About, oh, 6 1/2 years ago, I asked my little sister what she wanted for her birthday, and she said a photo session. She’s been one of our biggest supporters from the beginning and she’s always loved having her photo taken, so this was nothing new- Except, this year, she wanted it with her sorority roommates. Ohhhhh, great, I thought, an hour with girls I have absolutely nothing in common with… But then a funny thing happened- I met them and loved all of them and was genuinely jealous of the crowd my sister was keeping in college!

Within the last few years, Nate and I had the incredible honor of photographing all of my little sister’s gorgeous roommates. All of them. Sarah was the last piece to the puzzle, which is why I shared that story! :)

Sarah’s day started out in the most adorable way possible- Her flower girl niece just chillin’ in her wedding gown. :)

One more fun story about Sarah: When my sister told her roommate I was a wedding photographer, Sarah went to our site and spotted herself in one of our photos- She was a guest at one of our old featured weddings! How funny is that? :)

Then it was off to Rosen Shingle Creek for the reception!

Now with the launch of Disney Roots, I’m hoping to keep Disney photos and wedding photos separate (with the exception of the obvious- Disney weddings!) If you’ve been following along with this blog for some Disney photo goodness, go getcha some! :)

Looking forward to future Photos of the Week being favorite past weddings, portraits, or current-ish happy bits of life. :)

Steve and Leigh have a very special friend in common with us: Hallpants.

Oh, and Hall’s parents, Nick and Jessie! Steve is one of those people that I feel like I’m good friends with because I’ve heard so much about him through the years from Nick and Jessie, but I guess in reality I’ve only met him a handful of times. I was thrilled when he proposed to his “one” and even more thrilled when he asked us to be their wedding photographers. :)

Steve and Leigh’s wedding took place at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando.

When Steve first met Leigh, he was completely smitten. The only problem? She was a character performer at Walt Disney World and wore a completely different wig every time he saw her! It took a few meets before he got to see what she really looked like. :)
