Tessa and Cole | Engagements | Utah Desert

How I forgot to post these I do not know.

They’re my favorite engagements of all time.

These two people are just incredible souls. Never met anyone like them and my heart just explodes for them gah!

We drove 2 hours towards the sunset. Stopping anytime we found something interesting or that spoke to us and then shot until the sun went down. 

They truly make living an art form.

Jessica Janae Continuous light | Light for Sale | Tutorial


Hey guys! So for todays tutorial I wanted to show you a little continuous light that I have used for some time now for shoots that we will now be selling in our store!

They’re slim and small can fit in all my camera bags but give off so much light! I mainly like to use them for receptions during the first dance and the big group dancing! I have also used them when its super dark in my studio to make a beauty dish look on the models face. For weddings I will stand it on a table or ledge of some sort and get backlit shots as well as front lit. Sometimes I put one on a table behind the couple and then hold one in my hand to get the front of the couple which makes a very pretty look for the first dance! Anyways these lights are super fun to play with and a great thing to have at every reception cuz you never know what lighting you’re gonna run into!

We are selling them for $30 in the store! xoxo

Jessica Janae Photography Backstage Pass | Day in the Life

Hey guys it’s Dayna!! This week we thought it would be fun for you guys to see what goes on with Jess and I on a daily basis! It is just chaos all the time but somehow we manage to get through the day and have so much fun.

Here’s kind of what a normal day looks like for us. I get over to Jess’s house around 9 or 10… Or 11… 😉 And we go over what we need to get done that day. Most the time Jess has made me a beautiful (and long) to do list haha. Jess attempts to edit while her insane(ly cute) kiddos run rampant. We work through emails and talk with clients, which is usually interrupted by errands that need to be run and children that need to be fed. That’s pretty much our day, and then if there’s a shoot in the evening we get all the equipment packed up and ready to go and hop in the car! I love going on shoots with Jess. I always learn a thousand million things. Then when the shoot’s over we pretty much always stop for food because we’re starving… And because food. So yeah!!! That is our life!

Hope you guys enjoyed the video, come back next week for more insanity!!!

Shaelyn and Collin Engagements | Jessica Janae | International Wedding Photographer

I fell so in love with this couple, instantly. They are amazing together. They’ve been together for 8 years and even lived in Paris. I love photographing two people who really know and care for each other.

Everything the were wearing was from thrift shops and Good Will which just blows my mind because they looked so killer!! When she showed me her outfits I about died. And apparently this is how she dresses on the daily. Freaking love it.

Our shoot began in a gorgeous rose garden and ended in the mountains. They were so natural in front of the camera and were down for anything! I could hardly stop shooting. We went until it was dark and I had no choice to end the session.

I hope you enjoy !

She graduated from Utah State with a photography degree and just before joining the Jessica Janae team she was shooting photography in LA (the big leagues). I was drawn to her work instantly. She is so talented, and really knows her stuff. She teaches me something every time I’m with her. She’s also a wizard with film photography! She can shoot film at any shoot if you request it and you will not regret it, it always looks flawless. On top of being extremely talented she is also the most hilarious person on earth. She cracks up every client and makes everyone feel relaxed because she’s so chill!

So I also wanted to include one of Whitney’s film photos, just so you guys can see some of her amazing work even though some of you may have already seen it on Instagram! It’s just so unreal I had to post it here also. Seriously go follow her instagram and check out more of her stuff!

Hey guys Time for another backstage pass video! Wahoo ! So for this week we decided that I should probably start using my Twitter account that I’ve had for ever and used like twice ha ha. So I started the account up again and asked everybody to go onto Twitter and ask me whatever questions they wanted personal or about business. Then Dayna had The bright idea to try and make cookies with my babies while answering these questions.. Oh bless it you should have seen just the preparation for this. There was flour covering the kitchen and a broken egg before it even began!
These are my absolute favorite cookies in the world that my mom made for us while growing up. They are soft and chewy gingersnaps from heaven. We will post the recipe at the end for you!

Jessica Janae's Chewy Ginger Snap Recipe

Hunter and Mitchell Wedding | Provo, UT | Whitney

This wedding was nothing short of perfect!  Hunter and Mitchell met in high school when they were 15!  They casually dated while in high school.  Things got a little bit more serious in college, and then Hunter waited for Mitchell while he was on his LDS mission.  There is nothing quite like a good high school sweetheart success story!  They absolutely adore each other and each of them thinks they totally scored with the other (the best attitude you can have towards you significant other in my opinion).  Their reception was held in a big open coral that they decorated with the most incredible florals, cakes, photos, lights, and an ice sculpture.  They brought in THE BEST pizza truck (seriously holy cow), and set the tone with a beautiful vintage Rolls Royce at the entrance of the coral.  Every detail perfectly complimented each other and everything from the day went perfectly!  They also left me A TON of time to shoot photos (yay for me)!  Moral of the story, I LOVE Hunter and Mitchell!!

P.S. Notice a few special details (a pin that says cooper and heart sewn in her dress) that have special meaning to the couple.  Hunter’s younger brother Cooper
was in an accident in 2009.  Hunter and Mitchell both wore something close to their heart that represented him. Also notice many of these photos were shot on film!  See if you can tell which.

Jessica Janae Photography | Tessa Barton Bridals | Salt Lake Wedding Photographer

Tessa and I shot her bridals kind of on a whim. Didnt origonally plan on doing bridals and then the week before we were like, yeah lets just do something cool real quick. Just went for it. Which is how almost everything we shoot goes. She got two dresses for her wedding and didnt decide till right before this shoot which one she’d wear. So for bridals she wore this amazing purple one and on her wedding day wore another amaze ivory gown.

The incredible Vivian Makeup Artist did her makeup and Tessa brought some bunches of flowers and jewelry and we made a rad flower crown!

Normally I love to shoot in the evening, but I dont HAVE to be shooting in the evening to get good shots. So this shoot was right at the worst time of day for photographers. 2pm. and half way through it got super dark out like stormy dark which just added a rad vibe. You dont have to shoot in the morning or evening all the time. Use the weird light to your advantage!

Tessas wedding was a couple weeks after this and was just out of this world. So be looking out for that cuz you all will probably just die on the spot when you see it.

xoxo

Jess
