Leslie and Phil's engagement session at Sunrise Cove Marina at Lake Lanier, Georgia.

This was such a fun engagement session, I seriously can’t wait for the wedding at Villa Christina in a few short months! Was it Leslie’s dreamy eyes or killer smile that made photographing these two so easy? Actually, it was probably more Phil than anyone else, who surprised both Leslie and I with really coming out of his shell and bringing his inner model out! Maybe suffering through all of those team photo shoots while he was playing hockey rubbed off a bit, but he did awesome at the shoot and made Leslie a very happy girl. That’s not to say that Phil didn’t make Leslie a very happy girl a couple of months prior when he proposed to her on a boat while vacationing at the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, how cool is that! On to the photos though! We went up North to Lake Lanier where Leslie’s parents keep their boat and also where Leslie spent her childhood growing up, so it was the perfect location for some fun engagement photos among the boats on a cloudy and chilly, but not too cold, February evening.

After hanging out at the sailboats for a while, and getting “investigated” by the staff at Sunrise Cove (they were totally cool once they recognized Leslie and knew that she actually belonged there because her parents had a slip for the boat). We then headed to the other side of the marina a bit to the boat launch and got some more really sweet photos of these two lovebirds. Leslie looked amazing as she did all evening!

Love the final photo!! The boats and clouds all converge perfectly on the couple, even if they are centered in the image and a “breaking the rules” of traditional photography composition hehe =).

Thank you Leslie and Phil for the awesome time up at Lake Lanier! I absolutely can’t wait for your wedding day at Villa Christina!!
