Disney Inspired Wedding Photos: Whitby Castle Fairytale Wedding Photography

February 23, 2020

When a couple decides to marry at Whitby Castle wedding venue – you instantly assume Fairytale wedding photography. Therefore, the couple may be obsessed with Disney. Mr and Mrs Prinz (no pun intended …jk) decided to have a fairytale wedding at the dreamy castle wedding venue in Rye, NY. Certainly, they got engaged in Walt Disney World, so no wonder!? My favorite moments of their wedding day were all the first looks. For example, the bridesmaids and the father-daughter moments.  Keep scrolling to see the fairytale wedding photography from their special day at Whitby Castle!

Behind the Scenes: Whitby Castle Fairytale Wedding Photography

The process of wedding day photography is quite fun! I will walk you through how I photographed the Whitby Castle wedding day.

First, I start the day with Uptime energy drink to keep me energized throughout the 10+ hours on my feet. Next, I guide the couple into appealing, yet natural poses and direct them where to stand and things to do to get them being theirselves. Then, anytime the bride’s mother was struggling over buttoning up her daughter’s fairytale wedding dress by David’s Bridal – I stepped in to assist with the process. Not only did I have tissues ready for crying moments after the first look between bride and her father; I also touched up makeup and prepped the wedding dress during portrait sessions at the Whitby Castle. Most importantly, I follow a shotlist and timeline throughout the wedding day so I don’t miss an important moment to the bride and groom.


Getting Ready Moments before Whitby Castle Wedding

Mrs. Prinz got ready at her parent’s house where she grew up. Across the street was the church she went to growing up and got married in! Meanwhile the bride opted for a first look moment with her wedding party once she dressed in her fairytale wedding dress. How wonderful is that? Also check out her father’s first look below, above all,  it was my favorite moment of their wedding day!

She and her team are the perfect balance of professional, personable, and FUN, and my entire family and bridal party agreed that they were an absolute joy to work with! She made taking photos a fun, exciting time of the day (music included of course) rather than something too formal. Miranda and Verity went above and beyond to get just the right photo and everything they did made it so clear to us how passionate they were about capturing our special day.

Fairytale Wedding Ceremony at St Benedicts Roman Catholic Church near Whitby Castle

St Benedicts Roman Catholic Church was very laid back. They had multiple locations that me and my 2nd photographer can photograph from. For example,  birds-eye spot and up near the alter. In other words, we successfully were able to capture many perspectives, like when the groom saw his bride for the first time in her fairytale wedding dress. It was all a dream and went smoothly!

Miranda gave us such an amazing, unforgettable gift – the ability to completely relieve the happiest day of our lives through these photos. She somehow captured our pure joy, laughter, excitement, and nerves in this collection, and every time we look at the photos we relieve those feelings.

Whitby Castle Wedding Formal Photos and Fairytale Wedding Reception Photography

Whitby Castle is a fairytale wedding destination for ceremony, receptions, and getting ready in the bridal suite. Not to mention, the portraits around the golf course and front of the fairytale wedding venue were the best places for portrait photography. I have photographed at this wedding venue a few times and this is still one of my favorite wedding venues in New York because I love the Disney fairytale wedding vibes. Mr & Mrs Prinz rented a trolley from Top Class Limo – isn’t it adorable for wedding photography? Spin Doctor Entertainment killed it all night during the wedding reception – everyone from grandparents to the kids made their way for dancing. I even got down too once he played Cardi B hit “I like it like that”.

Words cannot describe how AMAZING Miranda Suess is!! Choosing Miranda of Suess Moments as our wedding photographer was hands down one of the best and most important decisions we made. She has an incredible talent for capturing special moments and emotions that truly come to life in her photos.

I discovered Miranda on Instagram and was thrilled when I saw that she had done a shoot at our wedding venue! From our first phone call, we immediately clicked and I knew I would just love working with her. When we took our engagement photos I was completely obsessed!! We were so comfortable with her taking our photos and felt completely at ease. Miranda truly captured the happiness and complete bliss that we were feeling in each photo she took. These Central Park photos are absolutely gorgeous and I can’t get enough of them!! By then we could not wait to have Miranda photograph our wedding day.

She and her team are the perfect balance of professional, personable, and FUN, and my entire family and bridal party agreed that they were an absolute joy to work with! She made taking photos a fun, exciting time of the day (music included of course) rather than something too formal. Miranda and Verity went above and beyond to get just the right photo and everything they did made it so clear to us how passionate they were about capturing our special day. When we finally got the gallery from our wedding day, we were completely blown away.

Miranda gave us such an amazing, unforgettable gift – the ability to completely relieve the happiest day of our lives through these photos. She somehow captured our pure joy, laughter, excitement, and nerves in this collection, and every time we look at the photos we relieve those feelings. Beyond the fact that she is an incredibly talented artist who produces gorgeous photos, she Miranda has a true gift of capturing special moments and that become our greatest memories. Thank you Miranda, I cannot wait for you to give this special gift to so many others.
