Leu Gardens Engagement

Lori & Greg’s Floral Leu Gardens Engagement

Lori and Greg met me out at beautiful Leu Gardens in the heart of the Orlando / Winter Park area for their lovely, floral engagement this past week. I have to admit when planning out our session, I was a little hesitant to shoot so late in the day at 9 AM. Typically we aim between 7 to 7:30 AM for nice soft light and to avoid the Florida humidity, however the weather man upstairs must have been smiling down on my sweethearts as the perfect overcast morning rolled in, which made for the perfect cool morning to shoot an engagement.

With her heart set on different shades of color in the background for their engagement, at least a few shades different from just green – Lori knew that Leu would be the perfect spot. Her kind and gentle fiancé Greg of course was along for the ride and loved spending time with his darling. The two actually met through a social group at their church. During the first meeting, Greg spotted Lori and worked up the courage to ask her out on an official date after a few more meetings. Lori’s laughter is absolutely radiating and I can absolutely see how their date turned from a simple going out to a four hour dinner!

When asking my darlings about what they love most about one another, Greg replied that he loves Lori’s charm and bubbly personality, oh and of course her eggplant parmesan (Lori – remind me to ask myself to dinner hahaha!). Lori loves the way “Greg is so caring, easy going and willing to do anything for me and others.” Truly a match made in heaven!

From the moment Greg laid eyes on Lori, he knew she was the one. Their proposal couldn’t have been more sweet and endearing. The two had plans to celebrate their eight month anniversary with Lori meeting Greg at his place. When she arrived, to absolute surprise and sheer joy stood Greg in the kitchen with a table set for two. A red table cloth, heart shaped tea lights, sparkling cider, and tons of roses were laid out on the table all for Lori. When she went to take her seat at the table, she noticed that “I Love You” was spelled out in tea lights on the counter. Greg sat down with her and asked to read her a story, the story of “Lori and Greg.” After reading the most beautiful poem and writing about how he wanted to be Lori’s “Prince Charming Forever,” he asked Lori for her hand in marriage as he got down on one knee with the most gorgeous engagement ring. Lori of course said “yes!”

Looking forward to capturing my sweet bride to be Lori and her Prince Charming Forever Greg at Timacuan Golf Club for what I know will be one stunner of a wedding!

  1. Leu Gardens in Orlando is such a beautiful and romantic spot for an engagement session! The colours of the flowers, the white benches, the fountain – so perfect! I love the photo of Lori kissing Greg while he’s leaning against the fence post and the ring shots with the yellow rose. I can’t wait to see the photos you create as their wedding photographer!

  2. I love how you shared the story of how Lori & Greg met and got engaged in your post, it really makes me feel like I know them. Leu Gardens made an amazing engagement session location and I’m so glad the weather cooperated with nature’s soft box!

  3. This Leu Gardens Engagement is spectacular! Your couple looks so happy and your photographs of them are just beautiful. I bet they are proud they chose you as their Orlando Engagement Photographer!

  4. Beautiful Orlando engagement session. I love this park it’s so pretty and you really captured the love between Lori and Greg. Leu Garden is such an awesome spot for an Orlando engagement photographer.

  5. Gah! I just came back from Orlando, FL and totally missed seeing the Leu Garden. What a beautiful engagement session! So great!

  6. The Leu Gardens was the perfect venue for this engagement session. I love all of the lush greenery and blooming gardens; they added an extra bit of romantic flair to this already love-filled session. Orlando FL has the perfect location for future brides to capture their engagement session with the perfect engagement photographer, Corner House Photography.

  7. I love that this couple met you out at beautiful Leu Gardens in the heart of the Orlando / Winter Park area for their lovely, floral engagement this past week. I am also a little hesitant to shoot so late in the day at 9 AM, but love how the weather man upstairs must have been smiling down on your sweethearts as the perfect overcast morning rolled in, which made for the perfect cool morning to shoot an engagement.
