Hiring an Outside Photographer for Your Disney Wedding: Capturing the Magic

Hiring an outside photographer for your disney wedding

Planning a Disney event is a magical journey filled with excitement and enchantment. Whether you’re celebrating a vow renewal, engagement/proposal at disney, wedding, or any special occasion, capturing those precious moments is a must. While Disney offers its own fantastic photography services, hiring an outside photographer can add a unique touch to your event and provide a personalized perspective on the magic unfolding.

Uniqueness and Personalization:

One of the key benefits of hiring an outside photographer for your Disney event is the opportunity to infuse your style into the photographs. Independent photographers bring their creative vision and expertise to the table, allowing for a customized and unique collection of images that reflect the essence of your special day. For instance, photographers like myself who own Portrayable Photography have successfully captured Disney events in the past, adding a personal touch to the pictures and making them more memorable.

Freedom of Choice:

Opting for an outside photographer gives you the freedom to choose a professional whose style aligns with your preferences. Whether you’re seeking a whimsical and fairytale-like aesthetic or a more candid and documentary approach, you can find a photographer who resonates with your vision and captures the moments just as you envision them. As one of my past Disney couple, Bianca and Mark, noted, “Hiring an outside photographer allowed us to choose someone whose style matched our vision perfectly. We were thrilled with the results and have cherished the photos ever since. Plus we knew we wanted certain locations for our portraits and knew that Kimberly was always up for anything we suggested. She wasn’t restricted to a corporate standard locations. Our first look was taken where he proposed to me at.” You can see their who wedding here.

Extended Coverage:

While Disney’s photographers do an excellent job of capturing moments, hiring an outside photographer allows you to extend coverage beyond the typical settings. Whether you’re hosting an event at a Disney resort, aboard a Disney cruise, or in a private venue, an independent photographer can document all aspects of your celebration.

Before hiring an outside photographer for your Disney event, it’s essential to familiarize yourself with Disney’s policies regarding external vendors. Ensure that your chosen photographer is aware of and adheres to Disney’s guidelines to avoid any complications on the day of your event. I know a lot of photographers who are shocked by the contracts and insurance requirements set by the Disney. I’m very familiar with that paperwork and know the staff as well.
