This morning (aka the last day of 2019) I took a look through my galleries and rounded up some of my favourite moments from 2019. Some of them are messy and none of them are perfect. They’re moments that tell a story and celebrate connection, warmth and gratitude. Looking back gives me time to value each connection I made this year and each special moment and celebration I was privileged to be a part of. Here are my favourite moments of 2019.

Hi, my name is Janelle, I’m an photographer hailing from Edmonton Alberta.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.

  I value connection and celebration of moments over a big production.
