Beauty and the Beast Inspired
Karrisa and Jimmy were inspired to try a real-life Beauty and the Beast photo shoot with their daughters, in preparation for their upcoming 2017 wedding which will have a similar "enchanted forest" theme, slated to take place at Seven Springs in August. I knew my good friend Rose Angel, from Design By Occasion would be able to help me style the props, along with Karrisa's creative help and the items I already have in my studio. The three of us put our heads together and came up with this amazing shoot! Karrisa wanted to use a white rose instead of the famed single red rose under glass, to symbolize their upcoming wedding. She also wanted to include their two daughters, who were very excited about it as well since they've seen and love the movie. If you look closely, you'll be sure to find the characters of the movie on the table! Mrs. Potts, Cogsworth, Chip, and Lumiere were all present for the "Be Our Guest" photo shoot. We also added a few wedding elements, a two tiered cake and the champagne flutes that Karrisa and Jimmy will use next year at their wedding. Their outfits were inspired by the maroon jacket that the Beast wears in the movie, with the remaining outfits just their everyday fun/casual family style. I hope you love the shoot as much as we did, and find inspiration to try your own enchanted love story photo shoot as well!
