    Such a fun and comfortable experience!

    Elaine is local to central PA, affordable and such a delight to work with! Our engagement session was the first time we have had professional photos done together. My husband and I used her services not only for our engagement but for our wedding as well. We are very excited and happy with how the photos turned out. I feel I do not photograph well at all yet Elaine made me feel/look so beautiful in them! It was very comfortable and easy going during the sessions and she is very prompt with communication. I had such a great time working with Elaine and would absolutely recommend her for any of your photography needs!

    Wonderful & Professional Photographer!

    Elaine has photographed my wedding, my sister's wedding and my nephew's newborn photos. Elaine is amazing to work with and made everything so easy! She was an absolute dream on my wedding day, keeping everyone on schedule while capturing all of the pictures I wanted and more! It was a pleasure working with her and hopefully she will be able to take more pictures for our family in the future!

    Elaine Gates Photographer's reply:

    Thank you, Kim! I'm so glad that I have been able to photograph so many important moments for your family. Thank you for choosing Elaine Gates Photography!
