After chasing love & life around the world for over a decade I understand every story is uniquely special & deserves to be told with authenticity & timelessness. We strive to create genuine photographs that will invoke a memory of a certain time in your life. I believe beautiful photography should capture the divine connection & emotions of your life's story. We are photographers for all people of all walks of life.
Jana Marie was absolutely INCREDIBLE! Not only was she a fantastic photographer, she also is one of the sweetest and kindest people I’ve ever met. She has an incredibly joyous and bubbly spirit that makes you feel at ease right from the get-go. I feel like the pictures turned out so great because of how comfortable she made me and my husband feel during the entire shoot. Jana Marie’s work is by far the best we have seen from professional photographer’s as well. We were SO pleased with how our photos turned out. They truly look like all of them belong in a wedding magazine. The quality is just top notch. We love that we have such beautiful pictures to look back on from the best day of our lives. 10/10. I can not recommend her enough. Thank you for being part of our special day.

Hiring Jana was one of the best decisions we made for our big day! Jana is the sweetest, most caring and genuine person and it shows throughout the entire process from planning to post wedding. She encouraged me to get shots that I thought were over the top or took much hassle on my wedding day, including bringing my cat to the photography site to include her in our wedding photos. She also carried my husbands sweaty shoes all over to multiple stops that we made to take photos and she never batted an eye. Like I said she is AMAZING! The turn around for our full album was so quick! We received about 240 sneak peak photos the day after our wedding and we received our full album during the Honeymoon, less than a week later! I would highly recommend Jana. She will capture the most amazing photos and make you feel beautiful every step of the way!

Jana Marie was PHENOM! My now husband and I are both designers so the photographs of our wedding were extremely important to us, we had very specific ideas of how we wanted them to turn out...talk about pressure. However, Jana met all of our expectations & more. She was able to capture every single perfect minute of our day in an artistic yet breathtakingly beautiful way. When the photos were finished I was absolutely blown away. I couldn't believe how each of her images captured the exuding amount of joy and love felt by everyone on that day. They were fantastic. Not only are Jana & Philip truly gifted photographers, but they are also the most amazing people. We felt so blessed to get to share our special day with them. From the moment we met them we hit it off and had such a blast. I would recommend JMP to anyone. She is absolutely amazing & worth every penny.

"i was absolutely blown away"
Jana Marie is an incredibly talented photographer! She took my daughter's engagement and wedding photos and they are exquisite! The wedding was in the evening and although the lighting was quite dim, one would never know from her photos. Somehow Jana can capture the best moments irrespective of the conditions and her photos look as if she has perfect lighting at all times. She is also easy to work with and takes the pressure out of what can be a stressful situation. Jana Marie Photography is unparalleled. Thank you Jana!

"Jana Marie is Unparalleled"
We knew she was perfect for what we were looking for. Jana spent a week with our family in Mexico during our destination wedding in August. She became family. During the entire process she was very flexible & overall she is a very talented artist. We were so happy with the quality of the pictures and the uniqueness of Jana's work. She is a wonderful person and makes you feel at ease. Joe & I cannot express how grateful we are for all that she have done for us. Most of all, we appreciate her making herself available to help us fulfill our dreams & capture one of the most important days of our lives.

"WE CANNOT THANK HER ENOUGH FOR ALL SHE'S DONE"
Jana Marie was well worth the purchase!!!!! I am a designer and love photography. I was concerned I wouldn't find someone to give me what I was looking for. However, Miss Jana was amazing! She took control & by far filled my expectations. Hopefully we have more future events to be captured in life & will hire her again and again!!! Amazing job!

"BY FAR FILLED MY EXPECTATIONS"
Oh Jana! Hands own the best investment we could have made! Photography was absolutely my top priority while planning. When my fiance, mother and I sat down with Jana, her professionalism, joyful attitude, style & attention to detail were just a few of the things that made us walk away from that first consult knowing she was absolutely going to be our photographer. Her work speaks for itself. She made us feel comfortable & created a safe space full of laughs & special moments. Her positivity was contagious & we had a blast. When we got our photos back, I could not stop smiling! They caught so many touching moments & beautiful images & added to our day by being so fun, supportive and caring.
Our parents & bridal party still talk about her to this day & everyone adores our photos. I also have to say that her reputation is outstanding in the wedding industry & beyond. THIS. IS. YOUR. GIRL. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS, JANA MARIE!

"HANDS DOWN THE BEST INVESTMENT WE COULD HAVE MADE!"
I cannot express enough how amazing Jana is! I’ve been amazed at her talent throughout the years and admired her wedding photography, so it was an easy choice when it came time for us to hire a wedding photographer. The one thing I really wanted in a photographer was to feel comfortable and at ease throughout the process. Jana makes you feel so energized and beautiful in front of the camera! She’s funny and has really creative ideas for getting you to laugh and be natural. She was also so good with photographing our two (very uncooperative) dogs! The dogs did not want to look at the camera and Jana managed to capture the most perfect photos of the four of us. We’d highly recommend her again and again!

"I CANNOT EXPRESS ENOUGH HOW AMAZING JANA IS!"
Jana has been our photographer for infant photo sessions and family lifestyle sessions over the course of 4 years. She is incredibly talented and flexible, with an ability to transform an ordinary environment into extraordinary photographic results. She captures the best available light sources, incorporates
architectural elements to frame shots, and most importantly - manages to make us all look amazing in each shot! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services-you will not be disappointed.

"SHE HAS AN ABILITY TO TRANSFORM AN ORDINARY ENVIRONMENT INTO EXTRAORDINARY PHOTOGRAPHIC RESULTS"
Jana Marie was my photography is well worth it. The photos were behyond what I could have hoped for & she seemed to be able to catch every detail & emotion. Her photography tells a story about her subjects & she told ours how we saw the day unfold. From start to finish she was present for every moment. The best part, you wouldn't have even known they were there. Her & her rockstar second shooter are so gracious & poised that they blend in with the guests. They make everyone feel comfortable & had the entire family laughing. I would definitely recommend splurging for the Banana Who? Booth (their photo booth company) too. It was the biggest hit at the wedding by far. Everyone gets to take a picture home with them. I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes looking through the photos. Overall if you want a photographer who will make you laugh, take beyond beautiful photos & be there when you need it, & behind the scenes when you don't, you need to hire Jana Marie Photography. You will not be disappointed.

"YOU NEED TO HIRE JANA MARIE"
Bryan & I have loved working with Jana! She did our engagement pictures & we received them a few days later & couldn't be more thrilled with them. She captures emotions perfectly & she's creative & unique in her style. Not to mention, she knew how to talk to us through the engagement session so we got comfortable & had fun with it to get the best photos possible. We highly recommend Jana!!

"COULDN'T BE MORE THRILLED"
My husband & I hired Jana to photography our destination wedding in beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The decision to fly in our own photographer was a difficult one but we knew Jana's work & didn't want to sacrifice one moment of our wedding experience. To say that we were pleased would be an immense understatement. Of course we'll always have the memories but Jana provided us with a way to relive our entire experience in such a wonderful way with all of our stunning pictures!
SAM & RICH | PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO
"TO SAY WE WERE PLEASED WITH OUR DECISION WOULD BE AN IMMENSE UNDERSTATEMENT."
When my wedding planner sent over Jana's information I knew she was perfect for us. She spent time getting to know my family & our circumstances to best capture our big day. Jana's work is absolutely beautiful & timeless. She is kind, loving, & beyond creative. She doesn't stop smiling! Jana is happy, pleasant & a perfect addition to any wedding day!
She fit right in! Pictures were very important to me & Jana worked hard to complete my vision & provide us with top quality work. She kept things flowing, captured the images we really wanted & took that extra step to insure that everything was perfect. I am very thankful to have met Jana Marie & I treasure these photos that she captured from our beloved session & our wedding day. Everyone loves looking at our images & I look forward to using her in the future with other exciting life events!

"SHE IS KIND, LOVING AND BEYOND CREATIVE."
Jana did a fabulous job capturing our special day! She was a pro about being at the right place at the right time (without us even realizing she was there) and captured so many beautiful ‘in the moment’ moments that my husband and I didn’t even realize were happening. Having a great photographer was very important to me. So much special detail goes into your wedding day to personalize it and make it completely about you and your other half as well as your family and friends. While these details are beautiful, personal and or delicious, most details and events are only remembered or recognized on that day. By investing in a great photographer, we can now relive the special moments, memories and details with beautiful photos we will cherish forever.
Jessica & Jeff | Kansas City, Missouri
"we can relive the special moments."
Jana was amazing. Her personality is infectious and she has so much fun doing what she loves. Of course this shows in her work! I met Jana and knew she had to be my photographer when I first saw her pictures. She had a book of her wedding which was in Grand Lake, Colorado (The same place I was getting married!) It was fate! Jana traveled with us to Colorado and photographed my rehearsal and wedding. We also used here photo booth company Banana Who? Booth and had the Airstream trailer photo booth. Guests loved this! Jana's passion for adventure lead us to the best pictures. She convinced us to drive to the top of Trailridge pass (the highest driveable highway in the country) for the most breath taking shots. Thanks Jana for making life long memories with us!

"the most breath taking shots."
Jana is a blast to work with! She made my 2 year old son feel comfortable enough to be himself even with a camera on him, which is what we really wanted to capture. Jana did a Lifestyle Photo Shoot for our little family of three and we were amazed at the truth and beauty she was able to capture in our everyday life. We will undoubtedly book with her again!

She is incredibly talented & kind, easy to work with & captured our special day so well. We cannot thank her enough for all she has done for us! We absolutely love our photos & can't wait to share them with our family & friends!

Oh my goodness Jana I don't know what to say! The photos are incredible. Making Megan look stunning can't be all that difficult but me on the other hand, that is no small feat! We can't believe how gorgeous the images turned out! You really are wildly talented. It was a joy working with you. We can't wait to do it again!
