“Jane came recommended to us from a friend that went to college with Jane. We first met Jane when we were in the process of interviewing a couple of photographers. From the second we sat down with her, she made us feel comfortable. Neither my husband or I had professional pictures taken since we were in elementary school. We are not picture people either, so we were nervous about having our engagement pictures and wedding pictures taken. She listened to our vision that we wanted for our wedding and engagement pictures and had so many ideas to contribute in that first meeting. When we left, we knew that we wanted to hire Jane.
As the date came close for us to get our engagement pictures taken, she set-up a Pinterest board to go over ideas for pictures that she thought we would want based on our first conversation. Everything she posted, was exactly what we wanted. The day of our engagement picture came, and she did everything that she could to make us feel comfortable and laugh to ensure that she got natural photos of us. As we explored Ballard, she would find these interesting backdrops that came out amazing when we got our pictures. She also knew that it was important for us to get pictures taken in our Seahawks jerseys, and even though the day was getting late, she was able to get some amazing pictures with downtown Seattle in the background.
Before our wedding day, Jane was in constant communication with us and neatly laid out the timeline so we could fit everything we wanted in on our wedding day. She did everything on that day to make sure our wedding pictures came out exactly like we wanted. Our day was running late, and she didn’t even hesitate when we asked her to stay for TWO extra hours.
I know that Jane will become our family photographer as our family grows. I would recommend Jane to anyone looking for a photographer!”

“I’ve worked with Jane as a colleague before, and so she was the first photographer I spoke with when we were planning our wedding. I’d always known her to be a very calm, down-to-earth and professional person, and that’s exactly what we got from her in this capacity as well. She was easy to work with and captured our day exactly as we wanted it done. All creative people have a way of working and strong opinions about their art, but Jane and her assistant were really flexible to ensure that we got what we wanted, not just what they thought would be best. It also helped that they had great ideas and were great at explaining them, though, because I’m terrible at posing for photos and needed all the direction I could get. I would advise you to book her as early as possible because there’s no way she won’t be busy every weekend next summer as well.”

“I met Jane in College and have always admired her beautiful photography. Using Jane as my wedding photographer was always in the back of my mind throughout these years, so once I got engaged, I knew I needed to connect with Jane again. I really like how easy she is to work with. I’m really bad at taking staged photos and so is my husband. We pinned some shots so she could get a feel for the style we were into for our photos, and she was able to translate them for us. She did such an amazing job capturing our wedding day that it literally brings tears to my eyes every time I look through them all. She made Brett and I feel super comfortable which helped us loosen up so we could get the photos we wanted. I love how crisp they turned out, while at the same time, capturing the surrounding scenery perfectly.”

“If you want a wedding photographer who can capture your love story in photographs, then JaneG. Photography is for you! My best friend hired Jane as her wedding photographer almost three years ago and I knew then that wanted Jane to be my wedding photographer. My (now) husband knew how much I loved her work and hired her to shoot his wedding proposal to me as a surprise! Jane was fantastic and took beautiful photos even in bad lighting of him popping the question and then took us on an impromptu photo shoot around Seattle Center.
We booked Jane as our wedding photographer and the package we purchased included an engagement photo shoot. She has a variety of packages available that are all competitively priced with other photographers in the area and most of them include an extra photographer. Jane is incredibly easy to work with and has fun laid-back personality that makes it easy to act natural. She has a knack for being able to capture the “real you”, only a better version! Her turn around time is excellent and she always posts “sneak peeks” of her photos on her Facebook and Instagram page, usually on the same day as your scheduled shoot.
A few weeks before our wedding, Jane met with us and fine tuned our wedding day timeline with us and made sure we had all of our “must-haves” taken into account. She is incredibly organized and pretty much helped us create our timeline! On the day of our wedding she was professional and made sure to keep on top of the timeline so we didn’t feel rushed or like we were running late. Both of our families were so impressed with how she managed everyone during the family pictures.
Overall, Jane is an outstanding photographer who understands light, design, people and how to capture moments that happen in seconds to make them last forever. She is not someone who just snaps pictures; she is an artist who takes pride in her craft and loves to share peoples stories through her work.
Thank you Jane for capturing our love story!”
“JANE is AMAZING! Yes our venue at Treehouse Point in Fall City, WA is beautiful all on its one, but with out Jane’s brilliant photography and amazing time management, we would not have the GORGEOUS photos to share with our family and friends. We are looking forward to our family session with her! I would without a doubt choose her our photographer again.”
“I hired Jane to take our Engagement and Wedding photos. We chose her based off of recommendations from her previous clients and couldn’t be happier about it! She was so professional yet warm, her personality really puts you at ease during a time when you’re a little nervous and stressed and allows for your personality and emotions to shine through on film (or digital card, whatever). Her assistant, Sang, was also amazing, very talented and funny. It was great having two photographers at both shoots, so different angles were covered and they were able to bounce ideas off of each other and capture some really amazing shots. Both our engagement and wedding photos turned out AMAZING. I don’t have enough picture frames or wall space to display all of the ones that I want to, it’s making for some tough choices! Jane really is wonderful, but personality and quality of work, I would highly recommend her!”
“We had Jane shoot our engagement photos and our day-of wedding shots. She is awesome. Did a great job of directing the group and getting photos that everyone loves. Cool thing about her is that she can give you creative, stylish shots, action shots, and classic must have wedding photos. Everything you need… You can’t have all indie, filtered wedding photos, so having someone like Jane is key. It is much better to get a mix of gorgeous composition types.”
“Jane did an amazing job on our engagement & wedding photos. She made my very camera shy fiancé feel right at home & comfortable. We had a great experience! She turned our session into a fun and easy experience. She has a great eye & we loved her attention to nature. You can tell she really takes pride in her work. Her laid back attitude puts you at ease, but she also isn’t afraid to keep rowdy bridal parties on task! Ha! I would highly recommend her to everyone!! We love Jane!”
“Jane was recommended to me by a friend who used her for their family portraits. We met her and instantly liked her. She is very laid back and easy to work with. We purchased a package that included engagement photos and had a blast with her and her second photographer with that session. Once we got those photos back we instantly knew we were going to love our wedding photos.
On our wedding day she was super organized with all of the family photos and kept our group moving. When we were running low on time we were able to taken some quick, impromptu photos before heading to the ceremony. If you want specific photos taken she is more than happy to take a list. During the reception I didn’t even notice her running around to take photos. Since we’ve gotten our photos back we’ve received nothing but compliments on how stunning they are. Just take a look at her blog and I guarantee you’ll be hooked. As a bonus, she’s a great photographer for the Seattle Sounders and the Seahawks!”
Unbelievable. We love them … Thank you so much once again. The pictures are stunning. Brian and I just can’t thank you enough. You are amazing and we absolutely love our photos. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect photographer.
-Liz and Brian
The pictures are wonderful. You captured the “fun” of the celebration which was what that evening was all about!…. There are so many great shots, I’m sure we will be able to create a beautiful photo book of memories!

We got the pictures yesterday, and they are AMAZING! I am so happy we have you to photograph our wedding.
-Heather and Ben.
We just wanted to write you to let you know that we got the pictures today and spent some time going through them. We LOVE them! They are AWESOME! You totally rocked it and we are so glad you’ll be photographing our wedding.
-Brandon and Sabrina
Jane did such a great job photographing our wedding! She met with us two weeks before at the wedding site to discuss what we wanted and schedule a plan for the day. When the day came, she handled our extremely large wedding party and family with ease and captured the best shots-both posed/formal and candid. The pictures turned out beautifully and we are still getting compliments on how great our wedding photos are! We really enjoyed her mix of a professional and fun attitude as she captured our big day, thanks Jane!!
My fiancé and I were looking for a wedding photographer when a friend of ours recommended Jane. After meeting with her in the initial consultation, it was evident that she not only had the skill set to take amazing photos, but also that she was the kind of person we wanted to have around us on our wedding day. Jane took our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos, and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the results. She was patient and creative while taking photos, making it a fun experience for my fiancé and me. We are so happy with the number of quality photos we have from our special day. She was able to capture all of our special moments beautifully. We would highly recommend Jane to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
-Sarah & Andy
Jane, you are quite the power house in that little body! You were assertive when you needed to be, and so sweet. Your energy draws people in, like a warm cinnamon roll. You were able to help calm and comfort me when needed. I keep telling everyone that you were one of the best people to have around that day!
