Toon Town Engagement Photos

I absolutely love seeing how different couples use their engagement photos to really showcase them as a couple. So, with Sean + Kelly both being animators here in LA, they knew they wanted to incorporate that into their photos. Sean + Kelly actually fell in love at Disneyland (you can read his super sweet story about that here) – almost too perfect for these two lovebirds as Sean worked on movies such as Shrek and Madagascar, and was even nominated for an Annie Award (equivalent to an Oscar in the animation world) earlier this year!

They decided they wanted to do a vintage themed engagement session at Union Station here in LA, photographed in a way that they could later animate various characters into for their Save the Date Invitations. How fun + perfect for them! Kelly + Sean rented vintage costumes and each set-up required working closely with their photographers – the talented Callaway Gable duo – to allow them space to later draw in the characters. It kind of reminds me of the movie, Who framed Roger Rabbit?
