My partner and I had our engagement photoshoot at this incredible home. The homeowner couldn't have been more welcoming and kind. The space is truly incredible and feels like a time capsule straight from the 60s. Our favorite space was the taxidermy game/bar room with conversation pit. We also used the expansive outdoor pool area for outside photos. Vintage dream house vibes!
