OUR REVIEWS

Don't take our word for it. The stars speak for themselves.

Katie Jones photographed our wedding & also did our engagement photos. There aren't words to describe how absolutely PHENOMENAL our experience was with her!! Katie has a knack for making everyone feel comfortable while also having fun in the process (even the most photo resistant people!). She is a true artist and has an intuitive eye for photo opportunities which results in absolutely stunning pictures. By the end of our wedding (and engagement session), Katie felt more like family than just our photographer! If you want to ensure your day is captured PERFECTLY, then look no further than Elevate Photography, because Katie is pure magic!

Wow, just wow!! I was first of all blown away by how professional and communicative Ryan was. I was always in the loop about payments, and what was to come next. I never had to reach out to him to figure out what was going on because he was so on top of it. The pictures were even better!!! Our engagement photos were gorgeous and the wedding pictures were absolutely stunning. The way Ryan was able to talk to us and tell us what to do for poses made everything flow so nicely. He knew exactly what to do and you could tell he was a pro at this. If I could rate him/elevate a 10 I would!! Definitely would use them again.

We worked with Brooke* and she was SO great! She made us feel super comfortable, gave us posing tips and was being goofy right along with us. It was like hanging out with a friend who also happens to be taking wonderful photos of you. Highly recommend!*We booked her through another company but I loved her so much I'm rating her here as well!

We had Brooke as our photographer for our wedding, and she was AMAZING to work with! I knew right away from our first few emails together that we were going to get along so well! During our first consultation meeting, she took the time to get to know my husband and I as a couple and made us feel very comfortable. We had such a blast working with her and her team, and they helped capture all of the best moments of our wedding. I couldn’t have imagined working with anybody else other than Brooke. She is an amazing person both on a professional and on a personal level, I would work with her again in a heartbeat. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Brooke and Elevate Photography - you will not be disappointed!

Brooke Phillips did an incredible job photographing our wedding and engagement photo shoot. We couldn't be happier with the results! The photos are so beautiful and really capture all of the special moments from that day. It was a joy to work with Brooke. She was funny, easy going, professional and blended seamlessly into the events. It felt like having another friend at our wedding. We could not recommend her more!

We were referred to Ryan by a friend and couldn't have been happier with our experience. Ryan was incredibly helpful, enthusiastic, friendly and professional. He made taking pictures feel easy and comfortable. The slideshow he put together and showed during our reception was a big hit and thoroughly enjoyed by our guests. We highly recommend using Elevate Photography and Ryan - you won't regret it!

We worked with Katie Jones for our microwedding, and she was easily the best vendor choice we made for our entire wedding. She was fabulous from start to finish. We had meetings to discuss our wants and needs, and so that she could get to know us better, and she was very flexible with us and super responsive. She asked all the questions we hadn't even thought of, and you could just tell she was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Once our wedding day came, she arrived with her assistant exactly on time, and got right to work. We had clouds and rain so she had to adapt a little (I think?) but we never even knew it happened. She was so smooth and moved so quickly, we didn't know if any adaptations needed to be made, and didn't have to stress about anything. Once the rain started, we had to adjust our photo schedule to squeeze in more than planned before the ceremony, but she moved so incredibly quickly you wouldn't know it wasn't as planned. She also was amazing with the kids. They were feeling a little overwhelmed and shy, and were either frowning or on the edge of crying, but she was able to run up to them, give them a tickle or make a funny face, and jump back to her spot quick enough to capture the laugh, and got smiles on everyone at the same time! Quite a feat! Her skills behind the camera and otherwise made all the difference in the world. For the portraits of my husband and I, she was able to direct us in a way that was fun, and got genuine smiles, and captured our spirits. Never once did we feel awkward or uncomfortable. My family didn't even realize we had even been posed for our portraits, because it all looked so natural to us. Throughout the ceremony and reception, I personally didn't even see her. She was in the background, or ducking in and back out quickly, to not distract from the moment, while still capturing it for us. My guests said they watched her and were amazed at how quickly she moved, and when looking back through the photos, there wasn't a single thing she missed. She was everywhere and nowhere at the same time, with absolutely stunning, natural looking photos as a result. My family has already said they want her for whenever the next family wedding is, so I can't wait to see more of her work!

The personal touches did it for me. I had Katie Jones as my photographer and it's not a lie to say that she pretty much saved my wedding memories. My outdoor-park-boathouse-wedding day ended up being a weather disaster. However, you would never know it from the pictures. I still can't believe how great they came out. She made my not-so-photogenic-husband look damn good and caught people authentically having fun with genuine smiles.I got the package where they showed a slideshow of the pictures taken earlier that day, and it was something my guests couldn't stop talking about. They loved being able to see the first look, bridal photos, and even pictures of themselves at the wedding. They felt like they were part of the whole day.Lastly, Katie Jones wrote the most beautifully heartfelt personal note with our album reveal. I feel like her words captured the day and captured the moment so perfectly. I even made myself a separate album that I could customize online and the very first page of that album are the words that she wrote to us about how she saw our love, our connection, and what it felt like to be part of our wedding.I'm so appreciative that she was able to capture such beautiful moments during a day of such chaos. I remember thinking it was a lot of money at the time but it would be worth the memories; I never knew how right I would be.

Don't hire anybody else but Elevate Photography for your wedding! Katie Jones was our photographer as well as her amazing associates Emily and Nate. They were absolutely amazing! Not only did they wrangled my 9 groomsmen for pictures, they were on point on everything! Katie has such a creative mind and eye for beautiful pictures. She even climbed a tree to get a shot and it turned out perfect! We can't recommend them enough. They gave us pictures that we will cherish forever. Also the day of slide show is such a nice touch! Don't hesitate, hire elevate!

I am a little late to leave a review, but we had our newborn photos done in October, 2020. Janae did a beautiful job and we love all the photos she took. She was so patient with our then 3 week old. She was kind, gentle and so considerate. She did not rush at and took her time with him. My husband and I loved the experience and are so grateful to have had such a caring photographer. Thank you Janae!

Planning a wedding during a full-blown pandemic already has it's challenges, but planning one cross-country makes it even crazier. We got married in the mountains (in the middle of winter) and Ryan from Elevate Photography (who is based in Denver) made our experience amazing. Ryan and team were incredibly responsive, professional and communicative. We spoke and connected with Ryan multiple times prior to the wedding to express what we were looking for in our shots, vibe, etc. He understood what we were looking for and captured everything beautifully, made our experience stress-free and was very flexible and accommodating in the event there would be a snow storm the day-before or of (luckily this didn't happen). Cannot recommend Elevate Photography (and Ryan) to anyone needing a wedding photographer in the Denver and mountain areas enough. Our entire wedding party consisted of 9 people total, so capturing our intimate ceremony the way that Ryan was able to was impressive not only to us, but to our parents as well. We were all beyond pleased with Ryan's work and dedication to getting creative shots of such a small party. Thank you for capturing our happiest moment in 2020!

We are in love with our wedding pictures. Even a few months after the event we still regularly scroll through our gallery and relive the moments Elevate Photography captured so perfectly. It’s been such a treat to be able to share them with friends and family members who couldn't be there in person, and can still share a part of the day because there is such richness in the photos.In addition to being incredibly talented, the Elevate team is a pleasure to interact with. When first searching for a photographer and speaking to Ryan something he said really stuck out to me. He mentioned that we’d be spending as much time that day with the photographer as we would with each other and his aim was to make that an enjoyable experience. Mission accomplished because after meeting Ryan in person at our engagement shoot we couldn’t wait to hang out with him again at the wedding. He showed us the coolest spots, scouting off the beaten path gems that gave us the moments we dreamed of when choosing Colorado as our destination.Upon meeting Janae for the first time on the wedding day, it immediately felt like she was a part of our crew. In addition to her creative vision that helped make the most out of our venue to get fun and unique shots, she was prepared for EVERYTHING. From extra bobby pins when my veil needed a boost to loaning me her super cozy scarf as we made the chilly trek to the perfect spot for wedding party photos it was clutch to have such a wedding pro with us.At the reception our guests were blown away by the slideshow showcasing moments from earlier in the day. They couldn’t believe how quickly such amazing images were turned around. And, everyone commented on how skillfully and efficiently the team got us through the family portraits at the church, making it fun, and not an assembly line of smiles.Having Elevate Photography as a part of our wedding day made it extra special. We’re already dreaming of future days where we hope to have occasions where they can help us capture more memories.

Best decision we made (besides choosing to get married)! The booking process was simple and we were able to customize everything to our needs. We chose Kaela as our photographer and she went above and beyond planning and supporting us on our wedding day. She communicated with us constantly and was quick to offer suggestions or reassurances as needed. We could not be happier with the quality of photos she captured and her professionalism! My pictures came to me on time as promised and we are overjoyed with the quality of all of them. I love the fact that I can email a link to all of my family and friends so that they can view the gallery as well, something I wasn't expecting but am thrilled to have nonetheless.

Brittany from Wanderlight Photography did an outstanding job helping us create our memories. Her photos of us captured every step and details from our wedding day at the Stanley Hotel. She had some creative ideas and helped us have fun with our day as well We would highly recommend Brittany as a photographer for your wedding.

Katie at Elevate Photography is absolutely incredible. She first shot our wedding in 2018 and the pictures are to die for. We have them hanging all over our house and look at our album all the time. We get compliments on the pictures almost every time someone new sees them.Katie also more recently took pictures of our newborn and they could not have turned out any better. She was knew exactly how to calm our little one and we got pictures that we are going to cherish forever.If you are on the fence, don’t be. Hiring elevate photography, and specifically Katie, was the best photography decision we have ever made.

Ryan just sent us our wedding pictures from our wedding in September, and we are in awe of his work! We met Ryan over a year ago when we started planning...

Look no farther - Elevate is the BEST! Ryan and Katie were absolutely phenomenal! We had worked with Ryan for our engagement shoot in January and fell in love with his gentle guidance and incredible eye. On our wedding day he and Katie worked so well together to capture our special day and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera (which really isn't our thing)! We have only received a handful of shots but are so in love with what we have received so far! I have no doubt the rest will be just as incredible! Thank you for being a huge part of our special day!

Can't recommend Elevate Photography enough! Ryan and his team were incredible to work with. Neither my husband or I like to be in front of the camera but Ryan made it easy, got us to laugh, made us feel like ourselves, and he turned out some great photos. He is professional, efficient, and knows what he's doing. Really enjoyed working with them! Use Elevate if you can, you won't regret it.
