We had the pleasure of meeting Brent and Kelly at the Rocky Mountain Bridal Show in January and although we were able to chat with them, it was only for a few moments.  With more than 1,200 brides going through the show that day, Brent and Kelly stood out in our mind because they were so kind and kept coming back to ask questions.  Kelly emailed us the night of the show and asked to book her Della Terra wedding for June!!

There were a number of reasons we were so excited: we had just meet them and they were so excited to get their photographer booked AND they were getting married at one of our favorite venues!  The staff at Della Terra is truly amazing and they work very hard to ensure your day is perfect!  Not to mention they were getting married in the Rocky Mountains, in JUNE!  The trees would be in full bloom, animals would be out, the clouds would be amazing and if we were lucky, we'd get an afternoon storm!

Little did we know that Brent and Kelly's day would be more than anyone could've hoped for!!!  Not only was the weather AMAZING with 70 degrees and a light breeze, but the kids were so excited to partake in the wedding and the animals were all over!  From bees to chipmunks and mountain goats to elk, we were able to capture so many of God's amazing creatures.

As the day unfolded, you could see the excitement and love between two families becoming one.  Kelly's little girls and Brent's little boy were so amazing with each other; constantly joking around, having fun and loving on their parents.

Brent & Kelly - you two have done an amazing job with your kiddos and cultivating your relationship.  We thank you for allowing us to photograph your family, friends and to capture your wedding bliss.  Blessings for an incredible marriage and great family memories!!

Estes Park is known for their Elk...  Little did we know that the Elk were ready to hang out after all of the rain we've received and they had no problem sticking around for Brent & Kelly's wedding!

Brent kept a secret from us through our engagement session...look at those awesome tattoos!!!  There's always a meaning behind tattoos and we love learning about it (good, bad, heartbreaking, life changing, etc).  Not to mention, it's art...

As we packed up our gear from Brent & Kelly's wedding, an evening summer storm started rolling over Della Terra and Estes Park.  Kris took his chances at capturing lighting over Estes and ran up the hill to capture this gorgeous shot!  God's pictures are amazing!!
