I cannot say enough good things about the personalized service Janelle Brooke offered at my wedding. Even though my contract was for 10 hours, she stayed for about 12 the day of to make sure all essential shots were taken. It was nice to have complete trust in her artistic vision and photography skills. She went above and beyond making sure that my vision for the photos were fulfilled by printing out inspiration photos I gave her as well as visiting the location of the photo site the week before to plan some of the shots ahead of time! I was so nervous the wedding day since we were running late, and Janelle was wonderful about keeping all the make-up artists on schedule and being flexible about the getting ready shots. My bouquet did not come on time, and she came up with such great ideas to get beautiful portraits, using and arranging some of the objects in the room. These shots looked better than if I had the flowers! She is also has a fast turnaround with sending digital albums and proofs. Everyone was amazed they came back so quickly and I was able to send out thank you cards a month later, which is pretty unusual. My entire experience with Janelle was special, personalized, calming (also unusual!), friendly, and professional. She was the best choice I made for the whole wedding process.
We picked JBP because they truly care about their clients and their work. We interviewed 12 other photographers and JBP beat them all in our book. They were excited to work with us and are very detail oriented in their work. We worked with Terrie and she was amazing every step of they way. She spent extra time with us at our e-session, she came up to our vendor a week before the wedding to do a walk around so she would know where to shoot the day of our wedding. And on the day of our wedding, she was there early and was always nearby and checking in with me to make sure she got the shots that I requested. JBP is fabulous and we highly recommend them!
Janelle and Terrie are amazing photographers. They not only take beautiful pictures but they make your events so special and FUN! They make you feel like you're part of the team. They like to get to know the person first because they want to make sure that they're going to use the right style for your wedding. Everything went so smoothly on my wedding day and they didn't take me and my husband away from my family and friends. They wanted to do all the couple pictures before the guests arrived at the reception. They helped me and my husband enjoy the WHOLE wedding day. My wedding party had so much fun hanging out with them. They have never seen causal and fun photographers until they met the wonderful people at JBP!
Janelle was amazing! She was so easy to work with and cared so much about our happiness. Our pictures are beyond beautiful. She captured who we are as a couple. Thanks so much Janelle!
I knew I’d want someone special as our photographer not just the typical. I knew I’d want romantic not your average pictures. I wanted someone who could take awesome random shots and the posed shots. I basically just wanted someone awesome :) plus I wanted someone I clicked with. You need to click with a photographer. If you have any dislike your pictures will show it. So as I was having a rough week on my hardcore diet I at first let my fiancé do most of the talking until I perked up from my energy bar when we went to meet her. She was just amazing especially calling my ring bling :) I Just love that word bling! Anyway we just felt so at ease with her. I also loved the idea of a girl photographer because I just saw fun girly times. The day of our wedding she came with Terri and they both got right to work. They were on top of everything. I can’t wait to have babies one day and have her do pictures of our babies :) I am so in love with our wedding photos sneak peek that I’m so surprised we got so fast & cannot wait to see them all! Everyone says they are the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen, like a fairytale.
There is not enough room here to write about how excellent Jenelle (& terrie!) were at my wedding. Not only is Janelle a photographer, but she would up being my wedding planner for the day.
Anyone and everyone who has seen my engagement photos and the beautiful slideshow she put together has been beyond impressed. I am immensely thankful to Janelle for her talents and her patience. She is wonderful to work with. I would refer them to anyone looking for talented people to not only capture a meaningful moment but to create beautiful memories.
From the first moment my husband, Danny and I met Terrie at JBP last year we just knew right away that she was perfect as our wedding photographer. She made us feel so special from the start...and the best part, we just clicked with her and felt like we knew her for years! Terrie took the time to not only explain all the wonderful things she would be covering for our engagement shoot and wedding day shoot, but she also took the time to explain all the time and effort she would spend to make our wedding day pictures special and unique to us! Our engagement shoot was certainly a day we will never forget...we spent the day with Terrie taking such beautiful pictures that were completely Danny and I AND we bought pie and flowers! She was so patient, detail oriented and completely took the time to take pictures that captured us as a couple, in style and creativity. Our wedding day was also a day we will remember for ever and now, thanks to Terrie we have pictures that capture the storybook day we had. One moment in particular will always stick out in my mind, the moment before Terrie had me walk down the stairs to see my father for the first time in my dress. Terrie and I were alone in my room and she took some solo pictures of me. She reminded me to take some time for myself that day and I truly think her words calmed me down. Terrie captured the most beautiful moments of my life so far...the moments with my family and now, husband. I can't say enough things about Terrie's creativity, patience to detail and photographic vision. I feel so lucky to have had her capture my wedding day and now be someone I can call a friend! We love her SO much!! Danny & Maria
There are no enough fabulous things to say about the JBP family. I was lucky to have the opportunity to meet with Terrie back in August of 2011, just shy of a month being engaged, to discuss wedding photography packages. I was immediately in love with her personality and with the photojournalistic canvases adorned on the office wall. We were never pressured into anything but I knew, in that instant, that we had found our photographer. We had the opportunity to take engagement photos that fall (included in our wedding package), holiday photos the following year, and my bridal shower all covered by JBP. Every additional shoot and print was at a reasonable cost and arrived on time and spectacular. On the day of our wedding, Janelle arrived on time and with the most inspirational of words. She even helped to abate any bridal situations and helped keep the day moving at a timely pace. Janelle loves to capture nature in her photos and does so with a creative eye. Terrie was also at our wedding- in the day she began with the groomsmen, all of whom had nothing but great things to say about her style and humor. Throughout the wedding, Janelle and Terrie took extra care to ensure all family and friend photos were covered. They even treated us to some on the spot editing of photos. Needless to say, I cannot wait to make our album and am looking forward to having the JBP family photograph future family events!
janelle, terrie and the entire JBP team are AMAZING! i knew i needed to have janelle as my wedding photographer from the moment i saw her work, it was like nothing else i had ever seen before and i was captured by her vision. aside from marrying the love of my life, JBP was the best decision i made when it came to the wedding...they make everything so effortless and fun. i could go on and on but to sum it up they are professional, responsive, easy to work with, and will do anything they can to make your experience better. i will treasure our engagement & wedding photos for the rest of my life....janelle captured our love the way i feel it in my heart and to me that's truly priceless. thank you JBP!
PS - the boudoir shoot is a blast! highly highly recommend!
My wedding was over 7 months ago and I continue to receive the most glowing compliments about my pictures. From the moment my husband and I met Janelle & Terrie we were in love. They sat with us talking through the editing process, the day of timeline, things we might want to consider day of, etc. and this was all before we even had talked about signing a contract for our wedding. If they spent this much time with us before we committed, we couldn't imagine what it would be like when we did. We could not have been more right when we chose JBP.
Janelle & Terrie are so amazing to work with and make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. When we wanted to shoot our engagement photos on the boats at Central Park and then near a church in Chelsea, Janelle & Terrie came up with some additional gorgeous locations in the area to shoot at. They were so responsive to any question I had (and I had many) and never made me feel like I was asking something dumb (which I'm sure I did).
I feel so lucky to have found the gem of a team at JBP and I can say without any question in my mind that they are the best of the best. They aren't just shooting your wedding, they are capturing some of the most beautiful memories of one of your most important days of your life. I go through all of my pictures and know that it could not be any better. If you want the best, go with JBP!
If I could give more stars I would. Janelle and her team are amazing! I definitely recommend the e-session. My husband didn't think we needed it, but the photos from that day are some of our favorites. It gave us a chance to get to know Janelle and Kim, and also to be more comfortable being photographed. Janelle and her wonderful team gave us personalized attention throughout the process. We also had the photobooth at our wedding. All of our guests loved it, it was fun, and our guests appreciated being able to take home funny photos from the booth. Janelle and her team helped make our special day that much more special!!
Terrie was our photographer for our wedding day and she was absolutely amazing!!! Even though we are in different states she was totally flexible with our phone calls and meetings to scope out photo locations. She’s super easy to get along with and is such a talented photographer. She’s got a great eye for capturing the moment! I still can’t believe some of the awesome pictures she took of me and my hubby are actually US!!! We’re both just not great in front of the cameras and she just made us feel at ease and we actually had a lot of fun! I still think back to the good laughs we had while taking the photos. She’s also great with kids… our ring bearer can sometimes be a terror but she had him smiling and jumping with joy in the pictures. All of the pictures from our wedding day came out absolutely amazing! I’m so glad we went with Janelle Brooke photography for our special day because the only thing that lasts are photos and memories. I can’t wait to order our canvas photos to proudly display in our home! I would love to work with Terrie again. Maybe when me and my hubby start a family….. :)
When my husband and I discussed the things we would not skimp on for our wedding, photography was number one on both of our lists. After scowling the Internet and hearing numerous recommendations, we kept going back to JBP’s and we are so happy we did. Working with Janelle and Terrie was, and still is an absolute pleasure. They really make you feel like friends rather then customers. From our fun e- session to the big day, Terrie was attentive, thoughtful and extremely talented. I received so many compliments on the quality of our photos linked to the comment “I didn’t even realized she was there!” They captured every moment gracefully and the photo booth was a huge hit. It definitely was a challenge to create our album because there were so many great shots to choose from, but with the help of Terrie and Kim, we got it done, and I am SO excited to see the results! We are forever grateful to Janelle, Terrie and the team for capturing the best day of our lives.
Omg, where do I begin? Let me start by saying I met with over 7 different photographers and none of them measured up. I've seen amazing wedding pictures and I wanted the same for my wedding. I really wanted an amazing photographer who would be able to capture every moment and help me remember the day for the rest of my life!!! I came across Janelle and co.'s website on one of my many days of Internet research, and I instantly fell in love with her work and her fresh approach. Any one of her pictures could be in a bridal magazine. We met with her and decided on the spot that we had to have her. She was always sweet as pie and I never felt like I was doing business. She and her whole team really care. As the big day came closer, her organization, suggestions, and expertise really helped me along the way. Her and her team had everything covered, she even recommended an amazing photo site for us to take pictures! A few weeks before the wedding she told me that she would be providing us with an extra photographer, free of charge, because she was pregnant and didn't want us to miss out on any shots that her pregnancy would prevent her from capturing. We were blown away by this, and were sooooo grateful for how above and beyond she went for us. The day of the wedding everything went according to plan, our entire bridal party felt comfortable with her and her team. We didn't feel rushed yet we also didn't feel like we were taking pictures all day. She treated us like we were pieces of art, and made us all feel special. At one point in the evening I had a bridal meltdown about my venue and janelle was the one that came to my aid and calmed me down. During the party her team was in the thick of things but never in the way. I could NOT wait to see my pictures. On my honeymoon she actually sent us a teaser with like 3 pics and we were sooooo amazed and thrilled with the pictures. When we finally got all 1300 of our pictures we were blown away!!!! Our friends and family were raving about our pictures! They were just absolutely perfect, better then we could have ever expected! Janelle and her team are truly talented artists and I am soooo grateful to have had them apart of the biggest day of our lives! I wish I could give Janelle and her team 10 stars because not only are they some of the most talented crews they are also just a delight to work with!!!
Janelle is an amazingly talented artist! We decided to have Janelle shoot our engagement photos prior to the wedding. Janelle exceeded our expectations. My fiancee and I were both nervous, but when we saw the pictures we realized that we made the right decision when choosing Janelle. Janelle is not only talented, she is extremely warm, down-to-earth and wise beyond her years. She is a SWEETHEART. We displayed our engagement photos at our wedding on 1-14-12 and received endless compliments. One the day of the wedding Janelle and her assistant Terrie put us at ease. They are truly great people. Janelle is a fashion photography and she has an incredible eye. Terrie and Janelle go above and beyond the duties of an average photographer. Janelle had such a calming effect and Terrie helped the guys with their flowers. can go on and on about Janelle and her team..We love her and recommend her without reservation! If you want great photos that you will treasure forever that are not "cookie cutter" and that truly express who you are as a couple while making you looking beautiful at the same time, do not hesitate..Choose Janelle Brooke Photography to document your event! You will not have any regrets!
Janelle and her team were supportive from start to finish of the wedding process. Janelle herself is easy-going and a pleasure to work with, even during those stressful moments! Janelle was 7 or 8 months pregnant for our wedding and still pulled through and was pleasant and professional. I was especially appreciate and impressed with her offering a second photographer with no charge just in case she wasn't able to get around as well as usual. She ended up being vibrant and energetic throughout our whole wedding despite the 85 degree sunny day and when some stressful moments arose, Janelle was very calming and took charge so that we didn't have to worry. Almost immediately Janelle and her team provided a "sneak peek" of our wedding videos which was so exciting! Her photographs showcase her and her teams talent from the actual taking of the pictures and the polishing up prints. Even the prints we received came in a beautiful box with our picture on it. I have no complaints and would recommend Jannelle Brooke Photography to ever bride and groom I know!
Janelle and Terry were an absolute pleasure to work with! I planned my wedding in seven months and to say I was a little overwhelmed was an understatement! Upon meeting Janelle, I instantly felt at ease! As we spoke and she told me more about herself and her style, I felt a connection to her. Out of all of the wedding vendors I met with, she stood out as the most sincere and committed to what I wanted as a bride. Choosing a photographer became a "no brainer"...........it was JBP for us without a second thought! Our engagement session went beautifully and we received our photos in a timely fashion. They were perfect............candid, artistic and personalized to our needs. On our wedding day, I was frazzled because my wedding bouquet wasn't what I wanted. As soon as I saw Janelle, I knew everything was going to be okay. She catered to my needs and captured the type of photographs I wanted, even though it rained on my wedding day! JBP stands out above the rest...........PROFESSIONAL, GIFTED, SINCERE, ACCOMODATING, KIND!!!! We love her and HIGHLY RECOMMEND JBP!!!!!!
From the second we met with Janelle we knew she was the photographer for us. We immediately clicked with her and we're completely in love with all of her photos! We did our engagement session with her and Terrie and we had the best day with them, it just felt like we were hanging out with 2 friends for the day! Then Janelle and Paolo shot our wedding and the pictures came out AMAZING! Her pictures are so artistic and creative. We continue to get more and more compliments on our photos every day and everyone is always telling us how awesome our photographer is! On the day of the wedding, we were running a little late with our hair and make up but Janelle made sure to let me know that it was my day and that everything would work out just perfect and not to worry. She really helped keep me calm when I was freaking out about it. She made sure to capture every single moment of the wedding and did a really great job at it. I'd recommend JBP to anyone I know that's getting married! They are the BEST!
After meeting with Janelle the first time, I knew I had to have her as my wedding photographer. From that very first(and brief) meeting I felt that she had an understanding of the type of people we were and the kinds of photos we wanted.
The vast array of offerings from photo canvases to photo booths was very appealing and something that I wanted to take full advantage of. My husband actually talked me into the engagement session and I'm glad he did. It gave us an even better chance to work one-on-one with Janelle. She worked around our crazy, NYC schedules and some ridiculous weather to make the shoot go off without a hitch. We got the proofs back super quick and they were breathtaking. Better than I could have imagined. We got to be completely ourselves. Believe it or not, she even hooked me up with my fantastic hair & make up team.
The week before the wedding she was best friend- reassuring me about the timeline of the day. Answering all of eighty million questions with a smile on her face.
The wedding day was beyond words. She showed up before the sun was peeking out from behind the clouds. All of our photos that we absolutely had to have were taken before the ceremony even began(another thing my husband talked me into). Did I mention that we had the photo booth at the reception? It was the biggest hit of the day. At one point there was a line of people waiting to get in! All of our guests complimented and thanked us for it. I have found a photographer for life, or as long as she stays in the business.
I don't know where to start. When me and the future hubby got engaged the only aspect I was extremely particular about was my Wedding Photographer. I've seen many an album from family and friends over the last few years that go married and I always felt like something was missing in what I was looking at. I met with several photographers and came across the picture shown in Janelle Brooke Photography's profile, a gorgeous bride sprawled upside down on the bed. Although I don't consider myself "radical" or an "art enthusiast" there was something about this shot that screamed unique, special, AWESOME, and I was just drawn to it. When I met Janelle she took me by surprise as she was younger then me but has that way about her to put me at ease. She hugged me versus shaking my hand, and I was blown away by the photos on the wall of her studio. I truly feel that JBP is bound for great things and if I waited any longer I would not be able to afford her. Celebrities would use her, that is how good I think she is. We had our E Session in September and I was BLOWN away with the results. My Future Hubby is a guys guy and only did the shoot for me and she catered to him and made him feel comfortable and it showed in our pictures. I can't say enough good things about Janelle and Terri and her team. Book her while you can!
