I'll have you know that I am NOT a morning person. At all. However, last Friday at about 8:00 AM (early for me...don't judge) I popped out of bed with a giant smile on my face and a joyful squeal escaping my lips. Why, you ask?
Our Disneyland engagement photos were finally here!
Since a Disneyland wedding simply is not in the budget, Brandon promised me a Disneyland engagement photo session instead. I knew I picked a winner ;D! Months ago, we began our search for the perfect photographer to capture our love story on film...and it was a long process. An engagement session should be an exciting event, but many photographers responded to my Disneyland inquiry with hesitation and statements like "It's kind of hard, but I guess we could try to make it happen." That wasn't good enough for me! Was it too much to ask that a photographer would be excited about our idea?! It was at about that point in the research process that I came across D Park Photography. From the moment that they enthusiastically responded to my email, I knew that these guys were the photographers for us! As fellow Disney lovers, they were completely thrilled with our idea and I could tell that they weren't intimidated with the challenges a busy theme park might present. Since Brandon and I don't live in California, we worked out the details via email. At first we were nervous about meeting our photographer for the first time on the day of the shoot, but from the moment we shook hands with Russell and Cara, our minds were at ease! They were so warm, inviting, and chock full of incredible ideas! By the end of the shoot, I felt like I was hanging out with old friends!
D Park Photography helped us plan a modern day Cinderella and Prince Charming shoot, including other picturesque Disneyland shots. Now, how about some of those photos?
Oops...Cinderella's lost her shoes!
Many thanks to Cara, the bubble wrangler =P!
Notice our lovely photobomber in back...haha!
Back in the engagement spot =]!
I absolutely ADORE how these turned out! My mind was blown when I saw these, they're better than anything I could have ever imagined! Again, Brandon and I could not thank D Park Photography enough for their efforts to make our shoot unforgettable. We HIGHLY recommend them for any of you in need of photography services! Take a peek at their website, Facebook page, and blog to see more of their work.
Nope, no nails in this post, just cuteness and love ♥! Hope you don't mind =]
Have a wonderful day!
