Disneyland Engagement Photos
Dani & CJ chose to have their engagement photos taken at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure, and I can’t think of a better place for them!
When it comes to engagement and portrait sessions I always ask my couples to think of somewhere that is really ‘them’. I’ve had shoots in kitchens, the ocean, up a mountain and even in the bedroom as things got steamy! Dani asked me how I’d feel about shooting their engagement session at Disneyland. How could I say anything but bring on the mouse ears!?
Side note – I have a slight problem with Disney and their desire to make me cry in the first minute of every movie. My poor parents were asked to remove me from the cinema when we saw Dumbo because I was upsetting all the other children with my sobbing. This wasn’t recent, by the way! I did warn Sam in advance of the new Lion King but he still looked on in amazement as I cried before ANY dialogue was even spoken.
I digress. Back to Dani & CJ and their engagement shoot. These are not your traditional engagement photos at Disneyland, because Dani and CJ are not your traditional couple. Dani is the embodiment of a 50s pin up. She has flawless eyeliner, sings in a rockabilly band and is a killer stylist. CJ makes the most amazing creations one can only dream of owning, as well as keeping the film industry real. Together they are unstoppable and so much fun.
From the moment I met them it was obvious we were going to have a blast. Once they found out I’d not been on the new Star Wars ride, they determined to get a place secured. This was so touching, and the ride was fabulous!!
I hope you enjoy these Disneyland engagement photos as much as I enjoyed taking them! Keep an eye out for a couple of well-known faces congratulating the happy couple.
Of course I had to say hello to the bunny! Hi, Thumper!
