It appears my love of Disney and photography are combining again for a 3rd installment of Fairy Tale Photo Shoots!  Snow White, check.  Beauty & the Beast, check.  With the absolutely beautiful pink almond orchards in bloom I knew I had to utilize their backdrop for another fairy tale day – and this time it’s Princess Aurora, or Briar Rose, or you may all know her best as Sleeping Beauty!  I’m so excited to share with you the first part from our Fairy Tale shoot and you’ll want to come back on Wednesday to see some bridal/wedding magic!

Thank you to Jordan & Cam who took on the role of prince and princess for the day, to Ladies & Gents Bridal for loaning us this gorgeous pink gown, thank you to my dear friends the Shigamatsus for helping with all the props and set decor, thank you to the Etcheverry’s for allowing me to take over a few aisles of your orchard, to Central Park Antiques for going allowing me to rent their beautiful spinning wheel, and to my husband for continuing to support me through all my fairy tale obsessions icon wink Sleeping Beauty   A Modern Day Fairy Tale Photo Shoot  So sit back and enjoy the magic as the story unfolds…..
