Salida Colorado Photographers

I love the town of Buena Vista, Colorado and can be found there often!  In the summer the river is great, the weather is warm and there is always a festival going!  There are so much great restaurants and shops, it is super fun!  Also, there is always something new to explore and someone new to meet.  This weekend I finally got to meet Alf!

Alf’s Blacksmith Shop in Buena Vista is the strangest spot in BV!  He is located a block off main street, near the new downtown area of South Main, in Chaffee County.  Lots of small ‘towns’ in Colorado have blacksmith shops, but I rarely see them open for business.  Alf however is still operational, he does repairs and sharpening and even has an Instagram page!  If you have a chance stop and chat with him, you should do so, he has some great stories!

Buena Vista Wedding Photography

Chaffee County’s best wedding venue!  Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort located in Nathrop, Colorado (between the towns of Salida and Buena Vista) is a wonderful wedding venue tucked away in the foothills on your way to St. Elmo.  It is beautiful year round, however fall is my favorite season in the mountains!  It is a perfect venue for large mountain weddings, their outdoor ceremony site along the Chalk Creek can set up to 400 guests and this reception building was built to accommodate up to 300 guests (almost 5,000sq ft)!!
