    My son and his girlfriend are planning a surprise proposal at Disneyland next month or early July and I want to capture it with photos. Can I get a list of your approved disneyland photographers that I can reach out to check availability and cost? Thanks

    Greetings, Queen Shelley!

    I'm absolutely thrilled to roll out the royal carpet and dive right into your very first question here at planDisney! Your question about your little lovebirds' plans at The Happiest Place On Earth was a thrill for me to read since I consider myself to be a bit of a love expert too! I just love a good love story and I’m thrilled to join you as you start to plan!

    Let's kick things off with some inspiration for your proposal plans way with a few of my favorite tips.

    Now Shelley, when it comes to capturing those magical moments, anyone with a valid admission ticket and theme park reservation can snap away to their heart's content. It's quite common for couples to hire an outside photographer for the day. Just be sure to take a quick glance at the list of Prohibited Items at the Disneyland Resort to make sure that your photographer's gear complies. It’s also a good idea to check in with park officials beforehand —you might need a photography permit.

    And don’t forget about Disney PhotoPass! They can capture all kinds of precious memories around the theme parks. When my sister’s husband proposed a while back, he found a PhotoPass photographer nearby who was more than happy to capture the moment.  I always recommend getting the Disney Genie+ service as an add-on to at least one of your theme park tickets. Not only do you score free PhotoPass downloads all day long, but you can also instantly share them with your loved ones via the Disneyland Mobile App straight from your phone. 

    Now, onto another gem— Disney Weddings. They've got a team of professional love experts who can help your son plan the perfect proposal. Consider reaching out to explore the array of Magical Moments available at the Disneyland Resort. They can even provide you with a list of official engagement and wedding photographers to connect with.

    Congratulations again on orchestrating such a special moment, Shelley! I'm always here to help, and I'd love to see the amazing pictures you capture. Don't hesitate to keep me posted or reach out again if you have any more questions. Remember to take it wonder by wonder.

    Love is an open door,
