catherine + kevin | downtown annapolis, md engagement

where do i even begin with these two? catherine found me on instagram (honestly when does that not happen?) and told me she was visiting her long-distance fiancée, kevin, who attends the Naval Academy in Annapolis and that she was hoping for engagement photos to capture this stage of their life. (she's finishing up school in Texas -- that's pretty dang long-distance!)

from her bubbly and excited emails i knew she and kevin were going to be a blast to photograph, but i had no idea just how awesome the two of them would be. they showed me around the Naval Academy grounds, wandered through the back streets of downtown Annapolis, and then took me to the dock of kevin's host family's home to finish it off. they were SO happy, easy to laugh, ready for anything.

(at one point, i asked them to run towards me, at which point kevin grabbed catherine's hand and broke out in a full-out sprint which caught me completely off guard. i couldn't stop myself from including that blooper in this post!)

my cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing so much -- you've been warned, the same might happen to you as you scroll. catherine and kevin, thank you so much for inviting me into your story and for just being some of the kindest and funniest humans on the planet. you two rock.
