Ivy and Ara Engagements|Whitney Kofford|Sundance Resort, Utah

The moment Ivy and Ara stepped out of the car, I knew something magical was about to happen.  As if shooting engagements at Sundance Utah wasn’t beautiful enough, she had this gaze that I am sure made him weak at the knees.  Thanks to the lovely Ivy, we were able to access areas of the mountain that were only available to employees.  It’s not just ever Joe Schmo that gets to enjoy these beautiful views.  It truly did have a delightful time with these two.  We laughed, we cried, and then we had coffee with Robert Redford while we watched some Sundance films (those last three things….not really.)  It truly was a great night with great company.  Sessions like these always remind me why my job really is so great.  They were just lovely, those two!

Morgan and Dan Wedding | This is the Place Heritage Park | SLC, Utah

This couple is nuts. in the best of ways. I just laugh the whole time I’m shooting them. They go from being insane and goofy and hilarious to seriously sexy faces in a split second. They have mad skill.

The wedding was beautiful. They chose the coolest location for the ceremony, I’ve never seen someone use that little old house and orchard before, it was so quaint and pretty.

The made everything, it was all DIY which i find very impressive when brides do that these days. The reception was alot of fun, delicious food, and and insane dance party. There were a lot of dance pics that were a little too cray cray (you guys know what ones I’m talking about haha)

Morgan and Dan I loved shooting you, i hope you have babies soon so we can shoot more!! haha

As of Late with Albion Fit | Albion Fit Fashion Shoot | Salt Lake City, UT

I’ve been shooting some awesome items for Albion Fit lately, I just love every piece!!

We shot these in downtown Salt Lake and at some local parks in Bountiful and Woodscross. I wanted the shoots to look  just like real moms just out jogging with their babes 🙂 Both the mom models in these shots are actual moms and the babies are their actual babies haha. A lot of people dont believe they are actual moms but THEY ARE! And they’re just gorgeous and healthy and fit. Such inspirations.

Heres some of my fave shots from the past few shoots!




Next Level Business! | Jessica Janae Photography Business Seminar


FINALLY! The business seminar we have been talking about for so long is here.

August 2nd held at our downtown SLC studio. {ONLY 20 SPOTS AVAILABLE}

If you want to know how I took my business from a one man show, super unorganized, not making nearly what I deserved for a simple Utah wedding to a full service photography business, with a 5 member team, downtown studio and shooting international weddings then this seminar is for YOU! 

Hear from guest speaker Tanner Bell, President and Co-Founder of Ragnar Events, about how he created a charismatic brand that both engages and inspires consumers. More than just an identity or logo, Bell provides first-hand examples of what makes a successful brand. This includes ideas on how to make your organization standout from emerging competitors and changing marketplaces, and how to create an inspiring platform that builds consumer loyalty.

You don’t even have to be a photographer to come, ANY web based business would benefit from the seminar. 

They will be teaching online marketing, successful use of social media, how to convert leads into profit and much more!


There will be 3 speakers at the seminar ,


Guest Speaker      Tanner Bell (Co-Founder Ragnar Relay Events, LLC)

Since then, the Ragnar Relay Series has grown from a single relay in Utah to the largest overnight relay series in the nation. The Ragnar Relay Series now has 21 races scheduled for 2014 and continues to grow in size and participant numbers. Ragnar is based in Salt Lake City, UT.
