For the past three years I have been dying to photograph Dapper Day and I always seemed to have a scheduling conflict that kept me from doing so! Since I’m a wedding photographer this always seems to be the story of my life, but somehow this year I was FREE to photograph at the parks that weekend! I love photography. To me it’s not entirely an art form. I think it’s more a beautiful way to document a moment, a feeling or small sliver of your life. I have randomly found myself taking pictures of strangers at parks, museums and events to later having these beautiful photos and no way of getting them to their owners. Dapper Day was a dream come true in this sense!Read More
Things to do in the parks
If you're anything like me you absolutely love Disney, but find that the snack shop options are expensive and most of the time only offered in single sizes. When I found out you can mail Amazon deliveries to your hotel I was floored. NO MORE OVERPRICED SNACKS OR GROCERY STORE TRIPS IN FLORIDA! I simply add my regular list to my cart, format my address and ship it so it arrives about four to five days before I do! It's just that simple.Read More
I recently had a Magic Kingdom girl's day with @aliyah_burshan and we kicked it off with breakfast at Kona Cafe. This was easily the best part choice of our day!
Kona Cafe offers breakfast and dinner options and since I have had dinner there multiple times and loved it and was eager to try breakfast!

You booked your vacation, stayed on Disney property, set Fastpass setting alarms and 60 days out you logged on and BOOM, all the Flight of Passage (FOP) Fastpasses were gone.
Don't fear, I've been there. Multiple times actually. However, I've still ridden FOP! Here are the two ways I've done it...Read More
Over the past years I've always traveled with someone, whether it be a significant other, or friend, I've never travelled alone. But due to recent circumstances I found myself booking my first trip to Disney World alone. Solo. By myself.Read More
Since starting Cassell Tees I've met many, many people from the Disney Community - this may actually be my favorite thing about this job, now that I think of it, but anyway, I digress. I was recently privileged to work with the former Plane Crazy Button Club at a shoot and fell in love with the story behind The Brookhart Project.Read More
You're at Disney, it's sunny, everyone is excited and you're headed to the whole group's favorite ride... Plot twist. It has a 55-minute wait and no Fastpass becoming available for the rest of the day. What do you do? YOU GET IN LINE!Read More
I go to the parks a lot! So much so I don't want to take the time to repack each time so I keep one bag "Disney ready" at all times. So here is what I have in my bag!Read More
