About Me

“Your photography is a record of your living, for anyone who really sees.”

–Paul Strand

Hi, I’m Janel!

I tell love stories through my lens. 

I believe that every couple has their own unique love story, and it is my mission to tell that story through my photography. The result will be beautiful images that you and your partner will treasure forever.

Whether it’s a proposal, a home photo session, an intimate dinner, or a day on the beach, I will document it all; the laughter, the tears, and everything in between. I want you to look back on your photos and fall in love with each other all over again.

How I capture love through photos

There are many ways to approach couple portrait photography. To me, the most important thing is to find a style that captures the essence of the couple and their relationship. In a nutshell, this is how I work

Get to know the couple

I spend some time talking with you about your relationship and what you love about each other. This will help me understand what kind of story you want to tell with your photos.

Choose a location that is special to the couple

This could be the place where you first met, got engaged, or even just a place that has personal meaning to you. The location will help set the tone for the shoot.

Think about the mood I want to create

Couple portraits can be playful and fun, or they can be romantic and intimate. I choose a style that matches the couple’s personality.

Pay attention to the details

The little things are what make couple portrait photography so special. From the way they interact with each other, to the expressions on their faces, to the smallest details of their clothing – everything should be considered when composing my shots.

Tell their story

The best couple portraits are those that capture the couple’s unique love story. I choose the best pictures and begin the process of telling their story in a creative and attractive way.

FAQ

When photographing a couple, I want to focus on the connection between them. This means capturing both the emotions and physicality of their relationship. Look for opportunities to capture tender moments as well as playful interactions. And be sure to pay attention to the little details that make their relationship special.

There’s no wrong time to do a couple portrait photoshoot. However, there are a few things to consider when planning your session. First, think about the season. Each time of year has its own unique beauty, so choose a time that will best suit your vision. You’ll also want to factor in any special occasions that you might want to commemorate with photos. If you’re not sure when to schedule your session, just ask me for guidance.

The best time for a portrait session is typically when the sun is low in the sky, such as early morning or late afternoon. This gives you the benefit of softer light, which is more flattering for photography. However, if you are willing to get up early or stay out late, the golden hour – just before sunrise or just after sunset – can provide even more beautiful lighting for your portraits.

When it comes to couple photography, what you wear is up to you. However, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, consider the location of your shoot. If you’re doing an outdoor session, dress for the weather and terrain. For indoor shoots, think about the overall aesthetic you’re going for. You may also want to coordinate your outfits so that you complement each other without being too matchy-matchy. Also, I usually advise my customers against using patterns, letters, paintings, or bright colors. These might take the viewer’s attention away from the picture’s main theme – your bond. Whatever you decide, just be sure that you’re comfortable and feel like yourselves.

The best way to capture natural-looking couple portraits is to let the couple interact with each other while I take the photo. This could involve anything from holding hands and looking into each other’s eyes, to playful banter and laughing together. 

Some of my favorite couple poses for portrait photography are standing, walking, sitting, lying down, leaning on a wall, holding hands, kissing, kissing the hand or the forehead, hugging, hugging from behind, holding the other person’s face, sexy and classy poses, doing something silly, and lots more.

I just let them be themselves and have fun – this will result in the most genuine-looking photos!

Your love story is the best fairy tale, and I would be honored to be the one to tell it.
