Rebecca & Ashley’s Disney World Engagement Photos

You guys from now on, I’m only shooting Disney World engagement photos. It’s combining my favorite things. Okay, I’m not actually limiting myself to that, especially because we live in North Carolina, but I *am* at Disney World a lot, so hit me up! 

My sister Rebecca, & her fiancé Ashley are Disney nerds just like John & I. When they said they were going to be down at the same time I was down for the Kreativ Conference (more on that soon), we jumped at the chance to do their engagement photos at Disney World. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Check out how cute these two are in their Belle & Beast disneybounds.

Also, I might have gone a little crazy with the number of images I’m including. What can I say, it’s my baby sister and she’s getting married!

Since the day was a little gross and rainy (and Epcot is under some serious remodeling at the main entrance), we hustled to the first indoor area we could in order to dry off. The Seas Pavilion was perfect for dipping our toes into the session. Sea what I did there? Ba Dum Cha.

Back outside, the rain had mostly stopped, but we still had grey skies, so we made our way into World Showcase and ran toward color wherever we could find it.

My sister is the one sticking her tongue out when I instructed her to give Ashley a kiss on the cheek. Yep, we’re related.

LUNCHTIME! We rode the brand new gondolas from Epcot over to Disney’s Riviera Resort for lunch, where we also got portraits with the most gorgeous Tangled theme mosaic wall. This post is starting to feel like it belongs on Ropedrop.net, so maybe if I ask real nice, John will put it there too.

Back at Epcot, we hit up Morocco, Japan, Italy, China, Norway, and Mexico…

…before working real hard to find an angle of Spaceship Earth without ugly construction walls. Shout out to the random stranger who stopped and held the light for me in the second photo!

Before you think we are weak and this was a single-park day, it’s time to head over to Magic Kingdom, where the Belle & Beast looks really shone out front of Be Our Guest.

A day at Disney is not complete without fireworks, so we staked out a spot in front of Cinderella’s castle to watch (and make some portraits obviously).

  1. […] As we’ve talked about on the site before, Elyssa’s “real” job is as a wedding and portrait photographer over at Kivus and Camera.

A couple of images are included below, but, if you want to see the whole set (and there about 35 more), you can head over to the Kivus and Camera blog and see the post. […]
