What you'll do

Join me, Abbey, as we go to one of my FAVORITE parks in Colorado Springs, Ute Valley Park! Here we will go on an adventurous, easy-going hike, and stop along the way to take unique and memorable professional photos in the beautiful scenery all around us!

We will meet at the front of the park where we will start our adventure! From there we will start walking into the park to some of my favorite spots for taking breathtaking photos. These spots include an open field with mountain views, stunning rock formations and lastly after an easy hike up to the top of the hill, some AMAZING mountain views as our final backdrop before heading back to the park's entrance!
As a professional photographer for the last 3 years, I love making each of my guests feel special and more confident when they leave then when they came. Never been in front of a camera? Don't worry, I've got you! I'll be providing posing tips and cheering you on the whole time!
At the end of our experience you will leave having taken in the beauty of Colorado, some new friends, and in 3 days you will receive a private gallery of high quality, professional photos that you will cherish forever! This is a group experience so you may be enjoying the park with another group.

*note if you are the only guest on this experience your experience length could be shorter because it won’t take us as long to make our route

Hi there! I'm Abbey and I have been a professional photographer for 3 years but have done photography as long as I can remember! I absolutely love capturing sweet and memorable moments for my guests to remember for a lifetime! One of the things I love about being a photographer is making you feel comfortable and confident behind the camera so you'll be sure to LOVE your photos. It's important to me that we have a GREAT time while exploring the beauty in Colorado and taking beautiful photos of you!

Where you'll be

Ute Valley Park is one of the many beautiful parks here in Colorado Springs however, it is tucked away and not widely known or visited by travelers. This means that you are getting a more private experience & a locals inside access to one of the best kept spots! Ute Valley has amazing scenery and views to offer alongside the easy going nature of the hike. (which is more like a leisurely walk)

Rated 4.95 out of 5 from 39 reviews.

Super kind! She made it easy to take pictures, even though I’m someone who feels awkward in front of the camera. She shared so much knowledge about the area we were taking photos in and she gave so many recommendations of things to do. Such a lovely soul !

We had a great time with Abbey! As we walked the park taking pictures, she pointed out landscapes and told us about the area. She gave us tons of recommendations of things to do and eat while we are visiting! Taking pictures went smoothly as Abbey gave fun, easy to follow directions. She chose excellent locations and I am so excited to receive our photos with the beautiful landscapes around us!

This experience was wonderful! I purchased this with my significant other as a couple’s shoot which we had never done before. Abbey was extremely sweet, made us feel comfortable, and gave us great guidance for our photos. She also had tons of knowledge on the area and had stories and fun facts for us.

Taking pictures with Abbey was a breeze! We got to hike/walk around a beautiful place at the same time as learning more about Colorado Springs. She had some great facts to share (but wasn’t overwhelming about it.) We were a bit apprehensive to share this experience with another couple but it was so easy to distance and honestly didn’t feel that it took away from our trip. Abbey spent equal amounts of time taking each group’s pictures and seemed to make us each feel “special.” Side note- I am 7 months pregnant and this hike was super doable.
