My wife and I think that Janine is simply great to work with. During events such as a DIY wedding, nearly anything could go wrong. However, after meeting Janine (and subsequently seeing her in action), we quickly realized that we were in good hands. From our initial meeting in our house, Janine intuitively knew what we were looking for in our photographs and what we were trying to capture in the day. As soon as the big day kicked off, we could see that Janine was a professional that has experience with handling children, big families, and distracted wedding parties all at the same time. She did an excellent job at keeping things moving and sticking to the schedule that we desired. She was even flexible enough to make an unplanned stop (x2) on the way to the reception. Not only that, she made the most of the stops and immediately starting working with us to get some wonderful set-ups.

Perhaps most importantly, the product of Janine's professionalism and work (and that of her assistant!) are some absolutely stunning photographs that my wife and I will cherish forever. She absolutely captured everything that we wanted from the day, and even evoked aspects of the wedding that we did not even realized were there. Our friends and family have been raving about the teaser photos that Janine has provided and we can't wait to see what else she has in store for us. From planning to execution, Janine is a talented professional that we would be lucky to work with again.

We booked Janine for our wedding later in the year, and she is absolutely wonderful!! She is so warm, caring, and genuinely wants to make our day as special as possible. I love how she got excited about our details, big or small, and wanted to know all about my fiance and I. It was really important for me to be able to connect with my photographer, and I absolutely adore her. I'm so excited for the wedding and to see the pictures afterwards because I know she is going to do an amazing job!

Janine was fantastic from the moment we spoke to the day she shot at our wedding. She is professional, calming, funny, sweet and genuine. She was not just our photographer, but was apart of our day and made us feel at ease throughout the whole process. We could go on and on about how wonderful she is, but her photos tell you all you need to know. Make Janine your only chour and you will have the best day and photos. Thank you So much Janine!!

Janine was the first vendor we hired, and she was also the only vendor we hired without considering others. My husband and I were very meticulous wedding planners. We met with tons of djs, florists, etc and had excel spreadsheets that analyzed every impacting factor. However, after meeting with Janine, we knew she was the best and could not be topped, so we booked her immediately. The breathtaking work on her website was enough of a reason to hire her without any reservations, and her incredible personality was the icing on the cake. Janine was incredibly responsive to our emails and phone calls throughout the entire planning process.  She really put us at ease and made us feel so confident with our decision to use Janine Collette Photography.  Other reviewers have mentioned that Janine reminds them of an old friend, and that observation is on point. Janine made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day and went above and beyond. She even assisted with all of my wardrobe malfunctions (e.g. zipping my dress when no one else could get it to work and helping with my stubborn jewelery). Janine calmly and efficiently captured all of our formal photos, which was not an easy task considering our 22 person bridal party. During the ceremony and reception, she captured incredible shots without being intrusive. We didn't even notice her!   So many guests commented on how amazing she was and how awesome her pictures were. She is truly a talented artist in every sense of the word. Janine knew what shots to take and where to position us based on the lighting, and she knew how to interact with us our bridal party, and family.

I can't say enough about how much we loved Janine and her assistant Nick! From day one, I knew Janine was going to be awesome to work with. She takes the time to understand the details of your day, your vision, etc. She is attentive and a pleasure to work with. Everything went so smoothly the day of our wedding with our pictures. Our pictures are beautiful! We have already received so many compliments. I highly recommend Janine as a photographer. I hope to work with her again in the future!

If you look through her website or Wordpress, it's obvious that Janine is a master of her craft. What you can also see is that there is little need for editing - her use of lighting is unique and exceptional. There are so many photographers to choose from when doing your wedding and it's so very hard to pick when you see their "best photos" laid out in front of you. My recommendation? Ask for access to another client's portfolio to see what a real wedding looked like, not their greatest hits. With Janine, any of her recent work highlights her ability to make every single bride of every race and body type look absolutely stunning. Worried about back fat or that weird thing on your arm? Tell her. Love your eyes or the left side of your face because your nose looks amazing? She'll be sure to get your good side. Above all, Janine wants to give you quality that you and your partner will love.

Weddings go by fast - every bride says that and yeah, it's true. Janine made it so easy to enjoy the prep time with my family and bridesmaids without being intrusive or taking time away from those moments. She always requested permission to take any trinkets to use for photographs, was hysterical when we needed everyone to smile, and made me feel absolutely beautiful when doing my private "bride-looking-out-the-window" shots. I felt like I was able to take in my entire day and be in the moment. Yes, it went fast, but I was able to really soak it in without feeling like I was being called away for photos or asking to fake smile with Aunt Bernice. There were no corny jokes, annoying flashes or corralling family members. Janine was so organized and coordinated before hand that it made things so smooth and relaxing. Basically, she made it so I could eat food from cocktail hour AND my dinner reception - how many brides can say that?!

It takes a special person to be able to be as kind, patient and goofy while providing amazing quality. This is Janine. Give her a call :)

If you are looking for a photographer with an amazing eye, artistic talent, who genuinely cares about her clients, and can capture all of the intimate moments of your day, look no further. Janine Collette Photography will fill all those needs. We were blessed to have been able to work with Janine for our wedding. She wasn't just a photographer but a friend. Janine has ability and an "eye" for light that no other photographer can match. We are so lucky we found her and truly cherish everything she has done for us in helping to commemorate our big day.

Janine knows how to warm up her couples when in front of the camera and made us feel comfortable. Natural candids are definitely a strength but Janine is also a pro at taking detail oriented shots and organizing large groups efficiently while still keeping the energy high. It is clear Janine takes such pride in what she does. Because Janine had not shot at our venue prior to our wedding, she took the time to do a walk through with us and get a feel for the place.

On our wedding, she went around and took all the pictures she needed. She did not need direction as everything came naturally for her. While we were at the house getting ready, it felt like there was a friend there, and this made us all feel so comfortable. This talent enables her to capture natural moments. She never missed an opportunity for a great shot.

Janine wasn't afraid to ask questions and try new things. She was beyond excited when she saw we could go out on a boat at our venue. She even took it a step further and asked if we could get on the island in the lake. This was amazing insight and was such a fun adventure for us on our wedding day.

Janine also has the ability to work with great second shooters. Our boys loved Nick as he was able to fit in and just be one of the guys. The two of them together were a great team. You would be lucky to have Janine as your photographer at your wedding!

Janine was FABULOUS! She was very flexible about being in contact with me (I lived out of state) and meeting with me a few days before to really nail down the specifics of some photos. Her work is gorgeous and she was absolutely non-intrusive. We barely noticed her during the reception, yet she managed to capture so many wonderful moments.

Words can’t describe how wonderful Janine’s work is. She was the first photographer we met with. We went to meet her and instantly we felt she was the right choice. In talking to her and getting to know her she was so personable. It felt like we were out with one of our friends that’s how easy it was to talk to her. She understood our vision and all our requests from day one. We sent numerous emails back and forth until the big day. Throughout the whole wedding she took such amazing shots without being intrusive. Looking at all the wedding photos was as if we were reliving the day all over again. One of our friends booked Janine after seeing the photos we posted on facebook. We can’t give Janine enough praise for how wonderful and talented she is and it was truly a pleasure to work with her.

There are not enough nice things that I can say about Janine. From our very first meeting till the day of, she was easy to work with, flexible and quick to respond if I ever had any questions. The big thing I didn't want on our wedding day was to have a photographer who would be in our face or would have us posed in silly and fake positions. I wanted a photographer that would capture the day authentically. Janine did just that! I hardly saw her and yet she was able to manage getting photos that were so raw and candid and beautiful. I'd recommend her to any bride or to anyone really who wants truly breathtaking photos. You can't go wrong with her!
