We are so grateful to have the opportunity to capture amazing weddings and people in Indianapolis and throughout the world. Photos help you to continue to experience moments for years to come. It is our drive, and passion, to capture these beautiful moments beyond your expectations.
We are photographers and husband and wife Jennifer & Steven Van Elk and we's be honored to capture special moments in your life.
We are college sweethearts (BSU), who met through mutual friends in Indianapolis. We married August 16th, 2008, right out of college, just 16 mos after we started dating. We have two kids, Iain and Nora.
We love to share things that make us laugh. You'll find us on our free time together visiting local breweries and trying new restaurants. Our travel plans sometimes revolves around which breweries and restaurants we should visit, but we also love the outdoors.
Although we work together, we try to spend as much quality time together, usually snuggled up on the couch watching a movie, after the kids are asleep. These are some of our favorite times together.
During our free time Jenn loves to run, read, being outdoors with the kids, or pick up new hobbies- like playing the ukulele. She is lipstick and shoe obsessed. Steven is typically reading his kindle, listening to podcasts, making delicious food, or playing "horsy" with our two little ones.

These two were amazing and their pictures were stunning! They felt like family at our reception and with our engagement shoot! I'd recommend them to anyone! They truly were a dream to work with - I couldn't have asked for more!
Their photos are amazing. We did an engagement shoot and our wedding with them and both were perfect. Also, an added bonus was having access to our photos only ONE WEEK after our wedding. I wasn't expecting this, and it was an amazing surprise. The quality of what you're getting from Team Van Elk is certainly worth the price, I promise!
The one word we would use to describe our experience with Jenn and Steve is WOW! There is no better duo to photograph your special day. Professional, kind, relatable, sweet, authentic, fun and just all around amazing. We are BEYOND thankful that these two captured every moment and emotion of our wedding day. Our photos were incredible - and we will treasure them forever.
For five years that my husband and I dated, I always knew that JVE Photo would be the one I would wan to capture our wedding. Her kind heart and attention to detail were the first two things that stood out to me...
... We contacted her, and she was willing to give up one of her vacation days to ensure she could shoot our wedding in July... We were THRILLED to receive our wedding photos back... I would recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality, friendly, and caring photographer!
From the very beginning when booking with her, she was prompt to respond to all of my questions and easy to contact. Our pictures turned out gorgeous! I felt like she really cared about us and went the extra mile to make sure she captured everything my husband and I wanted on our special day. I was very impressed with how fast we received our wedding photos. My husband and I had a Christian and Hindu Ceremony in the same day and Jenn did not miss a single detail! She is very experienced and I would highly recommend her!
