When taking family photos outside during the daytime, turn on your camera’s flash. Your camera will default to the flash being off (if you’re using auto-mode) because of the light levels present during the daytime hours, but portraits of people can sometimes contain unflattering shadows on your subject’s face if you don’t use the flash. Daytime flash for portrait photos fills out these shadows and creates a more visually pleasing image!

My fiancee, normally being a t-shirt and jeans gal, has me on the ball to take advantage of this situation to possibly buy her some nicer and, likely, more comfortable clothing for our honeymoon. So, do you think you could tell me where Sarah’s dresses come from?


Ahh…the number 2 question we receive via email (after “what kind of camera does Tom use?”) is where does Sarah buy her dresses. There is no succinct answer to that. All over the place. To save ourselves a lot of time typing redundant emails over the years, we’ve made this page: Where Sarah Shops.

To answer some other similar questions: yes, dresses are more comfortable than other park attire. No, it’s not an “issue” getting into or out of attractions when wearing them.

If you have Disney-related questions for us, please post them on our Facebook page!

We hope you enjoyed this issue of The Disney Tourist Blog News. We’re looking forward to refining this concept and adding new segments in the coming weeks. If you have any suggestions for “article” ideas, please leave them in the comments.
