Rustic Farm Engagement Session in Vero Beach

Twisted Oak Farms

Spending time getting to know Brittany + Andrew before their wedding at Cattleya Chapel next October was an absolute blast. They are both teachers and adventurers at heart!

Andrew and I are really into Overlanding, or vehicle-based exploration/camping. We’ve geared up our Toyota 4 Runner with a rooftop tent, pull-out awning, attached room, recovery gear, and other off-road equipment to help us get out to remote places and explore.

Brittany

So naturally, when scoping out a place for them to take their engagement photos, Twisted Oak Farms was the perfect mix of romantic and rustic to cater to their adventurous spirits! Now, rustic is not normally my forte, but I’d say it turned out pretty amazing!
