Spring finally came and with it, this fun engagement session with Kelsey and Dylan at Wine Cellar Park in Dunbar, WV.
Kelsey and Dylan were high school sweethearts who dated until Kelsey's senior year, when Dylan decided he was going to work on the pipeline. Kelsey wanted no part of that life, so the two of them went their separate ways. Until August of 2019 when Kelsey ran into Dylan's sister and struck up a conversation, which led to Dylan contacting her and asking if she wanted to hang out. They got together and, as they say, the rest is history.
Now Kelsey works with Dylan on the Pennsylvania New York pipeline. It's a life on the road with lots of back and forth. At the time of their engagement session, it was the first time they'd been home since August 2019 for more than a few days. When they aren't working, they like to go to the gun range, go mudding, and work on the farm. They recently renovated their camper and got a puppy.
New Years Eve, as everyone was getting ready to ring in 2021 with fireworks, Dylan was running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Kelsey thought that he was acting like he'd forgotten something. When he asked her to go inside to grab him a drink because he was out of breath, she did so without suspecting anything. When she came back outside, Dylan was down on his knee proposing.
"I didn't know what I was doing," he remarked. "I just winged it."
"Our family all pretty much knew, except for me. Our neighbor was over, and he just started crying!" Kelsey added.
They'll be having their wedding at Snowshoe next year and they're excited for the experience there and having their family with them to celebrate. Looking toward the future, they plan to get off the road and put a house on their farm so they can raise a family.
Working with Kelsey and Dylan was so much fun. It was the perfect way to start our 2021 engagement season. Best wishes to them as they embark on the road of marriage!
