Destination engagement shoots are growing in popularity and for good reason – they’re oftentimes gorgeous! Plus, it’s just one more reason to travel with your sweetie. Hana and Mike call L.A. home, but planned a destination wedding in Orlando, Florida at Disney World. The couple mixed up traditional engagement shoots by opting for a pre-wedding jaunt with their photographer.
“We decided to shoot at the destination wedding location in Florida [just before the wedding] because we wanted to use the same photographer for both our engagement session and wedding day photos so she could work her magic,” recalls Hana. “This not only helped travel costs, but most importantly, we wanted to shoot locally where our photographer is from and most familiar. She knew when was the best time of day to take photos and all the secret spots to take our outdoor photos.”
The couple served as fun subjects and truly captured the fun and lighthearted nature of Disney World. Hana and Mike captured their Florida destination with not only photos in a private orange grove, but on the boardwalk of Disney. While doing your destination engagement shoot the day before your wedding isn’t conventional, it does serve a logistical purpose. It will also capture the two of you right before you walk down the aisle and are in high spirits.
Hopefully this adorable couple has helped to inspire you to get creative when it comes to your engagement session. Keep in mind that an e-session is just one more way you can embrace and share your chosen destination with the world!
