Ashley and Steve currently live in Chicago but they have a long history with Disneyland. Steve grew up just around the corner from the park and he and his dad would visit daily after school, just for a couple of hours, and he knows the park like the back of his hand. This adorable couple has been together since high school and their first trip to Disneyland together was part of a marching band trip. They each have very fond memories of Disneyland and Happiest Place on Earth is so important to them that it will actually play an integral role on their wedding day, as well. So, it was only fitting that their engagement session take place there, too.
I was excited to meet Ashley and Steve at the park and the three of us spent a couple of hours running around the park and finding nooks and crannies for making photos in. Thanks for the fun time, guys – can’t wait for your wedding next year!
As we were walking in the park, Ashely pointed out a bandstand and explained their band performed there on their first trip to Disneyland together. So, naturally we had to use it as a backdrop!
Ashley and Steve brought with them a copy of one of their favorite photos together that was taken inside the ‘O’ of the California Adventure sign. They asked me to recreate them for it, which I was happy to do, but I also wanted to play with the curve of the ‘C’ in the sign. I liked the way both turned out I sort of wish we would have played with each letter! Next time, guys. ;)
