Janae has been like a younger sister to me. She was one of my first models and has always been willing to pose for me whenever I've had some idea. I've worked with her on her senior portraits and some dance shots, so it was a huge privilege to get to photograph her bridal shots.

With her and her sister, Tina, getting married within a few months of each other, they opted to have some of their time together. Janae was married in December, but really wanted some images with the fall leaves so we took advantage of the last few warm days in October and went to the small chapel where she would married just a few months later.

Janae is such a warm and fun person and getting to work with her really was amazing. As a dancer, she instinctively knows how to stand and hold herself, which made her session so easy and fluid. A lot of her poses she worked out herself and she has a very high-class, editorial style to her.

During the winter session, she was such a trooper, getting out in the freezing Idaho cold. The cliche being unavoidable, it really warmed my heart to see her getting married.
