Grantsville and Deep Creek Lake Engagement Session: Brianne & Mike
Brianne and Mike are getting married today! It’s all happening at StoneBridge in Cumberland and I’ve heard SO MANY good things about the place! Brianne, Mike and I became good friends last September while driving around (for four hours 🙂 ) for their engagement session, and Brianne and I have been in frequent contact since then (she’s a planner and question-asker…I love that she wants to get it all right!)…so I’m excited to reunite with them again today!
We started their engagement session at the Casselman Bridge in Grantsville. We then ventured into the Spruce Forest Artisan Village. Before we left Grantsville, I treated them to some coffee from the Cornucopia Cafe because they have salted caramel creamer that needs to bottled up and sold to the public! (I just found out that they’re actually going to do this! 🙂 ) Our last stop was Deep Creek Lake State Park, one of my favorite spots for pictures in Garrett County! Of course there was a pretty photo op alongside the road before we actually got to the park, but thankfully Brianne and Mike were okay with an extra stop! Their vision was to capture the mountains, water and countryside of our county, and our four-hour adventure allowed us to capture exactly that…
Brianne wanted to include this glass rose from Mike…
A few favorites for me…
They’re good at this snuggling thing!
I’m pretty sure Brianne did not hesitate when I asked her if they’d get in the water. 🙂
We found flowers!
Mike is in the Army and stationed in North Carolina. We included some of his uniform in the session and it’ll also be a part of their wedding day today!
Just a nice little field along the road. 🙂
It was a windy and chilly day, especially by the water! But you know what!?! That’s okay because it’s going to be sunny and warm for their wedding day!!! YAY!!
There they go with that snuggling again!
A few on the beach before we ended…
Thanks for spending so much time with me back in September, guys! And for really caring about capturing some quality, meaningful engagement pictures! I’m so glad we were able to get to know each other that morning and I’m excited to capture so much more today!
