Hey, I’m Jana (pronouns she/her), and I’m a full-time wedding & portrait photographer in Vancouver BC. I have an innate curiosity about people, and feel compelled to record their stories in photo form. (I can’t paint to save my life). I’m always studying how light falls on peoples’ faces, and how they light up around the people they love.
I treasure time far more than things – it IS my love language, after all. However, the bin of concert tickets, postcards, and notes scribbled on cocktail napkins that I still can’t part with are a tangible reminder of moments spent & feelings felt. Which is likely why this impulse to record became my career.
Finding a mid-century coffee table labeled “free” on the side of the road. (It happened!) // Camping with good friends & no Wi-fi // Ridiculously complicated board games // Friday night kitchen dance parties // Veggie burger + beer + patio // Concerts at the Commodore // Finishing a cup of coffee before it requires microwaving // Making travel plans. (I find the research almost as enjoyable as the actual trip) // Uploading images at midnight after a wedding (with my seizing claw hands) because I can’t wait to relive the whirlwind of emotion just experienced.
