Chris and Christine are former workmates of mine from years ago – actually we all worked at Disney together.
Well, years later here we are and the two of them are now engaged to be married next June! Chris contacted me a while back when a friend of his was getting married to talk to me about photography, then a few months later he got in touch with me again with the news that he and Christine were engaged!
Well the two of them decided they wanted to do their engagement shoot at Disneyland, how fun! Disney has a special meaning to the both of them, so what better place to do your photos than the Happiest Place on Earth?
Christine was amazing – though she’ll probably be quick to tell you she was nervous the whole time. I kept trying to mention in emails to Chris that “we’ll have a blast man, it’ll be great to see you two and catch up. Don’t worry, we’ll have fun and get plenty of shots.” Chris said that Christine was worried, and she also wanted to make sure she looked good in the photos. And Christine, you looked amazing. I’m pretty sure everyone will be able to see that in all these shots.
But here’s the best part, Christine had done tons of research on different engagement photos that had been done throughout the park by other photographers. She came with a few pages of images for ideas and both of them had a really good idea of what they wanted. They had already decided they needed enough images for a book they were putting together.
Well, we walked through the gates and got started! It was a pretty warm afternoon, which turned into a wonderfully warm night as we ran all over the park making sure to cover everything we could.
The first shot of the day was something that Christine had found online. The wishing well shot. Try posing your hands like that and make it look natural and comfortable. It took us a few tries, I’ll be honest. And it was great that so many park guests came up and congratulated them as we shot.
