About janelle

Although my main niche wedding photography, my expertise branches much further than just weddings. I practice natural light and film-inspired photography techniques to create high quality and authentic, natural images.Some of my favorite sessions are working with couples, families and their pets! I love serving couples who are invested in the whole process and open to artistic vision when capturing all those unplanned moments that become memories. My photography passion has transformed into creating high quality, timeless and authentic images with a light and airy touch. All smaller bookings (family, couples, individuals, etc.) are through Janimal Photography and all weddings bookings are through our collective professional photography team - Hinterland.

my Passion for photography

A little about me. It's been over 10 years in the works creating my mark in the photography world, but I have to say I am much more than just a photographer. I find my happiest moments are around my family. We are all a bunch of goofballs and love laughing together. I also have been dancing all my life and still to this day I continue that passion by teaching dance at my Mom's local dance studio.

On the days I am not taking photos you will find me spending time with family, snowboarding with friends, playing video games (COD, Fortnite, Zelda, and Kingdom Hearts are some of my favorites right now), listening to true crime podcasts (MFM, Crime Junkie), cuddling with my Cat, Ziggy.

I am janelle, your photographer

hey friends!


my family means everything to me

Some of my happiest moments are spent with my family. We love laughing and playing games. I am the middle child split between my younger brother and older sister. Yes, it is true...I do have many of the cliche middle sibling traits - 1% normal, 99% goofball.


yeah, I dance and not just in my room.

I grew up dancing ever since I was 2 years old. My favorite styles are hip-hop and contemporary. Dance is one of my main passions and now that I'm older, I continue to share that passion by teaching others at my mom's local dance studio, DDH. 


animal lover at heart

This is Ziggy, she is a weirdo and also one of the sweetest little tortoiseshell kitties out there.  I have always been a dog lover first, so Ziggy really threw me for a loop. If you follow me on social you will definitely see this little "bean sack" running around.


my favorite winter activity is snowboarding

In highschool I started snowboarding and haven't stopped since. If you are every up at Granite Peak you might see me carving away. I don't always look forward to cold Wisconsin winters, but I always look forward to snowboarding! 


family trips are the best!

Every year my family plans a trip instead of receiving gifts for Christmas. Over the years, these have been some of my most cherished memories. A couple places we have traveled to are: Mexico, Turks and Caicos, Hawaii(for my brother's proposal) and St. Thomas (where he is getting married). I will take traveling with my family over gifts anyday, worth it!
