Kelsey & Travis | Annapolis Engagement Session

They say that if you don’t like the weather in Maryland just wait ten minutes, and that’s exactly how Kelsey and Travis’s engagement session went. We met at the historic London Town & Garden on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon. Then it began to rain, but the sun was still shining. Then, the skies opened and a torrential downpour fell. Finally, the sun peeked back out – and through it all, we had a blast!

These two are so fun and laid back, and if we could handle a crazy engagement session with this much grace and laughter, I know they’ll be able to handle anything Mother Nature dishes out on their wedding day.

Travis is from Pennsylvania, and Kelsey is from southern Maryland. The two met while teaching, and the rest is history! They’ve put roots down near Annapolis, and are planning a July 2018 wedding in Kelsey’s hometown. I love event planning almost as much as I love my camera, and it’s been an honor to be part of their celebration.

When your bride looks unfazed at the pouring rain and suggests going outside for a game of catch, you know you’ve hit the jackpot! As the official, completely unbiased scorekeeper, Maryland definitely won by eight million points.

Travis’s one request throughout their preparations has been that they get married near the water – we are in southern Maryland, after all! He suggested we head down to the dock as the rain cleared out, and the results were ahhhh-mazing. The dip is their signature move, so I’m sure we’ll see it on their wedding day too!
