Award winning elopement and wedding photography and videography awaiting your biggest life adventure.

Your love story is personal… Your photography and videography experience should be, too!!  

Our award-winning team of passionate storytellers is dedicated to making sure your unique vision and aesthetic come to life, and ensuring your imagery is the absolute best reflection of who you are and what you’re wanting. Your photos should speak exactly to your vision. After all, these images will be hanging on YOUR walls for decades to come – not ours. (Although our office full of client photos kinda nullifies that statement) Your images should be one of the most personal and truly reflective parts of your entire wedding and elopement experience.

It’s for this reason that we actually open up the editing style process to our couples, allowing YOU to pick what your photos look like in the end. Even if you’re not sure if you want “dark and moody” or “light and airy” or something in-between, we’ll work with you to create the perfect reflection of your day so that your memories are preserved the way you want! Why settle for a cookie-cutter preset when you can create your own? With our intentional communication, we can help discover, create, and perfect your elopement or wedding photography &/or videography aesthetic.

Andrea and her team have all been incredible to work with! I knew photography was one of my top "no skimp" areas and Andrea was able to capture everything we wanted! Many of our extended family were not able to attend our ceremony due to COVID, but were able to "experience" everything through the photos we shared. From engagement shoot, to bridal portraits, to actual wedding, to even an extra shoot after the wedding in the mountains--her talent and skill is beyond anyone else I have seen! Even my husband (who does not love to be photographed) feels comfortable during our sessions and agrees she is worth every penny and more! We love her and will definitely continue to work with her for years to come!


I would not have wanted anyone else to be the photographer for my wedding and engagement pictures. She was absolutely AMAZING! Super sweet and easy to work with. Flexibility was also a strong suit. If you come prepared with Pinterest or not, she has great ideas! I will continue using her for photos for other monumental life events! if you want your pictures to be stunning, then you NEED Andrea, you won't regret it!


This post could go on and on and on and on, so I’ll try to keep it short-ish! 🤣 Amative Creative is absolutely sensational! Let me tell you how my first ever interaction with Andrea Caresse Lewis went. As soon as she answered the phone she will filled with pure excitement to have the opportunity to work with Luis and I! Her passion for wedding photography was easily noted and upon hearing our wedding style and our sweet love story, she was hooked! (As were we! 😉) Her ability to acquire all inspos and complete a long list of shots to ensure wete captured on our big day is comendable. If you know Luis and I, you know how much we LOVE photo shoots. Of all the ones we have been a part of, this one had extra magic and love, but not only from us, but from her entire crew! We booked the largest wedding package she offers to get all the perks, shots, and video coverage. We got some sneak peaks of the footage they obtained as they were shot and O M GEEEEE, we were left speechless! Truly the combination of image quality, percision, lighting, and angles were consistantly spot on. Also, we must mention how the entire crew quicjky became our personal hype team and were sure to let us know how beautiful we were and how lucky we both are to have one another. I truly want to thank each and every member of Amative Creative, you have capture some sensational shots that you sent our way as previews and we are sitting on the edge of our seats waiting for all the rest to come flowing our way, especially our highlight real! 😍🤩😍🤩 The contentment we feel regarding you and your staff, as well as your image production is proclaimed by our guests, fellow vendors, and venue staff! Super easy to get along with and felt instantly comfortable being your models! Thank you a million and one times! Hoping to book more sessions with you in the future: Holidays are approaching and you KNOW we did our first ever holiday card photos! 😉😘 ❤️The Benitez Family


All of our love and praises for Andrea and the whole Amative Creative team cannot be summarized in 3500 characters! Andrea has the perfect balance of professionalism and BFF energy, and she and her team have been so wonderful to work with. From our first consult call, to the days leading up to our wedding - she helped us carry out our vision for the picture perfect day. She is patient, kind, creative - and 1000% hardworking. Even our photographers for the wedding, Francesca & Julianna were so much fun to work with! They were so flexible, easy-going, and made us feel so comfortable in front of a camera (my husband and I are camera-shy, haha). They captured so many amazing moments, from our first-touch to our photoshoot with my husband's car (which were some of our favorite photos!) We also were so blown away with the photos we got back - the editing was top notch, and it really captured the love and excitement from our wedding! Cannot recommend Amative Creative enough!
