This cozy November engagement session along Carroll Creek in downtown Frederick, MD was photographed on Sunday, November 12 by Hannah Bjorndal. Hannah is a wedding & portrait photographer available for weddings in D.C., Maryland, Virginia & worldwide.
Glowing sunshine, bright colors and a cool fall breeze all contributed to this cozy November engagement session along Carroll Creek in downtown Frederick, MD last weekend! Andrew and Dani are 10 months away and counting from their wedding day, and I had so much fun celebrating their relationship with them!
Frederick, MD is significant to these two because this is where Andrew proposed. In an impressive act of sneakiness, careful planning and collaboration with friends, Andrew planned a proposal that Dani would never suspect. After she suggested that they should get a group together to go to Frederick’s Escape Room, Andrew contacted Dani’s friends and family to make the magic happen. Because Dani was the one who came up with the idea, Andrew knew that proposing within the Escape Room would totally surprise her! He managed to secretly ask her dad’s permission, gather the families together for the weekend, and coordinate with Escape Room to plant the ring in the final stages of the puzzle. When the group solved the mystery at the end of the evening, Dani found the ring and Andrew popped the question. Very impressive!
Even though it was a little chilly, we had the perfect evening for engagement photos. A few hazy clouds plus plenty of sun created gorgeous, glowing images. Andrew and Dani were excellent at making each other laugh and naturals in front of the camera! Everywhere we went, there were beautiful backdrops and pretty colors. I couldn’t get enough of Frederick!
Carroll Creek and downtown Frederick have a special place in my heart because Evan proposed to me right in this place over 3 years ago! He and I even had our own engagement session along the creek and downtown streets. It brought back so many happy memories to be photographing a recently engaged couple here! I felt extra-excited for these two and their future together as we strolled through town.
Already so pumped for your wedding day, Andrew & Dani!!! 🙂
