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 and stunning rock formations before heading back to the park's entrance!
As a professional photographer for the last 4 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 7-10 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)

Rated 4.96 out of 5 from 150 reviews.

Abbey chose a beautiful location for our photo sesh! We loved that she was able to share her knowledge of the area with us as well. Abbey has a fun and bright personality which put us at ease and made our experience a fun one! We can't wait to see our pictures and all parted ways feeling that we’d made a new friend.

Abbey gave guidance when needed and provided helpful descriptions of the final look to ensure that the best shots were created. She was very flexible, accommodating, and patient. Abbey shared bits of history about Colorado and the park where the photos are taken. Something we personally liked - the photos that Abbey is able to take is dependent upon how the park is changing. The set of photos you take may not be the same set in a few months (seasons changing aside). We liked this because we felt like our set will be unique! Abbey and this experience would be recommended again easily!

This was a great experience. My husband doesn’t love taking pictures but Abbey was super chill yet personal and great at giving feedback. We had a great time and got to meet nice people in our group at the same time!

Abbey was amazing! We haven’t gotten our pictures yet, but what a wonderful time we had! We saw some gorgeous scenery, met new friends and Abbey was so sweet! We will definitely look for her experience the next time we come to Colorado:)
