Shawna and Michael started out as friends, and eventually started dating. After several years together, Michael planned a special weekend getaway, and didn’t give Shawna any hints (except that she should pack a nice outfit, and another set of clothes for hiking). They ended up in historic Shepherdstown, West Virginia, staying at the Thomas Shepherd Inn, for a romantic weekend, and a proposal! Shawna and Michael chose that same spot for their engagement session with Spence Photographics. They’ll be married this summer at Shade Trees and Evergreens Event Grounds in Frederick.
Even though Jon and Lara shared a group of mutual friends, they never had a chance to meet each other. Each time this group would get together, either Jon or Lara would be present, but never both! Finally, when Jon’s best friend married Lara’s high school friend, the resulting house-warming party served as the perfect meeting place. There was one problem – Lara had recently decided to swear off dating. She tried to spend most of the time catching up with her girlfriends, but some guy kept entering each conversation. It was Jon. He soon charmed Lara into three dates in one week, and eventually, the two became engaged.
Jacqie Q Photography captured this lovely engagement session for Jon and Lara in the historic Frederick County Town of New Market. Thanks for sharing, Jacqie!
