Meet Janelle

Edmonton Wedding Photographer
& Level 10 Cleric

Style & Vision

 

I’m all about connection and celebration. Seriously, it’s my focus from our first client meeting till the chicken dance starts.

I make an effort to get to know your closest friends and family on your wedding day. Why? First, they’re probably cool people, and second, when they know me as “Janelle” the gal who plays Dungeons and Dragons and has a pet Duck, they’re going to let me into their world.

My favourite moment of every wedding is right after the ceremony. This is when your friends and family smother or possibly crush you with either love or cheerful embrace. Bring on all the candid moments.

 

Professional Development

 

I’m invested in what I do. Each year I strive to learn more. I am thankful to have attended We Three Workshops and Alpine North West. I had the opportunity to learn with the best of the best.

I’m also a student affairs nerd, currently pursuing a Certificate in Adult Learning Specializing in Career and Academic Advising with the University of Calgary.

 

Background

 

I grew up just outside Edmonton AB, Canada, and I continue to call this river valley city home today. I love Edmonton for it’s local events and festivals, and also for my ability to easily escape back into the rural lifestyle.

On weekdays, I work at the University of Alberta for the Students’ Union where I am fortunate enough to support the student experience.

Weeknights you’ll find me down at the dock at the Edmonton Rowing Club. My favourite Edmonton activity is always a night out at Rapid Fire Theatre. When I’m out about driving around I’m listening to Hello Internet.

Words can't begin how highly I would recommend Janelle as a wedding photographer. She took all the pressure off of us as a couple and we were able to enjoy our wedding day without thinking for one moment about how photos would turn out. We gave her very limited direction but she was still able to deliver exactly what we wanted, and these are photos we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

My darling photographer, Janelle. As a couple, we didn't have very many bright ideas for pictures, but Janelle more than made up for it. Everyone raves about our wedding pictures. She has such a good eye and my photos are definitely one of my most treasured possessions now.

Janelle is such an amazing photographer, and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. She photographed our small and casual wedding and we could not have hoped for a better photographer. Her attitude is both down to earth and professional, and she was able to capture so many beautiful candid moments, while making any posed photos fun. She has an excellent eye, and we are absolutely in love with her style and how the finished photos came out. The turn around for the photos was also fast! She even sent us a few on the day of the wedding, which was such a lovely gift after a whirlwind of a day. We cannot recommend her enough!

We've had the opportunity to be photographed by Janelle on numerous occasions. It has been such a pleasure watching her hone her skills and build her photography portfolio over the years. Janelle is great at capturing both the exciting and quiet moments of special occasions. She is patient when working with people who are not often photographed and we appreciate that she doesn't try to pose anyone in ways they are not comfortable. This makes for images that are authentic and genuinely candid. We often recommend Janelle to all our family and friends!

Working with Janelle was one of the highlights of our wedding. She honestly went above and beyond in every way, and she was extremely professional, from our initial meeting to after the wedding day. She was fun, inclusive, and made us feel as comfortable as if we were spending time with a friend trying to capture the best moments for our specific story - something really important for such a personal day. It didn't feel like she was focused on trying to get generic wedding photographer portfolio shots. She took great care of us on our wedding day, and she works very hard and efficiently - we even had our photos earlier than expected!
