    Janelle is the best wedding photographer out there. She is caring and listens and made sure to capture our day perfectly. She took my vision and captured it perfectly. I鈥檓 so thankful we had her.

    The Best Skilled and Creative Photos from the Best Person!

    Janelle is amazing! From the first phone call she made us feel like we were her only client and would do anything to make our day perfect. She is so enthusiastic and so kind and meshed with who we are so well. I work in video so I wanted to find someone who would live up to my standards and I was beyond impressed by her skill and creativity. She was very patient and all for pushing boundaries for different shots I wanted. After our engagement shoot she said she felt me and my now husband shared one soul. That feeling was absolutely captures in the photos she took of us. She took the time to understand who we are so well that by the time our wedding came we felt she was like family. Getting married during COVID-19 our plans were flipped upside down and constantly changing, and Janelle was so understanding and accommodating. She was so fun to have around on our wedding day and even helped hide me from my guests as we were walking back from the first look. I couldn鈥檛 have imagined our day without her!

    Amazing Photographer-Better Person

    Janelle is the absolute best! When we first met her, she made us feel like we have been friends forever. Her compassion and dedication to her craft is unmatched. My wife and I are so happy we chose Janelle to be our photographer. She made our guests feel welcomed and comfortable throughout the entire event. We got our finished photos within days after our wedding and they're amazing! If you're looking for a photographer for your wedding, special event, etc, Janelle should be number one on your list! She made our day so fun and special. We cant thank her enough!

    Fantastic!

    Janelle is fantastic to work with. My wife and I hired Janelle to photograph our small civil ceremony at Hamilton College, a location that she is extremely familiar with. She was the perfect combination of laid back and fun while also giving clear and direct instructions. Janelle helped reduce the stress of the day and we are very happy with the photos she took for us. Her rate is very reasonable and was worth every penny. I would highly recommend working with her!

    Engagement Photos

    My fianc茅 and I booked Janelle for our engagement session, and we are so glad we did! She got back to us in a very timely manner and was able to get us in sooner than we expected! The day of our shoot, Janelle made it one to remember. We had so much fun! We got our photos back in a week, which was amazing! We are still astonished by the pictures and we cannot say enough good things about her. Highly recommend!

    Truly One Of A Kind!

    Janelle is MORE than just a photographer, she is an ally and a calming force, complete sunshine when you are stressed to the max! She helped with any questions during my wedding planning days, even those not related to photography! She was incredible at capturing moments that I missed at the wedding and couldn鈥檛 have asked for a better photographer- she is a real gem in this community for not only her talents but her cheerful personality! 馃挏馃挏馃挏

    Our experience with Janelle was so amazing. I contacted her about four months before I proposed to see if she would be able to do a surprise engagement shoot and capture my now-fiancee's reaction to the proposal. Janelle loved the idea, and was so excited to set everything up. She captured the moment it happened, and then we had an impromptu engagement photo shoot right there!

    Janelle's services are absolutely worth every penny, and we couldn't have been more ecstatic to have her as our photographer!

    Janelle Rodriguez Photography's reply:

    Andy, thank you so much for this review!!! It was amazing being a part of this amazing moment. Congratulations to you and Courtney!

    Janelle is the best!

    Janelle has been nothing but AMAZING! She was the photographer for my best friends wedding, and I knew then that if I were to ever get married, I was hiring Janelle! She is so sweet and welcoming. Our engagement shoot was perfect, she made us feel so comfortable and we had so much fun! She was incredible at our wedding, and anything I needed she had! Even Some mints before I walked down the aisle to kiss my husband! All of our pictures have turned out amazing and everyone continues to compliment me on our great all my pictures are. She pays very close attention to detail and goes out of her way to make you feel special! I could not recommend her more! Now I need more life events so I can hire her again!!!!

    Janelle is perfection!

    I can鈥檛 put into words how amazing Janelle and team were the day of my wedding. I had not even met Janelle until the morning of my wedding but knew from the first time we talked on the phone she would be perfect. She made me feel so comfortable and confident all day. She was patient with all of our friends and family, which included many small children. One of her many strengths is to be able to explain exactly what she is looking for, which was so helpful for us seeing we have never had a photographer follow me around all day! I could not recommend Janelle more. She is beyond perfect!

    The most amazing experience working with Janelle!

    We can't recommend Janelle enough! She was so great to work with throughout the whole process which made our engagement and wedding so much less stressful while planning. She recommended a beautiful mansion for our engagement photos and even though it was raining, we had an absolute blast taking our photos that turned out amazing. Janelle was always responsive when I asked for help finding hair/makeup and a videographer which was so helpful. To top it off- our wedding photos turned out BEAUTIFUL and the turnaround was so quick. She was so much fun to work with and captured more than we could have imagined!

    Best Photographer Ever!

    Janelle did an amazing job on our wedding and engagement photos!! She has been one of our favorite vendors. She made my new husband and I comfortable throughout the entire process!! She answered all of our questions and was super kind and friendly. Throughout the planning process, I reached out to her a few times and she was always very helpful with great suggestions. She traveled to do our engagement pictures where we wanted them. She even took pictures in the rain with a smile and with enthusiasm! We received a beautiful flash drive with all the pictures for our use. We were allowed to post them and order prints. For our wedding photos, she worked with my crazy list of pictures and ensured we had each picture, along with her assistant Elisha. She kept the wedding day running smoothly and according to our timeline, which was nothing short of amazing. She posted a teaser photo the next day and had a beautiful slideshow and blog post for us within a week!! Her work is truly incredible and beautiful. I love when she took photos of us and said, "Yes!" It made us feel so relaxed and thus helped the photos come out even better! She really knew what she was doing in terms of lighting and setting up a great shot. Guests of the wedding and our bridal party were all commenting on what a wonderful photographer she is. We couldn't be any more happy with her work. She is a true artist.

    Janelle Rodriguez- wedding photography

    I booked Janelle for my wedding and I am SO GLAD I chose her. I initially was looking at another photographer who wasnt available for my date, but she recommended me to Janelle. I was always a pretty firm believer in "things happen for a reason" and this was a perfect example of that. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Janelle. Talking just about pictures, if you are looking for someone who captures those precious little moments you werent prepared for, that's her. She has an eye for a background too, If she tells you to go stand in some tall grass, DO IT and trust her, she knows what shes doing. She also gets photos back to you quickly and the presentation is adorable when you get them too (I wont ruin the surprise). I would 110% recommend Janelle!

    Janelle Rodriguez Photography's reply:

    Cady, thank you!!! I loved working with you and Angelo. Your day was so fun and I can't thank you guys enough for everything!!
