Disneyland Wedding Photographer – Hi Y’all, It’s me!

Disney World Engagement & Wedding Photographer Too!

Hi Y’all, It’s me…Donna.  This week I wanted to share with you all why I’m so passionate about being your Disneyland Wedding Photographer, or Disney World Photographer:)  Shoot, photography in any Walt Disney Company property is a dream.  I love to travel so bring me to Disney’s Aulani or even Disneyland Paris and we can work some magic there too!

I’m a Wife, Mom, Sister and Daughter and I love Disney.  My brother worked at Walt Disney World when I was a kid and my parents would take us there once or twice a year.  That was back in the days of Ticket Books.  My mom stored them in a shoe box!  I wish she still had those too.

I love to take pictures, make people see how amazing they are and travel while doing it.  I worked for The Disney Stores for 8 years and loved it because of the visual merchandising element of my job.  I enjoyed showing off details and making products pop visually.  Needless to say, I loved wearing all of the Disney clothes too.  Now I do the same thing as a Disney Wedding Photographer but I’m photographing you instead of products.

I consider myself in my “Second Act.”  Our kids are both in College now, and I am free to pursue photography much more than I was while my kids were in school.   I’m based in Mesa, Arizona but with my work and love for Disney, I am free to travel to multiple locations for your Disney Engagement Session and Wedding.
