Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister, Rescue Pup Mom and hat lover!  I'm not too fussy about food but I'm really fussy about kindness and manners.  I teach my kids to hold the door for people,  to always say Please and Thank You and to love fiercely.  I love Tinker Bell and would love to fly over Sleeping Beauty's Castle.   Let me tell you more.  We may have some things in common.

Disneyland Engagement Photography Inspiration

Disneyland Balloons for Engaged man and woman

Disneyland Engagement Inspiration

So you want to have your engagement session at Disneyland or Walt Disney World?  Let’s do it!  In this blog post, I’ll show you a small sample of my Disneyland Engagement Photography Inspiration.

Christian Louboutin shoes with Dooney & Bourke Backpack with engaged man and woman in Disneyland

My clients, Anne and Gerald brought their “A” game to their Engagement session in Disneyland.  Anne’s a shoe lover and brought her Christian Louboutin’s, along with her Dooney and Bourke Disney Parks Backpack to pair with her Polka Dotted Classic Minnie Mouse Ears.

These two were seriously so much fun and game for multiple locations and even an outfit change.

Dress it up Disney for your Engagement Session!

Going to be honest and tell you that Anne forgot to put those magnificent shoes on right away but I didn’t mind at all.  I think she looks fabulous in her Classic Black Van’s too!  We were able to find Engagement Photography Inspiration around every corner.  Our first stop was right up at the front of Disneyland’s Main Street.  That’s where they are cuddling on this stone bench.  Some days you’ll even find Mickey or Minnie hanging out here too.

Who says that Sleeping Beauty and Prince Philip are overdone?  Not us because you and your partner don’t have this photo in your very own Disney inspired outfits.  Anne’s Team Pink when it comes to Aurora’s dress choice.  Don’t be afraid to wear a pretty dress just like thins one.  Anne looks amazing and the dress was easily folded into my backpack.  You’ll even see that Gerald brought a change in his shirt too.  In the beginning, he was wearing a red and white button down shirt.  He changed into his golf shirt when Anne changed into this dress.

Inspiration for your Disneyland Engagement Photography Session is Everywhere.

Tell me you’re Goofy without telling me You’re Goofy!  Pretty sure that’s what Gerald was doing here are we were ending our session.

Don’t be afraid to use color or patterns to play up your favorite Disney Couple to enhance your own session.  That’s exactly what Anne and Gerald did here.  We also had a Disneyland Engagement Session across the way in California Adventure.  You can see that blog post and their super cute outfits for that session Here.

And y’all, don’t hesitate if you’d like to hang out with me at Disneyland or Walt Disney World for your Engagement Photography Session, I’d love to hear from you Here.
