Pumpkins turning into carriages, magic carpet rides taking us to a whole new world, and princes in disguise are just some of the things that make us collectively sigh. So when we saw these Disney-themed engagement shoots, we just about swooned. Check out the creative shoots below, and maybe you'll start wishing upon a star, too.
Lynnette and James's favorite movie is Up, so they tied in the whimsical details and elements from the movie to their engagement photo shoot. In case you're unfamiliar with the movie: The main characters, Carl and Ellie, were childhood sweethearts who had dreamed of going to Paradise Falls. When Ellie passes away before they could make the trip, Carl ties thousands of balloons to his house to fulfill their promise. James's grape soda badge and, of course, the house make special appearances!

For Sean and Kelly, two animators who fell in love at Disneyland, the Union Station in Los Angeles was an "almost too good to be true" location for their vintage Toontown-themed engagement shoot. After the photo session, they utilized their animation skills to add in the characters.

Remember when Alice fell down the rabbit hole? Who knew she'd emerged into a Tim Burton-styled engagement shoot! Alice in Wonderland is the movie that Erin says she'd take to a deserted island with her, and her fiancé Matt went along for the ride. It even started to snow during this shoot, so kudos to Erin for staying in character! Photo Credit: Lauren Brimhall Photography
