The Barn at Blystone Farm celebrates with an autumnal photo shoot that blends femininity and masculinity.
In honor of The Barn at Blystone Farm’s first birthday, event coordinator Tyler Toles teamed up with Lucretia Wildermuth of Through the Looking Glass Photography to style this autumn-themed photo shoot with elements meant to appeal to men and women alike.
“Fall is my favorite season,” Toles says. “[Because] it was the one-year anniversary of us opening The Barn at Blystone Farm, I wanted to showcase some of the amazing people that we worked with this year.”
The inspiration for the shoot, he says, was based in classic literature and unique décor elements that appeal to both masculine and feminine aesthetics. “The cigar and bourbon bar is something that more and more people are inquiring about, so I thought, what better way to tie in all the masculine undertones?” Toles explains.
Photographer Wildermuth helped with styling in what was her first styled shoot ever. “Tyler and I shared similar visions, and we truly are pleased with the outcome,” she says. “We both had a vision of using warm, rich tones and textures. I shared my vision of a moody romance and cigar bar, incorporating his idea of marrying warm tones of wood, fabrics and masculine touches of taxidermy with feminine, flirty touches from the bridal gown, florals and candlelight.”
