"If you ever wanna turn into a total f***ing narcissist, I highly recommend Elkk Photography. When I got my album link, I spent the entire day scrolling through thinking “Damn, I look good!” Hell, it’s been months since this was taken and I still look back to check myself out (you think I’m kidding, but there’s more truth to that than I care to admit). Desiree is ridiculously patient and makes you feel super comfortable, she even turns your “this is awkward, I don’t know what to do right now so I’m laughing” laughs into awesome photos. They are my favorite photos of anyone’s ever taken of me and it was honestly a huge confidence boost to get them. Basically, I adore her and can’t recommend her enough. *** Seriously though, you’ll be way too into yourself when she’s done."

 
 

"Of the countless things that a bride could stress about regarding wedding planning, the photographer was one of my top concerns. I wanted beautiful, creative, quality photos without all the cheesiness and cliche that I associate with wedding photography. My initial meeting with Desiree put me at ease; her thoroughness and professionalism convinced me that we would have the kind of photos I'd dreamed of. She was wonderful on the day of the wedding. Taking our photos was completely stress free, and the results...she over-delivered!  We are so pleased with them and I'm grateful to Desiree for her skill and artistry. My husband would also like to add, "As a dude, Desiree was great to work with...totally on point and not ridiculous at all.”

Clair: "We had an AWESOME time at our session with Elkk Photography. I haven’t laughed so much in ages!! I’m definitely the type to freeze up and get really awkward when someone is pointing a camera at me, but Desiree made us feel so comfortable and relaxed! I feel like we really got to be ourselves, and what more could you ask for? "

Tyler: "Seriously, it was the best! Can’t recommend Desiree enough!"

 
 

"I am so very grateful to Desiree for her amazing work. She was a jewel for the whole process-  the engagement photos, the planning and especially on the day of. She made certain that we had all the important photos as well as many tender candid moments captured without feeling like we were under any pressure. She made it fun and stress free! Our wedding day went by so quickly that honestly if it wasn't for her amazing photography I wouldn't have remembered half of what happened! When I received the photos I cried with happiness. With all sincerity,  from the bottom of my heart I recommend Elkk Photography."

"Elkk Photography (Desiree) outdid herself. This was so much fun, I can’t even begin to describe how naturally the whole shoot went. Do the right thing and let her take your pictures!"

 
 

"Desiree at Elkk Photography was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was the only photographer that reached out and wanted to meet and get to know us before our wedding day. And I think it made a world of difference. She was very professional and gave amazing direction while also making us feel comfortable and relaxed. We have received so many compliments on our pictures! We recommend her 100% and can't wait to work with her in the future."

"Elkk Photography was wonderful to work with. Robert and I wouldn't have had it any other way. Desiree makes you feel so comfortable and she makes it so much fun even when it's freezing or crazy hot. She is truly talented and an amazing person to work with. She took our ideas and made them reality. We are thrilled with the results and our wedding would not have been the same with out her. "

 
 

"Desiree at Elkk Photography was such a pleasure to work with. We left our wedding not only feeling like we had a great photographer but a great friend too. She was able to capture candid moments perfectly, even during our engagement session with our 100lb St. Bernard puppy (no easy feat!). She is very responsive and eager to share her work - we were amazed we had a sneak peek of our wedding photos by the morning after. Words cannot express how much it means to us to have these precious family moment documented just as we remembered. Highly recommend Desiree!"

"Desiree did an outstanding job with my senior photos for graduation! You can relate to her on so many levels and to me that’s what stuck out the most. She guides you to where you feel comfortable in front of a camera and that is very hard to find. Even when it started raining she kept a positive attitude for me to keep going, I highly recommend using ELKK Photography, it was just such a pleasure working with her and you will not be disappointed!"

 
 

"Elkk Photography captured our wedding beautifully. We couldn't be more happy with how our photos turned out. Not only is Desiree an amazing photographer, she is also extremely easy to work with, professional, and punctual. She ensured we got the photos we wanted, and went above and beyond to capture magical shots of us in the SNOW in TEXAS on our wedding day. We even got some hilariously fun and silly photos with our dog at the engagement photo shoot. She is dynamic and diverse... highly recommend!"

"During the photo session Desiree was accommodating and encouraging. She has such a great energy that makes you feel very comfortable when you are in front of the camera.

Starting the session off with some poses can feel awkward at first but Desiree was so sweet. She gave great feedback during the session on what poses are working best and how the photos are turning out. 

We chatted and laughed the whole hour! Desiree is fantastic at her job and I recommend her 10 times over!"

 
 

"We chose Desiree Rose/Elkk Photography for our wedding and could not be happier with the results. Desiree has a knack for making people feel comfortable in front of the camera so the posed shots turned out nicely, not stiff at all. The candid photos and detail shots (venue, rings, invitations, etc.) are also great and artistic. She is very professional and we received the final photos promptly. Instead of a traditional engagement shoot, Desiree braved the sticker-burrs at a park to get some great shots of us on the tandem bicycle that was our wedding gift and means of transportation on our honeymoon! We highly recommend Elkk Photography."
