The happiest place on earth? Most definitely. Even more so, now that I’ve recently discovered that Disneyland sells chimichangas. Because if there’s anything that could make such a happy place happier, it’s DEEP FRIED BURRITOS.

But this post is not about food, this post is about love. And Leah & Matt are filled to the brim with it! They are so sweet and laidback, and I adore their interactions together. The cherry on top? They love Disneyland just as much as I do :)

Sidenote of awesome: When I first met with them, Leah informed me that their wedding will have a woodsy fantasy theme, filled with bright colors, moss, mushrooms, and other whimsical details – “sort of like Avatar”, she described. LE SWOON.

How was your weekend? Mine involved some good food (thanks to dineLA at FIG) and a triple-header, OC/LA/Long Beach, whirlwind engagement session extravaganza.

But! It turned out to be a breeze, because (as you can see below) these amazing couples make my job TOO EASY.

More to come soon!

{ Van + Hai | Disneyland Engagement }

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

Fact: I take the phrase “The Happiest Place on Earth” not as a slogan, but as the cold hard truth (second only to “wherever there are cupcakes”, but that would make an awkward amusement park theme). And I could argue the Disneyland skeptics til the end of time – that singing animatronic pirates and pastel-colored rides and bundles of balloons and yummy turkey legs (and snow at Christmastime, snow!) outweigh the crowded, expensive side of things. So I was more than a bit excited for Van & Hai’s engagement session at Disneyland! We traveled from land to land and I got to photograph an amazingly happy couple in a fantastically happy place.

I would say that the positive vibes of Disneyland are infectious and therefore brought joy into the photos, but the truth is that it was the other way around – Van and Hai are some of the sweetest, warmest people I have ever met and they bring the happy with them wherever they go :) I feel truly blessed to have met them and loved photographing them in a place that holds some of their favorite memories!

I really love the soft pastel colors we found in this little corner:

Really adored Van’s stylish outfits!

I leave you with a quick shot Hai took of Van & I. I generally like to stay on the other side of the lens, but when Hai asked to snap one of us together, I couldn’t miss an opportunity to pose with such a sweet client-turned-friend! :)
