What you'll do
I'll give you specific directions for our meeting place & from there we'll hit the trail! I'll give you some of the history of the area & take great candid & posed photos of you all & the gorgeous scenery & special moments of your hike. You'll be able to download all of the high resolution photos for web sharing & printing. Perfect for surprise engagements, bonding with co workers & your wedding attendants, small intimate weddings & family photos for Holiday cards. If you're looking for an easy hike that's jam packed with gorgeous Colorado scenery, this hike is definitely for you! It's well worth rising early to take this hike, when the sun first hits the rocks - the views will take your breath away. We'll take plenty of time for picture taking & rest stops. It's a 1.5 mile hike. There is a slight elevation rise on the last 1/2 of the walk that is very doable for even novice hikers. We stop often so there is plenty of time to take in the view, take amazing photos & catch your breath. The time of the hike varies between 90 and 120 minutes depending on the pace of the group. You'll have incredible vacation photos that your friends will envy. Clothing should be comfortable especially shoes, neutral or earth tones work best. We will often see some of the wildlife that call the park home. We'll end the hike back where we started & enjoy snacks and a Frappuccino.
I'm combining my passion for photographing people with my love for nature hikes. I have lived in Colorado for over 34 years & have hiked 100's of miles of it's beautiful trails over the years. I've led other hikes in Colorado & I think that this is one of the most beautiful hikes we have. I like camping, hiking and horseback riding. I have three spunky cats that all have VERY different personalities. I call it a cat ranch. I have been a full time professional portrait and wedding photographer in Colorado for over 31 years. I know how to make people feel at ease in front of the camera, love their lifestyle photo shoot, and love their photos. I love meeting new people and helping them to fully experience this amazing place.
We'll end the hike with a cold Frappuccino and snacks.

Where you'll be
This majestic trail weaves through one Colorado’s most amazing red rock formations, into meadows where mule deer roam & great views of Red Rocks park. I'll take you to some of the best photo ops in the park. This is a fabulous way to start your day. Early morning is one of the most beautiful times to view the rock formations, get great photos & have a chance to see wildlife that may roam near the path.
