    Hello, Me and my partner are eloping in Florida this October and would like to book the capture your moment package to have some photos in front of the castle, we will be in smart/casual attire, not full wedding attire would this be acceptable?

    Hi there Fiona, and a warm wedding welcome to planDisney!

    As someone who had a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding at Walt Disney World Resort last year, I'm glad that you've both chosen to head here to celebrate this very important time in your lives! It sounds like you're aware that couples looking to have their photos professionally taken by Disney Fine Art Photography in the Magic Kingdom Park must have their wedding planned through Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons or look into alternative options to commemorate the occasion:

    • One of the policies listed for this experience does make it very clear that wedding attire is not permitted, but from the sounds of it your plan to sport smart/casual looks should be acceptable. From my observations of other couples who have had their photos taken as well as our own personal experience booking this following our wedding week, a fair number of them do take the opportunity to dress nicer for their session. When I inquired about what exactly counted as "wedding attire" (especially for someone who isn't wearing a dress), the Cast Members let me know that they can advise you on whether you're wearing anything unacceptable as you check in ahead of your session time.
    • A few things that I personally recommend include not only aiming for the earliest possible time slots in the morning for a chance at having fewer fellow guests in the background of your shots, but also booking back-to-back sessions to ensure that you have more time and flexibility for your locations. Purchasing Memory Maker is also something that we found to be incredibly valuable in being able to access all of our shots shortly after we had finished with our photographers.
    Having romantic photos set against the backdrop of Cinderella Castle is definitely a great way to celebrate this milestone, but I also highly recommend checking out online resources such as the Ever After Blog and Disney Wedding Podcast for some inspiration for the week of your elopement as well as connecting with fellow DisBrides in communities online for other tips and suggestions on details or experiences you can add in. This can include other bookable activities to enjoy together from the Enchanting Extras collection or even things like in-room surprises and special dining experiences across Walt Disney World Resort. I invite you to come back to planDisney again soon Fiona, if you'd like any other tips or ideas on making your wedding week here in Florida extra special!

    Wishing you both all the best as you head towards your Happily Ever After this year!
