I'll walk with you every step of the way

...Just maybe not down the aisle

Ready to ditch those Pinterest boards from 2014 and the trends holding you down? Ready to throw caution to the wind and decide to do what’s authentic to you and your love story. Creating a wedding day that truly represents you is all that matters — and capturing each moment along the way with honesty and joy? That's where I come in.

let's get started

My lifelong love of photography started at summer camp in 1999 (cheers to my 90s kids!), with just a fanny pack and a disposable camera. Even then I knew that photography was something special — and that every shot mattered. Sure, what I captured then was mostly blurry smiles and close up shots of friendship bracelets. But to me it was everything. And honestly? It still is.

My subjects may have changed and my camera skills have improved but something that hasn’t changed is my passion for capturing moments that matter — both big and small — and still believing that every shot counts. With nearly 10 years of experience in the wedding industry, I'm ready and beyond excited to capture your memories so that you can be taken back to your most cherished moments for years to come.

I'm a Minneapolis-based wedding photographer, spreading joy to couples and families by documenting their most beautiful and special moments with photos that feel.

nice to meet you

hey! I'm janie

I am humbled by this role, and honestly...

I do it all for you.

We welcomed our first child this year and couldn't be more in love!

01

I married my grade school best friend turned high school sweetheart. 

God is so good and shows me His grace and mercy on a daily basis.

02

My Catholic faith is very important to me.

We went to Switzerland for our honeymoon and Iceland is next on our bucket list. 

03

I'd pick the mountains over the beach any day.

editing them while watching Parks and Rec for the 1,000th time (Leslie Knope is my role model).

If I'm not taking photos, I'm probably...

I love Target, coffee dates, thrift stores and being nice to people.

And, like most Minnesotans...

Fun facts

Elizabeth & JohnnY

She was always responsive and helped us to create a schedule for the day of events. She took the most amazing photos of our wedding, they were better than we could have ever imagined! Moments only last so long, but the photos last a lifetime. The quality of her photos were amazing! I would recommend Janie to anyone who asked!

Janie was amazing throughout the entire planning process!

Morgan & Ryan

We LOVE our photos. We couldn't be happier with the quality of our photos and we have received so many compliments. Janie is friendly and goes above and beyond to add personal touches. She helped us create a schedule for our wedding day (we would have been lost otherwise!) and made taking photos fun. It felt very natural and easy to take pictures with her. I am so grateful Janie was available and couldn't imagine working with anyone else!

We can't say enough good things!

Kellie & Jeff

The quality of the pictures are top-notch and she was very easy and enjoyable to work with. Multiple people in our wedding party said 'your photographer was so great and so fun!' We are very happy with our decision to use her and the results!

Janie was awesome to work with!

My family has worked with her on several occasions and she continues to do phenomenal work. Her attention to detail, creativity and patience make her a wonderful person to work with. Her photos are beautiful. Janie is the best of the best!
