I'm Janelle. Seattle wedding and senior portrait photographer

Meet your new photographer BFF...

I'm Janelle. A wedding and senior portrait photographer serving the greater Seattle area and PNW. I love taking beautiful pictures... no surprise there! But just as important, I am passionate about creating a personal and elevated photography experience tailored to each individual. I also love adventures throughout Washington, exploring new places, riding my horse, shopping with my girls, reading books, and throwing on sweats for movie night with my husband and kids. I'm equal parts introvert and extrovert. I love "me" time but I crave connection with other people. You will find that I really like to have a good time and great conversation. 

Documenting Stunning Weddings & Confident Seniors

what makes!...

My goal is to capture images that are full of it! Who you are today is someone beautiful, special, and worth celebrating. A few things you will always get from me - my undivided attention, energy, best service, fun photo shoot experiences, and gorgeous pictures. And before your session or event, we will dive into what is most important to you so that I can tailor everything exactly to your needs. 

I know how important confidence is and a big part of what I do is give you the tools to unlock it. All my seniors get a Senior Experience Guide with information they need for an amazing photo shoot experience - complete with location planning and outfit inspiration. And don't worry, no one arrives at a photo shoot knowing how to pose! That's my job. I will always explain, demonstrate, and walk you through every bit of our time together. You are going to look amazing and feel fantastic!

For couples, I work hard to give you peace of mind, build confidence, and make photos on your wedding day joyful and authentic. I am a boutique wedding and event photographer who specializes in curating a one of a kind experience for each individual. You will receive my wedding photography guide and the opportunity to connect with me at any time. I love to focus on a small number of couples in order to give each wedding the very best of me AND to allow myself the opportunity to get to know my couples.

Connection, emotion, and authenticity matter!
