Troy & Alexis
There's a reason why they call Disneyland the "Happiest Place on Earth", when Troy and Alexis asked if JJ and I would photograph their engagement session there I was beyond stoked! Now, this wasn't just a "Hey, we love Disneyland."
Rewind a few years ago to when Troy and Alexis just started dating. Alexis went on a school trip to Disneyland, she didn't know a lot of people and was kind of bummed the whole trip. She was texting Troy photos of her in front of different theme rides and was wishful that he would be there. Troy quickly responds to her text with a photo of him in front of the Matterhorn. She immediately text him back saying there was no way that photo was real. He said, "Well, come find out for yourself." Sure enough, Troy drove up the night before just so he could make her trip more enjoyable. Alexis knew that day, sharing a milkshake in a booth at Flo's V8 Diner, that she was in love with him.
Fast forward to this last year, they graduated from school, received jobs in California, and became annual pass holders at Disneyland (That is MY American dream :D). Troy knew that he wanted to propose to Alexis at the diner in the same spot, they were headed over there and someone just so happened to be in their booth. He scrambled to find a spot but finally popped the question.
Double fast forward to their engagement session and it was an absolute BLAST! I mean, its freaking Disneyland and I get to photography two people that are infatuated with each other at the happiest place on earth the whole day?! Pinch me, I must have been sleeping!
I'm so excited for Alexis and Troy and we're so thankful that we got to be there and truly enjoyed spending the day with them. Plus, we obviously have big expectations for their wedding now ;)
