Janell + Ryan


And thank you for stopping by and checking out our page. I (Janell) will be doing the updating of the page but my husband and second shooter is just as much as a member of this company as I am. We are both full time photographers specializing in weddings and Portraits. I thought I’d use this space to tell you a little about our love story and how we met and what brought us here.

We actually met many many years ago online on a site some of you may remember as Nexopia. I was there to talk to other moms when I ventured onto the photography forums as my love for taking pictures grew. That is where I saw this amazing creative photographer posting whom I just had to talk to and pick his brains. Turns out we enjoyed chatting and did that for several years. Finally in the summer of 2012 I made it to Vancouver where Ryan lived and where we finally met face to face. That was it! The rest is history! We were married July 2014.  It was a beautiful wedding filled with peonies and hydrangeas. We walked through wooden doors outside leading up to the splash of pink petals. Behind us white wooden windows swayed in the breeze. My dress was full  of sparkles and poof of course. The  men in grey vests and my boys in newsie hats and suspenders. It was truly magical! My love for wedding details really came out that day but I’m super excited for my updated style for our vow renewals in the land of the other piece of my heart, Scotland.

Our shared love of art and being creative definitely brought us together and makes our relationship loads of fun! We love to travel which we do mostly through destination weddings. They  have taken us to Mexico, Costa Rica, Vegas, Cuba, Victoria, Scotland, Newfoundland and the Okanagan. One day we hope we will make it to Ireland, Iceland and Louisiana.

On our down time we love to eat food. Who doesn’t!? Some of our favourites include our fav sushi joint,  and The Keg of course! We don’t venture out too much outside of photography. We are homebodies who just truly enjoy spending time together whenever we can wether it’s watching our favourite shows or gaming together….haha! We really like indie films, Stranger Things, and really watching anything with a good story or inspiration.  One of our all time favourite shows is Six Feet Under. Movies like Garden State and Moonrise Kingdom. Our music taste is eclectic but my favourites include Lana Del Rey and Civil Wars. I can pretty much over play it all as well as Breath Me by Sia. Everything that is hauntingly, depressingly beautiful soothes my soul.

I hope you enjoy our work. Our heart and souls go into what we do. This is our livelihood for our family of five.  <3
