About Developing Diamonds Photography LLC

Developing Diamonds Photography LLC

Photographer/Owner

My name is Elliot Stokes and I am a photographer located in the Madison, WI area, but I work all across Wisconsin and Illinois. I have been drawn to the camera since I was young, but becoming a father has really shown me the magic behind capturing the most candid and beautiful moments of our lives. I started my journey into professional photography officially in the summer of 2019 and received my Bachelors of Fine Arts degree with honors in Digital Photography in the spring of 2022. I absolutely love what I do and look forward to every new experience and opportunity this journey takes me on!

I am a full time event photographer and capturing these monumental moments for all the great couples I've worked with has been such an honor of mine. I truly love being able to tell stories with my craft and freeze these beautiful moments for people. I take pride in my work and I take my craft very seriously. Wedding and event photography is everything to me and all i do, so I am always available for my couples and I take a lot of pride in my communication. I also provide same-day sneak peeks as well as a drone video so my couples can relive their day instantly!

    Absolutely incredible. He scouted out our shoot spot after a storm hit, incredible response time and turn around time but above all, just absolutely kind and you really felt like you got to know him in the time span of taking your photos. As people who have never had professional photos done and don’t like getting our photos taken at all, it was an incredible choice and we are SO glad we went with Developing Diamonds. Our family and friends loved them and couldn’t believe how well he was able to capture the moments where we were posed but it didn’t look like it. We recommend to everyone.

    Book with Elliot now!! I stumbled across Developing Diamonds Photography randomly on Facebook and found myself deep diving into all of the photos. I was so impressed by the romantic look and feel and knew that was exactly what I wanted for our big day! Elliot was very responsive to all of my emails and questions. When we met for our engagement pictures even my husband, who hates pictures, had an enjoyable time. Elliot is very personable and truly gets to know you as a couple. The day of the wedding he was on time and professional. He listed to all my wants and needs in pictures I was looking for. After seeing our sneak peek at the wedding I couldn't wait to see our final pictures! They were back within a week and they were stunning! I couldn't ask for a better experience and would recommend Elliot to anyone!

    Working with Elliot was absolutely incredible. We had a large wedding party with a lot of moving parts throughout the day. He was the solo photographer on the contract and absolutely killed it! He made sure to get every shot requested from every family member! The weather was a bit tricky, and he was sure to have clear umbrellas on hand just in case - and a white-lined clear umbrella just for the bride/groom, large enough for both of them to fit underneath. Thank goodness he did, because it started to rain just as we got onto Lambeau Field for the bridal party pictures! He edited a few photos on-site and put together a little slideshow for the clients to play at the same day at Reception prior to his departure for the evening! Absolute DIAMOND of a photographer :)

    Elliot was so great to work with through the entire process from planning to photos on the wedding day. Both the posed photos and candid photos turned out amazing and we're so happy with them! He also brought two interns with him who were great, and one got some wonderful footage of our ceremony.
