Disney World Magic Kingdom Proposal - Ryan and Celeste

Celeste was in Orlando on vacation at Disney World with her son and her mother. Ryan was back home in North Carolina at work. Except he wasn’t! He flew down the night before Celeste and company were heading to the Magic Kingdom and let me tell you—getting to Florida wasn’t easy! His flight was super delayed and he made it to Orlando in the wee hours of the morning.

I told Celeste that Mickey knew it was her birthday and that he had a surprise for her. While we were waiting for the Big Cheese, Ryan snuck up and surprised her! So she was not only shocked to see him, she was even more shocked when he dropped to one knee and proposed! Of course she said YES!

Congrats you two!

Tanea + James | Villages Polo Club Engagement Photos

Tanea and James are recent Florida transplants and they’re full of fun! This vibrant couple recently moved to Orlando after James’ work had him traveling here on a regular basis. They both work in the wrestling industry (so cool, right?) and seem to feed off the others playful energy!

We had a blast shooting their engagement photos at The Villages Polo Club and Katie Belle’s provided the incredible picnic spread to snack on — and shoot! The Villages Polo Club is an incredible wedding venue, with a gorgeous tree serving as the backdrop for their events. It’s truly a hidden gem and Barbara, the events manager, takes excellent care of her couples and all the necessary details! And Katie Belle’s, well, they had my heart with cannoli cream filled strawberries! They handle the catering for the Polo Club and let’s just say you’re going to want to wear stretchy pants!
