When Russell and Heather approached us about photographing their engagement session at Give Kids the World, photographer Michael jumped at the idea! The newly engaged couple volunteer at the nonprofit resort multiple times a week and fell in love with the place, its mission, and the people who work there.
This engagement session was particularly close to Michael’s heart as he stayed there with his family over eighteen years ago. Before the engagement session, Russell and Heather took Michael around the property and showed him what has changed over the years! As you can tell, the colorful buildings and play structures were a perfect backdrop for the photos! The three acted like kids in a candy store as they rode around on the carousel, splashed each other in the water park and even took Mayor Clayton’s carrot car out for a spin!
We even did the impossible by getting a famous Steven Miller Photography “star” photo during the daytime! Each child that stays at the resort has a golden star placed inside the castle where it will never be taken down! Which means, Michael’s brothers star makes a cameo in one of our personal favorite photos from the session!
Thank you Russell and Heather for that awesome opportunity down memory lane and we cannot wait for your wedding later this year at the Buena Vista Palace Resort!
