Sunset is my favourite time to shoot engagement sessions at Elk Island National Park. If we’re traveling all the way out to the park for a shoot, I’m gonna request that we schedule in the extra 20 minute drive out to Astotin Lake. It’s worth it.

Branton proposed to Jacquie on a beach in Barbados. It’s not as pristine as the shores of the Pacific, but we found some sand to frolic in. It’s a popular location so we had to compete with locals and other visitors to find some peaceful dock space as the sun went down.

Hi, my name is Janelle, I’m a photographer from Edmonton Alberta. I’m all about three things: celebration, connection and client education. My style is relaxed and romantic. I love intimate weddings, the kind where I get to know your family and friends. I thrive when meeting new people.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 the epic dance parties.

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