Fairy Tales – I absolutely adore them and as a photographer, I want to explore how brides can utilize familiar fairy tale stories and create modern wedding ideas!  For this 3rd Fairy Tale photo shoot I wanted to incorporate pinks and golds, tiaras and pink roses to simbolize Sleeping Beauty – add to that my big dream of creating a magical setting to shoot in that only a princess would love.  With the help of amazing friends my image came to life last weekend and I’m so excited to share with you my concept for modern Sleeping Beauty wedding details….sit back, relax and enjoy!!

We are fresh out of castles in Bakersfield, so the next best thing? Bring a bed and create a canopy and place it in the middle of a beautiful blossoming orchard!   It was so exciting to see a vision I had in my head come to life after a lot of hard work building/painting/hauling and having amazing friends help set it up and bring it to life!

What do you think?  Magical?

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…..
