Root Photography, just look at Lukyloo's signature slide show to see their gorgeous pictures. Their blog also showcases their talent.

Another shout out for David and Vicki Arndt! We loved that they worked at Disney and know the property well! Also, they offer a 15% discount for Disney weddings! They have a FB page if you want to see their work!

Thank you! I'm going to start checking these out. I really wanted to possibly get video too but Disney's cost I felt was astronomical. We are going to start looking at other options. We'll make a decision late october. I am getting married on a Monday in February so I dont think hiring someone 3-4 months out will be a huge mess if we decide to drop Disney photography.

We were disappointed when we found out that when we booked our Jan 2014 DFTW we couldn't use the Roots for our DP at Epcot. I really didn't want a different person taking the pics at the end of the night after having the Roots all day.

We are really excited that the rules changed and already added the extra hours onto our package with Root Photography.

Thanks Disney for listening to peoples requests.

David and Vicki Arndt!!!! They are absolutely incredible people to work with. So easy going and they capture great shots full of personality not poses

Photo Cost for Arndt

How much do David and Vicki Arndt cost??? Can someone please give me a cost for them to do your photo? What did you pay them? Thanks.

Does anyone know if this means you still have to forfeit the disney photography in your package if you have an outside photographer?.
We're having an escape wedding and we're thinking of having randy chapman (we're meeting him this week) for the ceremony then using our disney photography for our DP. But can we now ask randy to do it all but have disney as a second photographer?
I'm only asking as we want the MK shoot and I thought you had to use disney photography for the wedding to have this?
