not things.

Jana Marie was PHENOM! My now husband and I are both designers so the photographs of our wedding were extremely important to us, we had very specific ideas of how we wanted them to turn out...talk about pressure. However, Jana met all of our expectations & more. She was able to capture every single perfect minute of our day in an artistic yet breathtakingly beautiful way. When the photos were finished I was absolutely blown away. I couldn't believe how each of her images captured the exuding amount of joy and love felt by everyone on that day. They were fantastic. Not only are Jana & Philip truly gifted photographers, but they are also the most amazing people. We felt so blessed to get to share our special day with them. From the moment we met them we hit it off and had such a blast. I would recommend JMP to anyone. She is absolutely amazing & worth every penny.

"i was absolutely blown away"

WE KNEW SHE WAS PERFECT FOR WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR. JANA SPENT A WEEK WITH OUR FAMILY IN MEXICO DURING OUR DESTINATION WEDDING IN AUGUST. SHE BECAME FAMILY DURING OUR TRIP! DURING THE ENTIRE PROCESS SHE WAS VERY FLEXIBLE AND OVERALL SHE IS A VERY TALENTED ARTIST. WE WERE SO HAPPY WITH THE QUALITY OF THE PICTURES AND THE UNIQUENESS OF JANA’S WORK. SHE IS A WONDERFUL PERSON AND MAKES YOU FEEL AT EASE. JOE AND I CANNOT EXPRESS HOW GRATEFUL WE ARE FOR ALL THAT SHE HAS DONE FOR US. MOST OF ALL, WE APPRECIATE HER MAKING HERSELF AVAILABLE TO HELP US FULFILL OUR DREAMS AND CAPTURE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DAYS OF OUR LIVES.

"BY FAR FILLED MY EXPECTATIONS"

OH, JANA!! HANDS DOWN THE BEST INVESTMENT WE COULD HAVE MADE! PHOTOGRAPHY WAS ABSOLUTELY MY TOP PRIORITY WHILE WEDDING PLANNING. WHEN MY FIANCÉ, MOTHER AND I SAT DOWN WITH JANA, HER PROFESSIONALISM, JOYFUL ATTITUDE, STYLE, & ATTENTION TO DETAIL WERE JUST A FEW OF THE THINGS THAT MADE US WALK AWAY FROM THAT FIRST CONSULT KNOWING SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY GOING TO BE OUR PHOTOGRAPHER. HER WORK SPEAKS FOR ITSELF - SHE PRODUCES THE MOST AMAZING PHOTOS THAT ARE LIGHT AND FRESH, VIBRANT, ARTISTIC, MEANINGFUL, EMOTIONAL, & STUNNING. JANA MARIE MADE US FEEL SO COMFORTABLE & CREATED A SAFE SPACE FULL OF LAUGHS & SPECIAL MOMENTS. HER POSITIVITY WAS CONTAGIOUS & WE HAD A BLAST. WHEN WE GOT THOSE PHOTOS BACK, I COULD NOT STOP SMILING! THEY CAUGHT SO MANY TOUCHING MOMENTS AND BEAUTIFUL IMAGES & ADDED TO OUR DAY BY BEING SO FUN-LOVING, SUPPORTIVE, & CARING. OUR PARENTS & BRIDAL PARTY STILL TALK ABOUT HER TO THIS DAY AND EVERYONE ADORES OUR PHOTOS. I ALSO HAVE TO SAY THAT HER REPUTATION IS OUTSTANDING IN THE WEDDING INDUSTRY & BEYOND. THIS. IS. YOUR. GIRL. PETER AND I BOTH FEEL LIKE WE HAVE KNOWN HER FOR YEARS AND HOPE TO CONTINUE BUILDING UPON THAT FRIENDSHIP IN YEARS TO COME - WHETHER IT BE FUTURE FAMILY PHOTO SHOOTS OR HAVING SOME MORE PICNICS ON THE NELSON LAWN, JUST FOR FUN! WE LOOK FORWARD TO KEEPING UP WITH ALL OF THE ADVENTURES HER INCREDIBLE WORK TAKES HER ON! THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS, JANA MARIE!

"HANDS DOWN THE BEST INVESTMENT WE COULD HAVE MADE!"

Jana has been our photographer for infant photo sessions and family lifestyle sessions over the course of 4 years. She is incredibly talented and flexible, with an ability to transform an ordinary environment into extraordinary photographic results. She captures the best available light sources, incorporates architectural elements to frame shots, and most importantly - manages to make us all look amazing in each shot! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services-you will not be disappointed.

"SHE HAS AN ABILITY TO TRANSFORM AN ORDINARY ENVIRONMENT INTO EXTRAORDINARY PHOTOGRAPHIC RESULTS"

JANA MARIE WAS MY PHOTOGRAPHER AT MY WEDDING THIS PAST SUMMER AND SHE IS WELL WORTH IT. THE PHOTOS WERE BEYOND WHAT I COULD HAVE HOPED FOR AND SHE SEEMED TO BE ABLE TO CATCH EVERY DETAIL AND EMOTION. HER PHOTOGRAPHY TELLS A STORY ABOUT HER SUBJECTS AND SHE TOLD OURS HOW WE SAW THE DAY UNFOLD. FROM START TO FINISH SHE WAS PRESENT FOR EVERY MOMENT. AND THE BEST PART, YOU WOULDN'T HAVE EVEN KNOWN SHE WAS THERE. HER AND HER ROCKSTAR HUSBAND PHILIP ARE SO GRACIOUS AND POISED THAT THEY BLEND IN WITH THE GUESTS. THEY MAKE EVERYONE FEEL COMFORTABLE AND HAD THE ENTIRE FAMILY LAUGHING. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND SPLURGING FOR THE BANANA WHO? BOOTH AS WELL. IT WAS THE BIGGEST HIT AT THE WEDDING BY FAR. AND EVERYONE GETS TO TAKE A PICTURE HOME WITH THEM AS WELL AS ONE FOR THE BRIDE & GROOM. I LAUGHED SO HARD I HAD TEARS IN MY EYES LOOKING THROUGH THE PHOTOS.OVERALL IF YOU WANT A PHOTOGRAPHER WHO WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH, TAKE BEYOND BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS AND BE THERE WHEN YOU NEED IT AND BEHIND THE SCENES WHEN YOU DON'T THEN YOU NEED TO HIRE JANA MARIE PHOTOGRAPHY. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

BRYAN AND I HAVE LOVED WORKING WITH JANA! SHE DID OUR ENGAGEMENT PICTURES JUST LAST WEEK, AND WE RECEIVED THEM ONLY A FEW DAYS LATER AND COULDN'T BE MORE THRILLED WITH THEM. SHE CAPTURES EMOTIONAL PERFECTLY, AND SHE'S CREATIVE AND UNIQUE IN HER STYLE. NOT TO MENTION SHE KNEW HOW TO TALK US THROUGH THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION SO WE GOT COMFORTABLE AND HAD FUN WITH IT, TO GET THE BEST PHOTOS POSSIBLE. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND JANA!!

"COULDN'T BE MORE THRILLED"

MY HUSBAND AND I HIRED JANA TO PHOTOGRAPH OUR DESTINATION WEDDING IN BEAUTIFUL PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO. THE DECISION TO FLY IN OUR OWN PHOTOGRAPHER WAS A DIFFICULT ONE BUT, WE KNEW JANA'S WORK AND DIDN'T WANT TO SACRIFICE ONE MOMENT OF OUR WEDDING EXPERIENCE. TO SAY WE WERE PLEASED WITH OUR DECISION WOULD BE AN IMMENSE UNDERSTATEMENT. OF COURSE WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE THE MEMORIES BUT, JANA PROVIDED US WITH A WAY RELIVE OUR ENTIRE EXPERIENCE IN SUCH A WONDERFUL WAY WITH ALL OF OUR STUNNING PICTURES!

WHEN MY WEDDING PLANNER SENT OVER JANA MARIE'S INFORMATION, I KNEW SHE WAS PERFECT FOR US. SHE SPENT TIME GETTING TO KNOW MY FAMILY AND OUR CIRCUMSTANCES TO BEST CAPTURE OUR BIG DAY. JANA'S WORK IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL AND TIMELESS. SHE IS KIND, LOVING AND BEYOND CREATIVE. SHE DOESN'T STOP SMILING! JANA IS HAPPY, PLEASANT, AND A PERFECT ADDITION TO ANY WEDDING DAY! SHE FIT RIGHT IN! PICTURES WERE VERY IMPORTANT TO ME AND JANA WORKED HARD TO COMPLETE MY VISION AND PROVIDE US WITH TOP QUALITY WORK. SHE KEPT THINGS FLOWING, CAPTURED THE IMAGES WE REALLY WANTED, AND TOOK THAT EXTRA STEP TO INSURE THAT EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT. I AM VERY THANKFUL TO HAVE MET JANA MARIE AND I TREASURE THE PHOTOS THAT SHE CAPTURED FROM OUR BELOVED SESSION AND OUR WEDDING DAY. EVERYONE LOVES LOOKING AT OUR IMAGES AND I LOOK FORWARD TO USING HER IN THE FUTURE WITH OTHER EXCITING LIFE EVENTS!
