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! This is a group experience so you may be enjoying the park with another group.

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 7 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

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)

My wife and I had an incredible time during our experience with Abbey! We have been to Colorado Springs a few times and she showed us a completely new spot that we would have otherwise never checked out. Not only was the location for the hike beautiful, but Abbey was so knowledgeable and shared some really cool facts. Abbey made us feel so comfortable taking photos and we were all laughing the entire time. We cannot wait to see the finished products and would totally recommend this experience!

We used this experience with Abbey to take photos for our small intimate wedding and she exceeded our expectations! She is amazing to work with and her work is breathtakingly beautiful. We have only seen a few photos as a preview and they look like they are out of a wedding magazine. I couldn’t be happier with this experience. ❤️
