Mordie Photographie shares a behind the scenes take on this beautiful lakeside boat dock engagement shoot,
Samantha and Jonathan love spending time on the lake. They just bought a house on the lake, and they love going boating with friends. When he proposed, Jonathan took Samantha to their friend’s dock at Eagle Mountain Lake, in Fort Worth, Texas. As Samantha puts it, “He acted like it was another day out boating with everyone. Then, as we were getting the boat all ready, he had me go look at my “surprise”, which I thought was a new waterski. When I turned around he was down on one knee! It caught me off guard because I wasn’t expecting it at all, but I could not have been happier!”
So, when it came time to do their engagement photos, they knew they had to involve Eagle Mountain Lake somehow, since it was such a sentimental place. That’s when they had the idea of getting a sailboat! They found Kathryn, at Mordi Photographie, who made the arrangements with the marina and a private sailor, to get a sailboat for the session. However, after a couple of weeks of stormy weather, they almost gave up on the lake idea altogether. But in one last-ditch effort, they headed to the lake just in time for the clouds to part and the rays of the sun to grace them with its presence.
What ensued were images so unbelievably incredible that Samantha and Jonathan have to keep pinching themselves. You’ll just have to see for yourself! Next year they’ll embark on another voyage, over to Turks and Caicos, for their intimate wedding on the beach.
