    Wink Disneyland Engagement Photos

    Hello MiceChatters!

    The future Mrs. DubiousEndeavors and I have been talking about getting our engagement photos in Disneyland, since that is where I popped the question, and we are both Disneyland geeks. (I have been trying to get her to join, but she is currently a lurker).

    My question is, have any of you had your engagement photos taken at Disneyland? Do you need to notify the DLR that you will be taking your photos there for copyright purposes?

    Any info is appreciated! I know I can always count on y'all!

    Re: Disneyland Engagement Photos

    It is my understanding that Disney frowns on professional photography inside the resort (if you recall the recent ban on lenses larger than 6" long). Disney doesn't like the idea of a photoshoot monopolizing an attraction and possibly spoiling another guest's enjoyment.

    I should think that if you kept it as a stealth operation, seeming to be taking snapshots like any other visitor rather than elaborately posed photos, you'd be OK. As to copyright, I'm no lawyer but how would this be different than any other visitor taking photographs? Would the fact a professional photographer is involved (getting paid for his services and possibly keeping the negatives) muddle the concept?

    I don't have any experience, but I stumbled upon these two engagement sessions on a wedding blog I was looking at. Maybe you could get some ideas or inspiration from them.

    We had our engagement photos taken at DL and DCA by a friend. We didn't keep it a secret, but we didn't announce it either. We didn't encounter any problems. Have fun!
