Janine’s photography is distinguished by technical precision combined with warmth and humanity. She finds moments rather than creating them. Her versatility and intimate documentary form allow her access to what might otherwise be the unseen image.

In addition to her commercial work, Janine is intimately involved with special projects abroad. She recently completed a six month documentary project while living in a secluded village in the Sri Lankan rainforest. She has also documented the lives of the Tremembés, an indigenous culture of northern Brasil. This intense training in participant observation carries over into her wedding, corporate, editorial, and portrait work. Read less

Janine was an absolute pleasure to work with. We interviewed a few photographers but she quickly stood out from the crowd not just based on her impressive portfolio, but also her personality. We didn't want just the typical posed wedding shots and she totally got the vibe we were going for from the start. On the day of the wedding, it was like she was part of the family. She blended in well, was a hit with our family and friends, and got some really nice candid shots we'll treasure forever. I would enthusiastically recommend Mapurunga Photography without question.

Anyone is lucky to have Janine as a photographer. She was very patient with a very anxious bride and such a pleasure to work with! Her photos are amazingly candid and you can tell she takes great pride in her work.

Janine Mapurunga can capture people. It's her portraiture that ultimately convinced me to hire her. I work for a wedding magazine, so I see tons and tons of wedding photos, and hers were the first that made an impact, and had the most lasting impact. Again, it's how she captures people. She was easy to work with from the start, and remained easy to work with through the process. She created a custom package to meet my budget and my needs, completely changing her offerings. It's important to have someone that will work with you. She was willing to travel outside the city to get photos, and built all the costs into one total, so it wasn't confusing. We were able to pay in two installments: a deposit, and then the remainder due about a week before the wedding. That worked great for us, and a deposit is normal and should be expected. The effects she did on the photos gave some of them a vintage feel, a modified sepia tone that really made things dreamy -- beautiful. Regular color shots are vibrant, and she worked around lots of direct light and shadows. She gave us a great variety, an online gallery, and she got the best portraits of our guests. Even when I had a bad idea, she honored it and let us try it and they didn't turn out great, but she worked with what I wanted every step of the way. She was also good at making guests and the wedding party relax and feel more comfortable with photos. She is not bossy, she is very humble, but not shy. She brings a great energy to the party and can capture all the shots but is never in the way. She dressed appropriately. We are so thrilled with our photos. Janine could charge much more for her work, but keeps it reasonable for turning out art. She offers so much more than wedding photos. She can capture the feeling of your day and the feelings on people's faces, as well as the large scenes (she got our entire wedding group -- guests, parents, all of us), and the details. Hire her! I highly recommend her. She was also timely and got me our photos when she said she would.

Janine is truly an artist. We didn't want the cookie cutter wedding pictures, but more something organic and that showed the love and soul of our wedding day. She captured the spirit and feeling of my wedding perfectly and my husband, friends, family, and I all love looking at the photos and remembering a special day. Janine is amazing:)

Like most people, I had never hired a photographer before. But now, after Janine Mapurunga provided us the most gorgeous photos of our special day, I would not hesitate to recommend her or hire her again! I believe she's so skilled and professional in her photography because she is intuitive and connected to people and the ebb and flow of human life. We have shared our photos in many formats with others; we were even lucky enough to be chosen as a featured wedding in a local wedding magazine! I cannot say enough about Janine and Mapurunga Photography. Contact her and find out for yourself!

Janine was great! She was really fun to work with, very creative and flexible. We didn't want traditional photos so we asked Janine to use her imagination. Our photos were fabulous. Janine and her assistant captured everything we asked for and more. Janine truly has an eye for beauty and for capturing the emotions of the day. When I look back at our photos a smile comes to my face and I remember what I felt that day as the bride. I would highly recommend Janine to anyone looking for an artist to capture your special day.

The moment I met Janine, I knew she would be our photographer. She was fun and lighthearted yet confident and capable. She had great style and I knew the pictures would reflect that. She did an amazing job. We love the pictures and the album she created for us is absolutely beautiful. She was a welcome guest at our wedding and it has been a pleasure knowing her ever since. I highly recommend Janine. You would be foolish to go with anyone else!
