I am so excited to share Missy and Mike’s beautiful engagement session at Disney’s Aulani Resort in Hawaii!!
Mike and Missy met through online dating 3 years ago. Missy’s tagline on her dating profile was ‘I’m looking for my partner in crime’, his initial message to her was ‘Do you make a good getaway driver?!!
How freaking cute is that!!!
She knew then he had a great sense of humor and was able to joke around and make her laugh, which has always been super important to Missy. They chatted a bit online and realized they both had mutual interests when it came to TV, politics etc, AND were both originally from the East Coast making them LA transplants. They both also noticed (thanks to this dating app) that they frequented a lot of the same stores like Walmart, Wendy’s etc and decided to go on a date after a few weeks of talking!
And after Missy had reached out to me to book some content photos while here was in Hawaii, little did she know, her boyfriend would also reach out to me, to plan her surprise proposal on her birthday!
And of course, after planning, texting, scoping out the perfect location at Disney’s Aulani Resort lagoon, I was in hiding, and Mike walked Missy down to watch the sunset, got down on one knee, and asked her to marry him!
Of course, she said YES!!!!
A few days later, we all met up again at sunrise, to a beautiful empty lagoon, to capture their “official” engagement photos!!!!
I mean, I can’t even deal with just how beautiful this morning was, how stunning Missy is, and how in love these two are! I am so excited about their Disney Wedding next year at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion! It’s going to be so magical!!!
