Having Hannah and Skyler capture our wedding was honestly the number one thing on my list to make my dream wedding(aside from my handsome groom of course;)) 
They photographed my best friends wedding a few years ago and I have always been obsessed with how well their wedding day was so easy to relive through the photos. I wanted that for my self!! I met with Hannah right away once we got engaged, and from the get go she was the easiest person to befriend and talk wedding details in such a fun and stress free way. On the actual day she was there for me for more than just the photos. She helped me feel comfortable during those pre-ceremony nerves. Once we got the photos back, we were instantly in tears reliving the most important day of our lives that changed our lives forever!! The photos came out even more beautiful than I expected(and I was expecting a lot!)! Our wedding photos are honestly some of the only physical items that I treasure the most and we are so excited to show them to our children one day! Thank you Hannah and Skylar for capturing our big day so beautifully! Xx -Audrey Steensma

"We couldn't be more pleased with Elate Photo! Hannah took our engagement photos as well as our wedding day photos, and everything came out so beautifully! She does beautiful and inspired work for a very affordable price. I typically am not a fan of having my photo taken so I was a bit unsure of what to expect at a photo shoot. From the very beginning, Hannah made me feel comfortable and confident. It was fun being part of her artwork, and I didn't want it to win! She took so many creative shots that really impressed our family and friends, and look great on our wall. We are continually getting compliments and having people ask "Who was your photographer!?" If you are looking for soft, natural light photos with great customer service, Elate Photo is for you!!" -Kiley Nicole Lan
"Where does one begin when talking about Elate Photo? I cannot say enough good things about Hannah and the work she does!! From the very beginning, she was inviting, professional and concerned with making our experience a memorable one. From emails to one on one meetings, Hannah made sure my husband and I were getting exactly what we wanted for our wedding photography. The day of our wedding, Hannah was warm, easy to work with, calm (even though she had to deal with shooting our wedding in the rain), and reassuring that we would still get beautiful shots despite the weather. She even texted me the morning of to make sure I was doing alright! My husband and I felt completely confident in her ability to do a great job in spite of inclement weather, and felt totally comfortable posing in front of her lens. Hannah arrives the day of beyond prepared to make her clients' experience memorable, comfortable, and completely magical! Upon receiving our wedding photos, not only could I not stop starring at the beautiful images Hannah captured, but I could not get over how thankful I felt to have had Hannah's talent be a major part of our special day! My husband and I will forever cherish the memories Hannah was able to capture, and will forever remain confident in our decision to have Elate Photo contribute to such an important moment in our lives! I cannot say thank you enough!! Hannah, you are incredibly talented and were such a joy to work with!"Adriana Crandall
 
"When planning my wedding, one of the most important steps for me was booking a talented photographer. I wanted someone that would be able to capture the joy and happiness I would feel that day in images that I would have for the rest of my life. I had come across Hannah's work on Instagram and knew, without a doubt, that I wanted her to photograph my wedding and reception.The day of my wedding, I was a bit nervous because I am camera shy and tend to be awkward in front of the lens! That was not the case with Hannah. She made me feel so comfortable and at ease (which is so important). She captured genuine moments of pure excitement and bliss. David, my husband, and I truly enjoyed our bride and groom session after the ceremony. It was a sweet bonding experience as newlyweds. In no way did I feel like it was a task that needed to get done prior to the reception. It was a time of intimacy between David and I that Hannah perfectly captured.Once I received my photos in the mail, I was stunned on how beautiful they came out. I stared at the photos every day for a month because I was truly in awe of her work!If you book Elate Photography, I guarantee you that you will not be disappointed."-Tea Lopez
 "I wish there were enough words to describe how amazing Elate Photo is! Hannah is thee absolute sweetest and her work is flawless! She did both our engagement and wedding day photos and my heart could just burst with joy by how beautiful, raw, and elegant her photography is. Everything is so organized, she organically gets to know the couples she works with and makes it so fun, easy and comfortable. I truly couldn't be happier with my decision to choose her for the biggest day of my life. I know I will definitely be using her to capture my next big life event whenever that maybe! Thank you for everything, Hannah! You & your work are simply magic! "Xo -Jenna Campbell
  "There are no amount of words that will add up the gratefulness that my husband and I feel for Elate photo. My first and favorite memory was our engagement picture session. Jeremiah and I were sitting on a blanket, Hannah was lying on the ground taking pictures, there were some (dead) plants in the way..she walked right up and ripped them out of the ground. It was then I saw a little glimpse of her dedication to get the right shot. Not only did she capture beautiful moments, but she captured the love that Jeremiah and I have. When it came to our wedding day, we got lucky that her husband Skyler was able to be her second shooter. Skyler is extremely talented as well. There's something about having another husband and wife teaming up to capture your biggest day. They just get it, they are understanding of some of the stress you may have been under but are more understanding in the love that brought you to this day. They made us feel so comfortable and at ease in what could have easily been awkward moments with cameras in your face! Not only is Hannah talented, but she is one of the kindest people I have met and instantly we have felt good friends with her and her husband. As I said before, thank you, thank you, thank you...they may never stop coming!"-Megan Pippin 
 "We were so, so lucky to have Hannah and Skyler photograph our wedding! Not only is Hannah's work absolutely gorgeous, but she is also the absolute sweetest person and brings such great energy to the day! My husband and I both feel we are a bit awkward in front of the camera, but starting from the moment we met Hannah for our engagement shoot we were completely comfortable and at ease. This feeling continued onto our wedding day; seeing her arrive while I was getting ready felt like another friend joined the party. Her love of love and weddings shines through all interactions with her and is more than evident in the photos she takes. We could not be happier with the photos they took, they are so beautiful! They captured everything perfectly and I cherish every photo and memory attached to it."               -Courtney Arthur-Klutz
"There are not enough positive words in the world to express our gratitude for Hannah and Skyler. From the very beginning, our meeting with Hannah to discuss her availability and services was professional, organized, and gave me an overwhelming peace about the wedding. With all the stress that comes from choosing vendors and venues - the Westbys were truly an answer to prayer. We got to know Hannah better through our engagement shoot and immediately felt so comfortable. After exploring Coronado with us, she was AMAZING and we fell in love with the photos. With a few sneak peaks and a fast turn around, we were overwhelmingly impressed! She delivered the same professionalism and contagious joy on our big day. Her husband, Skyler, made my husband feel at ease during the day of. We loved that they work so well separately to cover all areas, and then work so well together. It made the day run seamlessly. Overall, I don't know what we were more impressed with - their amazing, kind, and loving personalities that brought so much joy to our wedding day OR their incredible creativity and artistic talent that provided us with perfect "forever memories".Choosing Elate Photography was hands down one of the best decisions that we made in the wedding planning process. We are so thankful!!-Emily Deakin
"I can't say enough amazing things about Elate photo. Hannah captured our wedding in the most elegant, classic, and beautiful way, and not one detail was left out. The photos came out better than I imagined and the process was so fun. I'm a pretty camera shy person as well but Hannah made both my husband and I feel so relaxed and comfortable. She is truly the best at what she does and we will definitely use her again in the future!"-Haley Betlem 
"Hannah/Elate did an amazing job taking my wedding photos this last June! She was super organized and professional from start to finish! On the day of the wedding taking the pictures felt natural and relaxed. She did an incredible job making sure any special shots I had requested beforehand got taken. She truly captured our wedding day from start to finish! I also was very pleasantly surprised at how quickly she got the photos edited and sent to us! I loved each and every picture and cannot help but look through them over and over again!! Thank you so much for capturing the most memorable and happy day of our new life together as husband and wife! "-Becca O'Neal
"I found Hannah through Instagram and fell in love with her work. She photographed our wedding last January 16’. My husband and I never had our pictures professionally taken before so when we saw our wedding photos we were blown away. Our wedding would not have been complete without Hannah. She made me feel comfortable and at ease. When I found out I was expecting a year later, one of my first thoughts was “Maternity photos with Hannah?! YES!” I was nervous to email her about a maternity photo shoot since I knew that wasn’t her specialty, but lucky for me she agreed to do it. I am not only in love with her work but the bubbly, sweet, loving person she is behind the camera. She has an eye and knows exactly what her clients are looking for. She has been through so many milestones with my husband and me. I cannot wait for her to capture our future together with our son." -Joy Basto
