What a grand adventure, indeed. Discovering new places with chill adventurous couples is hands-down one of the best parts of my job. Cate & Kyle are two absolutely wonderful, funny, and down-to-earth folks who make you feel warm inside, like old friends. When Cate suggested going to Calvert Cliffs for their engagement session, I was 1000% in. We hiked (“Maryland hiked”) 2 miles out to the cliffed shoreline through the forest of trees while dodging jumping frogs under our feet & stepping twice over a snake flickering its tongue. lolllz. We took our chances on a doomed forecast calling for heavy thunderstorms & just powered through the forest on a mission to beat the rain. And ohhh man it was perfect. Before the rain came Cate & Kyle danced & splashed in the bay waters, curled up in swaying tall beachy grasses, and balance beamed over driftwood. As the daylight lingered, the rain started sprinkling and added even more romantic vibes to our sweet adventure. As we began to head back to our cars, the dark storm clouds rolled in & we navigated our two mile hike back in the dark of night with our cell phone flashlights laughing the whole way. Now that’s how you nail an outdoorsy engagement session. Cate & Kyle, thanks for being great optimistic adventure friends! I hope your move up to Vermont & all of the craziness of life is treating you well!
