We are so grateful to Claudia for making our big day so special and capturing so many beautiful photos for us to look back on and relive that day over and over again!

- stacy, 2019

One of the main reasons I loved her is because she asked ME what I was looking for vs telling me how it “should” be.

- meredith, 2019

Claudia's professionalism, personality, creativity and energy is what we loved about working with her. She was very easy to coordinate with and made us feel like we were her only client.

- Stacy, 2019

She integrated seamlessly with the family and guests and ended up more of a friend than a vendor by the end of the night.

- allison, 2017

She made us feel so comfortable that even my fiancé who is shy in front of cameras was enjoying himself, which makes the photos even more authentic!

- danielle, 2017

Not only did I love every single one of my pictures, her organizational skills and posing ideas were fantastic.

What it's like

From the very beginning of the experience, my goal is to make sure you have the fairytale wedding of your dreams! Before you've even chosen me as your photographer, I'll spend time asking you questions about what's most important to you, so I can tailor the experience to your day!

Once you've booked with me as your wedding photographer, the next step is to schedule your engagement session. This is an opportunity to allow me to capture some raw emotions, laughter and a ton of love. Plus, it helps me learn who you are as a couple and  for you to know me.  The session is like a sneak peek into your big day without having to think  about timelines. 

I'll make a timeline for your day based on your vision and priorities, so everything goes to plan. I'm a stickler for the details and will make sure everything is on time!

your vision is my mission

All my packages include a complimentary engagement session, because this is the best chance for us to really get to know one another!

At your session, I'll be able to learn your best angles and which poses suit you best. You two will get a chance to see how I work and get comfortable in front of the camera!

The best wedding photos I've taken have been with couples who've done an engagement session! Time is limited on a wedding day, so if you've already been warmed up to me beforehand, I'll be able to make your experience on your wedding day even better—which means you'll get more gorgeous photos in less time so you can enjoy your day together!

your engagement session

next

I'll arrive early on your wedding day to find the perfect photo locations, best natural light, and to make sure everything starts on time! On your wedding day, there will be many things happening at the same time.  For the most part, I like to remain unobtrusive to get the best photos.  On other times, I will be arranging and directing shots.

My goal is to turn all the real and raw moments into lovely photographs.
I like to think of myself as your wedding personal BFF.  I do everything I can to protect my brides from any negative clouds that could ruin your perfect day! I adapt to any situation, and I'll be ready to both take control of large groups, and also focus on the little details, like fixing your hair or dress to make sure you look picture perfect.

And at the end of the night, you'll probably see me dancing with my camera so that even your guests feel comfortable in the photos!

I'm a Florida Keys wedding photographer serving adventurous, romantic, nature- loving brides in South Florida and the Keys. 

No matter what kind of wedding you're having, my goal is to learn about what's important to you so I can capture the real, raw and all the happy moments in between during your wedding.

You have a unique love story, and I want to focus on capturing the people, places, and moments that are most meaningful to you. That's why a wedding questionnaire is emailed to my couples so that I can have all the details of each wedding day prepared. 

Wedding photography is not just about taking pretty photos, it is also about being in tune with the emotions unfolding during this magical moment in your life. You need someone you can trust to understand your vision and guide you through this beautiful, once-in-a-lifetime journey.

My husband and I are so happy that we chose Claudia Rios

Claudia and her team were beyond phenomenal. Her above and beyond services started way before wedding day. She would touch base constantly.  She could to help us navigate our destination wedding! The day of, we already felt like she was a friend we’ve known forever. She directed us with so much expertise and knowledge- I look at our photos and am just amazed at how natural we both look in all of them! Just what we wanted. We literally just had FUN with it! We laughed and enjoyed ourselves throughout the shoot and never felt overwhelmed or pressured. It was the best day of our lives!

Claudia's passion was contagious

We had Claudia do our engagement photos & wedding photos and they turned out beautiful. Claudia has an amazing eye for capturing photos that are soft, beautiful yet vibrant! Aside from her photography skills, she is also a warm, kind, positive & helpful person. We felt comfortable with her immediately and I was blown away by all the support she offered during the wedding planning process. She is organized & on top of all the aspects of the wedding day that you wouldn't think about.  Having great photos is one of the most important parts of a wedding and Claudia went above & beyond for us. Her photos speak for themselves - they are all beautiful & high quality.  I trusted her fully and she never disappointed. She is a wonderful human being along with being an amazing photographer.

Claudia was absolutely AMAZING!

We used Claudia for our engagement and wedding photos and she did not disappoint! Leading up to our wedding day, Claudia was a woman with a plan. She was very responsive to our emails, text messages, and phone calls. If we had a question she would answer right away and vice versa. On the day of the wedding, her and her team showed up and were ready to capture the magic! They made sure we were taken care of and were happy at all times. Claudia made sure we got all the pictures possible. The pictures came out to be the best pictures I have ever had!! Claudia is the best and I would use her again and again!!
