a punch in beauty and charm. This was my second time photographing at this venue and I just love the gardens outside the barn and inn. The gardens in the spring were also even more beautiful with flowering trees and fresh blooms.

Rene and Mark had such an easy going day. Not being big picture people we spent some time getting the main formal photos taken but finished an hour early so they could spend time relaxing. My assistant and I spent that time taking detail photos and setting up for the ceremony. The barn is a relatively dark space so it was nice to have that extra time to test out a few different lighting situations.

I am so grateful that Rene and Mark chose CKP to be a part of their day. They are so sweet and funny which made my season start on a high note. Also, Rene was such a trooper in the chilly spring weather. All week the weather apps said it would rain on the 7th but the storm moved south so all we had in Cohasset was clouds and wind. Rene was so cold but she toughed it out as we moved quickly through the formal photos.

Hi, I'm Caitlin!

My love for photography comes from the countless photo albums my parents filled of my childhood. I always loved looking back on those photos and loved playing with the disposable cameras as I grew up. I practice photography all through middle school and high school, dabbled in food photography in college, before finding my love for couples photography towards the end of my degree. It was a scary leap to pursue a different career than the one I studied for but I knew this was what I needed to at least try...
