About Janimal Photography

A little bit about me – Janelle

Hey there, I’m Janelle! I’m here to tell you more about myself and about Janimal Photography. Professional photographer, hip-hop dancer, and all around animal lover. I love lazy Sundays and summer days on the lake. Most days you will find me in yoga pants, listening to my favorite podcasts while cuddling with my two puppies, Bella & Brody. Currently obsessed with bubble baths & watching The Office. I cherish my family and try to spend as much time with them as possible, they are what people would say my “bread & butter”. Although, I have a fun and goofy side I feel I am very passionate & dedicated to the work I do. After graduating UWSP with a Bachelors in Web & Digital Media Development, I began to really develop my passion for photography. I love natural light photography and most importantly I love photographing people. My style behind the camera is ever-changing and improving as a sole reflection of you. We will get to know each other and from there, I tailor my sessions to capture your essence and your joy. Can’t wait to work with you.

A little bit more about Janimal Photography

Janimal Photography specializes in lifestyle and wedding photography based Wausau, Wisconsin. I practice natural light photography techniques to create high quality and authentic images. Some popular sessions include wedding photography, engagement photography, lifestyle photography, and senior portraits.  Although, I am based in Wisconsin, I love to travel. Traveling gives me awesome new perspectives and I love visiting  new places and meeting people along the way. Therefore, that means I am 100% available for destination wedding photography. My photography style is ever-changing and improving as a direct reflection of you. Although, I keep consistent with my photography style, I want to capture the essence of you and make sure that comes across with clean, real photos. 






We had so much fun working with Janimal Photography! Not only did Janelle travel for our wedding, but she also made us feel so at ease during the wedding planning process. She helped us think about all of the important moments we may want to capture and more. And on our special day, her and her secondary, Shelby, truly made photos fun and enjoyable up until the very end. She pointed out so many beautiful photo opportunities that I didn’t even realize were right in front of us at the spots we chose to photograph at. We knew we wanted to use Janimal after seeing several friends wedding photos that turned out absolutely beautiful, and Janimal captured so many. The style, lighting, and creativity was what really stuck out it is. Both of the photographers had such a great eye, were extremely creative, and made us laugh and have fun while keeping everything in order! We will definitely be using Janimal again in the future for other shoots that we want to capture!!!


Janelle was the MOST amazing photographer. From our engagement photos to our wedding day – Janelle was so easy to work with and made us feel comfortable and beautiful through the whole process! She is energetic, fun, and talented! I cannot say enough good things about her and I’ve already recommended her to a few of my friends who are getting married in the next year!! If you book Janimal Photography, you won’t be disappointed and will truly be dazzled by her photos for years to come!


Janelle is an absolute joy to work with! Her creativity is unmatched, her technique is honed, & her positive energy allows for a wonderful sense of comfort and freedom within the shoot. She is terrific at guiding clients through her vision and also welcomes new impulses that could lead to unique images. I had a blast during the shoot and was thrilled to receive the link to the gallery. Ordering online was quick and easy and I could not wait to share the photos! I definitely recommend Janimal Photography.
