IT ALL STARTED WITH A

Dream

We dreamed of a place where we could wake up and feel inspired every morning. We dreamed of a place our kids could roam, build treehouses, and spend their childhoods in nature.

We dreamed of a place our couples could have access to a private mountain retreat. We wanted a place where your photos to be unique to you, and the freedom to shoot in an intimate setting where you can relax, have a drink, and avoid an audience of strangers looking on. We wanted your pups to be able to run off-leash and to be a part of your photos, and for your kids to be able to explore and meet our friendly goats, chickens, and alpacas.

That dream came true in 2016.

After a weekend getaway to Buena Vista where we drank a bottle of wine and proceeded to call a realtor, we ended up stumbling on the perfect piece of land complete with an old 1800’s home.

We immediately knew it was meant to be, and within three weeks, we had sold our home in Conifer and moved to our ranch. Located at 8,000 feet in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, we are halfway between the two charming mountain towns of Buena Vista and Salida, right up the road from Mt. Princeton Hot Springs and less than 20 minutes from Monarch Mountain ski resort.

Since that day in 2016, we’ve renovated the house, brought home our two boys (plus  dozens of animals), watched thousands of sunsets, and spread the ashes of our dear pup, Copper.

We’ve shot family photos, engagement photos, maternity photos, elopements, proposals, as well as hosting over 150 families in our Airbnb. We are so honored to have the privilege of taking care of this land, and we want nothing more than to fill it with love.

We can't wait to have you here!
