Courtney & Kevin: Baker Park Engagement Session | Frederick, Maryland

Courtney and Kevin met about a decade ago, just before their Junior year of high school. Kevin was life-guarding at the Edward P. Thomas Memorial pool in Frederick, Maryland in Baker Park, and Courtney was on the dive team that practiced there. They went to different schools but would see each other while out and about or while hanging out with mutual friends… They started spending more time together just one-on-one, and “the rest is history” Courtney says! She said there was an instant connection and comfort while spending time together, and they knew it was meant to be. They  lived together throughout all four years of college and after graduation, saved up to buy a house in Frederick a couple years ago where they live with their cat, LeRoi.

(Remember Christa and Adam?? Kevin is Christa’s cousin and played guitar during their ceremony! They’re big Dave Matthews Band fans too, just like Christa and Adam are!)

They love the same music my hubby and I do, so we spent time talking about meeting some of our favorite bands, going to concerts, and went on and on about the reggae music scene while we walked around the park. It was such a pretty summer night! I absolutely loved hanging out with them… I just love when my couples enjoy the same vibes I do! :)

Here are a few of my favorites!

We took a walk down to the pool where they first met… It was so sweet to listen to them reminisce. The cute little elderly lady at the front desk, who’s been working that job for a LONGGGG tiiiime, still remembered them! They said everything looked and felt the same, and told a few stories about what they remember from their time spent there… I couldn’t help but want to dive right in! The water looked amazing!
