PORTRAIT & EVENTS PHOTOGRAPHER

hey there!

I'M JANALEE

​​I'm Janalee, I own JB Photography, except I feel totally weird when my photographers call me their boss- so of course they all do it. I started this company in 2015 and since then it has grown more than I ever expected. I absolutely love running this company - except for maybe during tax time!
My lovely husband is crazy supportive of me and this business always pushing me to improve my craft. My son Julian is my cutest albeit probably most difficult "client".
I shoot with a Canon R6. I have a couple lenses and a couple lights. I also have backup equipment in case something malfunctions, or god forbid I drop something.
With that fancy equipment, I want to create some beautiful photos with you. I want to pose you, prompt you, and help you be you in front of the camera. Every couple is different and therefore every photo shoot is different, but I promise we'll get some amazing shots.
So if you're a really cool, fun loving, adventurous couple, who wants to enjoy your wedding day, capture some amazing photos, and hang out with a pretty awesome photographer I'd love to work with you.

I CAN'T IMAGINE DOING ANYTHING ELSE

In 2021, I quit my day job and started doing photography as my solo full time job. In reality, I had been working two full time jobs for quite a few years. When I found out I was pregnant, I knew I could no longer balance the life of a teacher and the life of a full time photographer while also being a mom. So now, I get to be home with my baby most days, except when I'm in the studio spoiling a boudoir client or when I'm off capturing a love story on the weekend. I can say I finally found a healthy balance of work and life and I'm loving every minute of it.

I LOVE WORKING WITH PEOPLE WHO

are up for an adventure

If you're looking to capture some amazing portraits, along with some raw emotions, and candid moments while we dance in a field or play in a creek then I may just be the right photographer for you.

I don't expect you to be naturally adorable, but if you are I won't complain! My job as a photographer is to prompt you, pose you, and guide you in such a way that I can capture all your best moments.

I'M DAVID

hey there!

I am a father, husband, friend, photographer and full time "Papa". I am based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I want to begin by mentioning a little bit about why I got into photography; I have always been interested in photography, but it was when I started staying home as a full-time dad that I really immersed myself into the world of pictures. I realized the timelessness of childhood and want to capture those treasured moments of the life of my son and now my little girl. I believe in the importance of capturing these real moments and this has become the focus of my work. I would love nothing more than to capture your important moments. 

I'm also a published landscape photographer and I love incorporating that into my wedding photos.

WHAT JANALEE HAS TO SAY ABOUT HIM

David is a fricken' rock star. I can honestly say, this company wouldn't be where it is without him. He's always willing to go above and beyond for me and for our clients. And when it comes to photos? He's good- like really good! He took my wedding photos, so that says a lot right there.

His wedding albums are full of beautiful photos but some of my favorite shots from him are:

-How he incorporates landscape photography into his couple portraits.

-His groom photos. He seriously nails these. Everyone always focuses on the bride, he does both!

- His bridal party shots are full of life and laughter.

- His creative lighting shots.

I'M KRISTI

hey there!

My photography journey started when I was young. I loved taking photos of anything and everything. I finally got my first digital camera in High School, and also did film processing as well. I purchased my first DSLR in 2013 and never looked back. I began photographing weddings in 2017.

When I'm not behind the camera, I stay busy with my husband, our son Weston, and our dog, Drake. 

My goal as a photographer is to personalize your experience and provide you with elegant, timeless images of your loved ones.  I take pride in crafting a memorable photography journey. I look forward to working with you soon! 

WHAT JANALEE HAS TO SAY ABOUT HER

Kristi is my ride or die. She's been with me practically from the get-go! Kristi is my posing pro. She is always coming up with new poses to try with her couples and does a great job of staying fresh and up to date on the trends. Her wedding albums are full of beautiful photos but some of my favorite shots from her are:

- Her dress shots. She captures that gorgeous detail shot before the craziness.

- Her cuddled up couple shots that emanate love

- Her gorgeous golden hour shots. She's great at asking to steal you away for a couple minutes of golden perfection.

I'M TABER

Hi, I'm Taber! Mom of 6, wife, family manager, former EMT and a self-proclaimed photography nerd. I started in the wedding industry as an assistant photographer when I was just 16 [way back in 2006!] and instantly fell in love. From the intimate love-soaked moments to the crazy and hilarious dance moves at the reception, everything about it called out to my soul. I think having that kind of passion for weddings is not only important but necessary. If your photographer is just as excited about your day as you are, you know they're going to treat your wedding as if it were their own, which is exactly what I do. I go all in to get the best shots, constantly looking around for perfect candids, planning epic shots out days or weeks before the big day, and finding inspiration on the day of to come up with new and fun ideas for poses that match my couple's personalities. I want my couples to look back on their photos and not just see memories, but feel the love, happiness, and energy in them, which is why I always give every wedding day my all. So if you're looking for a photographer with a bubbly, energetic personality who loves your wedding day just as much as you do, look no further!
