My Promise as your Mexico wedding and elopement Photographer

I met with Janelle before obtaining her services for my Wedding at Agnes Scott.... after our meeting, I was a fan of her as a person; She's a great listener, honest collaborator, highly professional and just all around a nice and very friendly. After getting the photos back from her, my husband, friends and family were all just gobsmacked by the quality of the photos   ...If you want a warm, friendly, and crazy-talented photographer to capture your special day/occasion with all of the elegance and vibrancy of life it deserves, please give Janelle a holler.

Janelle did such a great job of capturing our intimate wedding. I couldn't have asked for a better destination wedding photographer. My husband and I are introverted and not super comfortable in front of a camera, but Janelle was able to help us relax and offered some great prompts. What drew me into her work was her combination of digital and film photography. The film photography has such a soft cinematic feel that it simply can't be captured through digital. I can't recommend her enough!

- Lesley and Divyesh

"Without a doubt, the best wedding photographer Mexico has to offer! Janelle and Jordan are so kind, creative, professional, and have an amazing attention to detail. They were a breeze to work with and they really went the extra mile for us. They were always available for a quick call and really understood our vision, which is so important for any special event. Highly recommend!"

- Amanda & Jay

“I loved working with Janelle. Not only did she provide us with beautiful photos and video of our wedding, but  she was genuinely fun to work with. She added her artistic perspective and professional touch to the final product, and was also considerate of our preferences and any concerns we might have had throughout the entire process. She took her time and really gave her work her all. I would definitely recommend her to a friend.”

- Rachel and Jason

"I've never felt comfortable in front of the camera before. Actually, until I met Janelle I never dreamed that I would be comfortable enough to do an empowerment session, or (two years later) my fiancé and I’s incredible destination engagement session in Mexico! She is so easy to work with. I feel so comfortable in my own skin... Now looking back on our photos, I'm exhilarated every time. I can't believe thats us! Thank you, Janelle!"

- Jordan and Adrian

I met with Janelle before obtaining her services for my Wedding at Agnes Scott. I was a fan of her work (both her instagram account and website portfolio boasts an impressive body of work), but after our meeting, I was a fan of her as a person; She's a great listener, honest collaborator, highly professional and just all around a nice and very friendly. After getting the photos back from her, my husband, friends and family were all just gobsmacked by the quality of the photos and the variety (I really wanted good mix of staged portraits of the bridal party, family, etc and candid photos from throughout the evening) that we received. I have since taken my favorite shots and made a wedding photo album. It was so hard to choose my absolute favorites; we ended up with 97 pages' worth of pictures! 

If you want a warm, friendly, and crazy-talented photographer (with more than reasonable prices to boot) to capture your special day/occasion with all of the elegance and vibrancy of life it deserves, please give Janelle a holler.

- Joan & Max

“ ...From the time of our first meeting, the walk thru, & up until the big day Janelle was such a pleasure to work with! It was all a seamless process. I can tell how serious she takes her work and she listens to every detail you want captured on your day... Would definitely recommend J.J. Au'Clair & hope to work with her again in the future!”

- Steely and Paul

"Janelle photographed our intimate wedding. The photos are exquisite! She and her team were courteous and professional from start to finish. Everyone loves our photos and we will cherish them for a lifetime."

- Angela & David

“J.J. Au’Clair provided photography and videography for our wedding, and we could not have been more pleased with the imagery Janelle and her team produced. What separates them from other professionals in the industry is how well they interacted with our family and friends during the event which put everyone at ease! I highly recommend these folks to shoot your next special event!”

- Holly and Trey

“Janelle did a great job shooting my small wedding. She has such creativity and it shows through her photography. She captured things (like my dress, ring) in a way that accented and escalated their beauty to another level. I was thrilled with the shots she produced for my husband and I.”

- Melissa and Thomas

What your booking helps accomplish

A few years ago, I felt a tug on my heart to give back to our global community. To shift the way that I do business, to include a way to love on others, to make our planet a kinder and more peaceful place for life to grow. This took me on a personal journey, to explore love across cultures and to promote environmentalism in the way I do everything. I now want to share the journey with you!

Every year, I donate 15% of J.J. Au'Clair's profits to great causes. In particular, in 2019 and 2020, my couples and I partnered closely with the Home of Refuge to help build an orphanage, senior citizens home, and to help rebuild two schools located near Cuzco, Peru. 

Now in 2021, we're broadening our horizons. YOU get to decide where the donation from your wedding or portrait session will go!  Your love spreads love<3
