Not long ago we were asked to be part of a very special stylized shoot for a very special couple.
The couple, Kris and Elisha, were high school sweethearts. They both graduated from Columbine high school, where they survived the tragic school shooting. After high school Kris joined the military. The couple wanted more than anything to be married before his first deployment. At the age of 19 years-old, they had a quick wedding and shortly after Kris was deployed. Since his first deployment, he has been deployed a total of 9 times. As you can imagine, this has been quite the challenge. Finally, after serving our country for over 10 years, Kris is home for good! Elisha, their beautiful little girl, and twin baby boys are so happy to have Kris home.
Unfortunately because of the quick wedding and deployment the couple has no wedding photos. So after hearing about their story, photographer Laura Smith decided to take action. She partnered up with Privé Events and other wonderful vendors (listed below) to put together a beautiful stylized shoot with Kris and Elisha as the models.
Here is a peak at how it turned out! What a beautiful family!
