I’m so excited to share Mary and Robbie’s Disneyland engagement session with you! They have a love story that belongs in Disneyland. It was fated and absolutely magical. Mary lives in Southern California and Robbie lives in New Zealand. Which begs the question: how did they meet? Mary was doing a pub crawl in London and bumped into a stranger running up their stairs. Robbie was doing that same pub crawl in London. He was not the stranger that Mary bumped into. The stranger that Mary bumped into was, thankfully, one of Robbie’s friends. He saw them talking across the room. Robbie describes his feelings in that moment as knowing he had to go meet that beautiful goddess. Seriously. I’m not making this up. When Robbie saw Mary for the first time he thought she looked like a goddess. Mary was just as smitten.
These two beautiful people have spent every moment together possible since they first connected. They didn’t just have a fun conversation at a pub in London. They talked all night, and into the next day. And then they explored together as much as they could after that. International phone calls would have been pretty pricey. Thank goodness we live in the 21st century, and technology like Facetime can connect all of us. Add in a few international flights, and you’ve got yourself a couple who overcame long distance.
When Robbie proposed to Mary it came as a complete surprise to her. Robbie had done it all in secret. He had learned what kind of jewelry she liked through a clever game! They would go to stores and ask each other of all the jewelry in one case which piece would the other like best! Slowly but surely Robbie learned her style! He bought the ring almost TWO MONTHS before he popped the question. But he wanted it to be perfect. And it was. You can see those pictures here.
Mary and Robbie, thank you for trusting me to capture this part of your journey! I absolutely can not wait to see where your relationship takes you. I love these pictures from your Disneyland engagement so much and I hope you do too!
