There is a phrase in photographer land... "put out what you want to get back." For me, that is exactly what this shoot is. It was full of the best people, vendors, models and an insanely beautiful location. Below is a more formal blurb about the inspiration behind this shoot...it was recently featured on Rocky Mountain Bride. Wooohooo- Praise Hands!!
This shoot was birthed out of my love for the rugged pasturelands of Colorado. So many of these beautiful fields are often only seen by the animals that call them home, yet they offer some of the most prized views in the state. This barren beauty partnered with the adventuresome bohemian spirit of so many brides today was the motivation behind this shoot.
The location was on a cattle farm in Nathrop, Colorado. A quiet ranching town located in-between Salida and Buena Vista. I drove past this property months before the shoot and knew I wanted to gain access to this land. I went knocking from stranger's door to stranger's door in hopes of finding the owner and asking permission... and to my delight (and surprise) I found it! The unique backdrop of the Collegiate Peaks along with all those cows makes for something pretty special.
