I’m starting to think that mother nature holds a grudge against some of my couples. On multiple occasions I’ve rescheduled an engagement shoot due to weather only to find their reschedule date also has bad weather! (Particularly poor Kelsey & Tyler who rescheduled four times and still had rain (and a rainbow!) on their engagement shoot!) Jessica and David have apparently gotten on mother nature’s bad side. We had hoped to do their photoshoot a few weeks earlier in downtown Gettysburg but heavy rain forced us to reschedule. On our reschedule date the weather predicted a 70% chance of thunderstorms in Gettysburg but a 0% chance of rain in Frederick until 7pm, so Jess and David decided to be flexible and do a Downtown Frederick engagement shoot instead. We all know the weather channel is 100% accurate so we were shocked when come 5pm the skies darkened, the wind picked up, and rain started pouring from the skies. We had to cut our shoot short but I am thrilled with the pictures we got! Jessica and David had never been to Downtown Frederick before so I decided to show them some of the highlights and I’m looking forward to the second half of their engagement shoot this spring. Hopefully mother nature will cooperate this time!
Cellar Door shout out: Brent and I both agree that they have the best burgers in Frederick. My talented friend Amy designed their Sweet & Sassy burger and it is amaaaazing. Order it with their sweet potato fries and you will not be disappointed. End advertisement.
Lovin the photobomb 😉
At this point in our photoshoot the skies started to very quickly darken and I started to doubt weather.com’s prediction.
Hurrying as the rain starts to drop. Surely the weather channel couldn’t be wrong!Within minutes the sky was dark and we took cover on Church Street. As disappointed as I was that we had to stop mid-shoot, the dramatic sky in this shot almost made it worth it!
Thank you for being good sports Jessica and David! I hope you enjoyed your Downtown Frederick engagement shoot as much as I did! I’m looking forward to your second engagement shoot and to your gunpowder and lace wedding this summer!
