I was about to start blogging Lindsay and Jackie’s wedding day when I realized I never posted their engagement session!

These two were engaged for nearly 3 years before starting to plan their Disney wedding. They’re from Texas, and have truly made it to the list of our all-time favorite couples. <3 We photographed their engagement session around the Wilderness Lodge. Enjoy, and come back later this week when I blog their wedding- It’s a two part-er! :)

Today is one of those silly milestones that might not seem like much, but it’s a pretty big deal for me.

This is my 1000th blog post. 1000, you guys!!

We wanted to do something fun to commemorate it, so here we go! Years ago we did a session giveaway and loved the response. It actually led us to meeting one of our favorite families, one of the daughters eventually becoming our wedding assistant for a while! :)

So maybe you’ve been putting off booking that family photo session. Or you want to see my cute husband climb a tree. Maybe it’s been 10 years since your wedding and you haven’t been in front of the camera since. We want to hear from you!

Nathanial and I will be giving away one free portrait session* and USB drive (Valued at $700.) All entries must be received by Sunday, July 26th as we will be announcing our winner Thursday, July 30th on the blog.

All you have to do is take a photo of you and whomever else will be photographed and write a little something about why YOU should be in front of our cameras and send your entry to yaygiveaway@rootweddings.com. Your 10 day deadline begins now… We can’t wait to meet you! :)

Stephanie and Italo are both nurses- She’s in pediatrics, he’s in the ER, and they took a much needed vacation to Walt Disney World earlier this year. We met up with them for photos around the Grand Floridian for some extra colorful engagement photos. :)

After a string of engagement sessions at the Boardwalk Inn, we loved hopping over to French Quarter for a change of pace! :)

Danusia contacted us just a couple of days after getting engaged, and we’re so glad she picked us for her engagement session photographer! I love when we get to meet our couples so short after the proposal because I feel like they’re extra shiny. Is that weird? It’s wonderful hearing about initial wedding hopes and dreams and then getting to see the end result! :)

Nate knocked it out of the park (agaaaaaaain) with my most favorite, favorite photo from the day:

Vanessa and Jorge met when they were eleven years old, became close friends, and came to their senses and started to date their senior year of high school. They’ve been through it all together- College, winning a fight against cancer, buying a house, remodeling a house, and are the owners of THE cutest white fluffy dog you’ve ever seen. They are both so  sweet and easy to be around, and I was going to blog their wedding today but realized I never blogged their engagement session! *facepalm*

We met up with Vanessa and Jorge at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside for their session. :)
