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:
Danusia, you are gorrrrgeous. <3
Their wardrobe was so on point with this resort, I love seeing how perfectly they fit in every scene.
My other favorite, again by Nate *shakefist.* ;)
Danusia and Brendan, happy wedding planning- I know whatever you do will be perfect!! :)
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. :)
Jorge, you have the happiest smile ever!
I love how comfortable they are with each other.
Check back tomorrow for their stunning St. Pete wedding! <3
We received Amanda’s first inquiry on September 6th at 10:40pm, which Amanda later told us was approximately 15 minutes after browsing the DISboards. Another bride had mentioned she was hoping to get married in early December 2015. Amanda knew she needed to lock us in for her wedding date and wrote without first telling Jeff- (Thank you random Disney bride!)
They’re both cast members (Jeff even works in my old work home!), are self-proclaimed Disney nerds, love Disneyland more than the Magic Kingdom, and are hoping for a winter wedding theme. So basically we had absolutely nothing to talk about and the session was totally awkward and I didn’t leave kicking myself for not inviting them to Epcot for dinner with us after! ;)
Amanda and Jeff, thank you so much for being so wonderful and easy to photograph. I genuinely look forward to your wedding but hope to see you again before then! :)
I love finding secret spots at resorts! :)
This time next year, these guys will be married right here! <3
The epitome of Christmas in Orlando- Short sleeves and poinsettias, and Santa hats on a beach! :)
Amanda and Jeff, happy pre-anniversary month and we can’t wait to see you next year! :)
