the love story

Debbie and John’s love story began early – both met at Pasadena High School and while John was set on Debbie from freshman year, the two began officially dating their junior year. After four happy years of dating, John proposed to Debbie one romantic December in Vegas and, of course, she said yes!

the wedding day

Being avid Disney fans and longtime passholders, Debbie and John decided to make their magical day happen at the happiest place on earth – Disneyland!

It’s those little details that really tie the wedding together!

For example, there were hidden mickeys in bridesmaid and bride bouquets. See if you can spot them!

Louboutin love.  Gorgeous heels, Debbie <3

The maid of honor also had Louboutin heels!  Love all the ladies shoes.

Beautiful veil shot of Debbie! You look fantastic!

The happy ladies

and the excited gentlemen!

Debbie, you look so beautiful!

And John also looks handsome – look how happy he is!

You guys make such a sweet couple!

There are those gorgeous louboutin heels again!

All the Disney details!

Their sign-in was inspired by Up: each guests’ thumbprint would represent a different balloon. So cute!!

The beautiful rose garden where the ceremony took place

And the awesome Cinderella Carriage Coach that brought them in!

True to their Disney theme, each table was named after a different Disney song lyric

A large group photo on dance floor not only makes a great picture, but is an awesome way to start the dancing with everyone on the dance floor.

And, of course, no Disney wedding would be complete without some beautiful shots with the castle.

congratulations

Congratulations, John and Debbie!! You guys are a wonderfully lovely couple, and your day was truly magical. Thank you for letting us capture your special day. We are so happy for you! May God continue to bless you two and your future together.

With our love,

New Year Inspiration by Walt Disney

December 30th, 2011

New year. New possibilities. This time last year, we faced our first full year of being full-time photographers…and we had only 2 weddings booked.  Everything was uncertain.

New year. New possibilities.

This time last year, we faced our first full year of being full-time photographers…and we had only 2 weddings booked. 

Everything was uncertain.

Often we want to make our lives look so picture perfect – everything falls in its perfect place and perfect time.  Look how pretty our pictures show our lives to be!  But, as you live life…it can be so freakin’ messy. Chaotic. Uncertain.

That’s why I love the new year.  It’s a new start to look out to a scary but anything-is-possible for these next 365 days.  Every January, we have to push ourselves to dream again, to try again, to fail again, to get up again.

Know this for sure: If you’re going to pursue anything great in life, you’ll fail.  You’ll make mistakes.  You may not know what you’re doing half the time.  And, because many people would rather take the safe route” in life, you’ll be moving against the flow of traffic.  But how exhilarating a feeling it is to walk the other way!

“I DREAM, I TEST MY DREAMS AGAINST MY BELIEFS, I DARE TO TAKE RISKS, AND I EXECUTE MY VISION TO MAKE THOSE DREAMS COME TRUE.”

- WALT DISNEY

For this new year, we urge you.  Dream.  Then, work to make that dream come true.

dedication

We want to thank our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, from whom all blessings flow.  We wouldn’t be here today without His faithfulness and lifesaving love.

We also want to dedicate this post to everyone who made us believe dreams can come true.

Lastly, this post is for our precious baby.  We’ve dreamt and prayed so much for you and we cannot wait to finally hold you in our arms this August.

Have a blessed New Year everyone!

Courtney and Calvin | Chic Disneyland Engagement

the love story Courtney and Calvin go all the way back to junior high.  But they didn’t know it ’til college.

the love story

Courtney and Calvin go all the way back to junior high.  But they didn’t know it ’til college.

Apparently their worlds intersected since junior high.  They went to the same high school, then college.  But they didn’t meet ’til freshman year in college.  In fact, after they dated, Courtney watched some old high school videos and actually saw Calvin walking around in the background!  Small world.

It was love at first sight.  Four years later, Calvin proposed on their favorite place on earth.

the romantic proposal

December in Disneyland is just magical.  There’s just nothing like it around Christmas.  Calvin took Courtney to Disneyland for her birthday.  At the park, Calvin stepped away and handed Courtney an envelope that was labelled “Disney Challenge”.

Now, they’ve done scavenger hunts on previous dates so Courtney just thought it was just a fun game to play.

She went from clue to clue all around Disneyland and California Adventure.  Cast members even participated and gave her the next clue.

But once she reached her favorite ride, Toy Story Mania, she saw Calvin…down on one knee with this amazing custom ring box he designed:

Amazing proposal with her favorite movie next to her favorite ride at her favorite date spot…with her best man.  It was perfect.

the engagement

We fell in love with Courtney and Calvin from the first date.  We all share a love for Disneyland.  When we heard they were going to have their wedding there, we just about fainted.  It was seriously something on my [Drexelle] bucket list to capture a love story there.

Then, when we heard they wanted photography depicting Disneyland for adults – a CHIC Disney, we cried in happiness.

…OK there weren’t tears but I definitely jumped up and down (you know, inside).

We worked with our amazing stylist, Connie Kim, and this awesome couple to create all the perfect details to make a Disney engagement session LIKE NO OTHER.  We’re thankful to God for this awesome time and are happy to present this:

congratulations

Courtney and Calvin, we love you guys.  Seriously, it’s been such a blessing and amazing journey working with and getting to know the two of you.  We cannot wait ’til we meet next.  We’re so excited to work with you on creating your Chic Disney wedding!

on a personal note

Speaking of chic, have you heard of the Disney Princess Designer Collection?  GORGEOUS!  They have modern haute couture dresses designed for each Disney princess and I wish…WISH…they had these gowns for sale.  You know…just for some random…enchanted evening.

Anyhow, this AWESOME couple were so sweet to get me a surprise birthday gift:

Wouldn’t that gown just be perfect? *sigh*

And, by the way, did you know Disney bottled its own wine?  Courtney + Calvin were so incredibly wonderful to us and gave us one after the e-session.  We love you guys!
