I had so much damn fun on this Disney World engagement!! It helps to have couples willing to explore and have fun and be themselves on shoots. I have lovely images of them being romantic and loving on each other, but also some funny images where they let their hair down and have a good time as we shot around the Magic Kingdom. Being the year of COVID-19 there were some challenges in shooting at the park. I tried to stay within their rules of wearing masks. There are some images of them wearing masks and some without. I’ll tell you how I got the ones of them without the masks.
To kick things off on this Disney World engagement, we started shooting as soon as we got on the mono rail heading to the Magic Kingdom. We were able to have masks off here as one of the park employees saw that we were shooting and gave us out own private monorail car. I love the mono rail cars, theres so many clean leading lines to play with for pictures. As soon as we got to the Magic Kingdom we took some pictures at the “Welcome” sign and then we went into the park.
As far as the rules go at Disney World, you have to wear your mask at all times, UNLESS you’re eating or drinking, or you’re in one of their mask free zones. On this Disney World engagement shoot, I utilized the mask free zones whenever I could. The pics of them eating churros and hanging out in front of the castle, we were in a mask free zone, a few feet away from Casey’s Corner which was closed. The other images around the park where they don’t have masks on, they were drinking fluids. Sometimes they would hide the bottle in strategic posing, and other times I photo shopped the bottles out.
After we shot at at the Magic Kingdom we went to the Boardwalk area outside of Epcot. Here my couple got one of those huge fun lollipops from one of the shops and we took some pictures. We had so much fun shooting all over the boardwalk. If you like this post you can read more like this one here.
