Guys! This shoot has been in the works since the middle of December. In short, my good friend Katie O’ texts me one day back in December and says something along the lines of “you’re going to hear from a Daniel and Mario who have this amazing boutique farm venue I just visited”. Once the holidays settled down Kris Ann, Helene, Katie, Nate and myself headed out to the farm for some of Daniel’s paella, wine and dessert. The rest is history. I will say you never leave this place hungry! lol. But back to the shoot.. We assembled some of this areas best vendors for a fun and beautiful collaboration. From the talents of my wife (owner of Fleurtacious Designs for those of you who might be new to the blog) and her amazing floral skills to Angela’s Bridal and their spectacular gowns we couldn’t miss. Then you throw in Alexandria’s Salon who took Candace’s and Adam’s good looks a notch higher and then of course “the glue” Katie O’ helping put this all together and you have a killer shoot! M&D Farm is a special place my friends and I could not be happier to be the first to help show that in todays post. I want to thank Mario and Daniel for having us all out to the farm. I look forward to many more shoots, paella and fun times ahead with these guys. Now let the eye candy begin..


We’ll start with a few interiors..

The “M” & “D” of M&D Farm. Mario with his art work and Daniel in his domain (anything this man cooks is delicious).. Image captured by Big Joe.


Our bride Candace was perfection..

Adam here making it look easy..

No matter what direction you point the camera its just amazing…

I wanted to give you all an idea of the land. It was incredibly windy when we shot but we were able to grab a few aerial photos thanks to Big Joe’s drone. This place is 58 acres so these shots don’t even show it all…

Fleurtacious Designs with the amazing florals..

so pretty..

Gown #2 (all gowns were from Angela’s Bridal) might have been my personal favorite.. and shooting against the barn doors was perfection.


So. Freaking. Beautiful!!

These two images.. I love them. I mean I love every image in this blog post but these two.. c’mon!

And the light..

How about that bouquet? I love how Kris Ann from Fleurtacious Designs just got to create whatever she wanted here.. so fun.

Adam – can I borrow that suit dude?

This location on the property was an easy favorite. You feel like you’re in another country.

Favorite image from this set..

There are just so many spots on this property and they are all quiet stunning..

so fun.. this is the backside of the barn.. another beautiful courtyard..

Clearly my favorite photo.. If I had to describe M&D Farm with one image its this one… so I’ll end here.. until next time.

Props to everyone involved on this amazingly beautiful shoot. I had a great time collaborating with you all!
