If you travel through the Black Forest in Colorado Springs, you run into something that doesn’t even look like part of the usual Colorado landscape! In Calhan, CO, in the middle of nowhere, lies the Paint Mines. Here is where we set up a very windy, cold but beautiful styled shoot!
With gorgeous dresses by Blue Bridal Boutique in Denver, CO and our three lovely models, we moved around the Paint Mines and found beautiful hidden spaces within it. We dressed our ladies with florals from the talented Fairytale Floral! Lindsay made our team a beautiful bouquet and flower crown, as well as florals to compliment our cake table and sweetheart table.
One of our models, the beautiful Kiah, had so much fun in this flow-tastic boho Blue Bridal dress and crowned herself in flowers. She also wore her hiking boots along for the ride 🙂
And meet our lovely makeup artist as well as model, Taylor! Her pink hair complimented the landscape perfectly!
Despite it being hurricane force winds (or so it seemed), and frigid temps, the team looks completely warm and cozy in photos. Great models and actors haha
Now how cute is this sweetheart table that Kaitlin with Kaitlin Shea Weddings set up?! She hiked down with all of this and set it up. Beyond gorgeous! We put Fairytale Floral’s work in the vase (which kept getting blown over from the wind-but those flowers held on!), and beautiful jewel tones. Brave Brynn Studios made the place stones with her gorgeous calligraphy work. She also made the stunning mirror as well as stationary. Obsessed!
She also made these adorable signs on site. So sweet 🙂
Now as the sun set, the colors popped even more! We finished the evening with some gorgeous views atop the mines, a little dance sesh, and of course, and group photo of our team! We also had Tim and Keenan along from ICOSA media to document the shoot and they put together a beautiful film for us! Thank you to everyone involved!
