Shannon and Tim were married on the 21st of September, 2012. This couple is very special to me as they are actually very good friends of mine. Shannon and Tim share something very special with my husband and I, we are both couple straight from the DIS boards. This simple connection has been something that has brought us together and I am so happy to share their story.
Jessica and David got engaged on the 14th of December in 2011 at Walt Disney World during one of the most magical events that Disney puts on, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. How does an engagement like this happen? Well I asked the couple and this is what they told me....
The couple traveled around the United States for 4 weeks in the month of December that year. Dave had originally planned to ask Jess to marry him in New York City. They would be in the Big Apple for Christmas and New Year's and this seemed like the most magical time to do it. However, the most magical place on Earth chaged Dave's mind and the night of the Christmas Party while they were sitting at Swan Boat Landing (the location for Magic Kingdom weddings for those that don't know) Dave got down on one knee and asked Jess to spend the rest of her life with him. She obviously said yes and now less than a year later they made their way back to Disney World and had engagement pictures taken.
The couple will tie the knot on October 3rd of 2013 and the best part is that we get to share the journey with them. The couple not only chose Randy for their engagement pictures but for their wedding as well. The wedding will take place at the Swan & Dolphin resort at Crescent Terrace. They will follow it up with an intimate reception at Il Mulino, a restaurant inside of the Swan.
The engagement shoot took place at Disney's POP! Century resort. The reasons couples choose different resorts vary but for this couple it was a more sentimental reason. The resort they stayed at on their engagement trip was Pop so to them it only made sense to do it there. Another aspect of Pop for the couple is that it is just so different from hotels down under.
To add a little more Disney flair the couple bought Mickey Mouse balloons to use in the shoot and they really made the pictures POP! pun most definitely intended.
Disney is very important to the couple. Not only did they share a love for Disney movies before but now that they got engaged at Disney World the magic of Disney has infused its way into their lives forever. To the couple Disney is the essence of happy. They have always had such a great time when they visit Disney World and it helps them stay young at heart. I think this was the true goal for Walt Disney, he wanted to provide a place where adults and children alike could share in the magic.
The couple loved working with Randy because he was so easy going and really helped them get comfortable. Randy also had a good time with the couple he loves working with his out of the country couples. It always gives him the opportunity to learn new things. The couple was kind enough to bring Randy a little gift all the way from the land of Koalas which he now proudly displays!
Jess and Dave I hope that you have a wonderful time planning the wedding and we can't wait to see the pictures from the big day. I hope you enjoy the rest of your preview and congratulations from your American friend.
For all of Randy's fans, brides, couples and families my name is Teresa Delgado. I am a Disney Bride and also a Randy Bride. Randy photographed our engagement session, wedding and bridal portraits. It was an amazing pleasure working with him and over time we really got to know each other.

I am an internet blogger/journalist/podcaster and while the majority of my talents lie in the world of nerd/geek fandom I also found I had a passion for weddings, brides and romance.
There are many questions I know clients may have, such as what qualifications do you have to write on this blog? I have been running my own blog/website for 2 years it is strongly focused on things like Star Wars, Disney, Harry Potter and other pop culture things. I also have added a podcast to that website that currently has 4 episodes with many more to come. In addition to this as of this summer I have become part of the journalistic staff for two Star Wars fansites, The Star Wars Report and Jedi News UK. As for weddings I just went throught the year long process of planning my own Disney wedding and I know what Brides/Couples go through. I know what it means to have that special day and I also know what it means to have your story out there to share with the world. You can follow along with my Disney Romance and Disney Wedding as well online via our website.
Many of you may be wondering how I ended up here on a wedding photographer's blog? Quite simply Randy asked me to come and write for him and I of course could not say no the man that has become more than my photographer, he has become my friend.
Another question I know many people are probably wondering is how can I be of service to you? My goal in writing the blog is to be of service to all the couples and families that Randy photographs. I want to be able to give you more than just your prized pictures posted on the site. I want to bring your story to life. My goal is to supplement the pictures with a few words here and there so that when you share your blog feature with family, friends or your internet world they can feel like they really truly know you.

Anything else you would like to share
I will email you back within 24 hours and we can discuss your story and what high points you really want to share. Couples that have used Randy for engagement pictures and are using him for their wedding, I would love to feature your engagement shots so that I can also feature you and provide an update once your wedding date comes. In addition couples/families that used Randy in the past and are planning on using him in the fututre for an anniversary or family shoot please contact me so I can feature your original shoot and your new shoot once it occurs.
I am looking forward to this opportunity to share your stories with the world and I hope all of your dreams come true.
