Senior Portraits by Bettinger Photography have been a Colorado tradition for over 50 years.  Bettinger is the oldest family owned portrait studio in Denver. Founded in 1960 by Richard and Norma Bettinger, our fifty years of tradition and a commitment to excellence is what sets us apart from other portraits studios. Daniel Bettinger now continues that tradition. Our Indoor and Outdoor boutique studios are located in the heart of the city near the University of Denver. We are a traditional portrait studio specializing in contemporary senior portraits. We love to capture true expression and the life in people’s eyes. We strive to make images that show the youthful spirit and maturity of a high school senior. Each client is unique and different and our goal is to create portraits that meet your every expectation.

“least sale-sy experience he ever had.” VERY PLEASED! So thank you for your non-pushy and respectful approach." Marilyn B.

"KUDOS to you and Dan!!! My family portrait is FANTASTIC!!!!!  When I opened it, I started crying, to see my beautiful family, and all of the hard work that goes into them.  Thank you for a daily reminder of what God has blessed me with.  Thanks!!" Mary M. 

"Just want you to know how MUCH I appreciate you working with me to get this once-in-a-lifetime photo. In January my husband and I will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and this photo is what I ask for from my family.  Thank you sooooooooo much for making this a wonderful experience!!!!!" Jean M.

"What a wonderful experience we had getting our family photo taken Saturday. Dan was so so wonderful to work with and my daughter was completely "at ease" with him, even saying she had fun on the way home." Sharon R.

"Just a huge thank you for the excellent service provided to my family. You were quick and professional." Lisa B.

I definitely appreciated the artistry and expertise with which you handled us. It isn't easy, but it looks easy, so I suppose many people take photos for granted. I don't! When we sat to choose some prints, I knew it would be expensive. But how do you pay someone for years and years of devotion, knowledge, and practice? It was not at all expensive when you take into account such a large amount of time and talent. 

So thanks again for being our photographer." Nick D.


"We received our portrait today and we are very very very happy! The photographer did great, the sales repwas fun to work with. Every time I called the studio to ask a question everyone was very polite and sweet!" Ray R.
