I get it. Let's talk about the experience.

First and foremost, I want you feeling at ease - totally 100% comfortable and in your own skin. Because when that happens, your true personality shines through. And that right there is what each photo session is all about (wedding day or otherwise).  
Hiring the right photographer is much more than photos. It’s about creating heirlooms that will be passed down to future generations, contributing to the heritage of your family, that feel completely and totally YOU.  I'm here to get all the good stuff, and save it for you forever.

The Experience

intimate 
nuptials

For the conscious couple celebrating their union and love somewhere meaningful and magical— elopement style or "intimate" wedding style with 50 guests or less.  I offer a fully customizable packaging approach. You'll get everything you want, and nothing you don't. Start with the basics, then feel free to add options for a steamy session, video, organic printed artwork,  and more! 

Everything is super easy, super straight-forward, and designed with you in mind.

What are you waiting for

to show up authentically?

"Janelle, you made me feel like a rockstar!

"The best part about working with you was that I never felt awkward. We loved your encouragement, and the fact that you were always directing us through the movements. You captured our love perfectly. I am forever grateful for these photos, Janelle Lynne! Thank you so much! 

Elopeed!

"...Sometimes you need someone else to see you when you can't see yourself. That's exactly what Janelle does.

"I didn't know what I wanted from these photos. I know that [before] I didn't feel powerful, or beautiful— ... My session with Janelle was healing. She directed me through one of the most raw, powerful, and beautiful experiences of my life. I was witnessed, I felt seen, and beautiful. I cannot recommend working with Janelle enough if you get the chance. She gets it. She sees beyond.  And I am grateful forever.

was Wholly seen & Celebrated

"Guapaaaa— The experience you gave Xahil and I was out of this world fun!

"Damn these gifs are beautiful, and I even like myself in the photos! Taking photos with you was so so easy. You already know  it, but you really are amazing! The gallery of photos you delivered is such a gift. Thank you, Janelle!

"If we could, we would book her all over again— she's just that good!

"We LOVED working with Janelle for our little wedding. Our photos are unique and creative, but also timeless and classy. She was very attentive to our desires and so helpful with the planning. Janelle even helped us out with our flowers! We will cherish her work for years to come and are so excited for our album. You won't regret booking Janelle, it was an awesome experience.

Had a destination wedding!

"I was so apprehensive waiting to see my photos...I knew they are raw, I left bare in the best way.

"Let me just say these photos are amazing!!!! I am so grateful to have done this session, and that I can have them all [the photos]! I could never pick just a few. Furthermore, the day of our session was a beautiful day and an awesome experience meeting Janelle and spending time with her. My heart is full. 

Tiffany

Liberated herself

"Janelle offers a superior photography experience!

"Janelle captures not only the people, but the MOMENT and the feeling. She covered  our daughter's wedding very well and provided us with excellent photos. She knows how to creatively shoot, not just produce an assortment of traditionally posed pictures. Which came as a surprise for us, since we haven't seen anything like it before! Highly recommended!

Were pleasantly surprised

Sarah + Sally

"Without a doubt, the best wedding photographer Mexico has to offer!

 Janelle and her team  are so kind, creative, professional, and have an amazing attention to detail. She was a breeze to work with and they really went the extra mile for us. She was always available for a quick call. We also had an empowerment session before the wedding, which is perfect if you want to feel like a goddess on your wedding day. I had complete trust in her! Highly recommend!

Got Married!

"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 steamy 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 still in love. I can't believe thats us! Thank you, Janelle!

Jordan

Fell in Love with herself.

"We had so much fun just hiking to the private beach— then the photoshoot began.

Janelle made what would otherwise be a really awkward situation feel incredibly normal. We were especially excited about her GIFs, which are obviously soo sexy. I personally can't wait to do it again!

Adam

Surprised his boyfriend!

Amanda

"For the first time in my life, I looked at my pictures and I truly, truly felt beautiful. If you choose to work with Janelle, you will not regret it. 

finally felt beautful!

Caesar

"After meeting with Janelle at our first consultation, I was fan of her as a person.

"And after getting the photos back, we  were all gobsmacked by the quality of the photos and the editorial creativity we received. We just had to order a wedding photo album! It was so hard to choose my absolute favorites; we ended up with 97 pages worth. If you want a warm, friendly, and crazy-talented photographer to capture your special day with all of the elegance and vibrancy of life it deserves, please give Janelle a holler.

Sealed the Deal!

"You are simply the BEST, Janelle!

"Oh my goodness, I am absolutely in love with these photos! Every time we look through them, it feels like we're right there in the moment again. I've gone through the whole thing like 3 times already. I'm so glad you chose you for our engagement and wedding photos, and I can’t wait to have you take my maternity photos and family portraits in the future. You are simply the BEST, Janelle!

"Janelle, you did a great job!

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. 

What drew us into her work was her ease, and 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!

Book me now to lock in your date, and rest assured that I got your back!

If you haven't noticed yet, the end of 2021 and all of 2022 are crazy busy for the wedding industry. You really want to book your dream team of vendors for your elopement, or intimate wedding, but aren't sure of whats going to happen next.  I get how it can be a little scary to plan your wedding with everything that's happened in 2020 and 2021. And believe me, I heard horror stories about couples who had to cancel or reschedule their weddings and their venues and vendors just... were not helpful. 

That's why I offer a guarantee— if disaster strikes and we have another lockdown or global pandemic, I won't hold it against you. We'll work together to reschedule your date without any change fees (up to 2 years later), or I'll refund you everything. Yep, I'll even give you back your deposit.
