Chatham MA is such a beautiful spot for a romantic Cape Cod engagement session. During the summer months when it’s high tourist season it’s much easier to have a session close to sunrise. Since this Cape Cod engagement took place after Labor Day weekend we had the luxury of a sunset photo session with the beach practically to ourselves. I had the honor of photographing this amazing Cape Cod proposal for Flytographer right before Thanksgiving. It was a beautifully sunny day and we were able to combine photos on the beach, the iconic Chatham Lighthouse, and Chatham’s Main Street for this dreamy shoot.

When I offered to take a photo of them as a friendly photographer waiting for another session- Gaby had no idea what was about to happen next!
In reality, Jordan and I had already been chatting for weeks about their Cape Cod engagement session and I had scouted the beach well before to select this exact spot. In fact I stuck a small flag in the sand so Jordan would know when he was getting close to where I was standing.
