{Engagement} Leanza & Remi

Welcome Kristina, but her friends and family call her Bumby, which is why her photography business is Bumby Photography, LLC. She is a wedding, engagement & boudoir photographer located in the Orlando, FL area and will travel worldwide. Bumby has 3 crazy boys in her life including her husband, Travis, and two boys Maverick and Raylan.

From Bumby "I met these two high school sweethearts last year when they modeled as the "bride & groom" for a styled shoot which you can see more of here on Southern Weddings. (Make sure you go see this gorgeous winter themed styled shoot it had me fooled since I thought it was their real wedding!) Remi flew from Pennsylvania just for the photo shoot. They hadn’t seen each other in months and their expressions were so sweet and genuine! The blanket they are wrapped in was made by the bride’s grandmother."
Now onto this magical surprise proposal of Leanza and Remi! Bumby tells their fairy tale engagement story: "Remi contacted me a week before and asked me to capture the moment. Leanza and him have been trying to go to Disney together for years and each time they get ready to go they either get rained out or plans get cancelled. This time not only would it be their first trip but also a special one they will never forget. So plans were made and Remi flew in to surprise Leanza to visit for a week and said he was going to take her to Disney and nothing was getting in their way. So that day luckily she was so excited she told Remi “I am going to wear a pretty dress and do my make up because I am going to take a photo with all the Princesses” Remi said “Ok!” So he dressed a little nicer than you would going to Disney since she was all dolled up in her red dress. This made the moment even better.

The proposal: Remi and I chose to do it right after the show Dream with Mickey which took place right in front of Cinderella’s castle. After the crowd cleared is when he would do it. During the show Leanza was smiling, laughing and dancing with excitement and had no idea. Once the show was finished they hung around and waited for the crowd to clear. Remi told her he wanted to get a selfie in front of the castle. When it was pretty clear and I text him the go ahead he took one more selfie of them and grabbed Leanza’s hand and got down on one knee. She was not expecting it and was totally caught off guard. She of course said yes but she was standing there in shock. Leanza’s has always loved the princesses and getting engaged in front of Cinderella’s Castle was totally a dream come true for her. Remi just left for deployment so they will marry when he comes home next year." To see more photos from their engagement click here.
