Hanna + Alex :: Happily Ever After Engagement at Disneyland

Last Saturday I had the honor to photograph Hanna and Alex’s engagement in Disneyland and California Adventure.  How awesome is that!  When Hanna brought up the idea of shooting there, I was beyond thrilled.  Not only am I a huge Disney fan, but we would be returning to the place where Henry and I spent many of our date nights, and where he got down on one knee and awkwardly pushed a ring onto my finger.  I was very excited to capture another couple’s joy at the Happiest Place on Earth.

Hanna and Alex first met each other on school’s swim team.  Since then, Hanna has kept up with the sport, participated in 2010 Nautica Malibu Triathlon (finished 5th overall in her age group too!)  Her athleticism is so inspiring.  :-)  Alex has a really cool job with Disney where he gets to brainstorm new ideas for others to implement.  Henry’s jealous!  During our half-day photoshoot, we roamed both parks and had an amazing time together.  There were so many photo opportunities with all the colorful and fun backdrops that I felt once again like a kid set loose in a candy shop.  Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy (in Donald Duck’s voice), life is extra jolly when you hang out with the energetic and fun-loving Hanna and Alex!

OK, I better stop rambling now and show some images.  The first image below is one of my favorites. Hanna is absolutely glowing!
