Bethany and Janae of Elevate were recently the photographers at our wedding. They did nothing short of an absolutely spectacular job; words can't describe how great our pictures turned out. Not only are the pictures phenomenal, they were helpful and engaged on the day of, with the perfect combination of staged shots and candid moments.I would absolutely recommend them for any event as they are a pleasure to work with and the pictures are breath taking. I look forward to working with them again in the future.

Have you ever wanted to add your photographer to your wedding party because you loved them so much? That's Brooke!From the first initial meeting to the wedding, Brooke was a 10/10 and we were SO impressed. She was incredibly sweet, funny, professional and brought so much ease to what can typically be a stressful (yet beautiful!) event. The wedding party and guests all raved about her and we felt so lucky to be matched up with someone so incredible.Brooke's communication and planning tips were top-notch and from the start it was obvious she truly wanted the best for my husband and I on our special day.Through all the chaos of the wedding, trying to corral people for pictures, Brooke and Paul stayed organized and kept the timeline right on track - all while making us laugh and smile along the way. One of my favorite parts of the wedding was the 4 of us hiking to beautiful areas within the venue. They knew exactly where to go to capture the most beautiful shots. True professionals!Elevate Photography should be EVERYONE'S go-to for weddings. My husband and I truly can't thank Brooke and Paul enough. The photos are STUNNING and the memories we have will be truly cherished forever.Thank you Brooke, Paul & Elevate!Heather & Keith

Highly recommend hiring Elevate Photography! We worked with Brooke for our wedding and she was fantastic. The photos all turned out amazing, and Brooke made the day fun and easy, which is important because it felt like we spent more time with Brooke than anyone else that day. I can't stop looking at the photos and how beautiful they are.One of my favorite parts of the day was the "day of show" slide show of photos that they do - it's something I've never seen before that is unique to Elevate. She also did our engagement photos and even recommended the location (the historic park in Golden) to us, which turned out beautifully for our save the dates.Brooke also had experience at our venue (Highlands Ranch Mansion) which was very important to us as she knew the best spots to photograph. Brooke was extremely organized and collaborative in our planning process, making the actual day of the wedding low-stress. The package we selected had an assistant photographer and she was amazing as well. I definitely think we got the full value from our package and would highly recommend Elevate.

Brooke was absolutely amazing throughout the planning process, the wedding day and getting her work back! She kept us organized and within our timeline, all while making everyone feel comfortable. All of our guests talked about how great she was, and everyone was included in the shots. We got our sneak peek back within a few days and they were breathtaking! Within a month, we got all of our pictures and she perfectly captured our day. We have so many great shots it will be hard to choose which ones to display! I could not have asked for a better photographer for our day.

From our initial introductory phone call, I was beyond impressed with Bethany at Elevate. She was so prepared for our call and walked me through things even our wedding coordinator had not mentioned. After just that one phone call, I knew she was the photographer I wanted, and I could not be happier that we found her! Bethany was so laid back and fun at our engagement shoot, she even won over my husband who absolutely hates having his photo taken. She was super communicative, and always positive, reassuring and calm/cool/collected. She listened to all of our requests and was patient and flexible with everything leading up to and on the day of, despite some chaos with family and weather. Elevate's pricing is super competitive (honestly, I was expecting to pay more for everything we got). They also include a slideshow during the wedding reception, which I have to admit I was hesitant about and actually considered asking them not to do, but am so glad I didn't! Countless guests commented on how amazing the slideshow was and how they'd never been to a wedding that had that before -- people got teared up. And it was so fun to take a couple minutes to pause and relive some of the moments from earlier in the day. We got both our engagement and wedding photos back within a month, and they are just superb. I ordered some prints from our engagement shoot from them already, and the quality is great. There are so many incredible shots from our wedding, I don't know how I'm going to choose prints or what to include in an album! Bethany and Nate were just amazing, and I cannot say enough about how pleased we are with having found and hired Elevate.
We loved working with Brooke and Hannah! They made us feel so comfortable and happy during our wedding day. They kept the timeline on track, were super organized, and just so fun! Not to mention, the photos are AMAZING! I've gotten so many compliments on our pictures. Thank you for being part of our day and making it perfect!

Brooke from Elevate was a superstar, the hero, and a wonderwoman of not our only wedding day but of our engagement shoot. We LOVED meeting her months before for the engagement shoot. It felt so good to see a familiar face when I got to the venue on the day. The photos are absolutely breathtaking, and we are sooo happy!

Bethany with Elevate was incredible to work with! She made us feel so comfortable and our engagement and wedding day photos turned out beautiful. Bethany had very clear and warm communication during all of our calls and she was always super responsive over email. Bethany helped us be ourselves on our big day and she captured amazing photos. We typically don't take a lot of photos but Bethany was the perfect person to make us feel comfortable and beautiful (and we were having fun the entire time when working with her!). We can't stop looking through all of the photos because we love them so much. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! Thank you Elevate and Bethany!

Bethany with elevate photography made our wedding experience so special. From our first meeting to engagement photos to our wedding day, she kept in close communication with us. Bethany is warm and made my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera, which is something that before meeting Bethany, I was not. By the end of our time together, Bethany felt more like a friend than a vendor. She is super talented! I would recommend her to any of my friends.
Bethany with Elevate was an absolute blast to work with for our engagement and wedding photos. Our initial meeting was so warm and inviting at the Elevate studio. She was so great with us getting to open up and be ourselves in front of the camera. She was sure to make every little detail seem big and important. We had a great call a couple weeks before the wedding day to nail down everything we wanted to capture. And once we got to the big day, she went above and beyond for us continuously. I cannot recommend Elevate and Bethany enough!

We just got married in June 2023, after having to postpone our wedding by over 3 years due to the pandemic. Along the way, Elevate was SO understanding and flexible, as we had to continuously change the date, which often meant changing photographers. In the end, we had Bethany for our rehearsal dinner and our wedding. Our photos are nothing short of flawless. She helped put us in classic poses, while letting us have fun and add our own personal touch. She caught candids beautifully, which was an extra challenge given one of the stars of the wedding was our very mobile and mercurial 2-year-old! Highly recommended, we would absolutely choose them again!

If you're reading this review, just stop whatever you're doing and reach out to Elevate to book a consultation call.Working with Elevate and Brooke specifically, was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. Most of the photographers that we screened were all business or educated us on their methods. Brooke took the time to learn about our story and our vision for our wedding day first! After meeting with her, we knew that we would end up working with them.We did our engagement photos with Brooke and loved how she captured the typical shots, but captured how we are naturally, and candidly.In the time leading up to the wedding, Brooke was so easy to work with. She created a timeline that met ALL of our needs and was quick to make adjustments to work with our wedding coordinator and other vendors.The way Elevate showed up for our wedding day was better than we could have imagined. Brooke and Bethany met all of our timeline deadlines and captured SO MANY shots. We were blown away by the photos post-production and editing. Brooke was so sharp in directing us and our bridal party through bridals, bridal party, and family photos. She was quick to work with what was happening naturally and capture those behind the scenes moments. Bethany was so creative in how she just dove in to get the shot. I told her about a shot that I had a dream about, she gave me a "lets do it", and now it's one of our favorite shots. Bethany was also so intentional about getting shots of guests, families, and group photos. Multiple times I saw her jump right in anytime someone pulled out a phone to take a professional photo during the cocktail hour.We knew the day of show was included in our package, but we didn't understand how spectacular and moving it would be. Brooke diligently worked during HER dinner hour to edit some shots from the day. We knew it would be a fast turn around and probably a bit stressful. Our guests got a "sneak peak" during dinner hour. And it did not disappoint. I (the bride) was brought to tears. Our guests were in tears. And Brooke received a well-deserved standing ovation after that 10 minutes slide show. Multiple guests approached me later in the evening and expressed their delight at the photographers efforts and the show. Many of them said they'd never seen anything like that at a wedding before.We also attended the premier party at Elevate's studio and just felt like everything came full circle. We loved the care that the team took for us as a couple, our guests, and our vision for the day. We're so grateful for Brooke, Bethany, and the entire Elevate team (post production you rock!). We will be recommending them indefinitely!
Bethany was the photographer for our wedding, and she was amazing! From the beginning, she was organized and made sure we had all the shots/family photos we wanted. She helped us to figure out a schedule for the day to ensure we had enough time for all the photos we wanted. The day of the wedding, she made us feel so comfortable during photo session and was able to quickly adapt when we got a few light showers during photos! The pictures and editing were beautiful with classy, elegant shots. They also got great shots of our “best man first look” prank on the groom! The slideshow of photos on the day of the wedding was a hit, and really allowed guests to see behind the scenes on the day of the wedding. Overall, we were so happy with our experience and would highly recommend Bethany and Elevate to anyone looking for beautiful and professional wedding photography.

Brooke with Elevate Photography was incredible. We were nervous to be in front of a camera and she made it so incredibly easy. Family at the wedding even commented on how awesome her personality is. And the photos turned out amazing! Brooke helped us with both our fall engagement shoot and spring wedding. Bethany was a great assistant the day of the wedding. The photos are so beautiful I’m struggling to figure out which ones to print! Elevate was more expensive than other photographers we were looking at, but it was worth every penny to have photos that will last a lifetime. We would give 10 stars if we could!
