About Us

Wedding Photography is more than just our profession; It's our passion. Have you ever been drawn to a photo, unable to stop looking at it with no idea why? That's our goal with every image that we create. Photography is literally stopping and capturing one brief and fleeting moment. We want all of our images to be filled with emotion. We want our brides and grooms to look at their wedding photos and remember the exact feeling that they had at that moment in time. We want our prospective brides and grooms to look at our work and imagine themselves in that moment. . When people are drawn to our work, when they FEEL something from our images, that is how we know it is a great fit.

As a husband and wife team, we are photographers who see things from two completely different perspectives. Our different perspectives not only allow our images to be completely unique from each other, they also allow us to capture your day from both a female (bride) and male (groom) point of view. The images we create are genuine, telling a story in a way that is artistic, creative and modern.

Your wedding is SO much more to us than just an event. It is the story of two families becoming one. Your wedding photos are your first family heirloom. We are honored to be the ones to tell your story.

~ Rick & Stephanie owners of Ardent Photography

Perks:

  • Two Photographers: Having TWO photographers on the day of is now the norm. It is completely necessary to capture each and every moment that will occur. Rick and Stephanie are BOTH full time professional photographers (no assistants here). We both shoot every single wedding together which gives us the benefit of knowing how one another shoots, how the day will flow, our strengths as artists etc...

We charge what we feel our time is worth and make sure you have high resolution files with a printing release to share digitally, print elsewhere etc. You also recieve BOTH a black and white copy as well as a color copy of every photo. We don't like to cherry pick which version you get based on our own preference.
  • Experience: Rick and I have been photographing weddings for almost a decade now. We are laid back and fun and know the ins and outs of how weddings flow. We keep a retail studio, invest in state of the art equipment and carry a back up for every peice of equipment we own. You can feel safe and secure when you hire Ardent.

Rick and Stephanie are the best! Had our 25th anniversary shoot with them and absolutely loved their work. Too bad they weren't around when we got married 25 years ago. They would have definitely been our #1 choice for photographers! Love you guys!

Easily in the top three of my fellow, and favorite photographers in the Wyoming/Colorado area. Their photos aren't just good; their photos show genuine emotion, honesty, passion. They tend to capture the moments that nobody else even sees.

The love and support that Rick and Steph show to all their customers is a blessing. Their ministry through taking photos/memories of people is a God given talent. They always make sure there is an artistic and different take on the photos that they take.
