Last year, while attending the Disney Social Media Moms conference, I won one of the conference raffles. I didn’t just win any prize, I won an in-room surprise package and a family photo session with a Disney photographer. Squee! The perfect prize for me. I have always wanted to have family pictures taken at Disney Boardwalk.
Nearly a year after I won my awesomesauce prize, we finally scheduled our session. I had grand plans for these pictures, planning the perfect coordinating family look. So what did we think of our experience with Disney Fine Art Photography & Video? Well, it was picture perfect.
Although I won the photo session, I was impressed at how affordable photos are through Disney. There are two packages available:
Mini Portrait Session $150
- 20-minute casual photo session
- All final images on a disc with copyright release
- Select from one of three Walt Disney World Resort locations
- Disney’s Polynesian
- Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
- Disney’s Beach Club Resort
Enhanced Portrait Session $350
- A one-hour Portrait Session with a Professional Photographer and Assistant
- Choice of locations around the Walt Disney World Resort
- Image retouching and artistic enhancements
- Website posting of images with slide show
- A soft cover 6″x 6″proof book
I won the Enhanced Session and elected to purchase the rights to all of the images prior to the session for $100. Best. Idea. Ever.
What the pictures don’t show you is that on the day of our family pictures baby girl was a basket case. My normally calm, sweet baby girl was a mess — flailing to the ground the way only a toddler can. But the photographer and her assistant were patient, kind and total professionals. They worked with us and managed to capture the best of my family. I cannot say enough nice things about the photographer (Amy) and her assistant (Joanna) who took our pictures.
If you are planning a trip to Disney, I highly recommend scheduling time with Disney Fine Art Photography & Video to capture your family memories. We will be repeat customers.
I will forever treasure this prize.
I won the photo session with Disney, with no requirement to post the pictures. But I love them so much, I couldn’t resist. All pictures taken by Disney Fine Art Photography & Video, however, I purchased the rights to the copyrighted images.
