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, a beautiful white and orange rock formation and lastly we will take the quick & easy hike up to the top of the ridge for 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!

*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 while taking photos!

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)

Abbey was very fun as well as extremely knowledgeable! I learned so much from this little shoot. The area we went to was vast yet quaint. My husband and I get photos taken often and I would say by far Abbey was the best we have had thus far. She even recommended some local spots to eat as we are here for our honeymoon! Much love to Abbey and her wonderful heart, and for capturing our love!

DO NOT HESITATE to book with Abbey! She is so friendly and makes you feel perfectly at ease. The park is beautiful and she has some amazing spots picked out for pictures. Throughout the “hike” she gives you different info about the area and she had some great suggestions for us on must sees while we are here and some trails to take to get amazing views!
