Hayley & Jackson's Adventure Session

Updated: Aug 3, 2022

01. The Location

Paint Mines Interpretive Park

29950 Paint Mine Rd., Calhan, CO 80808 (Open in Maps >)

"The park consists of 4 miles of trails that rise over 500 feet in elevation. It covers 750 acres, containing grassland and geological formations of hoodoos, colored clay and sandstone-capped spires. The site is protected by law because of the fragile environment, as well as the geological and archaeological significance of the artifacts, rocks, animals and plants."


02. The Session


Before I headed out to Colorado for my wedding I contacted Rachel an AMAZING photographer and good friend of mine who lives in Colorado Springs. (Check out her awesome work here I told her that I would be in her area and definitely wanted to meet up and set something up so we could shoot together again. She suggested the Paint mines, which I was on board immediately, and she got to work setting everything else up. (If you're reading this Rachel I MISS YOU ALREADY!)

03. The Couple

Hayley & Jackson

Hayley and Jackson were naturals in front of the camera! Rachel had Hayley pick out a red dress which popped against the badlands!

PRO TIP: When choosing an outfit for your engagement session look for colors that will stand out in your surroundings.

For example, if you’re in a lush green forest opt for a bright colored look instead of dark green or browns. That way you won’t blend in to your surroundings and you become the main focus on the image.

Check out these super fun images from the shoot!
