I met Rachael on DisBrides on Disney Brides Diary Facebook page. We immediately clicked! I could tell right away I liked her. She has a great sense of humor. Even if it is at our expense for being Chicago Cubs’ fans (she is a White Sox fan). However, we do have the same love of the Chicago Bears!
With their package, we offered an engagement session. So, they chose Disney’s Magic Kingdom as their location. Good choice! Leading up to the day, Rachael had messaged me saying she was nervous. She and troy had never had professional pictures taken together. They really had nothing to worry about. They were like pros!
We started at Center Street…
We moved on looking for some shady spots. It was such a bright day, but the weather was perfect!
The Teacups was a must on their list. I must really like them, because I told them they could spin as much as they wanted. I HATE spinning rides! The ride stopped, but I had not. It took a couple of minutes to get my bearings, again. 🙂
Dumbo was next!
Dumbo definitely calls for throwing the arms in the air! 😉
Another must was the Train Station by the Circus. This is always one of our favorite spots.
Making our way around the park. I love doors!
Steve saw this wall and knew it had to be used!
Another of our favorite spots. The lighting here is perfect!
We do our best to find out of the way, quiet areas. We were so happy to find this one…
Mickey pretzels? Yes, please!!!
Rachael told us that she is completely in love with stuffed animals. Soooo…. What is better than a wall of Mickey’s and Minnie’s?!
Mickey decided to join them outside!
This is an inside joke… 😉
Rachael & Troy – we had SO MUCH FUN with you! Thank you for spending the day with us. We are really looking forward to your wedding day! It will be here before we know it! Now – we just need to decide which Cubs’ jerseys we will be wearing for your special day! 😉
Some outtakes and behind the scenes…
There were a TON of Cubs’ fans in the park! We are EVERYWHERE!!! 🙂 This was Rachael’s reaction when one walked out of the door next to where we were setting up…
I spy Steve…
Before we started moving…
I have to become a contortionist on Dumbo!
This right here is what happens when our clients don’t do what I ask them to do!!! I JOKE!!! I was showing Troy what to do with his hand and Steve caught this. It looks like I was going to hit Rachael. I promise, no clients were injured during this session!
