About Janimal Photography



Hello, my name is Janelle and I’m the girl behind the camera. I’m a professional photographer currently residing in Central Wisconsin.  On the days I am not taking photos, you will find me teaching dance at my mom’s dance studio, watching The Office on repeat, listening to my favorite true-crime podcasts, cuddling with my two puppies (Bella & Brody) and spending copious amounts of time with my family.  It’s safe to say I have a goofy-quirky side, because life is too short to be so serious. 

The Business, Janimal Photography

Janimal Photography is a Midwest Wedding Photography Service based in Wisconsin. 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, bright images.  I love to travel and am open to destinations and elopements. I have extended my work from my hometown of Wausau, Wisconsin to places like Los Angeles (CA), Denver (CO), Minneapolis (MN), all the way to Dominican Republic. My photography style is ever-changing and refining as a direct reflection of you.  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.

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.
