My name is Anya. Anya Elise is what I go by around these parts. I specialize in editorial and lifestyle photography. There’s a beautiful candor that exists in every event, whether an engagement or wedding celebration, a family photo shoot, or perhaps in the midst of a press conference. From a helicopter ride around your city, to a community’s New Year’s celebration, a certain honesty is there in the small details between the big displays. That’s where I like to sit and wait with camera in hand, to capture those discrete, sincere moments.
I am a staff photographer for the YourHub section of the Denver Post. Which means you can usually find me flying solo, rockin’ out loud karaoke-style to playlists as I drive to and from assignments all over the neighborhoods of the Denver metro area.
This is my personal photography website where I talk all things photos, running a studio, favorite shoots, behind-the-scenes looks, et al. (If you’re looking for more personal blogging about life in general, life in Denver, life as a wife, you name it, please visit signedanyaelise.com. It’s a newer venture I’m giving a run, so take a look. Let me know what you think.)
Have questions about photo sessions or pricing or just want to chat? Send me an email! (Or fill out the handy contact form below. You’re nearly there. Scroll down just a tiny bit more.)
Anya’s work has appeared in The New York Times, The Denver Post, The Loveland Report-Herald, Denver Catholic Register, Angie’s List magazine, Vintage Life magazine, and other editorial clients.
She is based in Denver, Colo., with her husband, Dan Petty.
