Hello! Thanks for requesting more information about my services!!
I would love to introduce myself and provide answers to some frequently asked questions :)
I’m Janelle, the lady behind the camera! My business is based out of the Inland Empire in Southern California, also serving Los Angeles and Orange County. I get to work alongside other talented photographers who share the same passion for photography. Together, we strive to capture fresh, beautiful, and timeless images for clients who share a love for natural light, meaningful details, and timeless romance.
Outside of photography, I like to spend time out exploring with my husband and three little munchkins, eating at local restaurants (any break from cooking is nice), dreaming up new house projects, and hosting bbq’s with family & friends.

It is a surreal feeling to plan a wedding. From the moment your love puts a ring onto your finger to your very first dance as husband and wife! You may have been dreaming of this day since you were a little girl, and now the process has just begun. Thanks to Pinterest, you might have had your ideal wedding photos already collected on aboard, and now it’s a matter of bringing them to life. I believe that every bride deserves those dreamy wedding photos to cherish for years, but it doesn’t just happen by hiring someone to show up with a camera. Getting amazing wedding photos begins and ends with an incredible experience. We can achieve this together!
We have moved into the digital age where so many images get lost on an iphone, computer, or usb drive. We have to preserve our memories beyond the click of a shutter. An album goes beyond a canvas or beautiful frame set out on a shelf for your guests to see. It is an heirloom to pass on to your children’s children. A wedding album will be passed as an heirloom just like your diamond wedding ring! It will be priceless to your family! Many people put this off and never get around to ordering one. It’s something we shouldn’t let pass us by. I offer high quality albums to my clients, and if they are ordered at the time of booking, they are at a discounted rate!
8X10” 20 PAGE ALBUM | $300
10×10” 20 PAGE ALBUM | $500
12×12” 30 PAGE ALBUM | $800
Additional 2 spread upgrade | $50
Frequently Asked Questions...
Choosing a location and outfits is the hardest part, so I am here to help! I offer styling ideas and I even offer my favorite location options for whatever scenery you want. I am very open to your ideas and vision as well! You receive about 55-70 digital images from your engagement session, and they are delivered about 3-4 weeks after your shoot.
Most couples receive about 60-75 edited images for each hour our team is at your wedding. Your files are delivered in a beautiful gallery online that makes sharing with your friends and family easy! You also have download access and can print professional quality prints from your gallery that are delivered directly to your door!
If you are getting ready onsite and have only one ceremony and reception location, 8 hours of coverage is most likely perfect for you. If you have 2-3 locations or you want a special exit captured, you may need to think about adding an additional 1-2 hours of coverage for us to get to all of your special moments!
MY SHOOTING STYLE:
I like to consider myself a fine art photojournalistic photographer, because I take the elements of fine art photography and mix them with the photojournalistic approach. What that means is, I am moving back and forth throughout the day from directing, setting up styled artistic shots, to stepping back and allowing moments to unfold naturally. I believe there are times where you need me to take control and keep things moving along, and then there are moments that you shouldn’t even know I am there. This is my approach on a wedding day.
Your date can be reserved with a non-refundable retainer of 50% of your wedding collection. The final payment is due 30 days prior to your wedding. All contracts and payments can be mailed for a good old fashioned simple process or we also offer online payments as well. However, if you would like to meet me in person before taking the next step –I would love to meet you! Let’s schedule a time for coffee or a chat over a glass of wine. You deserve to get to know your wedding photographer before making the big decision!
