Behind the Lens


The reason and passion behind my art is to do so much more then "snap some photos".

My greatest honour is documenting how life is. The beauty, messy, raw and passionate life we live on this world. I am a true believer that every stage - the pre wedding giggles to the sticky fingerprints on the mirrors in your home, deserves to be captured. 

So here I am, living this beautiful life, documenting your story, chapter by chapter



"I have used Janessa for several different types of photography needs and each time she never fails to deliver the most amazing photos. She is attentive to the individuals she is shooting as well as body language, and will provide helpful tips to make one more comfortable behind the camera. She is so passionate about her work and it becomes incredibly evident in her sessions. I would HIGHLY recommend using Janessa for all your photography needs; wedding, engagement, family, product, branding etc. She can do it all! Also, her videography skills are something else and a rare talent for the Fraser Valley area. I cannot wait to continue working with Janessa for several projects to come. She is incredibly talented and I am positive she will turn into your photography bestie by the end of the entire process!"




Janessa just sent us our completed album from our engagement photo shoot. The pictures are amazing and it was all because of her! My partner and I are not very comfortable in front of cameras but her fun, light hearted expertise made it really fun. We can't wait for her to photograph our wedding! 




Janessa was an asset to our entire wedding experience! She was probably my fave investment that went toward our wedding. She coordinated an amazing engagement shoot in the mountains, had endless of ideas + made us feel comfortable (which was so key for my husband who doesn’t loveee photos). She honestly became a friend throughout the entire process. A bonus was that I received my wedding photos way before what I was expecting - all edited to perfection! The photos she took weren’t too staged, the editing is not overdone (super organic looking!) and the gallery that she delivers them in are easy to navigate and share with others. I suggest Janessa to anyone who needs a photographer to capture the most memorable times of your life! I can’t wait to use janessa again in future shoots, including maternity, newborn + family photos! Thank you Janessa - I wouldn’t want anyone else.




Janessa did our engagement shoot and our wedding recently and OH MY GOSH! They turned out so beautiful. She has the art of capturing such genuine photographs. We would 100% recommend Janessa to capture your special day and we can’t wait until the next time where she can capture us through her lens. Janessa makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera, even my husband who hates photos being taken felt comfortable with Janessa as she did her thing!!




We had our newborn photos done by Janessa and had a lovely experience. It was very easy to schedule the shoot even though the timing of birth was unpredictable! She has a great online gallery/booking platform that makes everything easy. During the shoot she helped guide us through all of the poses and we felt really comfortable. I was only a week postpartum and very vulnerable but she made the experience seamless and enjoyable! We LOVE our photos that we will keep close to our hearts forever.




Janessa is absolutely amazing! She is the sweetest photographer and she knew exactly how to make us comfortable when getting the perfect poses. Her editing, photos, details , everything was amazing! So so happy with our engagement photos and wedding photos and will definitely use her for more shoots in the future! We received sneak peaks from each shoot within a few days and our entire album within a few months, my husband and I were extremely impressed! Highly recommend janessa for all your photographer needs ! Thank you for all the memories we will cherish forever
