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.

Hello, there...

Hello, there

You’ve been dreaming about this day since the moment you first fell in love...

I’m the girl who wants to capture the love, the joy, and the happy tears for you, forever!

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


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!

the wedding day


the process

- Elizabeth, 2017

We have been blessed to find such an exceptional photographer whose desire is to make the groom and bride feel like the most special people on the planet.

- 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.

- jenny, 2017

Claudia was a blessing even in the months before the wedding. She was super responsive to emails and texts, gave us amazing tips and help when need it.

- Kristen, 2018

Her spectacular photographs speak for themselves, while her customer service and infectious personality truly set her apart from others.

- 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.

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

to capture our love on our wedding day! She is so talented and takes such natural and beautiful pictures. We absolutely love all of the shots that she took of us! Claudia is such a sweetheart and really cares about each and everyone one of her clients. She listened to what we wanted and made sure our day went smoothly. All in all, we absolutely loved working with Claudia! You can tell from just talking to her that she loves what she does. Plus her amazing personality is infectious!

Claudia's passion was contagious,

and she definitely made us feel right at home with her. She is able to strike an impeccable balance of being energetic and passionate, yet kind, encouraging and professional. She went out of her way to make sure that the entire experience was amazing, and I cannot recommend her enough. Though the quality of her work speaks for her, she is definitely a package deal with her genuine and loving persona as well.

Claudia was absolutely AMAZING!

She helped me so much in the planning stages of our wedding, as I was across the country. She was always so helpful and professional and always got back to me right away. For the wedding, she was great, she worked so well with our family and kids, had a great outlook and attitude and was so accommodating! I would HIGHLY recommend Claudia to anyone looking for a wedding photographer! I cant say enough good things about her!
