I have a big announcement today!
I have decided to open up my services to other wedding photographers as a professional editor. Editing is something I actually enjoy a lot. I know many photographers who cringe when they think of editing hundreds or thousands of images. Sure, there's parts of a wedding day that aren't quite as exciting to edit as gorgeous couple portraits, but I find editing to be super relaxing. I know, I know, you're probably rolling your eyes, but it's true!
So, if you're a professional wedding photographer and need some help this season, I would love for you to contact me! I'm currently editing for a photographer already but would love to add one or two more to my schedule.
So, to answer the big question in the room: No, I am not done being a wedding photographer. Not completely, at least.
Over the past 11 months, it's become clear that being a mother has pretty much taken over my life. My daughter is the most important person to me and being able to stay at home with her is something I will never take for granted. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to care for her at all hours of the day. That is, with the exception of days where I am gone shooting weddings.
I love wedding photography, and it's been a huge part of my life for years and years now. I've captured countless weddings and documented just as many engagements. However, it's taking time away from my family. You see, it's not just the wedding day that I am gone. It's also the potential client meetings, the many email and phone consults, final timeline meetings and so on and on. Never mind the emotional involvement. Being a wedding photographer isn't just a one and done deal.
Instead of being a full time wedding photographer as I have been in the past, I am only taking on a select number of weddings, and would ideally love to focus on elopements and smaller, more intimate weddings. Why? Because I love the simplicity and pure focus on love and family on those smaller wedding days. They're not any less work, they just make my heart skip a beat.
So there you have it. Janne Photography - Private Photo Editor + Cincinnati Elopement Photographer.
