Once upon a time, there was a young woman in a hospitality program at a four year university who was a little lost. She wasn't quite sure what she wanted to do with her life when a school counselor suggested Disney could be the perfect place to start her career. She decided to make it happen then never looked back, and even started telling everyone she was leaving New Hampshire for California in six months, well before she had even applied for the job. And guess what!? That young woman was me! And, surprise - I got the job! I was accepted to the Spring/Summer 2009 Disney College Program. When I chose the position of a Photopass Photographer, I had no idea how much my life was about to change.

You may remember Emma and Connor from their midtown Manhattan engagement session this past spring. We spent an amazing, chilly afternoon exploring the city streets near their studio apartment. (Read about how they met unexpectedly and see their photos here!)
Fast forward to the Friday before Thanksgiving 2016, just as the sun began to set, when they became husband and wife. Over the last five years their closest friends and family members from coast to coast have surrounded, supported, and celebrated them. On November 18th, they all came together to share in the love of one of the happiest, most wonderful couples I have ever known. It was such an honor to witness and capture all the special moments throughout their romantic, glamorous wedding day, with just a touch of Disney magic.

There were so many stunning details which made Emma and Connor's wedding unique. They shared many laughs during their sunset unity sand ceremony. Cocktail hour featured an ice sculpture of the Enchanted Rose, along with themed signature drinks. One of the best men played guitar and sang Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" during their first dance. The most special detail was how much love you could feel!
Emma and Connor are meant to be. She is the Beauty to his Beast, he is all the books in her library. Congratulations to this happy couple!
