What can I say about Jennie + Darwin?? I will first start off with the fact that within the first ten minutes of meeting them I could see that they are definitely two pees in a pod, meant to be, and absolutely perfect together! Their favorite place to visit happens to be the happiest place on earth DISNEYLAND! I'm usually reluctant to shoot there, but I was up for the challenge and I am super stoked on how the images turned out! Plus, I got to spend a fun afternoon with these two awesomely-silly-amazing people!
I usually start out my engagement sessions with a little pep talk to the couple. I let them know that the first few photos always feel a little bit awkward, but then they'll feel more comfortable as we continue the shooting. I began the "pep talk" with Jennie + Darwin and the next thing I know Darwin has already swept Jennie up in his arms and laid a huge kiss on her, it was the perfect start to their session and a great way to break the ice!

These are amazing. I am a diehard Disneyland fan and was told by our photographer that this would not be possible. So to me, you accomplished the impossible in the most amazing way. Truly capturing the fun loving couple, the romance of the park, and the life of both as well. Looooooove them!!!!

ok. i've seen so many pictures of Disneyland engagements, but none like this. You really captured an unique portrayal of the couple and a one of a kind memory for them. That first shot is ridiculous. you continue to excite and rejuvenate my love of photography. LASTLY, i wanted to know if you love your radiopoppers better than Pocket Wizards and which kind do you have? (thanks in advance)
