Jeannette is a Texas wedding and portrait photographer based out of Houston, Texas and available for destination events. Jeannette started her photography business in 2015 when she was asked to take formal pictures for a family member. Having already been behind the camera for over 10 years, she quickly fell in love with documenting candid portraits and telling other people’s love stories through photographs.
Inspired by warm light, soft colors & real emotion, Jeannette strives to capture joy-filled and authentic moments that will reflect the true essence of love and commitment. She takes pride in illustrating the love shared between two people and giving you the best photography experience from beginning to end.
A hopeless romantic by heart and a deep appreciation for small details, nothing makes Jeannette happier than working with couples who are madly in love. From helping you pick stunning engagement outfits to providing you with the perfect timeline for your wedding day, Jeannette is there every step of the way.

I am so lucky to be able to pursue my dream in being able to capture joyful moments that people will cherish forever. My goal in all my sessions is to capture real emotions and memories that will become a timeless keepsake for generations to come. I strive to bring people’s love stories to life by creating luminous photographs in a rustic & romantic way.
One of my other passions in life is going on fun traveling adventures and hanging out with my best friend and soulmate Aaron. When I’m not taking pictures, you can find me planning our next big adventure together or watching Netflix and loving on my pup Max!
My love affair for photography began ten years ago when I was given my first dslr for Christmas. From that moment on, I would spend the rest of my days chasing golden sunsets and documenting blissful moments on camera. It wasn’t until I got to college when I realized my love affair with my camera started to grow tremendously. I knew in my heart that photography was more than just a hobby, it was a passion.
Jeannette is an absolute dream to work with! She took our engagement photos and we are stoked about having her as our wedding photographer in October. She does amazing work! You will not be disappointed in the slightest. She goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and confident in the shoot. Not to mention, she is very organized and professional throughout the whole process. We are absolutely pleased with her work so far and have no doubt she will do an amazing job at our wedding!
I am so overwhelmed with happiness! She is seriously the best. Not only does she have the talent, but she has the patience & love to capture beautiful moments! Prior to the session, she helped me pick outfits and even gave me recommendations. She made sure I felt comfortable with every pose & even took props specially for my session. I have finally found my personal photographer. Definitely has my recommendation! A person who goes that extra mile to produce an amazing session!
I know how important it is to find a photographer whose style fits your personal vision. My creative approach in capturing a couple’s day is by focusing on the heartfelt moments and the sweet details throughout the day. Whether it be a wedding, senior portrait or family session. I want to capture an unforgettable experience that will preserve the beauty of that special moment. I would describe my photography style as dreamy, romantic and natural. I love shooting in natural light and I am a firm believer in providing couples with true-to life-moments with images that tell the unique story of their big day.
I have an appreciation for hearing all about your love story and bringing your wedding vision to life. I take pride in establishing a personal connection and making sure that your experience with me is one you will cherish forever. My ultimate goal is for me to preserve the memories of your dream wedding in the most beautiful way by creating tangible photographs that will evoke the emotions felt on that day.
Each collection includes a complimentary engagement session or bridal session. This gives us the opportunity to get to know one another and also gives you and your fiance a feel of my style. Nothing makes me happier than working with couples who value adventure, romance, and laughter. I love authentic moments, surprise kisses, and letting loose. My all time favorite moments are the moments when you and your love get some time to soak it all in and enjoy the glow of wedding day bliss.
My favorite couples are the couples who are not afraid to live and love authentically. Anyone who expects a posed, formal affair is not the couple for me. I prefer to let my clients show ME how they love each other (with some minimal posing guidance here and there). Kisses in the golden sun are my favorite thing, so be prepared for lots of those! If you think I am the perfect fit for you, then I'd love to meet with you over coffee and chat all things wedding.

What makes your work different from other photographers' work? I take all of our photos in intimate, relaxed settings and try to use natural light as often as possible. My sessions are candid & fun!
How long does it take to get wedding photos back? One thing to be aware of while hiring a photographer is their turnaround time for editing. Will you be waiting 6 weeks or 6 months to see your wedding photos? My personal turnaround time is about 6-8 weeks, depending on the season. My goal is to deliver you high-quality images in a timely fashion so that you can enjoy your photos while the memories are still fresh.
How many wedding photos do I receive? Typically I will edit and deliver between 500-800 images from your wedding day. The number of photos you receive will depend on wedding party size, number of guests, and hours of coverage. Engagement and bridal portrait sessions will range from 60-75 images.
Will I get all of my photos from our day? Because each photograph is thoughtfully taken, your final gallery consists of all images from your wedding day, with the exception of blurry images, blinkers, and duplicate poses.
Do you travel for destination weddings or elopements worldwide? Absolutely! I LOVE to travel and always up for a life-changing adventure! Send me more information on your travel plans, and we will create a custom wedding collection to suit your needs. All destination weddings will require that the clients cover all travel fees, in addition to the collection investment.
What equipment do you use? I carry a Canon 5D Mark IV and a 5D Mark II as a backup camera body. I occasionally also bring a film camera for a different perspective. I use a variety of lenses to capture my subjects, but tend to use prime lenses. Prime lenses have a fixed focal length and usually allow for quicker and sharper images, which I find very helpful during weddings where things can happen in the blink of an eye.
When and how do we book you? Most brides contact me 6-12 months before their wedding date to make sure I'm available. This usually happens after the venue has been booked. After we've met and had a chance to discuss details, you can book me by filling out my online contract and paying the online invoice for the 10% deposit.
