This whimsical fairytale styled shoot comes to us from Claudia Rios Photography, based in Homestead, Florida! Here’s more about the shoot and the inspiration behind it from the event planner:

When the planner becomes the model (and yes, it was predetermined) there’s only one way to go and that’s all out! Not only did I incorporate the love of my life, Martin, but also our Fluffiest Peanut The Pom, Florida’s Beautiful Beaches, and of course, sparkly diamonds.

See more after the cut!

Martin and I met the Old School Way. It was a blind date where I didn’t even know I was being set up! I guess it was love at first sip of Gin & Tonic for he and I because we’ve been together ever since and he even WILLINGLY volunteered to be the beast for this style shoot! He truly a blessing and my rock.

Beauty And The Beach is a take, of course, on Beauty And The Beast but also incorporating something wonderful that not every place has THE BEACH. We strategically approached each vendor because their own unique flare which was added to each and every scene and I can honestly admit that, as a planner, I wouldn’t have planned it any other way!
