I know, I know, I shouldn’t have favorites.

But these two just melt me. Cynthia and Shane were one of our very first Walt Disney World wedding couples! They were married back in 2008 (which you can read on our old blog here!), and a couple years later, we met them in Celebration for a session with their daughter Violet, who just turned one. Look at her today!! <3

Not to be out-shined, of course, by her spunky little brother, Eli! <3

Funny story about Eli: Just like 99% of the kids we photograph, Eli really took to Nate. In the middle of the session, Cynthia told him, “Quick! Look at Miss Jensey!” and then, “Ok! Now where’s Mr. Nate?” Eli looked at her and shouted, “NO! That’s Miss Bobbi!” Cynthia corrected my name to him, and then he insisted, “NO! (Points to Nate) Miss Bobbi!” And from then on, we all lovingly referred to Nate as “Miss Bobbi.” :)

Cynthia is such a fun mommy, whether breaking into song with the kiddos or really getting them to ham it up for our cameras! :)

Candice and Jeremy’s wedding marked the first time in years we were able to photograph an Epcot wedding! Epcot weddings are my favorite. Even though Nate and I aren’t really “morning people” with our late night work hours, there’s something exhilarating about getting in the car to photograph a wedding and showing up at the hotel before the sun does. It reminds me of being a kid and getting up at 3am and driving to Walt Disney World in our pajamas.

I love showing up in a hotel room where the bride has been up since 4am, and was too excited to sleep the night before, and so everyone in the room is running on love and adrenaline. And I feel sort of like I belong to a special club- I mean, how many other wedding photographers in the world have a 6am start time on a Wednesday? :)

It took flying overseas for an internship and a lucky turn of events ending with these two sharing an apartment for Katie and Dustin to end up together. Dustin proposed to Katie on Christmas, and Katie contacted us soon after to schedule engagement photos. Lucky for us, our January trips lined up and we were able to make something happen! :)

It’s a rare sight to see the gorgeous entrance to the Boardwalk Inn sans buses or taxis!

Some extra love for the newly middle child, Jack (we have to stick together, you know!)

Most loved baby, ever. Jenn mentioned that Kayla wasn’t thrilled with the thought of a new baby when she first found out, but you should have seen these two fight over who gets to hold baby Walt! <3 Luckiest baby brother ever.

So, I’m a little embarrassed to admit how far back my blog queue goes. I mean… It’s not pretty. I often blog events out of order because maybe we shot a wedding of a childhood friend and I’m waiting to dig up some old photos to scan first, maybe I’m waiting to blog a gorgeous autumn wedding in, well, autumn, but I forget the first year and then the second comes and I feel almost too embarrassed to post it. Whatever the excuse, Sandra and Marc’s Disney Fairytale Wedding was last December and their pretty faces deserve some blog time! :)
