To me this is the top question I would be asking if I were in your shoes. I’m sure you’ve seen countless photographer’s sites, read the same spiel and have several options – So let’s get real, why Janelle Putrich Photography over everyone else?

I will make you feel comfortable, feel confident, and look amazing.

I am a firm believer that photos should not be awkward, and it’s really down to who you choose to photograph your wedding that will dictate that. Trust me to know your angles and I’ll offer the peace of mind and direction that will not only give you confidence on your wedding day, but freakin’ good looking images.

Ok Ok, we get it you make us look good, but what about those candid moments?!

What you’ll often find with wedding photographers is there are two types; One that delivers an album consisting of all candids that are very emotional yet not very flattering (those double chins though) OR one that delivers an album consisting of all posed images without any natural images just capturing those priceless moments.

When you book me you bridge that gap – you better bet that when grandma’s crying I’m right there sneaking like a documenting ninja, but when it’s time for bridals, I’m upfront, involved, and makin’ you look good. Who says you have to choose just one?! The best of both worlds!


“Janelle isn’t just one of the most creative people I’ve ever met, she’s also one of the kindest. Her level of joyful encouragement is off the charts, and she will make you feel like you’re ready to step on the cover of vogue magazine…”

Q + A

Where are you actually based? Can you shoot my wedding if you live in a different state?

Haha, I get asked this a LOT. I move around quite a bit, but I'm currently based out of Lancaster, PA although I visit Cleveland, OH very frequently (My family is there!). Freak yes I’ll travel to, for, or with you! In fact I encourage it!

I’ve shot in all different places including Iceland, Mexico, Chicago, Seattle – you name the place, let’s go!

How much are travel costs?

For travel costs, you pay for my airfare, car rental, night’s stay, and gas! It’s just what it costs for me to be there, so the price varies per wedding & location.

How long does it take to get my images?

I’ve heard stories of couples waiting 6 months, sometimes even a year for their images! What the heck, is that even real?! With me, I strive to get your images done within 2-4 weeks – I’m quite an impatient person, so I can’t imagine waiting that long for something I’m that excited about. You shouldn’t have to wait either!

What is the initial deposit to hold my date?

I require a $1500 deposit to hold your date – the rest is due 30 days before your wedding. That’s it, pretty simple! Let’s keep this whole money part an open discussion!
