Default Engagement Photos

Does anyone have any recommendations on engagement portraits? I've looked into a couple of photographers in the Orlando area and they seem really pricey and I don't have enough experience with Disney's photographers to know if I would like them.

Since I know that I want my bridal portraits in Magic Kingdom I don't know if I want to stomach that cost twice. I was thinking around Boardwalk would be really cute but I'm not sure. Anybody have an tips or suggestions? We are going in January and so I want to do them then. They could be in the parks or at the resorts, I'm just not sure what my options are.

Are you using Disney for your wedding day photography? I don't know what your price range is, but I highly recommend McKenzie Stewart, who shot both my engagements and wedding. She was an absolute dream to work with, reasonably priced, and our pictures are stunning!

Thank you for your response! I was planning on using Disney for wedding photos for the sake of convenience, but since I'm probably not going into the parks for engagement photos I wanted to shop around first.

We use Root Photography for our engagement photos, and we're using them for our wedding too. We got our engagement photos done at the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts.

We used Jason Angelini for our pictures. He wasn't too bad cost wise and we liked most of our photos.

I am gonna use Randy Chapman. He is really easy to talk to. Here is his info he was a Disney photographer before branching out on his own.

Our photographers included engagement photos in their package, but I traded them in for an extra hour on the wedding day.

We used DFAP for our engagement shoot in Epcot. I personally had a great experience and the photographer captured the essence of our relationship really well.

I'm loving Cricket photography too - we're hoping to do a session with her when we go down in December.
