Swallow Falls State Park is one of my favorite places to take pictures. No matter the season, it always looks beautiful. The tall pine trees and various ground vegetation offer some natural color, even in springtime when we’re between winter and summer, and waiting on the lush green to return. That’s the current state of Garrett County and we locals are all hoping the colors of spring and summer return very soon. In the meantime, I’ll try to fill the blog with everything that we’re missing. 🙂

Meet Alison and Shannon! We did their engagement pictures at Swallow Falls last summer. Alison’s family has a place on the lake and she’s been visiting for years. Shannon came to the U.S. from Australia and in his journey as a college basketball player, he met Alison. Even though they live on the eastern side of Maryland, they still make plenty of time to visit the mountains of Western Maryland. An engagement session in the mountains and woods of the area they love to retreat at made the perfect location…

Alison and Shannon, I hope your December wedding in Florida is fabulous! Thanks so much for having me and for allowing me to capture you in a place that is so special. Maybe I’ll run into you guys at the lake this summer? 🙂

Ah Tolliver Falls at Swallow Falls! When the sun sets behind these trees, it’s just the best!

There’s a good chance I was standing in the water with my zoom lens for this one. 🙂

Another favorite spot at Swallow Falls! That glow coming in behind those trees is just heavenly!

And when the water is low enough, there’s always opportunity for some rock-sitting…

After Swallow Falls, we ventured to Alison’s family’s place at the lake and took some pictures on the dock with their dog. The sunset was coming in hot!

I love these next few of them interacting on the boat and dock. 🙂

Final moments before the sun ducked behind the mountains…

NOW who’s ready for summer!?!? 🙂
