When I first met Anna I didn’t even know it- Nate and I were at Space Mountain when I asked a cast member a question and she later tweeted at me. :) Fast forward a few months and Anna’s writing us, asking us to photograph her wedding! There are so many reasons to love these two, but the biggest reason I’m looking forward to their wedding is that it’ll be our first at Orlando’s Bella Collina! I’ve wanted to photograph a wedding there for years, and Anna and Rob are the perfect first couple!

Krystal and Ben met ~five years ago at a small Christian college in Pittsburgh. Ben was a football player and Krystal a cheerleader. :) Ben’s family is from the west coast and Krystal’s is from the east coast. Since half of their guests would have to travel to a wedding regardless, Krystal and Ben decided to make it exciting and have a wedding on the Disney Cruise Line. I think they made the perfect decision, and it was so fun to document their adventure!

The day of their engagement session happened to also be Krystal’s birthday! And I just have to put it out there that Krystal is the one bride I’ve ever bonded with over mutual love for Mary Kate and Ashley’s Holiday in the Sun! It’s because of the movie she wanted to spend her birthday going to Atlantis, and I was totally jealous.

Krystal and I basically spent most of her session discussing how Holiday in the Sun is the most underrated film of our generation. Yep, I went there. ;)

Love all the color in Krystal’s dress! :)

We had to be back at the boat by a certain time so Krystal and Ben could go swim with dolphins, so we hoofed it to this awesome location Krystal found called the Queen’s Staircase.

Glad you found your “he’s what time it is,” Krystal. ;)

Do you remember that time we photographed this wonderfully adorable engagement session? (If not, you can click the photo below for a refresher course!)

Orlando Yum Yum Cupcake Truck Engagement Session Celebration

Well, that was the charming Kimberly and Mark, a couple that lived a block or so away from us in Celebration for years and we never met. Did I mention she’s also a wedding photographer and fellow lover of tiny dogs? :)

Kimberly and Mark brought us along on their 7-day Royal Caribbean adventure aboard the Oasis of the Seas. The Oasis of the Seas is the second largest cruise ship in the world, second only to her sister ship, the Allure of the Seas. Nate and I had a crazy fall wedding season and were so looking forward to this forced disconnect!

A couple days before their wedding on St. Thomas, Kimberly and Mark were up at dawn for some more engagement photos around an empty cruise ship. :) Root Weddings Royal Carribean Oasis of the Seas Engagement Session

We started shooting on the top deck, only to realize the wind was a bit unruly. Thank you Kimberly, for being such a great sport!! Root Weddings Royal Carribean Oasis of the Seas Engagement Session

Life is tough. ;) Krystal and Ben’s wedding was on Castaway Cay (those preview photos to come shortly), and we photographed their engagement session the day prior in Nassau. Nate and I had only been once, but we loved our adventure with these two for engagement photos around town!
