To say I'm behind on blog posts is an understatement! Tyler and I went to Disneyland at the beginning of July to celebrate Pixar Fest and I ended up really behind on editing. After realizing just how unhappy I was at my last job, I sat down and focused all my spare time towards finding a company I would love. Now I'm settled into my new role and ready to go! Unfortunately that means releasing a bunch of summer content as Seattle starts to get rainy and dark at 5 pm but I really don't want any of these photos to go to waste. I thrive in summer anyway so if I end up skipping fall and winter all together I don't think I'll end up disappointed.
Disneyland has got to be one of the most photogenic places on the planet, which is why I always love to look back on the colorful scenes from my trips. I especially love the aesthetic of historic Main Street USA, but its placement at the entrance of the park leading up to the castle makes it difficult to take photos without tons of other people popping in and out. However, if you know where to look you can find some cute little corners that end up being a little quieter and perfect for a photo op.
Some of the shops for instance have gorgeous wallpaper and tiled floors. If you don't want to zigzag through them all, I recommend the candy shop as your starting point. The Jolly Holiday has lovely little yellow floral tables and sweet baked goods for a seated / food shoot. Though my absolute favorite quiet spot on busy Main Street has to be this little florist's cart parked in an alleyway between shops! There are several tables for resting and eating, but with a "dead end" leading to a cast entrance and locker area there usually isn't a ton of foot traffic. Plus the flowers are artificial, so you can celebrate spring regardless of the season!
Do you have a favorite photo spot along Main Street? Shoot me a DM on Instagram, I'd love to hear your recommendations before I head back for Christmas at the parks!
