Beauty & The Beast – A Fairy Tale Photo Shoot – Jessica Frey Photography

A Tale As Old As Time….

Jessica Frey Photography

Wow.  A few days ago, 4 car loaded with friends and props headed up through the rain to the Sierra mountains an hour east of Bakersfield…and had an adventure!  The weather called for 1.2 inches of snow and when we all arrived to the destination, it was magical to say the least to see the ground covered in white…and for the next 4 hours, it continued.  And continued.  And continued.  I’m pretty sure we shot through at least 4 inches of non stop sleet and snow!!

For those of you who saw the Snow White inspired shoot I did last month, here is my take on Beauty and the Beast!  Today’s blog is full of images from our “Fairy Tale” part of the photo shoot….and the main shoot – the wedding inspired one, will be coming to you on Monday AND Wednesday AND Freyday next week!  Check my facebook page for sneak peeks throughout the week though!

What you see here is a collection of items (outfits and props) from my house, from our model, Jessica’s house, and from good friends!  I can’t thank everyone enough for their help, carrying equipment, props, picking up items, dropping off items – and making both of these styled-shoots a success!  [Jessica, James, Pam, Dale, Amanda, Makenzie, Lauryn, Lauren, Laura, Tiffany Colleen, Sylvia, Stephanie, Jenae, Jerry and Shari]

We had an epic adventure as the snow and wind came down on us while Jessica & James assumed their characters 🙂

Enjoy this tale….

Teaching the Beast to read can be tough sometimes….

And last but not least…..Having fun playing in the snow!
