ABOUT

Doing my best to live a life of radical generosity.

i'm jana marie

Hi there.

A little bit about me

Meet Jana Marie

My real journey in photography began when I attended a missions trip in Mexico for the first time. It was the moments I showed those little faces their first portraits, when mama's tears rolled down her face when she walked into her new home with her first framed picture of her family on the wall.. It was then I realized why grandpa always had a camera with him. I finally understood the importance of photography. I'm lucky creativity & photography is one of my gifts & I understand I have been blessed so that I can be a blessing to others.  It is my joy to be a storyteller & preserve the authentic stories of people around the globe. A professional preserver of life. As a wedding photographer I get to do the same thing. I'm capturing & saving memories on one of the most important days of my couples lives.  I hope as you scroll throughout our site, you enjoy getting to know who we are behind the camera. Stay awhile!

My grandpa always had 3 cameras around his neck for every life event: A polaroid, a video camera, and a digital camera. we always laughed at it, but now I look back and understand he had taught me something so much bigger...

What We Do

I strive to create genuine photographs that will invoke a memory of a certain time in your life. I believe beautiful photography should capture the authentic connection & emotion of the life my couples have built together. we strongly believe in collecting moments and not things.

The professional stuff

business  Facts

Starting my photography business in 2009 I had no idea it would lead to my full time career. Having been rated by couples as one of the top 5% wedding professionals in the US & Canada we take our job very seriously (& also have a lot of fun along the way)!

What We Hope

In the midst of the hustel of being a business owner, We always believe in putting people first & photography second. We hope to provide a radical experience & relationship with all we are lucky to meet. We can't wait to share our love of collecting moments with you.
