Kelly + Jaryn | A Lakefront Howard County Engagement

It feels soooooo good to be back on the blog with a new engagement session!!! After over two months of not being able to do any kind of photography, I was able to get back behind the lens last night for Kelly and Jaryn’s e-sesh! We had to reschedule their session a few times because of COVID-19 and weather, but we finally were able to make some magic together and y’all…it was worth the wait. These two could not be cuter!! They oozed love vibes the whole time and were stealing little kisses throughout the entire session. I mean, are they not just the cutest???

They both just graduated from Messiah College this spring (WOOT WOOT!! Class of 2020!!!) and they both are going to be teachers! Jaryn has already accepted an offer to teach 4th grade and Kelly is gearing up to be a fearless middle school math teacher. These two love each other, love Jesus, and are ready to shape the minds of children…how do I get such wonderful couples?!

Kelly and Jaryn met their freshman year of college and started dating. After a few years, they knew they wanted to get married! Jaryn kept throwing Kelly off the track of his proposal plan by telling her over and over that he didn’t have a ring. Of course, he did 😜 One a beautiful date out in Maryland wine country, he asked Kelly about her life in May 2016. Confused, all she could think was that back then, she didn’t even know Jaryn! But then he reminded her that she wrote a prayer about her future husband that month…and now he was on one knee!! Ahhhh!! Obviously she said ‘yes’ and the rest is history. The surprises kept coming when he took her to an engagement party with her friends and family afterwards! All I can say is, good job Jaryn.

Their engagement, senior year, and wedding planning definitely hasn’t looked the way they were expecting thanks to the coronavirus. But that hasn’t stopped these two from celebrating and enjoying this season of life! I am so impressed at their resiliency and optimism. I cannot wait for their wedding this summer!! At least now they have lots of images to remember how they felt during this season of life. Keep on scrolling to see all the cuteness that is Jelly!! (I just feel like that needs to be their couple name 😂)
