When it’s time to channel your favorite characters for the photo shoot, nothing less than a Disney inspired engagement session will do!

Natalie and Bill are self proclaimed nerds, and brought their fun-loving spirit to our session!

I loved seeing how they channeled two different Disney love stories.

First they started out as Belle and the Beast, then a quick change revealed a mermaid named Ariel, and her Prince Erik!

So freaking adorable!!!

Get to know more about these two, and be sure to check out Natalie’s Beauty and the Beast inspired engagement ring!

Disney Inspired Engagement Session

How you two meet?
We work in the same building, but it’s a big building and you don’t always know everyone.
There was a flight outing to a Norfolk Admirals game.
We sat next to each other and immediately hit things off, and became instant best friends.
It was about a year later that we started dating.
It turned out we went to basic training and tech school together and had a lot of the same friends but never met.

What did you do on your first date?
Our first real date was at pirate golf in Williamsburg.
He lost and bought me ice cream at the dairy queen next door.

What are some of your favorite things to do together?
We love to dress up and go to comic cons together.
I’m the creative one, so he’ll tell me what he wants to do and I’ll make it.
I’ll either upgrade a halloween costume so I doesn’t look as cheap, or put together a costume myself.
When did you know he was the one?
I can just be my stupid, silly self around him.
Bill never judged me or made me feel bad for just being myself.

Tell Us Your Proposal Story?
We were in Atlanta with both our parents.
He took me to this kitschy restaurant with random stuff on the walls, his parents recommended it.
I love restaurants like that.
He had champagne brought to the table and the ring was in my glass.
Its cliché but it was perfect.

If you had to pick a word for your relationship, what would it be?
What are three dreams/goals for your marriage?

To keep having fun, build each other up and never make the other feel bad for just being themselves


Tell us what you’re looking forward to most on the wedding day.

We’re doing “Thriller” for the reception
