A Deep Creek Lake Proposal and Surprise Engagement Session

Jessica Fike

Deep Creek Lake not only serves as a place to marry, vacation, and get away for the weekend, it also is a perfect place to propose.

This proposal story comes from Melissa of Farfalla Photography. It was a last-minute arrangement with Melissa that ended with two surprises for the bride-to-be, Kelli. She was first overjoyed by a proposal while visiting the mountains of Maryland and and then, for a second surprise, an engagement photo session to help commemorate the weekend and the new journey that she and Matt would be taking together.

From photographer Melissa: Kelli’s mom called me on a Saturday. She said her daughter was being proposed to, like “right now”, and mom would love to surprise her daughter with an engagement session the next day! Kelli and Matt spend every summer in the Deep Creek Lake area with Kelli’s family, and he proposed on one of their favorite biking trails.

Photos were taken on a private dock on the lake and Swallow Falls State Park.

Thanks so much for sharing with us, Melissa! And CONGRATS to Kelli and Matt!
