You don’t have to be one thing or the other: Steampunk infused Rustic styled shoot with Maple Shade Farms {Upstate NY Weddings}

This visual enticement will get your mind reeling with ideas! The creative genius of Abigail Wilson at Maple Shade Farms will blow your wedding idea mind.  We had chatted about pulling together a styled shoot about a year ago and this summer it finally came to life.

We locked in on the idea of a rustic wedding shoot at her farm with the an edgy twist.  We found our inspiration through the steampunk art form and away we went.

Metals and rustic features laid the ground work for this amazing shoot at the farm.  The best thing is, Abby can make an bride’s vision come to life and it’s quite awesome to watch happen.

Let us tell you the story of our rustic steampunk inspired wedding shoot.

A special thanks to Holiday Farm Biscuit Farm Co. for the amazing cake.

A huge shout out to Amy from 560 Salon and Spa

Before we go, we are excited to start making a move in our wedding photography business. We LOVE all weddings and our focus is always on our couples happiest moments! Shelly and I have started the transition slowly to purely rustic, chic and fabulous weddings located in the regions most precious farm and barn venues.  What does that mean? It means our little rustic hearts have a home and will be seen in more barns than traditional style venues in 2017.  This is our little secret until things truly get rolled out. But thank you for journeying with us this far.  In all things steampunk, rustic and beautiful weddings:
