“We really couldn't have asked for a better 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. I can't recommend her enough!
Lesley and Divyesh:
I completely understand how you feel when you're in front of the camera, I'm "not a model" either. However, I've discovered how far some self love and acceptance can go! The best thing you can do is show up authentically— laugh, cry, scream (so therapeutic), and let go of your comfort zone.
I'll do all the work to help you live in the moment, and realize that you truly are beautiful.
(p.s. Afterwards, we'll have the photos to prove it!)
your Santa Barbara elopement photographer and empowering BFF.
