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.
