Excellent at capturing the day posted 11/5/2013 (modified 11/6/2013)

Jan and her assistant Barb did a wonderful job of capturing all my memories. They coordinated with eachother so my fiance and I wouldn't have seen eachother before the ceremony while doing our pictures. My photos came out just as amazing as I remember the day to be!

Jan Pelton was perfection!! posted 11/4/2012

We could not have been happier with Jan as our photographer for our engagement and wedding photos. She got to know us and took extra time in planning for our special day. She respected our wishes while capturing every moment of our wedding and ceremony. I would highly recommend her for any special occasion and hope to work with her again in the future!

great experience! posted 11/1/2012

Jan was referred to us by the chapel director. She was one of the only photographers we contacted that worked w/ us on our budget & guided us in a direction that would give us the best experience for what we were working with, both time wise & money wise. She was very professional & friendly. She gave great direction while doing group & individual photos. She was the first person there & the last to leave. We loved our photos so much that we've decided to buy the entire DVD collection for a pretty reasonable price. I would recommend her to any bride!

Jan Pelton #1 posted 10/22/2012

We found Jan on the Knot website after she was rated #1 for two years and thought we would give her a try. We first had her take our engagement photos and then our wedding photos. She was prompt in her quotes and gave us a really fair price compared to other photographers we spoke with. In fact, I don't think she charges what her work is worth-she is absolutely amazing! From the first meeting, to the wedding, she was unbelievabley nice and considerate of our needs. She made me and my husband feel so relaxed and comfortable during the meeting and both picture sessions. My entire family after the wedding told us how much they enjoyed her being there for every moment, but not "being in the way". After we saw our wedding pictures, we absolutely knew what they meant even though it sounded blunt. She captured so many special moments that we didn't even know existed until the photos came back. On our way home from our honeymoon, she sent us a slideshow of our wedding pictures to view and my husband and I literally spent over an hour crying like babies in the airport because of how great she did. If there was a rating for 10 stars, Jan would absolutely deserve them. We will have her take our children's baby photos when that time comes, as well as our family pictures. Each person I come into contact with that is having a special occasion coming up, gets a reccomendation for Jan. She will work with you to give you exactly what you invision and will surprise you when you see the results. If she doesn't win for best photographer of the year, I will be shocked! Please use Jan for your engagement and wedding photos, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Jan for taking all of our memories and making them into photos that we can share with our friends, family and hopefully future customers.

Amazing! posted 10/13/2012

Jan was great! She spent time to meet with me and go over all the details of our wedding and the photos we wanted. She also offered suggestions and tips to make sure we got great photos (and we did)! Jan and her partner were very professional, and they had beautiful and fun ideas for photos. They captured every moment of my day and now we have great photos to look back at and remember our wedding. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great photographer for their wedding.

When it came to planning my wedding, I knew one thing from the very start; that I had to have Jan as my photographer! She has been photographing my family's special moments for the past ten years and her work never dissappoints. She was willing to travel 600 miles in order to shoot my wedding. She was there from start to finish, including the rehearsal. She is extremely easy to work with and friendly to boot :) She understands the shots that are important to get and finds creative ways in making those shots. Our pictures are beautiful and stunning and are more than I could have ever hoped for. Jan will not dissappoint her customers and I will continue using her in the future.

Great experience! posted 10/3/2012

I came into the wedding process apprehensive-photographs were the most important to me, yet I did not personally know any Denver-area photographers. I found Jan Pelton rated very high on The Knot, so I decided to give her a shot. From the beginning, she was very professional and laid-back, two qualities I really wanted for our photographer. She let us have our wedding and ceremony and photos "our way" and did a great job of making the flower girl and ring bearer have fun (and behave!). Jan was confident, concise, prepared, and always available for questions. I highly recommend her to anyone that wants a special event captured in the most candid, real way. Thanks, Jan!

She's Brillant! posted 7/11/2012

Jan spent a good hour talking to us and getting to know us at the consultation and then was SO professional and so nice during our engagement pictures (included in the package). When we got the pictures back we were floored at how beutiufl and how "us" they were. Then on the wedding day she came early to make sure she knew the place well and helped calm the frantic bride (me) down a bit. She was quick to get previews back to us and they're BEAUTIFUL! She really got us and what we wanted. The best money we spent for the wedding! Love her and will use her again for any family photos!

Great Photographer posted 6/8/2012

My experience with Jan and her associate, Barb, was nothing less than 5 stars! We had our engagement session and wedding photos taken with Jan and we couldn't be happier. We are still waiting on prints, but I know they will be exceptional. The experience was very memorable and they made it extra special: helping us along the way, allowing us to be a little creative, and making sure they captured all the moments.

Highly recommend posted 3/5/2012

Jan was fabulous -- she made suggestions for pictures, took all of the pictures that we requested (even the weird ones), and was so nice. She and her assistant were quick and efficient without making you feel like they were being quick and efficient: it felt like she was taking her time and arranging poses and pictures and listening to you, while at the same time keeping everything moving. The pictures were AMAZING -- she caught all of the right moments. She also asks you about the style of pictures that you like, and she delivered on the styles that we requested. Excellent photographer.

Love, Love posted 10/31/2011

Jan has been our photographer for a long time. She shot my Senior pictures way back in 1997, my sister's Senior pictures in 2000, and wedding in 2007, and now finally my wedding in October 2011.
I would recommend her to all brides in Colorado. She just has a way of making you feel comfortable while shooting pictures. I didn't even realize she was taking pictures half the time during our wedding reception.
She took pictures of every little detail. Being a bride who obssessed about all the details, loved that she got photos for me to remember every little thing.

Quality photos and reasonable! posted 10/19/2011

My favorite part about working with Jan was that she is easy going and did all of the shots we requested plus some. The poses were natural and unique. We are extremely happy with our photos without feeling like we had to pay a fortune. She had a unique challenge with the natural light and bright sunshine coming through very large windows at our venue. Our photos show that Jan has expertise in taking photos under these circumstances. Both indoor and outdoor photos were beautiful. If I had to select a photographer over again, I would definitely select Jan Pelton Photography.

Amazing Wedding Photos posted 10/17/2011

My family has been using Jan Pelton Photography for over 10 years, so when I became engaged, I knew immediately who I wanted to do my engagement and wedding photos. Jan is extremely easy-going, yet very professional in her approach towards this important day. She asked ahead of time what kinds of pictures we wanted to ensure we didn't forget anything. And she got things I didn't even think of - like photos of the guests at the reception, a beautiful artsy shot of our rings with a bouquet, and some beautifully wrapped gifts. I can honestly say that I love every single one of my wedding photos and it was difficult to choose which ones I wanted to enlarge and frame, because they were all so wonderful in the moments, expressions, and details that Jan captured. Everyone who has seen the photos since the wedding has also been very impressed with the quality of our photographer and how she captured some amazing live action moments, like when my husband carried me down the aisle after our wedding was over, or when he dipped me for our first dance. They turned out beautifully and really captured the feeling of the day. Her assistant is also very good and shot GQ-like poses of the groomsmen. Jan is excellent at manipulating the light to get a desired effect and both indoor and outdoor shots looked great. In the end, I am so glad Jan photographed my wedding and am looking forward to her photographing my sister's wedding next year!

5 Stars! posted 10/17/2011

I highly recommend Jan for anybodies wedding. She was wonderful to work with. I did not have to worry about her one bit on my wedding day. She was there early to look over the location and took absolutely wonderful shots of the whole event. She does beautiful inside and outside photography as well. She is easy to work with to be able to figure out what you want for your wedding and what type of photography you are looking for.

Great Pictures, Great Service posted 10/14/2011

Jan was recommended to me for our wedding by a co-worker who loved working with her as much as we did. Not only does Jan take amazing photos, especially in outdoor settings, but she also pays close attention to details that really make her work shine. Jan is incredibly professional but laid-back which makes her easy to work with. She put my mind at ease during our wedding knowing that she'd arrive early, make sure we got all the photos we wanted, and then did a great job mingling with our guests and capturing photos that are keepsakes for my husband and I. Jan's prices are very reasonable and she can tailor any of her packages to fit your needs. I would highly recommend Jan for any photography needs and we hope to use her again in the future for family pictures and for any other special occasions.
